Stars in (and all ’round) their Eyes.

or “I was made for loving you, baby…”

I was having a bit of a spring clean-out, of my make-up bag trunk this morning, and found loads of multi-coloured / sparkly shadows, liners and pencils that I’d kind of forgotten I had. While I was doing said Spring-clean I had this weeks Top40 countdown on MTV and realised how much I love the revival of dramatic eye / face make-up in pop music at the moment. Apart from Lady Gaga who is pretty much leading the way when it comes dramatic anything, there are loads of other ladies grabbing the glitter pen too:

Lady Gaga

Lily Allen

Florence Welch

and Ke$ha (above & below).

…are all doing their own awesome versions of dramatic / stage eye make-up. (Love this last picture!)

Not forgetting, either, the men that led the way in the 70’s.

Gene Simmons, KISS

David Bowie, Aladdin Sane Album

… so I thought, I’d have a go at this myself … one subtle (ish), silver and glitter pattern over one eye later and what do you know, I kinda like it.

I’d just prefer something a little darker and more dramatic…

Now we’re talking, Plus I like it so much I have to keep nipping off to the bathroom to have a look, it’s so sparkly! Close-up:

    [along with some other glitter eyeliners I have in my (3) make-up bags…..]

    I love this blog. I remember Alladin Sane and still have the LP. Bowie was so cool at the time and I remember playing this album over and over and over……

    Eeee can’t wait for the GaGa concert on Saturday!

    And I love your eye make-up! I think the silver one is my favourite, cos it’s a subtle take on the trend!

    Thanks so much for all the lovely comments ladies. I had to stop myself from buying ten more glitter liners to do more looks today!

    fair play to you! it looks awesome – did you actually don it outside? i would have muchos respect for someone in a nightclub with those eyes. more dramatic make-up i say.
