As you may have read from an earlier post, I've been reading (and have now finished) the Twilight book series. You can check out what I thought of the whole series by clicking here. I know there's been a lot of Twilight inspired looks posted on Youtube, so this is not a Twilight look. I started with the idea of vampires and then just drew inspiration from that - a dark, vampy, gothic type of look, but still keeping it modern and not too over the top. I guess this is how I envision myself to look if I were a vampire! I used gothic-makeup elements of black eyes and deep blood red lips. I also tried to do my hair in a vampy style, whatever that means! On the black and white photo I have added some effects in Photoshop to create a slightly spooky mood. I hope you enjoy this look and try it out yourself!
(As an aside, I wish I had the opportunity to film all my videos during daytime, the video and the pictures come out so much better, and capture the makeup more accurately. *sigh*)
