Inspired by Tim Burton Characters






I love Tim Burton's films. His makeup is romantic/gothic and very pale. Eyes are super sunk-in and cheeks are hollow. Here's my attempt at this look. The key steps are very pale skin- try a foundation 1-2 shades lighter than normal. Eyes should be layered first with purple eyeshadow then blended with black. Brown in the hollow of eyes to create the sunk-in look. Contour cheeks with burgundy and light pink blush. Enjoy!

Nancy. Great job here. I am not a huge fan of the Tim Burton look because I think I usually prefer something more warm, but you pulled it off and it still looks appealing to me.

I have to say my favorite part though is that your eyebrows and lashes look dramatic but still totally natural here. I think you should do this look again and soon!

@ robin, I know u think burton's stuff is scary so I'm glad u like this look. I think this look would be great on you cuz it would be so different from what u normally do.
@ minna- i'd love to do makeup for u but I would really be getting tips from u. Ur makeup is already impeccable.
