How to Create the Mistress of Evil

Disney, the creators of a plethora of popular movies, is about to release the sequel to the villain centric film, Maleficent. Angelina Jolie brought the title character to life and made the once hated and feared character someone to feel sorry for. And she’s about to do it again in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.

Maleficent has an iconic look, with her horns and sharp cheekbones. Check out this video to see just how much work goes into creating the stunning and scary beauty of Maleficent.

So, aspiring make-up artists should take inspiration from this video and follow your dreams.
