Today I experimented with the makeup i will be using for my Final Piece. I began by researching different images of skeletons and grim reapers before looking at several skeleton makeup tutorials online. I was particularly inspired by the research I did on The Day of The Dead festival and different styles people create. Below is a video of my practicing the skeleton makeup. I decided to add a sharp black bob to my overall look as it reminded me of the strict and sharp hairstyles of the 1950s nurse. I decided to push my look further by adding red lipstick and false lashes in order for it to look more sultry as that is the type of character I wish to convey.
