The world of the weird is blossoming in the face of Netflix’s latest fantastical release: Wednesday. From the brilliant mind of Tim Burton himself, the loose adaptation of The Addams Family brings forth a narrative that surrounds the daughter of Morticia and Gomez Addams instead; a character that had been first made screen-famous via Christina Ricci’s rendition in the 1991 film. This time around, Jenna Ortega brings an equally morbid, yet fresh perspective to the role of Wednesday—clearly winning the hearts of its audiences so far.
And with all episodes having since been released for our viewing pleasure, the binge parties have undeniably begun. But beyond the rousing thrill of the mystery-fantasy plot, the episodic narrative has also been catching the attention of beauty enthusiasts—who have caught onto the buffet of hair, make-up and manicure moments in the show. From Enid’s eclectic rainbow-inspired hair and claws to Bianca’s wet, glossy pout, it’s evident that each beauty detail is decadently crafted to meld seamlessly with the character they’re portraying, all creatively birthed by make-up artist Tara McDonald. Wednesday’s dark, goth lip and smokey shadow is a perfect encapsulation of her character, but made even more nuanced when contrasted against Morticia’s more mature, regal pull as her mother.
It’s no surprise then that the show is becoming its very own smorgasbord of beauty looks to get inspired by—and to try emulating. Without further ado, we invite you to indulge yourself in the visual feast below, that is a compilation of Netflix’s Wednesday make-up, hair and manicure moments to cop.
