FOTD: Modern Geisha Makeup Look, Inc.

After seeing the pics of Lady Gaga’s geisha-inspired lips, I decided to create my very own geisha-inspired look. But unlike the traditional geisha with chalk-white skin, eyes and brows drenched in red and carefully sculpted lips, I wanted to add in a modern twist to make it more wearable. I left the skin bare with just a bit of concealer, swapped out the red for fuchsia and dabbed instead of painted the color on.

What I Used

* Cle de Peau Concealer in Ocher under the eyes and around the nose
* Anastasia Highlighting Eyebrow Kit to fill in eyebrows
* Make Up For Ever Flash Color in Fuchsia on the entire eyelid blended up to the brow bone
* Kryolan Glamour Sparks in Aqua lightly dabbed onto the eyelid
* Make Up For Ever Flash Color in Black to line the top and bottom
* L’oreal Telescopic Mascara in Black on top and bottom lashes
* Make Up For Ever Flash Color in Fuchsia and Red dabbed on the center of the lips with Cle de Peau Concealer in Ocher on the sides

  1. i agree with amy that it is hard to do the geisha look and i think you did a great job. it’s different in a cool kind of way.

  2. i think if you only did the top line with the eyeliner and made the wing more blunt, the look would be a little more tamed whilst still maintaining a quirky edge.
