Here is a very simple look I created once again inspired by mr Pete Burns! You can find the original image from Instagram here.
One of my favourite videos by Dead or Alive is Your Sweetness is Your Weakness for a number of reasons, I like that there is a male and female love interests in the video. I love the nod to the biblical aspects and I particularly love the Afternoon of a Faun by Nikinsky look in the cow print. I wanted to recreate the chainmail look and create a modern spin, so I matched a gold similar top with devil horns and tried to create a shorter bob look that worked with my features.
Most of my ideas come from my idols but I try to nod towards that direction without being literal. I love the idea of having a classically beautiful face, I love the idea of matching that with a male body and Pete completely encapsulated this. When you go through the timeline of Pete's transformation, you can see his first steps into recreating his look by having his nose initially worked on before the Spin Me video leading to the infamous eyepatch, to the teeth, to the touch ups around the jawline and finally the work on the lips. This is my favourite era from Pete and I pull a great amount of inspiration from this time.
In terms of the makeup, I try and always use the blueprint of my classical contour which is designed to create a symmetrical and flawless base. The eye makeup is very lifting in the corners, I have a large amount of space to work with so I pull from the classical beauties, use colours that compliment my natural eye colour and boost my lashes as much as possible. With the hair, this wig is a full lace and the actual texture of the hair has been problematic since I bought it. It was initially 22 inches and for some reason there is this waxy texture to some of the indian hair that I've used in contrast to more silky brazilian styles, so I couldn't use it in any of the ideas I'd created. I tried to cut it whilst on my own head, and curled it into more of a modern lob which works really well for my face. It holds shorter styles much better and is one of my favourite looks!
