So I finally had enough time to do a Karen O. look! I obviously can’t emulate her hairstyle, but I tried to do my best with the beauty look. I had so much fun playing around with my neglected bright coloured makeup for this look!
One thing that’s glaringly missing are the false lashes…my glue dried out!!! It would have been a much more impactful look if I had the lashes…oh well.
Inspiration: Ms. Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
- porcelain skin
- powder pink cheeks
- glittery bright blue eyes with strong black liner and big lashes
- jelly red lips
The top image is in natural lighting, so it tends to wash out the intensity of the colour.
The bottom two are a better depiction of the glimmery-ness + the gold sparkles I added.
Hehe, the bottom picture looks like I’m cross eyed.
Face = Quo Total Perfection Foundation + Clinique Fresh Bloom in Peony + Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact
Lips = Guerlain Kiss Kiss Shade 523 + random red gloss from Costco
Brows = NYC Browser Brow Kit in Smoke (powder + wax kit)
Eyes = Eyeko 3-in-1 Cream + EDM Shadow in Beach Towel + L’oreal HIP Shadow Duo in Showy + La Palette Shadow in Berlin Blue + Annabelle Quad in Misted Up + NYX Jumbo Pencil in Cottage Cheese + Stila Smudgepot in Black + Coastal Scents Cosmetic Hologram Glitter in Treasure Chest + NYX Doll Eyes Mascara in Waterproof
I combined the Eyeko cream with the EDM shadow to create a base.
Mixing the Berlin Blue and the left side of Showy resulted in the “prismatic” colour.
I got the Showy shadow from Tao’s blog sale. She’s getting rid of a lot of great stuff @ great prices!! Check her blog out – she’s hilarious to boot!
