The Butcher Babies have come a long way since I first discovered them – originally they channeled their inner Wendy O Williams into the metal powerhouse that they are now. It’s been really fun to watch them grow, although I loved the more “gimmickey” aspect of the early days. Heidi is the usually blonde, but sometimes red and sometimes blue singer and Carla has the dark hair with colorful ends. They’re both gorgeous, but they are equally as talented. They tend to wear a lot of skin tight, shredded and ripped clothing. Occasionally, they’ll throw in a skirt or dress in there, though. I imagine it as what a lot of female rock fans would wear to a show except magnified by about 100.

Dark and dramatic makeup is an integral part of the Butcher Babies’ aesthetic. Focus on smoky eyes with black eyeliner, bold mascara, and intense eyeshadow. Pair this with deep, bold lipstick shades, like black, deep red, or dark purple, for the perfect metal-inspired look.
