E.L.F. Disney Villain Collection! - Tutorial

As some of you may already know, E.L.F. (which stands for eyes, lips, face) has released a collection of palettes in the theme of Disney Villains!  For more information on the palettes, click here:

The E.L.F. Disney Villain collection includes three palettes: Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations, Evil Queen from Snow White and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. I picked up the first two at my local Walgreens and so far I am in love. Furthermore, while I have always known that E.L.F. is a cruelty free company, I recently learned that they are also vegan!

Here is a quote taken from their website ( in regards to their stance on animal cruelty:

"We do NOT test on animals or endorse such practices. Our products do not contain animal derived ingredients. Beeswax has been replaced by synthetic beeswax and lanolin has been replaced by Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladinpale-2. We currently support HSUS and are partners with PETA in the Caring Consumer Project. Please see our philosophy page for further explanation on our company."
The Cruella palette is called Evil Everyday Eyes and features great neutrals for everyday. I found this palette took me easily from day to night. Each palette contains both a daytime and evening look. The red pencil that comes in the evening look part of this palette is AMAZING! I wore it out and it lasted all day without drying out my lips. It is the most amazing true red, and the lip pencil itself was surprisingly creamy.  

This tutorial will feature the daytime look from The Evil Queen palette called Devious Dramatic Eyes.  Here is a closer look at the inside of the palette which includes a real mirror, instructional booklet, false lashes, lash glue, 8 eyeshadows, an eye primer and two lip/cheek pencils!

The mirror portion on the left, folds back to reveal instructions for a day and nighttime look.  The laminate picture of the queen flips to reveal a picture of her wearing each look, so that you can see the picture along with the instructions. The back of the package lists its contents, as well as the ingredients for each product.

 Note the "no animal testing" logo in the lower left of the packaging above the bar code.
After applying my usual foundation, highlight, and concealer, I began by priming my lids with the included eye primer. I really like this primer, and found that it does make my makeup last all day. If your skin is any darker than me (which is most people), you may want to add a layer of white such as the NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk or another white base to help the colors pop. You can spread out the primer with your fingers, but I chose to use a concealer brush so that I could get a very fine layer.

Next, I applied the first eyeshdadow color in the palette called One Bite just under the brow bone with an E.L.F. brush (brush not included).  This is a very shimmery light gold color. You only need a tiny bit to get the desired look. Don't worry if it appears too shimmery at first, we will blend it out later.

Then, taking a small brush, I highlighted the inner corner of my eyes using the second shade in the palette called Vanity, which is a warm peach shade.

Next, I took the third color from the palette called Narcissist and packed the color onto the lid using a flat shadow brush. This color is a very light lavender.  You may need to pack on quite a bit to get the desired intensity because the color is soft, which is exactly what makes it perfect for daytime.

 Next, I took the last color in the top row, called Potion, and applied it to the outer third of my eyelid and blended it up into the crease. As an optional step, you can bring a little bit under your lower lash line if you desire. I found this color to be quite pigmented, and blend smoothly. This is a shimmery burgundy shade.

Next, take a clean blending brush, and blend all of your colors together. I began at the brow bone, and blended the shade called One Bite down a little bit to take down some of the shimmer. Then I blended started at the outer corner, to make sure the transition appears seamless into my lid shade.


Remember, this is meant to be a daytime look, so we want to tone down the shimmer and make it look natural. I then groomed my brows and applied 2 coats of my favorite mascara after curling my lashes. 

Next, I took the included lip & cheek color, and drew little dashes on my cheek, then blended out using my finger. 

Start with just a little cheek color at first, then blend out until you get the desired look. Add more as needed.

Finally, with the same mini pencil (included) I lined and filled in my lips.

I then closed my eyes and sprayed my entire face with my Dew Me by Urban Decay which is a moisturizing makeup setting spray. And the look is complete!  What do you think? Do you have any of these E.L.F. Disney Villain palettes? If so I'd love to hear about it in the comments below.

Wishing you all a very villainous beautiful day!
