Angelina Jolie Talks Maleficent's Makeup

Angelina Jolie seems to completely inhabit the role of Maleficent in the upcoming movie of the same name. From the not-quite-human eyes to her disconcerting cheekbones, the talented creative's behind the movie -- led by Jolie herself, who’s an executive producer -- have fabricated a character that is both beautiful and terrible at the same time. Which is exactly the point.

But it wasn’t easy. No detail, right down to the pointy teeth in the back of her mouth, was overlooked. Prosthetics specialists, makeup artists and scores of costume designers worked together to bring Maleficent to life. And we were lucky to snag a few of them – special effects makeup artist Arjen Tuiten, Jolie’s personal makeup artist Toni G and costume designer Rob Goodwin -- to spill some fascinating intel about how they turned Jolie into Maleficent.

Those hyper-chiseled, Gaga-esque cheekbones are the first thing you notice when you look at pictures of Jolie as Maleficent. And she had to work to get them. Jolie contacted special effects makeup master Rick Baker and her personal makeup artist Toni G, who conceptualized her look. Arjen Tuiten then worked with Baker and Toni G to make the actual prosthetics. He also did the daily work of applying them to her face.

According to the two makeup artists, it took about three hours to apply the makeup and one hour to remove it every day. The actress was in full makeup for 70 days, often for 16 hours at a time. Toni G used Kiehl’s Blue Astringent to prep Jolie’s face before applying the prosthetics to remove oil, but that’s all she could use, because otherwise the silicone wouldn’t stick. The team removed everything at the end of the day using a mixture of coconut and argan oil reports E News.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
