You know what I’m taking about when I say ‘crazy/beautiful make-up you must try at least once in your life time’, don’t you girls? I’m talking about the insanely full eyebrows that have been enhanced with super bright eyeliner, and cat eye contact lenses! The kind of make-up that you’ll only ever see on models, walking Fashion Week runways right? Wrong! There are so many crazy but insanely beautiful make-up looks that the runways have showed off, that we really, really want to try out, even if it is just once, at least you’ll be remembered for wearing insanely gorgeous make-up one in your life time, and not just mediocre plain Jane make up.
So, let’s get straight to it! Some of the looks that we see on the runways are a little bit unrealistic for everyday wear, I mean are you really going to paint your entire eyelid with blue and black eye line and then glue a massive feather onto the side of your face, just before you head down to the store to grab your morning coffee before work? I don’t think so! Unless your job is a cabaret dancer in some Broadway musical! However, if you’ve been invited to a dress up party or a Halloween party, why not try it out, everyone is going to go dressed up as a sexy nurse or sexy cop, it gets old after a couple of years, why not go as an enchanted forest creature, and cover yourself in crazy body paint, making your make up the centre of attention? Instead of showing you a bunch of whacky and insane runway looks I’ve decided to break this down in a more avant-garde manner for you, by showing a group of select celebrities who have all pulled off the crazy but beautiful make up look in some way or another, here goes!
Extremely Crazy Cat Eyes
It’s really hard to pick which celebrity ‘does’ this look best, my two favourite celebs who pull this look off perfectly, and ever-so-elegantly, yet with much extremity, are Gwen Stefani and Katy Perry. Gwen Stefani seems to go for a more finished and eloquent look with her cat eye make-up where Perry often rocks this look with all kinds of colour variations, giving it a little bit of extra edge! Check out how she layers her bright greens and shocking blue’s with this cat eye make-up version, make sure you get a shimmering and creamy eye shadow if you’re keen on this look, and maybe a pair of dark brown contact lenses, especially if you have lighter eyes, the dark eyes will elevate this look much more. Oh, and of course a set of big, chunky false eye-lashes.
Smoky Glittery Madness
Seriously, what crazy make-up story is complete without a little bit of the crazy and uber fantastic Lady Gaga? I actually adore this look, and while trying to wear this much smoky grey eye-make-up and glitter at the same time is probably not a good idea to your mother-in-law’s BBQ this Sunday, it would be perfect to your next night out clubbing with the girls! So if you’re going to go for Gaga’s smoky glittery madness look, then you’re going to need charcoal grey or very dark navy blue eye shadow, and try stick with creamy and smooth shadows though, that way it will be easier when you have to layer on all the glitter. When choosing a glitter, make sure you’re getting a glitter that matches the eye shadow you’re using, so stick to darker shades for this look.
Ravishing Red Eyes
Kirsten Stewart completely knocks the ball out of the ballpark with this look! I absolutely love her smoking red and deeply dark make up that she’d wearing. Stewart has been known for her red eyes in other promiscuous situations, however these red eyes, are the gorgeous kind. Now, usually red eye shadow is not a great palate choice for eye make-up as it tends to make you look rather ‘flu-ish’, but if you mix in a deep plum shaded eye shadow with the red, and top it off with sleek kohl eye liner, you’ll create a very alluring, seductive and even mysterious characteristic to your make-up. Perfect make-up for a first date, especially if you grab yourself a pair of striking green contact lenses to add a finishing touch to your make-up.
Clockwork Orange Lashes
Genniffer Goodwin and Jennifer Lopez, two celebs who absolutelyadore wearing false lashes, especially the big feathery and chunky ones, and do you blame them? What a fun way to liven up plain Jane make-up, with some edgy and funky feathery lashes, especially if they’re worn on the bottom lashes, like Goodwin does! Just remember that if you’re going to go for this look, and are a contact lens user, you need to be 100% sure that your contact lenses don’t come into any contact with the glue that you’ll use on your false lashes, and your best option would be to put your lenses in well after your lashes have dried properly!
