'Lady Gaga Vanity Fair' Look
As you can tell from the title I was inspired by a look Lady Gaga was wearing on a Vanity Fair magazine cover. It's a very soft look which makes her look so polished and refined (which I prefer on her). I must say that I now realize that it's not that I don't like neutral looks but rather that I don't like neutral brown looks. This is a great neutral look but it uses pink and purple tones and I really like it. I amped up the lips a bit more than what Gaga is wearing just because...
I started off with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin Low Paintpot (matte beige) all over my lid and on my brow bone as my primary base and MAC Girl Friendly Paintpot (matte light pink) just on my brow bone as a secondary base.
For the inner tear duct area I applied MAC Crystal Avalanche Eyeshadow (white with silver reflects).
On the lid I applied MAC Vapour Eyeshadow (soft pale peachy-pink duochrome).
Then on the brow bone I applied MAC Yogurt Eyeshadow (matte soft pink).
In the outer brow bone area I also added MAC Pen and Pink Eyeshadow (matte light pink).
For the outer lid I applied MAC Bark Eyeshadow (matte purple brown).
For highlight I used Bare Escentuals Clear Radiance All Over Face Color (shimmery light pink).
I used MAC Sketch Eyeshadow (velvet burgundy) for my lower lashline.
My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud.
I lined my upper lashline with Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner in Black.
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black.
I used MAC Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara for my lashes with MAC #7 false eyelashes for effect.
For my lips I used MAC I Like It Like That Lipstick topped with MAC Melt In Your Mouth Cremesheen Glass.
I prepped my skin with MAC Oil Control Lotion. I used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Tahoe mixed with MUFE All Mat Primer. I used MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #12 under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage. I set my foundation with MAC Blot Powder in Dark.
I used MAC Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre (light purple pink) for my cheeks and MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for highlight and contour.
And what??!! I'm going to the lab looking fab! LOL!
