How to play with platinum just in time for spring.





We can hardly wait until Maleficent opens at our local theaters here in Chicago! But being fans of Angelina Jolie and the Disney villain, we had to find more about how the star was going to pull off the role, since the original film was animated. And did we get the full beauty scoop!

Special effects makeup artist Arien Tuiten worked with Jolie’s personal makeup artist Toni G to get the look down. The actress was in full makeup for 70 days, often for 16 hours at a time. Toni G used Kiehl’s Blue Astringent to prep her face before applying the prosthetics.

“We tried many, many lipsticks,” Toni G said…but finally settled on MAC’s Pro Longwear Lipglass in Anthurium, which is now part of MAC’s Maleficent Collection. The eye makeup was an inspiration from a labradorite stone…which also inspired the color of her creeped-out contacts. Maleficent’s nails are long and sinister. Jolie suggested painting the underside of her nails (tops were bone) a Louboutin kind of red.

Now we’re really psyched!
