How To Replicate Wednesday Addams' Iconic Makeup Look

Netflix’s popular show “Wednesday” had me glued to my screen —I couldn’t help but obsess over Wednesday Addams’ iconic look! Her goth glam pairs perfectly with her persona which is exactly what her makeup artist, Tara McDonald, was going for. As you may know, Wednesday is a young girl with a gloomy aesthetic, as she would describe as “spooky”. So, to match her personality her makeup was done with cool tones and soft glam. If you want to recreate Wednesday’s makeup look, here is a list of products that you should try out!
