Make up

I need to think about what makeup I will wear.. if any?

I definitely want to wear make up, the reasons behind that is.. I want to glam up an otherwise horror/macabre image. The meat on skin will be dark, but I want it pretty too rather than just plain gross.

I really like the idea of having a red theme to the make up as the flesh (if any will be red) red and bone tones work well. 

I could have red lips or red eyes.. both even?

I like this as there is no other make up but the eyes. I quite like the look of make up not over done.

I also think a very plain look would work too as having the meat on a simple canvas is effective.. the whole ‘less is more’ thing.. 

I do like the way the eyes are outlined in this.

    I think the very red outlines of the eyes and mouth in the first set of images are too horrific looking and would possibly confuse your message 🙂 As for your carcass… ICK!!!!

  2. Excellent CC, I very much agree actually! I think with the carcass its too much Im going to go very natural and plain I think. 🙂
