Taylor Momsen’s new trend: The zombie look
If you’re up to date with the latest in beauty, you’ve probably been aware of, or wearing, the smoky eyes makeup trend. The industry and all who follow it owe that to Taylor Momsen, who so consistently wore it during the second and third seasons of Gossip Girl.
TMom must have been very pleased with herself, thinking that she’s got the street cred to influence women around the world into wearing raccoon makeup. However, we think she got a little too pleased with her clout to the point of getting so cocky she’s starting a new outrageous makeup technique.
Probably tired of looking like a personified wild creature from a Sleeping Beauty cartoon, Taylor’s now spearheading the tortured zombie look, just because that’s so much more broodingly, depressingly goth. And, it’s just in time for Halloween. Isn’t the timing perfect?
And hey, if you think about it, maybe she was just taking her song Zombie, where in the lyrics she sings “I am, I am, I am a zombie”, just a little too seriously?
Anyway, if you’re going to any Halloween parties this weekend and are mulling over what kind of look you’re going to sport, this picture might be helpful to you. Get some black lipstick, black eyeshadow, and some red eye shadow to be applied in place of the usual eyeliner, and you’re ready to go as a Brooklyn-born social climber with an insatiable appetite for human brains.
Only because it’s Halloween and you can dress up as anyone or anything you want, society is giving you a day pass and you’re free to look like this. But wear this kind of makeup any other day and we’ll be the first ones to drag you into the ladies room and wipe that ridiculous look off your face. It’s just not appealing, especially to kids, who might see it and, in turn, suffer unnecessary psychological trauma.
