For my recent shoot with Gloomth Girl Vanessa Walsh we decided to do a Gloomth take on 1920s makeup and styling, sort of a film noir meets lolita. It’s definitely not historically accurate or even lolita accurate but we had a lot of fun with this shoot!
When I planned the makeup out I did a lot of looking at 1920s film stills and magazine ads for makeup inspiration. I went big with black eyeshadow and hues of purple, finished with tons of highlight and big black eyelashes. The lipstick is a matte black with a YSL opaque black gloss on top for super shine.
The gorgeous peacock feather headband was created by the talented Taissa Lada! It really made this look special. We paired it with a rhinestone necklace, black jet beads, and more black hair flowers. Vanessa’s hair was braided in two long braids then pinned up for this dolly version of a faux bob. Super easy and it looked really neat in the photos.
