How to get Wednesday Addams’ dark, gothic lip, as well as other stunning beauty looks from the Netflix remake?


The world of the weird is thriving in the wake of Netflix’s latest fantastical release, Wednesday. The loose adaptation of The Addams Family, from Tim Burton’s brilliant mind, brings forth a narrative that revolves around the daughter of Morticia and Gomez Addams instead; a character who was first made screen-famous via Christina Ricci’s rendition in the 1991 film. Jenna Ortega plays Wednesday this time around with an equally morbid, yet fresh perspective, clearly winning the hearts of its audiences so far. Let’s talk about Netflix’s Wednesday make-up.

And now that all episodes have been released for our viewing pleasure, the bingeing has unquestionably begun. Beyond the rousing thrill of the mystery-fantasy plot, the episodic narrative has also piqued the interest of beauty enthusiasts, who have spotted the show’s buffet of hair, make-up, and manicure moments. Each beauty detail, from Enid’s eclectic rainbow-inspired hair and claws to Bianca’s wet, glossy pout. It is decadently crafted to meld seamlessly with the character they’re portraying, all creatively birthed by make-up artist Tara McDonald. Wednesday Addams’ dark, gothic lip and smokey shadow perfectly encapsulate her character. But they become even more nuanced when contrasted with Morticia’s more mature, regal pull as her mother.

It’s no surprise, then, that the show has evolved into its own smorgasbord of beauty looks to be inspired by—and to try to imitate. Without further ado, please enjoy the visual feast below, which is a compilation of Netflix’s Wednesday make-up, hair, and manicure moments to cop.
