The Black Dahlia


Watch my tutorial here: - the Black Dahlia is the 6th makeup tutorial for my 2012 Halloween series.

NOTE: This special effects recreation makeup is in no way intended to offend or disrespect the memory of Elizabeth Short. Special Effects Makeup Artists recreate a lot of traumatic and disturbing looks, how is this any different then the effects that are simulated in film.

Who is Elizabeth Short? I think you did an awesome job. It looked kinda zombi-ish to me. Now I have to go and google E.S.

Its difficult to say when it was horrible what happened to her but in some artist 'makeup artist' kind of way the look is a beautiful and disturbing makeup to create. That same sort of fabulous scary. hahahhah
