Marie Antoinette Meets 20’s Noir?
—-
Yes this look is slightly scary, and plenty odd.
But I love it!
I wouldn’t peg myself as a 20’s girl. I’m quite typical in my love for 40s and 50s classic looks. But somehow in the last couple of years, I’ve found myself getting more and more attracted by the more enigmatic and dramatic artifice of the 20s, as opposed to the structured escapism of the 40s and 50s.
I love how this image seems to pull elements from different ages together (hair powdered grey, dark red cheeks, and a beauty mark are SOOOO Marie Antoinette), but I especially like the stained kewpie doll mouth and deep red cheeks. 
You can probably recreate the look with a bright silver paint (try something from the Metal X collection or foil a silver pigment), black liner, lots of mascara and false lashes, red blush (Nars Exhibit A comes to mind), and a deep black-cherry lipstick like MAC Diva, topped with gloss.
Don’t forget a well-placed beauty-mark and finger-waved hair to complete the look!
