ICYMI: Lady Gaga’s video for G.U.Y dropped this week and it is FAAAAABulous. At 11 minutes long (4 minutes just for credits) it is a classic Haus of Gaga masterpiece, including 4 songs off the album: Artpop, Venus, G.U.Y and Manicure (played over the credits). Gaga’s looks in the video are amazing. It’s possibly the hottest she’s ever looked. So of course I tried to copy them in an homage to the Lady.
This would have worked better in the days when I had bleach blonde hair..but anyway the makeup was actually fairly simple. It is just a simple dewy skin, some graphic eye-liner, just clear lipgloss and eyebrows edited out in post production. I couldn’t get them to disappear in real life.
This look was a lot of fun to recreate. The eyebrows are still minimal but I didn’t have to edit them out. I just used my brow setting wax (benefit) and didn’t fill them in. The lips are a kind of light corally-orange so I used RiRi <3s Mac lipstick in Who’s That Chick and then went over them in a pinky coral lipgloss.
Here’s a closer look of the eyes:
For this I used mainly the NARS And God Created Woman palette. It’s is hard to tell exactly how to copy this look seeing as there are only two close ups of this makeup in the video, each about 1 second long but I did my best and I am quite happy with the result.
So if you haven’t seen it go and watch the video now!
I am totally head over heels with the video for Dark Horse by Katy Perry. The wigs, the dancers, the song and especially that makeup!
(that grill though!)
So after two days of gel liner migraines, I managed to pay homage to this look. I would say recreate but that level of genius cannot be replicated.
The shadows are very simple. It is just gold and purple and you don’t need to worry about blending because the liner will cover it up. The liner on the other hand it a different story…I attempted this look yesterday and absolutely failed, but this time I just took my time and tried not to smash anything in rage and it went ok. I use Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack with a Mac small liner brush.
I love the hieroglyphics eyeliner so much that I am tempted to steal if for my everyday makeup look and just rock the ultimate in vintage eyeliner. Eff the 1940s flick, it’s all about the 3000AD hieroglyph.
Katy looks so bomb in this video and I just can’t get over that grill. I had to improvise with mine.
All in all, majuh snaps to Katy Perry’s makeup artist for the video, Jake Bailey. Girls all around the world are gonna be punching their mirrors in gel eyeliner rage because of you, b.
I would love to see how other people got on with this! Hit me up in the comments if you’ve attempted it too.
