1920s/1930s Make Up: Bette Davis Inspired

"Fasten your seat belts...."

I finally resorted to it. I have been wanting to do a tutorial on the Fifth Warner Brother for a very long time... I guess the only thing putting me off is the fear that I won't do her much justice. But since this week marked the 103rd birthday of Ms Bette Davis I felt compelled to do this.

This particular look is based on the 1934 film "Of Human Bondage" where Bette plays a waitress turned prostitute - so, granted, not the most flattering make up in the world... well, maybe a little more flattering than her Baby Jane look.
