Ursula Makeup Tutorial

Create a look that’s more than body language with this quick Ursula makeup tutorial.

This month, we’re rounding up sweet makeup looks that can pull together your favorite Disney villain Disneybounds or costumes.

Last week, I showed off a wicked Maleficent look. This week, we go unda da sea.

Ursula is Divine

For an Ursula inspired look, it is almost necessary to go very big with your makeup.

Ursula was inspired by Drag Queen, Divine, after all. The perfect way to pay tribute to the real-life inspiration behind Ursula is to exaggerate your makeup look.

To achieve this look I used The Imagination Palette from Morphe.

It has neutral colors as well as bright and eccentric colors as well. The array of color options helped me to create a seamless gradient effect with the shadows.

Tentacle Chic

If you look closely, the tentacle is actually a sticker! I cut it out of black vinyl with my Silhouette machine.

If I were to wear this look to a party, I would have drawn it on with a fine tip black liquid linerbut stickers are perfect for photoshoots!

Even Villains Wear Glitter

To fill in the tentacle (which I connected to my eyeliner) I used a purple glitter gel from ColourPop.

There are so many colors to choose from, and I always wear glitter at WDW. It just makes sense!

I also found my purple lipstick from Too Faced, which I don’t get to wear nearly as much as I’d like to. This is a color that has come in handy for a few of my other Disneybounds.

Seaworthy Gloss

You may be wondering how my lipstick looks so glossy. It is Melted Latex Liquified High Shine Lipstick from TooFaced.

I like that this type of lipstick gives me a dramatic, almost plasticky look. It is very sticky, and I only wear this type of finish when I want to “up the drama” with my makeup look.
