Lady Gaga Inspired FOTD!

As you know I love Lady Gaga and I loveee her new song "Bad Romance". I've watched the video 4892797849 times and really loved her makeup in it. It's not very wearable (only in the confines of my own home), but it was really fun to do! Here are a couple stills from the video I captured. It's insane.



I have no idea what she is wearing makeup wise, so I had to improvise. I'm tan, she's pale, I have dark hair, she's blonde...you know...polar opposites! haha Also, I didn't have the right shade of blush or lipstick so I just kind of grabbed whatever bold colours I had. Now that I think about it... I really want that shade of blush and lipstick. LOL Do you have any suggestions?

Here is my version, kinda different, but whatever. I just winged it. I also tried to pale out my skin, so it's a bit lighter than my neck as you will see. I also should have brought the blush down about a centimeter lower (but that's the perfectionist in me talking). ENJOY! :D


Not a great pic skin wise, but I like how the sun made all my features stand out.

  2. You did a fantastic job! Something tells me that Gaga is a NARS girl.

  4. I love it Cheryl!!! You are so beautiful! btw, what do you use to fill in your brows? I have black hair and I use MAC carbon to fill in my brows but everyone says that even if you have black hair you should never use black to fill in your brows. Yours look so flawless! Any advise on that would be much appreciated. Thank you!

  5. Very pretty! You could try MAC's Russian Red to match Lady Gaga's lips in that video. :)

    yes, about the collection; i don't think the actual product is anything special, yet the pricing is so much more. you're paying more for the packaging...stupid mac. but whatever they got me! it's one of the prettiest collections i've seen so far! <3

  17. Thank you everyone! I'm glad you liked my version. I love trying to copy makeup from pictures! If you have any pictures you think I should try copying send them to ch3ryl_xx@hotmail.com and I'll give it a try.

    @Leah - Thank you! I use a few different things. I like MAC espresso and MAC Brow Shader in Walnut (I add a very tiny amount of carbon to these shadows to deepen the colour when I apply them to my brows). I also like MAC "Spiked" Brow Pencil (which I'm wearing in these photos)!

    @JennXOXO - thanks for the recommendation! I actually have Russian red, but it wasn't deep enough. I should have tried adding Black Knight to it! It would have been perfect.

  18. I've watched it a million times too. lol I love her vids.. they like put me in a trance. It looks like she darkened the edges of her lips with a dark pencil.. maybe black to deepen the red. I love your take on it!! Your eyes look amazingg and I love the 2nd picture!!

  19. @NattynGeorge - I should have tried pencil. I used my Black Knight l/s and it looked like garbage with my NYX lip colour...I had to put tons of gloss overtop to cover it up! lol
