Makeup Look: Modern Day Marie Antoinette

Thursday, July 25, 2019

Lately, instead of asking myself "how can I make myself look better?" when doing my makeup, I've been trying to ask myself "How can I have fun with this?". It's a much appreciated change, partially inspired by the amazing dialog we had in one of my last post which touched upon beauty standards.

The film Marie Antoinette (2006) by Sofia Coppola is one of my favorite points of reference for style and beauty - and it definitely came through in this look! Hair piled high with the help of pillow stuffing (a little shoddily done I gotta admit... I'm practicing on getting better!) and with temporary floral tattoos decorating my cheeks - I'm really happy with how it ended up!
Would you ever try an editorial look like this? More often then not, I've worn looks like this to the grocery store and people stare but don't say a word, haha!
