It all started with this beautiful black velvet maxi dress that I received a few weeks ago from Unique Vintage, which inspired me to transform into Morticia Addams. I knew I had to create this look — this dress was too perfect for the part!
Morticia’s makeup look is anything but subtle — dark smokey eyes and bold red lips, combined with her all-black attire to give a dramatic, over-the-top finish. I had the dress and the long black hair, so it was quite easy to make the transition. I opted for matte colors on the eyes — black, gray, and white eyeshadows were used to create the smokey cut-crease, while a burgundy lipstick was applied all over my lips with a lighter red shade in the center to create a soft ombre effect. My hair was straightened and parted down the center; once the makeup and hair was taken care of, I put on the bewitching long sleeve black dress with black pointy heels and a black lace choker, and the look was complete! I felt so intense and loved how everything came together! Also, this makeup can be used for a vampire look as well — just take a liquid lipstick to create a few drops of faux blood on the corner of the lips and voilà!
