Brody Dalle Inspired Makeup


This is going to be one of those looks that you either love or hate – application isn't precise and it's a bit grunge-y to look at, it certainly isn't 'pretty'.

I don't know what it is but I just think the makeup Brody wore for the Drain The Blood video was absolutely beautiful. I'll admit she makes me want to dye my hair back dark again and cut it shorter- I just love the contrast of red lips, porcelain skin and dark hair. I used the makeup she wore in that video as inspiration as well as some other looks she wore whilst in The Distillers.

I wore this makeup when I went out on Sunday night for a couple of drinks and to see a friends band play, and of course re-created it today because silly me didn't snap any photos of it before I dashed out! I didn't blend as much brown shadow under my eye on Sunday however – I drew most of the attention to the upper lid and just had minimal shadow on the lower eye.

  5. Beautiful!!! I really love this look, I can see where you got your inspiration from but I think your interpretation is much better than the original. Definitely prettier and much more wearable. I'm not just saying this because I dislike Brody for being married to Josh Homme either lol. xx

  29. Thank you for your nice comments everyone! x

    @Lydia - ooh I'd love to see it if you do try it! x

    @Beautyfiend - haha I don't blame you, Josh is certainly a catch ;)

    @Roshas - nope I don't make youtube videos at the moment, I'm not sure if I would I end up blabbering like an idiot in front of a camera! My camera's rubbish for recording on so if I ever do start I'll need to invest in a good one! And I'm so glad you like it! x

    @SilhouetteScreams - haha when I saw her live I got ridiculously starstruck, I would gladly be her for a day! It's not like I spent half an hour miming along to The Distillers in this makeup or anything... ;) x

  31. This make up is superb. It always is though so I'm not shocked!
    I did my makeup similar to this when I went to a dress up party as a Gypsy. I figured dirty, rough makeup would suit. But the same thought ran through my head, that most girls wouldn't appreciate it because it wasn't pretty makeup.

    I remember seeing the video for Drain the Blood when I was about 11 maybe? I wanted to be her, I freaking loved Brody Dalle from the moment I saw her. I always hated having short hair, but seeing her makes me wanna chop off all my hair and dye it black X3
    I also always wanted the trousers from the video lol
    Anyway, nice job :) I use Barry M red pencil eyeliner as lipstick, mix it with black liner to make it darker :P I'm cheap.
