Elphaba is a phenomenal and lovable character from the novel then Broadway musical: Wicked. Contrary to her regularly recognized persona as the evil ‘Wicked Witch of the West’ this untold tale goes behind The Wizard of Oz to reveal a heartbreaking story about the witches of Oz.

As you can see, the makeup seen here is not the exact version you will see on Broadway. I decided to create a more playful version by adding more glimmer and color. I chose red lips over green because I love the promotional poster of Wicked where Elphaba is seen with red lips and a small smile, her hat covering her eyes.
