Before Cruella was ever, effectively, Cruella, she was an aspiring designer named Estella, as seen within the origin story that contains the plot of this film. When Stone is simply Estella, she’s seen with essentially the most stripped-back make-up. Again, “I just needed [viewers] to believe that this is a girl that’s living in normal London in the ’70s,” Stacey explains. “We need to fall in love with Estella. We need to connect to her so that when she starts becoming Cruella, it’s exciting, and we’re with her.”
To do exactly that for Estella’s scenes, Stacey gave Stone a recent glow with sheer basis and simple-yet-punky make-up. To put it in different phrases, Estella appears like an unmasked model of Cruella.
When Estella first transforms into her devious alter ego, her base make-up is starkly white to symbolize the truth that she’s masking who she actually is. (Cruella additionally wears a literal masks of feathers and stones that Stacey handcrafted herself.) Stacey went three shades lighter than Stone’s pure complexion with the Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation.
Then, the hair and make-up designer dusted white powder on prime to solidify the mask-like base. Stacey assured me Stone’s love of skincare prevented this intensely porcelain make-up from wanting too cakey and flat. A little bit of Kevyn Aucoin’s radiant The Sensual Skin Enhancer helped, too.
Cruella’s basis progressively turns into much less pale as her confidence builds and he or she begins to simply accept herself as Cruella, Stacey reveals. “When we get to the end of the film, her foundation color goes back towards Estella’s,” Stacey continues. “She’s becoming herself again.”
Cruella is offered now in theaters or on Disney+ with Premier Access.
