Through The Power Of Makeup, This Artist Transform People Into Real-Life Disney Villains

From Hades to Scar, Jafar, and beyond.

"Seeing Disney characters that I have always cherished come to life is a magical experience," says Audrey Logeais, 31, a longtime Disney and Pixar fan. 

Logeais channels such passion into her work — she's been working as a designer for television series for the last nine years and two years ago, she attended makeup school. 

"I have mainly been involved in fashion photo shoots, but my objective is to work on American films," she tells A Plus in an email. "It would be my dream job to get to do the makeup for feature-length films such as Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Alice in Wonderland, or the upcoming live-action Disney movies." 



In the meantime, Logeais has been showcasing her talents for makeup on her Instagram account. There, she transforms people — including her partner, Ahmed — into various Disney villains: Hades from Hercules, Scar from The Lion King, and Jafar from Aladdin, to name a few.

When asked how she started turning people into these villains, Logeais says it all happened by accident.

"My partner, Ahmed, and I went to Disneyland Paris for their Halloween party, dressed up and made up as Jafar and Maleficent. Although the makeup I had done was rather light, people actually assumed we were official employees of the amusement park and requested pictures with us."

She continued, sharing her work online and getting great feedback. "I kept on doing it for the thrill of it," she adds.

Once her model is all set up, Logeais says it can take anywhere from four to seven hours to complete their look. 

"For example, the work on Ego has been particularly intense and long since I had to arrange the shades of colors with nothing but a sponge. Many expect that it is achieved using Photoshop, but it's actually the result of makeup, sponge work, and an enormous amount of patience!"

"The creative aspect of it is what appeals to me above all. I love the aesthetics, the photography, the atmosphere, the composition," Logeais adds about being a makeup artist.

Moreover, the Disney villains project allows her to see the worlds of makeup and animation come together. We can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
