Harry Potter Week: Bellatrix LeStrange Inspired Look

I adore Bellatrix. She’s mental and mean but I love her character, especially with Helena Bonham Carter playing her. For me Bellatrix is a true witch, if you think of a stereotypical witch then Bellatrix is what you get: Crazy hair, eccentric outfits, dark smudgy makeup, a cackle! and I could definitely imagine her brewing up a potion in a cauldron…

I just went for a generally vampy witchy vibe, with lots of black shadow blended out with some purpley/auberginey colours from the Sleek Bad Girl palette. On the lips I have Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire ‘n’ Ice with some black shadow pressed on top. I think that if Bella was going out on the town she’d rock make up like this, but in general she looks more dishevelled. I think if I slept with this make up on I’d wake up with a more Bellatrixy look :) – Perhaps one to try for the weekend?

Hope you like it :)


  1. Love this look! Looking forward to seeing more. :)

  2. I love this! I am the same way - I love the way Helena Bonham-Carter portrays Bellatrix in the movies too - her look is part of it! You did a great job replicating it!

  3. Thanks for the lovely comments guys, it was really fun trying to achieve a Bellatrixy look! :)

  4. Like this :) Bellatrix is one of my fave characters she's so mad, Helena BC is the best person to play her!

  5. @Carlito - She's one of my fave's too I love how actual mad she is! HBC was definitely a good match :)
