NOT FAIR #1: Lady Gaga's Mod Makeup Tutorial

Unicorns come in all shades, so why don't Celebrity Makeup Tutorials? NOT FAIR tutorials show the makeup of fair skinned celebrities on brown skin.

The only thing better than watching Lady Gaga sing with the legendary Tony Bennett for H&M is dying over how amazing her makeup is! Also, points for not using a Christmas song in the Holiday Campaign. Check out the full commercial and my version of Lady Gaga's mod look below.

To begin I pulled out my favorite foundation, Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H in 530 Suede C. To get Gaga's subtle glow, I mixed my foundation with Murad Absolute Bronzing Boost, a low glitter liquid bronzer. Using the pads of my fingers, I applied a quarter sized dollop on my cheeks then blended it out with my Sephora Collection Classic Mini Multitask #45.5.

Next I blotted my L'Oreal Paris True Match Crayon Concealer in Medium/Deep Warm W6-7-8 in an triangle under my eyes, extending it all the way to my hairline - Pictured below on the left. On the right - my concealer after smoothing everything out with my Beauty Blender.

I follow this by highlighting my forehead and cheek bones with Benefit Watt's Up! Using a fluffy blush brush, I then set everything by stippling Sephora Collection Smoothing Translucent Setting Powder all over my face.

To start the eyes, I used Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer from my lash line to just about my brows.  drew in a full, extra round eyebrow with Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW Pommade in Ebony and their eyebrow brush #12.

As a base, I used NYX Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean on the mobile lid, winging it out into a chunky cat eye. I then used NYX Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil in Pots & Pans in the crease and halfway to the brow.

I built on my base by stippling Lancome Color Design in Style Section over the silver and Lancome Color Design Infinite 24H  in 602 Forever Noir  over the black. I followed by using my usual contour - Black Opal True Color Stick Foundation in Suede Mocha - as blush just along by cheek bone.

To finish everything off I added top and bottom lashes (Ardell #109 and Ricky's Care #49 respectively) and Lancome L'Absolue Nu lipstick in 311 Pale Petal.

Love, Light and Glitter Always!
