Nailed It? Celebrity Makeup Artist Dave Sucre shares his Maleficent Look



Dave Sucre Maleficent Look - Bellanaija - August2014

Ever since Angelina Jolie played the villainous character we all grew to love, Maleficent, various makeup artists have all tried recreating the evil look.

A few minutes ago, celebrity makeup artist David Sucre of Dave Sucre shared his version of the evil character on his Instagram page, complete with the horns. We must say we are loving it. Click here to see Eva Alordiah’s version.

He commented on the photo saying “I always bully every photographer to shoot me. Thanks @bighstudios for capturing my version of Maleficent. ….. yes I am obsessed with dat character. ….. makeup by #davesucre #davesucreStudio #davesucreglamdust #makeupinlekki #makeupschool #ProMakeupArtist

We have to ask, what do you think? Did he nail the look? We think Angelina would approve.

    It’s a little disturbing… but to answer the question, yes, he nailed it. His interpretation is more true to the original than Eva’s (she did pretty well herself).

      Why so aggressive? It’s not personal. You should take a look at his instagram page. He actually does good work

    He did an AWESOME job!!!!. People really need to stop being so negative towards someone who is so talented (check out his work on instagram @davesucre). Honestly how many of you can draw a straight line with a ruler, talk less of recreate such an iconic look? If you need to drop any comments (which you have not been forced to do so) you can give CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM which he can use when next he will be recreating a look, and guess what? I’m positive he will be recreating more looks so eat your heart out! Keep it coming Dave!! Haters gon’ haye#NegativityFreeZone

    U may have your reservations about the movie and d maleficent character, but hello, Dave just recreated a work of art! Make up isn’t easy oo, if not individuals and organizations won’t be paying large amounts of cash for the service. Kudos Dave. Great job.
