Is Johnny Depp’s gaunt appearance down to ditching ‘guyliner’? Expert reveals why the make-up free star, 54, looked ‘tired and extremely pale’ in snaps that sparked health fears
- Snaps of Johnny Depp posing with fans in Russia have sparked concern
- Commenters said actor looked ‘thin’ and ‘ill’, and some didn’t recognise him
- Celebrity make-up artist said it’s partly down to Depp ditching signature eyeliner
- Lack of make-up leaves eye looking tired and dull and his skin extremely pale
Johnny Depp has sparked concern among fans after ‘unrecognisable’ snaps showed him looking gaunt and ‘ill’, however his changed appearance could largely be down to ditching his ‘guyliner’.
The veteran actor, 54, seemed to be make-up free in snaps with fans in Russia that were posted to Instagram last week.
And celebrity make-up artist and owner of Pouts & Pinups Stacey Whittaker told Femail that ditching his signature smokey eye has had a huge impact on Depp’s face.
‘Usually Johnny Depp has a cool grunge style, however here he is not sporting his signature smudged guy-liner, which makes his eyes appear smaller,’ she explained.
‘Dark eyes can look harsh as we get older, but Depp’s normal sultry looking eye would never overpower his face and would actually give him more definition and colour.
‘Without his attention-grabbing guy-liner it makes his eyes seem tired and dull, and his skin extremely pale, whereas liner would brighten and bring out the whites of the eye.’

While fans are used to seeing Depp wear heavy make-up for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean, his love of eyeliner extends to his personal life.
He’s regularly seen on the red carpet or at photocalls for his films, wearing a smudge of black kohl on his bottom eyelids.
Concerns for the Pirates of the Caribbean star arose a few days ago when he posed for two photographs with female fans at the Four Seasons hotel in St. Petersburg before a performance with his band, The Hollywood Vampires.
The women shared them excitedly on social media afterwards, sparking comments over Depp’s appearance.
