I thought I saw your face today . . .

Look at that girl
With a piper's smile
As she blows kisses in the wind
Dark brown curls
And kitschy style
nothing but fall aparts to lend

Raccoon eyes and Cupid's bow lips
Rosebud cheeks and two cent tips

She's really something else . . .

I spent this entire day mostly listening to She and Him. I just adore the musical stylings of M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel. So while I was listening to them for lets just say my third or fourth hour, I decided to look at some of my favorite Zooey photos. While sifting through a heap a photos I ran across one particular photo. It shows Zooey with darling makeup very reminiscent of the 1920's flapper style. She had gorgeous messy curls. Smeared eyeliner, and adorable cupid bow lips. Just so incredibly wonderful.
It's part flapper and part late 60's groupie.

Needless to say I was very Inspired. Here is my take on her hair and makeup. I know it's not 100% accurate or perfect. But after all this is an inspired look. Not a replica. Because, C'mon let's face it, no one can replicate Zooey.

There's thieves among us, painting the walls.
With all kind of lies and lies, I never told it all.
What's in my pocket, you never knew.
You didn't know me well, so well as I knew you.

  1. I love that Zoe picture! You replicated it well... and your soft curls are very charming!

    I'm always looking to duplicate that shade of lipstick thats that perfect bright, almost orange-y in my artwork when I paint girls of the past...
