I am delighted to tell you that this time for Goth Life I’m talking to gorgeous ghoul Jolien, the girl behind Crucifucked on Instagram. We talk about makeup, her inspiration, and what she does to get out of a rut.
What is an average day like for you?
An average day for me is testing out some new make up looks or testing new make up and spending time with my kitty cat.
What is it about make up that you like?
I love how you can transform yourself in something totally different everyday. You can go as crazy as you want, cuz …. that’s what’s make up’s for!
Where do you get your style/makeup inspiration from?
I get a lot of make up inspiration from Marilyn Manson, flowers (I love the colour combinations some flowers have) and basically everybody and everything I see on social media and in real life.
What made you start posting your make up looks online? Did you ever expect that your Instagram following would get this big?
I never ever thought I would have so many followers! At first, when people from my class were talking about Instagram I was like… yeah whatever… but when I searched images on Google and always got links to Instagram I thought, maybe I need to get an Instagram. So I did and at first I got 10 – 20 likes, nothing special. Then after the 3rd post I thought maybe I should post more about my hair and make up, tattoos, etc, since those are my 3 favourite things. After a month on Instagram I had 1000 followers. When I was at 4000 followers, big accounts started to notice me and when I was at 10k people started to ask me to be a promoter for them. Now it’s been exactly 2 years on Instagram (December 7) and I have 25k followers, but I never EVER thought that there would be people that are interested in seeing my face.
Do you ever get down about body image? How do you combat that?
Yes, alot. My weight will always be a struggle.At one point I thought I was too skinny, and now I feel too fat. I know this will be a struggle for the rest of my life, but doing things that make you feel pretty really helps , in my case, that’s make up!
What are your favourite products?
What’s your go-to make up look?
Pale as the moon with a beautiful red lipstick.
