Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Lady Gaga

March 21, 2009

Just like her chart-topping singles, pop diva Lady Gaga‘s makeup style is totally hot!

Despite the bronze skin we see, our lady is naturally a porcelain process (just look at the picture on top right). To fake Gaga’s tan, use a self-tanner (remember no tanning allowed!) I highly recommend Jergens Natural Glow Express Body Moisturizer for a fast and natural tan but you can also check out my self-tanner reviews for more options.

Gaga’s skin is also flawless so use a foundation with medium to high coverage if necessary. She uses Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation on her face and body.

Lay low on the blush and apply it only on the cheekbone. Lady Gaga is not going for the sweet look so blush is hardly seen on the apples.

The eyes are definitely the focus in Gaga’s looks. To recreate her look, you need:

* Black eyeliner applied thickly especially on the top.
* False eyelashes. Gaga uses Make Up For Ever and Shu Uemura lashes.
* Bold eyeshadows. Check out brands like MAC and Make Up For Ever for super bright hues that would make your eyes pop and be creative. Our lady is not afraid of color.

When it comes to the lips, Gaga has worn it all – hot pink, red, orange, pink, nude. Her lip line is always defined so use a lip liner before applying lipstick and adding shine with a gloss on top.

    I love Lady Gaga.
    Her music is awesome and I love her style ! But I think that her fake tan is too much on the last picture, I don’t like at all.
