“Rah rah rah ah ah roma roma ma gaga ooh la la”
I love Lady Gaga (who doesn’t?). When I’m at work blogging, she’s plugged into my ear belting out “whoa, whoa, I’ll get him high, show him what I got..”
On my way home she’s on the radio singing “Ale Ale Alejandro…”
While I’m on the treadmill at the gym, she’s on full blast “Don’t want no papa gangsta…”
At the club? The DJ knows what I’ll request. Her concert? I was the first to buy tickets. She even helped me get through a break up; I’m convinced she wrote ‘Brown Eyes’ for my boyfriend.
You guys get the point! So it’s no wonder that I find quite a bit of make up and fashion inspiration from my favorite girl. Platinum hair? Check! Hair bow? Check! Caution tape outfit? Maybe not… we don’t go that far.
Lady Gaga inspired make-up is a lot of fun. And I encourage you all to try some fun looks!
My favorite look is from her Poker Face video; uber dark eyes with frosty pink lips. To re-create it, start out with smooth, even skin. I love the bareMinerals get started kit; it has primer, two foundations, warmth, mineral veil, really nice brushes and an instructional DVD, so pretty much absolutely everything you’ll need to create the most beautiful canvas.
Take the smoky eye look to the next level. Think black lid, black lashes, black liner. This is obviously a great night time look. Use your fingertip or a firm eyeliner brush to paint the lid with the most amazing cream to powder shadow…Stila’s Smudge Pot (in Black). Paint the entire lid, up to the crease; pull the color to the outer corner of the eye for a bit of a cat-eye look. You can use the same smudge pot to line the lash line, or use a black liner for a bit more definition. Rim the entire eye, the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Carbon Black has a really intense black pigment that stays put. To make the eyes really pop accentuate the inner corners of the eyes as well as the brow bone with a shimmer shadow. Stila’s Kitten eyeshadow is universally flattering to all skin tones (it’s also great to use on cheekbones to make them pop). Finish the eyes with a strip of false lashes and two (or three) coats of black mascara. Too Faced Lash Injection in Pitch Black is a high impact mascara, great for length and volume.
The frosty pink lip is the cherry on top that pulls this look together. I use the bareMinerals 100 Percent Natural Lip Color in Bavarian Crème followed by NUXE Baume Prodigieux Nutri-Protecting Lip Gloss in Natural Crystal.
If you really want to look like GaGa use your cream shadow to paint a lightening rod on your face! Haha… well, maybe for Halloween!
Now get out there and get your channel your inner Gaga!
