This is a not so scary Halloween Look, inspired by Jane the character of Dakota Fanning in the upcoming movie New Moon. Since I dont have any red contact lenses, I decided to put a lot of red on the lids to give the illusion of red eyes. And since it is a glamorised Vampire look, I decided to apply blood red lipstick, kept the blush to a minimum and paled my skin.
If there is one vampire movie that I have seen over 10 times, it would only be Queen of the Damned. I think Stuart Townsend was excellent and the late Aliyah was simply breathtaking as Akasha. I love the Soundtrack, most especially. I listened to Deftones, Disturbed for over 2 months whilst i was making my mood board and designs. It does not lull you to sleep but it does inspire you. hehehehe.
Inspired by Lestat's rise to fame as a Rock and Roll god, I decided to up the ante by combining the make up with a mini fashion editorial using goth lace skirts, tailored and sharp jackets, leather, sparkle and some military punches, corset type belts.
