Blood and Butter


I saw Dark Shadows a week ago, and I was immediately inspired by the makeup looks in the film. Pointed nails, dark nail lacquers, red lips, huge lashes and heavily shadowed eyes dominated the screen. The look that stood out the most to me was Johnny Depp's character Barnabus Collins. In the drag queen world they would say that he rocked "garage doors" ( one color of eye shadow on the entire eye lid), contoured blush, long nails and a red lip. And seeing that he was a vampire in the film, you can't forget the blood ;) I hope you enjoy this series of photos.

Tarte eye shadow, M.A.C lipstick, Fangs by Vampfangs.
"The Black Knight" polish by Butter London. I used a plain, black nail polish as the base coat.

  15. Did you take these??

    If so, this is insanely incredible - but if not, they're still really artistic and inspiring. A bit eerie, though!

    I just saw Dark Shadows, too, and I thought the main girl was so GORGEOUS. The contrasts between light and dark are really visually intriguing, and I loved the makeup and costume design. Who was your favorite character?

    1. Thank you! And yes, I took my own photos :) Shandrese and I wish we could take each others photos, but we live miles apart.

      The main girl was really gorgeous and I liked ALL the characters. I want to say Johnny because I've been a fan of his since I was a little girl, but Michelle's character rocked as well ;)
