Johnny Cash Inspired Makeup: Album Cover Makeup

Johnny Cash Inspired Makeup: Album Cover Makeup

Album cover makeup is something I look forward to creating each month. It is such a fun, creative way to express my love of music! I couldn’t address my love of music, without ever addressing the Man in Black himself, Johnny Cash. I LOVE Johnny Cash! 

Johnny Cash Album Cover Makeup

The Johnny Cash Legend of Johnny  Cash album was love at first listen, for me. I didn’t grow up listening to Johnny Cash and when I went to the movie Walk the Line in high school, I knew I needed Johnny Cash to be part of my life from then on!

I loved how feisty he was and that he wasn’t afraid to cause a little ruckus. He felt like a little bit of my spirit animal. The Legend of Johnny Cash album is basically a greatest hits album. It has songs recorded between 1955-2002 and it went Double Platinum! I bought it soon after seeing the Walk the Line movie and it lived in my car CD player for months.

Being the Man in Black and having the album cover in black and white, made this album cover makeup look a bit of a challenge! I wanted it to look dark, but just enough glam that it didn’t feel Gothic. Johnny Cash wasn’t Gothic!

Kenz, I am so glad you take the time to do what you love. It is fun to see what you have envisioned come to life. Your love of music has made me become more interested in the lyrics I listen to as well, paying attention to the artistic creativity of them. You are a wonderfully creative and talented creator. It was very nice starting my day by reading some of your blog posts. I love you.
