The Maleficent-inspired makeup by MAC has finally been unveiled. MAC presents wickedly-lavish sweeping lashes, as well as the centerpiece of the collection coming in the form of True Love’s Kiss – a highly-pigmented blood-red lipstick. The skin perfecting powders and highlighters also available can really create those defined cheekbones of Angelina Jolie (Maleficent). If the trailer of the film are anything to go by, nothing but villainous perfection will do.
Rick Baker, who worked within the prosthetic and makeup department for the film, said: “Everyone is familiar with the look of the original Maleficent cartoon character. It’s intimidating and hard to bring a cartoon character to life. Therefore, we chose to rethink the look rather than redesign it. Since this title role was played by Angie, I thought the look of the character should reflect mostly her own overall look. She had specific ideas about it and I worked with her to bring them to life – for example, it was actually her idea to add prosthetics to the face.”
