Halloween Series: Lily Munster Makeup

Happy Tuesday Beauty Junkies!

Today I bring you the third installment from my Halloween Costume series I’ve been doing on Youtube. I grew up watching The Munsters on Nick at Night. I was obsessed! If you haven’t seen it, it’s basically a black and white 60’s version of The Addams Family. Lily Munster was the matriarch of the family. The family had one “normal” cousin, who they always “felt bad for” ha ha!

Here’s a photo of the lovely actress who played Lily, Yvonne De Carlo. Check out those amazing eye brows!

Although this is technically a “monster” makeup I feel like it’s really a beauty look. Lily Munster was very stylish and wore hip, 60’s eye makeup. The Munsters aired in black and white, but I thought it would be more fun to do a color version of her look. I found a few photos of her in color, and this is what the makeup looked like behind the scenes:

Here’s my version: what do you think?

Peep the tutorial to follow the steps on how to achieve this look. I want to let you guys know that this is a great step-by-step video to get a “monster” or “pin up zombie” look as well, just add scarring and extra shading! Enjoy

I also want to let everyone know that Cinema Secrets has a great store in Burbank, Calif. (if you are close!) that carries everything you would ever need to create a Halloween look. If you don’t live in the area, please check out their website for all of their affordable products!
