Tutorial: Alejandro Gaga


16units2go asked me to do my version of Lady Gaga's makeup in her Alejandro video. Here's my look:

And here's the original:
(Dang, I forgot the beauty mark :P)

And I got a tutorial for you too!

You need:

- White Base / Light shimmery base ( I used Inglot gel liner #76 & MAC Still Life paint)
- Light gold-ish eyeshadow ( I used MAC Gold Mode pigment)
- Darker, browner eyeshadow ( Mine was MAC Heritage Rouge pigment)
- White eyeshadow (I used matte white, MAC Gesso, but shimmery white works great too!)
- Black liner (I used MAC Blitz&Glitz)
- Black mascara
(false lashes)

For lips I used MSCHIC Vintage with Revlon red lipgloss.

Here we go:

I based my lid with Inglot's gel liner #76:

I then added MAC Still Life paint over the white base, to create a shimmery, but light base for shadows:

Add MAC Gold Mode pigment from the middle of the lid to outer corner:

Apply MAC Heritage Rouge to outer V:

Then add white shadow (I used MAC Gesso, but you can use shimmer too) to inner corner and highlight:

White liner (I used Inglot's gel eyeliner #76) to waterline:

Then I added a small amount of MAC Shadowy Lady to lower lasline:

Then it's eyeliner's turn, make the line thicker from the middle point, and very thin from inner corner:
(you can actually see the eyeshape changing here :D)

And do a thick wing to outer corner:

And finish the makeup with mascara:

And with MAC #34 lashes (I also added a hint of Shadowy Lady to crease to create a better V-shape):

PS. I finally ordered it:
I'm just soooo excited!
(Sugarpill's Burning Heart palette <3)
