As film technology evolves, make-up must evolve along with it. This was true for Oz: The Great and Powerful make-up department head Vivian Baker, who had the job of transforming actress Michelle Williams into an ethereal Glinda under the harsh demands of RED Camera technology. Luckily for Baker, Williams was a delight to work with: “I had the greatest job working with Michelle. She was ever the professional and loving and kind, not unlike the character she played of Glinda the Good,” Baker said. Read on to find out what it takes to make a good witch.

Editor's note: This breakdown originally appeared in Issue 101 of Make-Up Artist magazine. Click here for a breakdown on Mila Kunis as Theodora.
Skincare
Epicuren Herbal Cleanser, Koh Gen Do Oriental Plants Deep Moisture Mask, Koh Gen Do Oriental Plants Emollient Cream, Koh Gen Do Oriental Plants Skin Lotion, Clé de Peau Beauté Absolute Eye Makeup Remover and La Mer The Eye Balm. “Skincare was a key part of the make-up. The RED Camera gives so much more information that great skin is a must. Also, the extra shine that can be seen using this camera required heavy matte powder. We needed the rich moisture to maintain Michelle’s skin. At lunch, I would add moisture to her skin with the [Koh Gen Do] Skin Lotion. We cleaned her [face] nightly using the Clarisonic PLUS Sonic Skin Cleansing System.”
Foundation
Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Invisible Skin-Fusion Foundation in Beige Clair, and Clé de Peau Beauté Cream Foundation in I10 on areas that needed a little extra coverage.
Concealer
Guerlain Precious Light Rejuvenating Illuminator in 02
Powder
Sensai Loose Powder, lightly brushed; Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder; and the pressed powder for on set was Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Pressed Powder.
Blush
Benefit Dandelion, and Paul and Joe #31 on the apples. (This shade is no longer available; Baker suggests Dolce & Gabbana The Blush Luminous Cheek Colour in Peach as a comparable color.)
Eye Shadow
Clé de Peau Beauté Cream Eye Color in Champagne on her lid (this shade is no longer available), followed by Becca Créme Eye Colour in Antique Gold in her crease, then intensified with Stila Eye Shadow in Puppy. Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Ivory was used under the brows.
Eye Liner
Sensai Liquid Eyeliner in LE01, the best pen liner on the market, as a very thin line at the base of her lashes, both top and bottom. I would make sure the liner was smashed between her lashes as well.”
Brows
Becca Brow Powder in Light and Fair
Mascara
“We did a good curl of the lashes, then a good coat of Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils in Deep Night, top and bottom.”
False Lashes
“I applied individual lashes: a layer of Ardell Duralash Flare lashes in Short Black, then a layer of Ardell Duralash Flare lashes in Medium Black. The bottom lashes were thick extension individuals that are six millimeters long; there were about five lower lashes on each eye.”
Lips
Bobbi Brown Lip Liner in Beige and Rodin Olio Lusso Lip Balm
Highlights / Countour
“|Chanel Illusion D'ombre| in Fantasme was the white highlight that went under her brow bone, on the inner corner of the eyes and on the cheekbones.”
Additional Information
Body make-up: M.A.C. Micronized Airbrush Formula in NC20 followed by Premiere Products Inc. Skin Illustrator Alchemy Palette in Platinum
