Celebrity Makeup Spotlight: Lady Gaga and Beyonce In Telephone Music Video

The new Telephone music video by Lady Gaga and Beyonce finally premiered last night so here are some screencaps I created for you ladies to get a taste of that delish ferocity.

The video is a sequel to Gaga’s Paparazzi video and both ladies donned some very interesting looks, including lipsticks in various brights hues like red, hot pink and black, strong eyebrows, smoky eyes in blue and Beyonce’s signature winged eyeliner. Which look is your favorite?

I will be doing faces of some of these looks shortly. Feel free to use the screencaps but please remember to link back to Makeup For Life.

  1. I love that 2nd picture of Lady Gaga. I love the dark blue/purple eyeshadow and those pink lips. I love the 1st and 2nd picture of Beyonce. That dark lipstick looks unique on her.

  2. I LOVE this Music Video !!!

    I love the 1st and 2nd of Lady Gaga : it’s exactly the same look that she had for the Grammys so I think it’s the great makeup artist Billy B who has worked for this video :)

    For Beyoncé : winged eyeliner + hot yellow eyeshadow is awesome and I like very much her nails !

  3. OOH! I finally found the video haha. Favourite looks

    Gaga: The ending scene with the purple veil and extended eyeliner
