This week I am highlighting what I believe to be two fairly obvious celebrity beauty and blunders. Let's switch it up with the blunder going first...
BLUNDER : LADY GAGA
This is Mother Monster (yes that's what her fans call her) wearing different variations of splatter paint makeup around Los Angeles recently. I don't know what the occasion was, or if there even was one, but I'm sure there's got to be an explanation...right? The lipstick is actually very pretty and summery if left by itself, but the rest of the rainbow makeup is a bit distracting. I get artistic expression and trying to make a statement in a sea of other musicians, but in my opinion, this looks silly and trying a bit too hard to be different.
But who am I to judge, her bank account is a lot bigger than mine so she's obviously doing something right. On second thought, maybe I need to rethink letting my 3 year old do my makeup in the morning like she always asks to! I will say, I am excited to see what Gaga comes up with makeup, hair, style wise for her upcoming appearance at the MTV VMA Awards! I'm sure whatever it is, it won't be boring and we won't be able to look away.
BEAUTY : OLIVIA WILDE
So Olivia could probably look stunning rolling out of bed at 6am without a stitch of makeup on so she's already one step ahead of the game in the beauty category. I do love a good smokey eye, and this one Miss Wilde sported recently to the Drinking Buddies premiere, is top notch. With the very low key cheeks + lips, the relaxed wavy hair, and black tee, she is balanced out perfectly. The eyes are the focus and you can't stop staring at them.
To achieve these deep shimmery charcoal/silver eyes, I would use Kat Von D's True Romance Palette in "Sinner," $36, and line the entire eye (inner waterline included) with Urban Decay's 24/7 liner in "Zero," $19. I own both of these products and tried to recreate a similar look recently and it turned out beautifully!
What do you think about Monday's beauty/blunder picks? Am I being too conservative about Miss Gaga or am I right on track with being wild about Miss Wilde's smokey eyes?
