3 Looks, 1 Palette - ColourPop x Disney Villains Misunderstood

10 Apr 2019

I don't know about you, but I'm rather enjoying this whole do-a-load-of-lifestyle-posts-then-randomly-drop-some-beauty-posts format. Sure, I love chatting about my life and sharing all my goings on with you all, but it's so bloomin' nice to indulge in some makeup talk every now and then. If you've been keeping up with my blog, you'll know that my most recent post was all about the ColourPop x Disney Villains collection and what I bought from it. In that post, I said to keep your eyes peeled on my Instagram for some makeup looks, but I loved playing with this palette so much that I wanted to share the looks here too!

As a side note, in '3 looks' posts that I've done before, I've done at least one 'every day' look. Because of the crazy colours in this palette, I've thrown all caution to the wind and stuck two fingers up to every day looks. I wanted to go all out with colour and that's exactly what I've done. So today, we're all about glam and avant garde (I will say though, I did do a day look with the palette for an evening pub trip - Devious in the crease, blended out with Tragic and a swipe of Mongrels on the lid. It worked a charm).

For each of the looks in this post, I only used the Misunderstood palette, but because of the range of colours in the palette, I found that I didn't struggle at all with using just that palette. It's also worth me saying that each of the looks I have created were inspired by Disney Villain, so let's hop into it!


"You'll have your looks... your pretty face... and don't underestimate the importance of BODY LANGUAGE."
Ursula is my favourite Disney Villain. She's the right amount of nasty mixed in with sass, spell-casting and a whole heap of body confidence. Plus, she's a freaking sea witch with tentacles. It doesn't get much more bad ass than that.

For this look, I really wanted to go in with the bright purple and the blue shades. Because of this, I was a bit worried about fall out, so doing this look was actually the first time that I've ever done my eyes before my face! It felt rather odd, but it worked a treat, so I may end up doing that more often. Here is what I came up with! 
  1. I used MAC's Painterly paint pot to colour correct my lid and create a tacky base for my shadow.
  2. Using a pointed brush, I carefully created a cut crease line with 101, before blending out with Forest of Thorns. I added more 101 and Forest of Thorns into the mix until I had created a blend that I was happy with, being careful to keep my lid colour free.
  3. I used a tiny bit of Makeup Revolution's Conceal & Define to clean up my lid and define the edge of the cut crease, then I went in with The Fates. I packed this on to my lid with a flat packing brush, following the line of the cut crease and fading it out at the tail. I also left the centre of my lid bare.
  4. Into the empty space on my lid, I packed Jetsam. I also added this into my inner corner as an oceanic highlight.
  5. For the lower lash line, I took Facile on a fluffy brush and smoked it out slightly with 101. I wanted the green to be a bit more noticeable, so I added a tiny bit of Diablo on top using my little finger.
  6. I added liner using my No7 Stay Perfect liner and a coat of mascara using my Soap & Glory Thick and Fast, and the look was complete.
I absolutely love this look and I'm really chuffed with how it came out. It isn't super in your face, but it isn't exactly quiet either. I had been tempted to paint on some bubbles, but I really wanted Ursula's look to be more glam than avant garde. I wanted it to be something that Ursula would wear to a witches ball, so any sort of crazy detailing wasn't going to happen.


"Keep the little beasts. Do what you like with them... drown them!"
So, while Ursula is my favourite villain, I think Cruella is the scariest of them all. What person gets joy out of hunting down puppies to try and kill them and make them into a coat? It's even scarier when you remember that this is a character in a kid's film!

For Cruella's look, I wanted to be a bit 'out there'. She only seems to wear green eyeshadow in the movie, so that gives you a pretty blank canvas to work with, but the obvious thing to go with is black and white. So in my look, Cruella has got her wish and is living her life in black and white spots... check it out!

  1. I used MAC's Painterly paint pot all over my lid to colour correct and create a tacky base. I then went in with a packing brush and coated my entire lid in No Spots until I was happy with the coverage.
  2. I spritzed a fine detailer brush with Urban Decay's All Nighter setting spray, then dipped into 101. I painted black splodges in random shapes and sizes across my lid to mimic Dalmation spots.
  3. Using my finger, I smudged Facile on my lower lash line to represent Cruella's green eyeshadow, and added the tiniest bit of 101 closer to my lashes.
  4. I added a coat of Soap & Glory's Thick and Fast mascara, and I was done!
Surprisingly, this look took the longest, but it has the shortest number of steps to it! I suppose when you break it down, I only used three colours, but painting the spots on to my lid made it feel like I was going for hours. I never ever do looks this wild (and I know, this isn't even that crazy, but it is for me), so it felt so cool to be wearing something like it! And no, I didn't go outside with this look on, but my eldest goddaughter's birthday is coming up. She's having a Halloween princess themed birthday (in May... don't ask), so if I could easily recreate this and go as Cruella!


"You poor simple fools, thinking you could defeat me. Me? The mistress of all evil?!"
My final look is inspired by the one and only Maleficent, the misunderstood fairy. However, my inspiration was taken from the animated Maleficent, who is definitely a lot more nasty than Angelina Jolie's Maleficent. She isn't one of my favourite villains, but I strongly associate her with purple and green, so when I saw Forest of Thorns in the Misunderstood palette, I just knew I had to do a Maleficent look. The shade was named after her, so it would be rude not to!

Like Ursula, I wanted to do something that was super glam, so I went for a smoked out halo eye with my signature cat wing. Take a look at how I achieved it!

  1. I used MAC's Painterly paint pot to colour correct my lid and create a tacky base for my shadow.
  2. Using 101, I traced out where my wing would go. Then, using a fluffy brush, I added 101 to the outer and inner portions of my lid, smoking and blending it upwards.
  3. On a packing brush, I took Facile and packed it on my lid, slightly overlapping 101 and leaving the centre of my lid bare. Using the fluffy brush and a touch more of 101, I blended these two together to remove any harsh edges.
  4. Using another clean packing brush, I took Diablo and packed it on to the centre of my lid, smoking to upwards and overlapping Facile slightly. I patted gently over the edges of Facile a few times to make sure the the colours faded into each other nicely. I also added a touch of Diablo to my inner corner.
  5. I took Sing on a fluffy brush and smoked it out on my lower lash line. Then, to make the colour pop even more, I took Forest of Thorns on my finger and gently dabbed it over the top.
  6. I added my cat flick using the No7 Stay Perfect liner and a coat of Soap & Glory's Thick and Fast mascara, and the look was complete!
This is my favourite look out of the bunch. When I was wearing this, I felt like such a bad ass and kind of in love with how the green made my eyes look. I was pleased that I decided to use the purple in a subtle way, otherwise I could have ended up looking like The Joker again! That little pop on the lower lash line... it just does things to me.

So those are the three bold looks that I created with the Misunderstood palette from the ColourPop x Disney Villains collection. I had a heck of a lot of fun putting them together and while I know they're not perfect, I'm not a makeup artist. I just like putting stuff on my face and taking photos of it! I'm really looking forward to seeing what else I can create from this palette - there are just so many possibilities!

Have you tried the Misunderstood palette? Which look did you like the best?
