“Death Becomes Her” Look

This specific makeup look was weirdly inspired by the “The Vampire Diaries.” I decided to re-watch the show after not being able to keep up with it on TV. It’s crazy how many references you miss until you watch the same episodes for the 3rd time in a row. Anyway, in one season they revisit the 1920s. First in one entire episode with the story of how Stefan met two original vampires. Another episode when they have the decade dance at Mystic Falls High.

I have a bit of a personal obsession with the 1920s, so I of coursed loved those episodes. I’ve been wanting to create a a 1920s glam look for quite a while, I just never got around to doing it. I figured now was the time. In planning the look, I thought it would be really fun to do a shadow skull look. I eventually decided to combine the two.

I went in with a plan in mind, and did something completely different than what I thought, but I still liked it. I got really zoned out when I picked up the brush. I started off with a glam portion of the look–creating a light black smokey eye with red lips, and then drawing the skull afterward. It took about 2 hours. The skull alone took an hour. It was my first time drawing a skull on my face.

Here’s the look I created with full details of what makeup products I used.

After everything was done, I set my face with the Urban Decay Chill Setting Spray. It takes away the powdery look of the makeup and while also helping it last all night. I obviously did not go out in this, but I always set my makeup to remove the powdery look.

My aunt gave me the title “Death Becomes Her” because that’s what it kinda looks like, and we both love that movie. That’s pretty much it. Let me know if you liked this look in comments, and if you want to see other types of looks. Make sure to subscribe to my blog if you want to read more posts.
