These DIY Disney Villain Halloween Costumes Will Make You Forget About Being a Princess
As much as we love Disney princesses, there’s no denying that being the villain every once in a while comes with its own benefits — namely over-the-top face makeup. Where Belle, Cinderella, and Aurora often take the bare-faced beauty route, we can count on Cruella de Vil, Maleficent, and Ursula to slay everything from a red lip and razor-sharp contour to head-turning statement eyes and bold brows, sometimes all at once. Ahead, we show you how to embrace your inner villain for Halloween.

101 Dalmatians‘ villain might be evil, but her makeup is oh-so-good. Pair an emerald statement eye with a bold red lip, and before you know it you’ll look like the cruel devil herself.
To master the maniacal makeup look yourself, watch the full video tutorial below.
Maleficent’s makeup is anything but boring, but the trick to mastering her evil fairy godmother look is to don a set of piercing yellow contacts. Talk about a smize.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
