The Angry Princess from 13 Ghosts

View this post on Instagram

T H E _ A N G R Y _ P R I N C E S S ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ❌ IT’S JUST MAKEUP ❌ Here’s my take on ‘The Angry Princess’ from ‘13 Ghosts.’ The story goes that Dana Newman was so beautiful, her beauty was compared to that of a goddess. Unfortunately, she was unable to realize how beautiful she was and ultimately her self-loathing and low self-esteem (fueled by a series of abusive boyfriends) led to getting multiple cosmetic procedures. One night, while alone in the clinic where she worked, she tried to perform surgery on herself to correct an imaginary imperfection on her face. Her procedure took a horrific turn and left her blinded in one eye. She then gave up on beauty and committed suicide in her bathtub by slashing herself with a butcher's knife until she bled to death. Once her body was discovered, she was described by her loved ones as being "beautiful in death as she was in life". // eyes are edited #HallowKween ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• @wetnwildbeauty • ‘Brights’ + ‘Neutrals’ paint palettes @sugarpill • ‘Love+’ ‘Flamepoint’ + ‘Bulletproof’ eyeshadows @meltcosmetics • ‘Bonnie’ + ‘Mochi’ eyeshadows (Gemini Palette) @milanicosmetics • ‘Red After Dark’ lipstick + ‘ ‘ liquid lipstick @alconeco • 3rd Degree silicone compound @dermaflage • ‘Blood Red’ Fast Fx @spirithalloween • Blood
