Makeup is fun, but it is also a pain in the arse. I love the days when I can slap on my Jays hat and just go bare. Of course, I always pray that I won’t bump into someone I know because that would be a disaster of epic proportions. But when it comes to getting ready for a night out, it’s always fun to experiment with different colours and shades, eyelashes and eyeliners. It’s amazing what a thick pair of fake eyelashes and a lick of bright red lippy can do to a gal – it’s like going out in character. The girl in the baseball cap and a ponytail gets locked in the closet for the night and the Troublesome Temptress is unleashed!
However, there is a fine line between being courageous with your face paint and just looking plain wacky. Take, for example, the celebrity. They have an army of minions who know every trick in the book to not only look flawless but to push the envelope on trends. We’ve rallied together a few of what we think are some of the wackiest celeb makeup jobs. Are they thinking outside of the makeup box or should they be reaching for the baby-wipes to wipe that shiz off? Check ’em out…
It will come as no surprise that Ms. Minaj is featured here today as she is hardly a wallflower when it comes to her choices in makeup (or anything else for that matter!). She likes to go big or go home, and we absolutely applaud her for that kick-ass ‘tude. But she did recently pose for the front page of Elle rocking a natural look and she looked gorgeous. Does she need the heavy eyeliner, huge eyelashes and the eye shadow up to her eyebrows, or is it just a tad too much?
She calls herself Gaga so would you expect anything less than the wackiest of beauty looks? Never one to follow a trend, Lady G is a true individual and never fails to surprise when she steps out for the cameras. This look is actually pretty terrifying. That cheekbone effect reminds me of the Grim Reaper. Definitely not one you’d want to bring home to meet your Granny.
I’m sure when you wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy, it can be quite the undertaking to get your makeup on right. So I guess old Kesh’ goes with the “never too much” approach, just to be on the safe side. God forbid we step onto a red carpet looking like we haven’t been partying for the past four days… and are most certainly still intoxicated.
Woah! Someone needs a good nap and a detox! Those dark circles around your eyes are insane! Oh wait, you did that yourself? You actually dipped your finger in a pot of black stuff and drew circles around your eyes? OK… that’s cool…? You look like you might murder me so it looks awesome.
Now this is a pretty unfortunate photo in general but I did only post it for the makeup aspect… *cough, cough*. It’s safe to assume Tyra has her own professional makeup artist. It’s also safe to assume that said makeup artist would’ve done her makeup this particular evening because it was a red carpet event. And based on the evidence, I would definitely assume that this makeup artist is no longer employed with Ms. Banks. No amount of “smizing” can fix this mess…
