One of my favourite looks I've ever done was a look I did for gay pride in Brighton, and that was simple eyes, natural lashes, natural eye colour, light brown brows and a black lip. I wanted to recreate that with almost a military edge and I think we recreated this before a night club I was hosting. Check out the original Instagram version here.
One thing a lot of people do not know, is I grew up absolutely oblivious to rock music. I had never in my life identified as grunge or goth, my family never played even David Bowie around the house so let that be an indication of the context of my upbringing. I just wasn't exposed to any of the references my emo peers at school had, so when I got to 14 or so I started to find myself and hang out with the other different kids at school, who were all heavily into goth music. One group I got the chance to hang out with was Wednesday 13, they used to do weird meet and greets at the music store in Churchill Square and they were staying above a hairdressers on the corner of the entrance to the Pavilion Gardens, opposite the phone box me and Michael James got mugged at. I don't know if this was a direct reference to Manson doing it, but I distinctly remember them having a military hat on and I also know Manson to have done the same, so a lot of my friends had all these goddamn hats around and so that's where I got this look from. Please, please, please forgive my ignorance I have know awareness of this end of the scale haha.
I wore this with a cotton jersey dress by Westwood, I have tens of these dresses as they make me feel comfortable even if I'm feeling like an overweight moose. The hair is actually a 24 inch half wig in a full lace 14 inch. So what I do is I curl the basic pink, attach the half wig and curl the same pattern in, set it with clips and bam. She's a cyber Ariel!
