INSIDE MALEFICENT'S LOOK:
1. It was Angelina Jolie's idea to have the Lady Gaga like Cheekbones.
2. Rick Baker created multiple sets of prosthetic cheekbones until the decided on the perfect pair.
3. Angelina Jolie, came up with the design for her colored contacts and was very involved in designing Maleficent's look.
4. Angelina's personal make-up artist, Toni G, did her make-up and applied her prosthetic cheekbones and nose piece everyday.
5. They wanted Maleficent to look beautiful and unlike the "greener" version of Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty.
Here's the I made for How To Do Maleficent Costume Makeup and below I'll list everything I used for the look and how I got the costume:
What I used for Maleficent's make-up:
FOUNDATION: Pale Ivory Foundation (I used Givenchy Photo Perfexion)
CONCEALER, CONTOUR & HIGHLIGHT: RCMA VK Palette in #11
POWDER: any translucent powder
CONTOUR POWDER: Taupe Eyeshadow from MAC (I also used a dark taupe grey from my Ben Nye Essentials palette to add depth to cheekbones at the end)
Cream Eye Color: MAC Paint Pot Soft Ochre
White eyeliner for the waterline: OCC Feathered Eyeliner
MAC Eyeshadow colors in: Brun (dark blackish-brown), Concrete (taupe brown), Vex (light pearl with green-grey hue), Ground Brown (dark reddish brown), Goldmine (gold shimmer), Brule (soft Ivory) and I used some grey-brown and black from myP: BEN NYE ESSENTIAL PALETTE
BLACK EYELINER: I used Smolder from MAC applied with an angled brush
MASCARA: any dark black mascara
FALSE LASHES: I used two pairs- Urban Decay lashes in LURE and Flutterlashes in
MALEFICENT CONTACTS: I ordered the Maleficent Contacts from Exotic Lenses.
I'm not good with contacts and it took us at least 45 minutes to get one contact in my eye! ha ha ha
BROWS: Dark brown eyebrow gel: Anastasia of Beverly Hills in Ebony
LIPS: Cherry Lipliner from MAC with Urban Decay Super Saturated High Gloss Lipcolor in F-Bomb to replicate the slight-gloss, red that Toni G searched hard to get, that not matte, but not glossy lip color.
*And the MAC RED lipstick is almost an exact dupe from the Red from the Maleficent Collection.
MALEFICENT NAILS: I got acrylic nails put on to look like Angelina's nails in Maleficent, they are much pointier and longer than I'd normally wear, and I used a nude color from Essie, which name I can't remember...ugh:
HOW TO MAKE MALEFICENT HORNS:
Plastic Maleficent Horns which looked like a party favor hat: stuffed with foam and then duct taped to be 3-dimensional, then wrapped with satin strips on a head form, and glued onto plastic:
MALEFICENT COSTUME: I actually had my friend Vanessa Gonzales, who's an amazing costume designer, make the Maleficent collar, cape and brooch. She had to hunt for wire at Home Depot to make the flared Maleficent cape.
MALEFICENT COLLAR: just a piece of black fabric folded and safety-pinned in the back.
