2010 Halloween Makeup and Costume Ideas
Retire your usual (yawn-worthy) cat or witch looks for one of these new Halloween makeup and costume ideas
Lady GagaSince she first stepped into the music scene last year, Lady Gaga took the music industry by storm. At this year's MTV Video Music Awards, this diva stole the show (as expected) by changing her outfit three times until finally ending up in a dress made out of meat with a matching hat and purse (yes, it was real meat, her hairstylist actually had to bobby pin that slab to her head). Gaga never fails to top her previous outrageous act. Whether it's wearing heel-less platforms or flipping off fans at a baseball game, Gaga is the 2010 icon to go down in the books.
Get her look: Whatever outfit you choose for this costume, Gaga's basic makeup look is to get her large eyes, which she digitally enhanced in her "Bad Romance" music video. Jennings says to first line your waterline with a white pencil like MAC Eye Kohl Pencil in Fascinating, $14.50. Use a white shimmery eye shadow to rim your lower lash line, focusing on the corners. Then use a brown gel liner like Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Espresso Ink, $21 to line the bottom of your lash line, letting it gradually disappear into the whites at the corner.
You definitely want to use false lashes with this look. Jennings suggests gluing three strips of false lashes together the night before. Then, attach them all at once to your top eyelid. Use a demi strip on the bottom as well. For your wig, get a long gray wig and slightly curl the edges. Part the hair in the middle and attach some crazy headpiece to your head (your pick).
