One of the best parts about Halloween is dressing up in things you wouldn’t normally wear in your day-to-day life.
When October 1st hits every year I feel like the regular rules of style and makeup gets thrown out the window and everyone has 31 days to express themselves in more eccentric and spooky ways!
The Disney Villains, in my opinion, are the most glamorous characters and they all have slay-all-day looks.
My personal favorites are Maleficent, Hades, and Ursula. I find them to have the most attitude and of course, the greatest style.
Although I can’t wear a costume for every day in October (I don’t have that many costumes!), I absolutely can do Halloween inspired makeup and what better way to celebrate Halloween season than by paying tribute to some of our favorite Disney Villains!
Blend the Rules
Maleficent is the most misunderstood villain. She’s also one of the most glamorous and intimidating villains, even more so after Angelina Jolie’s performance as this menacing character.
Doing Disney Villain inspired makeup is similar to Disneybounding. You pick the main colors from your character’s color palette and you blend.
In the live-action movie, Maleficent, Angelina Jolie sported a deep red lip and very angular contouring (and prosthetics).
I chose to pull dark shades from Maleficent’s original color palette from the 1959 animated classic, Sleeping Beauty.
Remember, it’s not about getting that exact rose-red lip, but emulating various colors from her overall look.
I did a bit of a spin on the traditional winged eyeliner. I decided to make my liner look like Maleficent’s wings. If you look closely, my wings are extremely precise. I did this by using a sticker!
I have a Silhouette machine that allows me to cut out whatever shapes I want out of vinyl. The downside to using stickers is that the adhesive doesn’t last all day.
If I were to wear this look out of the house I would have created a stencil with my Silhouette machine and then filled that stencil in with a black liquid liner.
My favorite eyeliner to use when you need to create a precise line or shape is Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner, which can be found at Sephora.
Blending is the key to a fantastic makeup look.
Blending your powder eyeshadows allows you to mix colors that normally wouldn’t go well together. The transitions between your colors look seamless and natural if you really focus your time on blending.
Maleficent’s main colors are green, purple, and black. For this look, I chose to blend the colors from light green, to a deeper green, to Maleficent’s signature purple hue.

I used the Sleeping Beauty eyeshadow palette from Bésame Cosmetics to achieve this look. My favorite thing about this palette is that the geniuses at Bésame developed the exact shades that were used in the original movie.
They pulled the exact hues used to create Maleficent and Aurora from Disney Studios Ink and Paint department.
You can get the palette, which is on sale now, over at shopDisney!
