In just two days, the classic fairytale of Sleeping Beauty will be presented in a new "updated" version in "Maleficent". Angelina Jolie takes on the beloved villain donning exaggerated cheek bones, fiery eyes, and a set of wings you never knew she had. The purple get up and mint toned skin were clearly left in the past however, a color choice that M.A.C took note of when they designed their new collection based after this stunning, powerful creature.
In 2010, M.A.C cosmetics invited us all to get wickedly beautiful with their "Venomous Villains" collection. The collection featured a variety of our favorite Disney villains (even the voodoo doctor from Princess and the Frog) and pulled colors from the animated films. All of the Maleficent items were either hues of purple or green:
I'm always on board for a good purple lipstick!
The previous M.A.C Maleficent items were very cartoony, so much so you really shouldn't wear more than one item from the collection at any given moment. Purple lips need a nude eyeshadow; not a galaxy green/blue affair.
The new collection however reflects Angelina's flawless pale complexion, her drastically red lips, and even includes flash lashes to recreate her otherworldly eyes.
The collection may seem a bit dull compared to the old Maleficent items but personally I love a good natural look with a fun bold red lip. The fact that the new collection is natural looking makeup means M.A.C fans can enjoy the products daily (those candy color eyeshadows only come out on the weekend).
Shop the collection here for great nude items and the colors you need to contour your cheekbones like Maleficent… just don't expect ANY blushes. A powerful woman like Maleficent blushes for no one.
See the trailer below! The movie is out on Friday xo
