Step 1: Foundation

Apply foundation all over your face. If using prosthetic cheeks, apply a thin layer of pros-aide to the back and stick them to your face. If not, proceed to the next step.

Step 2: Nose Contour

Contour your nose with beige eyeshadow, brushing straight down the sides and under the tip. Drag shadows down from the nostrils and blend.

Step 3: Cheekbone Contour

Contour your cheekbones, starting at the hairline and dragging them to the center of your cheeks. Be generous with this part.

Step 4: Mouth and Cheek Shadows

Drag the shadow down along the sides of your mouth and brush some shadows under your cheeks to connect your nose to the contour line.

Step 5: Temple, Forehead, and Jawline Contour

Apply contour to your temples, forehead, and jawline, making your jawline look sharper and more square.

Step 6: Highlighting

Use a light powder to highlight areas such as the tip of your nose, the center of your nose, the top of your cheekbones, above your lips, around your chin, your jawline, brow bone, and under your eyes.

Step 7: Lips

Use lip stain to fill in your lips, overdraw them a bit, and make your upper lip slightly wider and sharper in the corners. Overdraw your bottom lip as well for a fuller look. Go over the lip stain with matte lipstick and add shadows to the corners of your mouth using a dark burgundy pencil.

Step 8: Eye Contour and Brows

Contour your cheeks with a dark brown powder to create a sharper look. Dust it under your nose and add shadows to your eye sockets. Fill in your eyebrows with a dark brown eyebrow gel, focusing on creating a defined arch and fuller middle.

Step 9: Enhancing Features

Go back in with white powder to enhance your jawline and blend it in. Add more contour to your cheekbones for a sharper look.

Step 10: Eye Makeup

Apply light brown eyeliner to your lower lash line and extend your tear duct. Use dark brown eyeshadow to lift the outer edges of your eyes. Highlight the inner corners of your eyes with white highlighter and apply gold eyeshadow to the center of your eyelids. Apply dark brown shadow around your eyelids and blend everything in. Create a dramatic cat-eye look with black liquid eyeliner on your upper lash line.

Step 11: Finishing Touches

Add contact lenses, curl your eyelashes, apply mascara, and optionally add false lashes. Use pros-aide to glue on elf ears and foundation to blend them in. Put on a wig cap and secure your hair with an Elmer’s glue stick. Apply your Maleficent wig and horns, and use eyelash glue to secure the lace front of the wig.
