New “Perfume” Photoshoot!

1920s gothic outfit and makeup

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.

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.
