My best friend George came around today and he wanted me to do a ‘Lady Gaga Esq’ look. Now, I have a pretty good camera, but, why is it that makeup always look so much better in person than when you put it on film? Due to this reason, I may have to revisit this look because I am not happy with the final product at all!

Brushes used From Left to Right:
Royal and Lagnickle C401
OCC Angle Brush #009
Benefit Angled Liner Brush
OCC Large Powder Brush #001
E.L.F Foundation Brush
Smashbox Crease Brush #10
OCC Foudation Brush #002
I started with the eyes, creating the line with the Loreal Studio Secrets Pencil in 590 Black. Once I was happy with the shape, I applied the same liner all over the lid and, then, patted in Urban Decay’s Oil Slick using Brush C401. Once I was happy with the eyeshape and colour, I applied concealer from Yaby, in shade Vanilla (cc013), using the E.L.F brush and Sephora Tinted Moisuriser in Medium 26 Peach, using OCC #002 Brush. (I will do another blog about why I use this Foundation choice)
I applied Benefit eyebrow wax from the Smokin’ Eye Palette and Smashbox Bionic Mascara, in Jet Black, to the upper and lower lashes. I then set the skin with Yaby Loose Setting Powder using OCC #001 Brush. Using the Smashbox crease brush, I applied PF091 from the Yaby Finishing Touch palette, to contour my cheeks and then using the same brush and palette, I applied PF089, as a highlighter. I took the OCC #001 Brush again and blended the highlighter and bronzer and then applied Yaby Blush in BL022. I finished the look by applying OCC Liptar in Divine using my finger.
And here you have the finished look which failed hugely 🙁
