When it comes to copying our favorite celebrities’ style, Lady Gaga’s isn’t exactly the easiest fashionista to channel. While the avante garde, usually custom-made numbers work for Gaga’s super artsy image, they’re not exactly pieces you can go pick up at Forever 21. But this weekend Gaga sported a few beauty looks that we can definitely replicate – just maybe in a slightly more subdued context.
In typical Gaga fashion, the musician rocked a super intense version of the up-and-coming red eyeshadow trend. Not only did she sport an unusal eye color, but she also extended it into something of a giant cat eye and topped the whole thing off with a glossy finish.
How to wear it IRL: Combine red and gold for an interpretation of this look that’s more suitable for everyday wear. Feel free to add a glossy edge if you like by adding on a dab of Vaseline or lip balm, and apply a cat eye effect with liquid liner rather than using the red shadow to create the shape. To see exactly how we got this look, check out our beauty tutorial.
Alright so this one is admittedly a little bit crazy, and TBH it’s kind of hard to tell exactly what’s going on here. However, Lady Gaga’s makeup artist cleared it up a little bit when she posted an Instagram showing off the look and describing it as “smudgy marbleized metallic eye balls.”
How to wear it IRL: This is definitely a statement eye, so don’t be afraid to go bold here. The key to rocking a similar (albiet slightly cleaner) look to Gaga’s is by using the same colors (green + purple) and incorporating a whole bunch of glitter.
If you don’t want quite as much shimmer on your lid as the green and purple look, move that sparkle up and onto your brows. Lady Gaga rocked blinged brows multiple times this weekend, but this isn’t the first time she has proven to be a fan of the style. At a recent charity concert, Gaga also sported crystallized brows.
How to wear it IRL: Get a similar look by copying the instructions this makeup artist uses when explaining how to apply Benefit’s Bling Brow kit, which came out last holiday season (and is currently unavailable). Even though you don’t have the kit, all you really need is a pair of tweezers and some gems with adhesive to add a little bit of sparkle to your brows. If you really want to make sure the gems stick, dab a little bit of eyelash glue onto the back.
