Look of the Month :: Fall 2015 :: November

"How can you have lived for so long, and still not get it? This self obsession
is a waste, of living. It could be spent on surviving things, appreciating nature,
nurturing, kindness, friendship, and DANCING! You've been pretty lucky in
love though, if I may say so." - Eve (Tilda Swinton), Only Lovers Left Alive

Oh Eve, you're beautiful and wise. What an inspiration. You see the world for what it is: Nothing more, nothing less. I too have experienced this wonder with eyes wide open. To disconnect from distractions, and simply be, is one of the greatest joys of life.

Eve, our deliciously ethereal leading lady is from one of my favorite films of all time, Only Lovers Left Alive, and is the focus of this month's digital face chart. It's perfect for the end of fall, because her ivory look lends itself quite well to this time of year. So, if you're into this light, yet hip, look I also recommend teasing your hair big (yak and goat hair was used in her wig, like Adam's, to give it a more wild eternal quality), and pair that with dark blue contacts for the finishing touch (if you don't already have blue eyes). Both her and Adam are very similar visually, and like yin and yang, they complement each other oh so perfectly.

One other thing to note about this character's makeup is that it does tend to change throughout the story. If Eve is well fed, she looks a little bit more put together. This is the look that I have focused on for my chart, as opposed to when she is hungry, pale, and near death. It seems probable that the makeup artist used a bit more powder on the face and lips when this happens, almost to the point of looking dusty and ancient. Pop in some sickly yellow-green contacts to complete the look, and this is definitely another fun alternative.

Again, I'm focused on her at her best. The way she is when she's with Adam, her Truelove. They're enchanting when they're together, and she is the light to his darkness. Like Eve, go forward throughout life with that same curiosity. Be fully aware, and experience every moment truly.
