Disney Villains Halloween Tutorial: Mother Gothel

Recreating Mother Gothel was interesting. I wanted to something crazy and theatrical like I have in the past few weeks but Mother Gothel has a more wearable look since…well…she’s a human not a witch or lion. And even her costume is pretty, well, pretty. A simple red dress, not the robes and headdresses of Jafar. So I decided to take the plunge and really try to do something I’m not too comfortable with: recreating a beautiful eye look.

Crazy but her eyeshadow really is beautiful. It’s smokey yet natural and her eyes look so big! Completely different than mine. So I busted out my Sonia Kashuk matte neutrals and Jewel of an Eye palettes. I fell in love with this look almost immediately, it’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now so it’s funny that I finally achieved it doing a Halloween tutorial!

Now of course the one day I need crazy curly hair, my hair is straight! I thought adding a hooded cloak would be a nice reference back to her sneaky stroll through the woods that revealed just how devious and manipulative Mother Gothel was. She’s the type of mother none of us want…and all of us fear!

Check out my YouTube tutorial here!

I know it's not as exciting as some of the past looks I've done but I really love this. It's such an
easy costume to put together, minimal work and cost and let's be honest, we all wait until the last
second to prepare for Halloween so this is perfect!

If you try this, or any, Mother Gothel looks let me know and link it down below. I'd love to see!
