Lady Gaga Make-Up Look

Love her, or hate her, Lady Gaga is anything but inconspicuous. Her looks are as changeable as the direction of the wind, and are as predictable as where and when a tornado will touch down. (She generates as much attention as a tornado, too.) Yet, I am often asked how someone can get a look that the Lady G has sported in a video and/or television appearance.
 
I often have to disappoint my questioner when I reveal that the hair or the look in question is a wig or is computer-generated. The wig part is usually easier to accept, since a person may find an inexpensive wig similar to one Lady Gaga has worn. The CGI part of the equation usually means that the individual is left feeling dejected.

I experienced just this recently when a friend who wanted to attend a fancy-dress party as Lady Gaga from her “Bad Romance” video asked me how she could get her eyes to look the way Lady Gaga’s eyes do in the bathtub scene of the video. When I explained that her eyes had been computer enhanced to make them appear larger and that is wasn’t just some special cosmetic lenses she was wearing she became dejected. I did some searching and we discovered some tips and tricks that helped her pull together a “Bad Romance” look that had everyone “going Gaga”.
 
Defining Gaga
 
Lady Gaga’s many looks all have a common ideal: they are HIGH GLAM. The styles of her hair and make-up are more artistic expressions than esthetic enhancements. From false lashes made of feather to metallic appliqués adhered to the face, Lady Gaga wears her fashion as an extension of her creative sense – and she rarely does anything by halves.
 
Bad Romance:
 
Lady Gaga make-up The video for “Bad Romance” features a variety of looks, but the one with which we will concern ourselves here is the look Gaga sports in the bathtub scene. It focuses heavily on the eyes, and in fact, her eyes in the video are computer enhanced to appear significantly larger than they really are with a disproportionately large iris. While we cannot replicate this look exactly, there are make-up tips that will allow us to create the look of a “bigger” eye.
 
As usual, we begin with a freshly washed face with an application of your favorite moisturizer. In case you have by chance forgotten why we do this, it is because the moisturizer helps to even out level of moisture in the skin and prevents the skin from drinking up too much of the moisture of liquid and cream cosmetics, allowing them to be applied more smoothly.
