Happy Monday y’all!
Today we are doing things a little different. Usually Monday is our Foodie Monday, but since IMATS NYC just ended and the kick off the NYC Bridal Market is upon us, we are going to do things different. Rather than have a Beauty Tuesday, we are doing it today. And we are SO excited because this is our very first collaboration. We couldn’t have asked a better person to join us in this venture because Hayley Jay put her heart into this. She’s our kind of people.
Yes we all love glam and beauty makeup, but there were classic actresses that were icons in their right, who were not consider the ideal beauty. These were the ladies of horror. Such as Elvira, Morticia Addams, Lily Munster, and the list goes on. I remember the first time I saw Lily Munster in black and white as a little girl and all I could imagine how amazing her makeup must have looked in real life and in color. So women like these inspire me. They were so beautiful to me because if you could be a horror actress and look so flawless that was my definition of incredible beauty.
We took on Elvira, take a look.
We actually didn’t use much to recreate this look.
- Foundation: NYX Stay Matte but Not Flat Foundation in two shades lighter to get that Elvira pale skin tone.
