After pulling her red hair back to begin the I Am A October Girl I’m Not Perfect But I’m Always Myself Shirt But I will love this cosmetic metamorphosis, a fair shade of Fenty Pro-Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation creates a base. It’s really good for creating a super matte, almost powdery surface to build on, like you’re painting a porcelain doll, she explains. Also, once it sets, it kind of lasts all night. Mapping exaggerated features onto her face means using eyeshadows like watercolors. You can mix colors on the back of your hands, and once it dries, it has pretty good staying power, even if it’s cheap or low-quality eyeshadow, she points out. Shaved eyebrows provide a larger canvas to rearrange and exaggerate features as needed. Lining the eyes with black liner, Woods draws a thick lower fringe of lashes that hovers over her cheekbones. Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner and Jeffree Star liquid lipstick in Drug Lord which mimics the whites of the eyes provide budge-proof detailing. Wood’s natural mouth is completely covered with more foundation before an overblown set of lips are redrawn with creases and lines. The iris of each hand-painted eye is given a starry highlight before Woods adds oversized black novelty contact lenses, and upper and lower strips of heavy faux lashes. A waist-grazing wig of fuzzy platinum waves completes the transformation.
I think it’s gonna transition me really smoothly from day to night, Woods says of the I Am A October Girl I’m Not Perfect But I’m Always Myself Shirt But I will love this shape-eliminating ’80s-era Victorian fairytale bridesmaid dress that she altered into one of her favorite babydoll shapes and donned for the occasion. It’s definitely my go-to silhouette because I like my shoulders. Plus, the more volume, the better! I want to look like Princess Diana at her wedding every time I’m wearing a dress. On her way out the door, Woods pulls on a pair of watchband-embellished flats, a design that came to her in a dream. Offering up a hoarders guide to Glasgow, Wood’s destination is Randall’s Antiques and Vintage Centre, a decades-old market. Spinning through aisles, perching on chaise lounges and grasping at crystal baubles with a pair of rhinestone-dotted gloves, Woods looks right at home. How we dress, how we present, the person we see when we look in the mirror and why that person is different than the person everyone else sees—these are important things that really affect our mental health and how we function as a society, says Woods, adding: You’re only setting yourself up for a fall if you take yourself too seriously.
