Makeup Tips From Disney
Wicked Beautiful: Makeup Tips Inspired By Disney’s Sexiest Villains
Vampy red lips, razor-sharp cheekbones, super arched eyebrows — say what you will about the evil villains of Disney films, but they totally nailed their makeup routines. And the beauty world has taken note, from rose-stained lips on the red carpet, fantastical Limited Edition Disney Villains Nail Art Kits (available on eBay) and of course, MAC’s hotly anticipated limited edition “Maleficent” makeup collection, hitting shelves in May, in conjunction with the film’s release. Cull these villainous beauty tips and be the fairest of them all. —By Charlotte Rudge, Shine Staff

Rule #5: Razor-sharp cheekbones:
Lay off the bronzer and blush in favor of a paler palette. Start by sucking in your cheeks and with a sculpting powder one or two shades darker than your natural tone (M.A.C Cosmetics Pro Sculpting Powder in Shadester, $16.50), trace a diagonal line from the hollowed part toward your ear. Finish by dusting a non-shimmery highlighter along the tops of the cheekbones.

Rule #1: Blood-red lips
Using a lip pencil in a deep red, trace the perimeter of your mouth, then fill in the rest of the lips. Next, take a flesh-toned highlighter pencil (try Benefit Cosmetics High Brow, $20) and line the edges of your mouth to make the color pop. “The effect is very cold and glamorous,” makeup artist Susan Posnick tells Yahoo Shine.

A shock of hair color:
Cruella De Ville’s half-white, half-black hair matched the adorable dalmatians she coveted.
Try the two-toned look temporarily with White Hairchalk Edge Blendable Hair Color, $7.95, which, thankfully, washes out after a few shampoos. No dalmatians included.

Rule #3: Matte eyelids
Using a nude, matte eye shadow (our pick: NYX Cosmetics Nude Matte Eyeshadow, $4.99) position the brush at the end of the outer corner of the eye and swipe inward.
Then, line your eyes with a coal black pencil, as close as possible to the lash line. The effect: Sunken, mysterious

Rule #4: Super-arched Eyebrows
Eyebrow designer Eliza Petrescu suggests filling in your brows with short, wispy strokes using a pencil that best matches your natural shade. You can extend the outer ends of brows as far as you like — the farther they go, the more dramatic they look.
Then, clean the edges with a highlighter pencil for a sharper shape. “It’s very va-va-voom,” Petrescu tells Yahoo Shine.
