Could face painting be the next big beauty trend?

So I'm not referring to the face painting bobo the clown used to do on your face at the county fare when you were 8. Nnnno. I'm talking about subtle, but artfully done extension of your eyeliner and shadow. A bit gaga'esk, I guess. But I was flipping through the holiday edition of a Sephora catalog I got in the mail the other night, and I was just so inspired by some of the makeup, colors, textures, page layout, graphic design... okay, back to makeup. It was really awesome; as if though we're right on the brink of something new that would really be "OKAY" to do when going out to a serious party or rave. I know this is being done already to a certain extent, but what are the chances for it to become a bit more mainstream, and let's face it, a bit more acceptable? Sounds fun or just silly?

I think on the right gal, right time, right place it would totally work.

I think it sounds awesome! Of course, yes, it has to be done subtly -- not like butterflies flappin' all over your face. Sometimes I do an extra long wing when I do a cat eye with liquid liner. I have also painted on (sparingly) eyelashes with liquid liner on my bottom lashline for a super edgy look and I got lots of "ohhs" and "ahhs".

I totally see what you're talking about, it seems like celebrities are getting a bit more daring with their makeup (although most still play it pretty safe) and I bet this will trickle down to us "normal" people too. While I wouldn't wear face paint to the office, I would definitely try some extended eyeliner and crazy eye shadow shades at a party.
