Valentine’s Day Makeup: Lady Gaga Lips & Purples

Valentine’s Day Makeup: Lady Gaga Lips & Purples

Here’s a fun look using Viva Glam Gaga! 🙂 I wanted to warm up the eyes a bit, so I opted for a mix of pinks and purples with gold eyeliner (which was where I drew a lot of the warmth from), to pair it with the cooler pink from the lipstick. Happy Thursday!

Don’t forget, Spring Colour Forecast hits stores today!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Soft Ochre paint pot as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. With the 239 and water-based mixing medium (or water), apply Stacked 1! light lilac pigment all over the lid area. Using the 239, apply Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow on the inner third of the eyelid. Next, apply Lala eyeshadow on the middle third of the eyelid and lightly blend with the inner corner. Darken the outer third of the lid with Very Violet eyeshadow with the 239, gently brushing it into the lower crease. Lightly blend Black Tulip eyeshadow, with the 239, on the outer corner and lid. Lightly tap and brush Beautiful Iris eyeshadow directly above the inner tear duct for iridescence.  To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying El Dorado eyeliner on the lower lash line and sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Azalea Blossom blush ombre to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Viva Glam Gaga lipstick first, and then layer Cultureclash lipglass for a complementing lip.

So beautiful, Christine! Love the purple and gold combo!
BTW, I agree with you boyfriend…you look fantastic in light pink lipstick (does that make me sound creepy?!) 🙂

Wow… so beautiful. I love the touch of gold, with the eye liner. For some odd reason, I didn’t think it work but it is actually pretty awesome. Gorgeous look, Christine. 🙂

I love the eye. It’s really cute.
But why is Gaga looking so clumpy? I really thought I was going to love her shade because I love pinks, but it doesn’t look like it applies so well.
I’d love to see a look with Cyndi. Because the more I look at Gaga, the more I am loving Cyndi.

Pretty eyes! I’m so glad all the shots you’re doing now show a full-face with eyes closed! It’s great to be able to see how the eye colors look with the lipstick/blush/etc.

so beautifulllll ( roses i must say hahahaha)
no dear u r also looking beautiful ….
the roses would be perfect match for ur sunset look the other day..

u carry on pinks very well … like u carry golds and teals
i wonder what other color is left ????

means u carry ur makeup very well and do wish for me as well plssss….
i do wanna have perfection like u do in blending all the colors…
any golden rules for blending ???

Thank you so much, Rashmi!

Golden rule – blend less than you think. Either use a fluffy brush like the 217 to make sure you don’t over blend or try layering the color over softly, so you don’t have to blend much.

Don’t do anything to it, lol! I don’t use any styling products or tools on it, which I imagine accounts for at least half of how it looks 🙂

so I just gave this site to the lady at best buy who spent 20 minutes asking me how I did my make up because she loved it. It was an idea I got off this site! just thought I’d share. 😉

Thanks for the look! This helps a lot with figuring out what to do with VG7 gaga Beautiful as always!

PS: I would love to see a mini series of lip combos that includes lady gaga layered with different warmer glosses to see how that can change the intensity of it. I want to love it, but its so blue-based/cool toned for my skintone (NC40)

love this look! I never thought about pink eyeshadow, I thought it made my eyes look bruised and swolen, but your tutorials have really inspired me and im off to find the perfet pink (or inexpensive lala dupe)

Also, (if you have time) sometimes could you do one eye with dupes an one eye with proper colours or swatch the dupes next the the actual colours so then I can compare and mix colours…because i’m a perfectionist like that 🙂

also sometimes if the collection is long gone I swatch the dupe you listed on my hand and look round the drugstore and try to find a dupe
haha I end up with so much eyeshadow all over me

Thanks a lot, Hannah! Pink with gold is always a nice way to make it look less swollen… or with brighter purples. Definitely keep trying, though. I remember the first time I did pink… my mom asked if I had been crying!

You can find all the swatches in the gallery! (Sometimes I don’t always have the dupe I recommend, because I have the LE version of it.)

Have you tried searching for the products? It might have dropped off the list of “what’s new” but the products may still be up.

beautiful!!! im going to try this for valentine’s day. i just hope that it doesnt make me look like im tired or have pink-eye (since bright pink eyeshadow usually does that to me).
im still in love with that blush and violet eyeshadow. cant wait to go get it! =)

Pretty! I got GAGA lipstick today, I may pair it with Baby sparks or Internationalist. I got all my Spring Forecast goodies at the store today, can’t wait to try them on. Happy V-Day.

Looks awesome! I’m hitting the M.A.C counter after I get out of class in 2 hours. 😛 Here I come Viva Glam lipsticks and Colour Forecast collection!

We pretty much have the same coloring so seeing you wear Viva Glam Gaga gives me hope. <3

Thanks so much for doing the looks.. Your swatches are great, but I love looking at your makeup looks to see how the shades look in the whole face shot. Gaga lipstick is pretty, but don’t think I can pull it off. Snob looks ghostly on me and this would do the same! Dang! 😀

eyes look nice….lip color could use a liner so it wont look washed out…..lipstick is so much better on a tan skin tone. im nc42. looks so great on me. nc 40,nc42,45 etc. if you are fair, wear a liner!

Beautiful 🙂 I think the lips would be too cool for me, but I am sure I could figure out something that would work for me. Of course, this makes me want TOO many things from the Spring Forecast collection, urgh! I’m going to head into the nearest mall on Saturday morning and see what I just can’t resist . . .

I know you got bombarded with possible “dupes” for Lady Gaga’s lipstick but how would you compare it with “Fashion Mews” with the Hello Kitty line?

I would never have thought to pair gold liner with the pink and purple shadows! Might try that next time instead of my usual black or purple liner on the lower lash line. Always do black on the upper but it’s fun to mix it up on the lower, right!

You rock every look you do! That lip color seems out of place, but everything just pulls together with the end and your lips are just fearless! On that note, what other glosses do you recomment with viva glam gaga to warm it up?

I agree with Annie… Love the eyes, but I just can’t seem to like the lips. Howevah….. You pull off the whole thing just beautifully. 🙂 Dramatic eyes just suit you so well.

Love the eyes, but not the lips, you could never convince me to buy this lipstick (like with Saint German, lol). But you look very pretty anyway. 🙂

awwwwwww good job BF!!!!! Your flowers are so pretty 🙂

You can totally pull off any colour!!! It’s awesome!!

Question – What lip colour would you recommend with light purple eye combo of: Shale, Banshee and Shroom??? I have on a very light mix of NARS Mata Hari and Dolce Vita blush. I’m NW15 in MAC. Having problems with lip colour today for some reason…

Thank you so much, Cherie! I love that he picks up on little things (I mentioned I liked these more fiery roses months ago!).

Hmm… I’d say either kind of a plum-berry kind of shade or a lighter blue-pink (but not too frosty or pale).

Aww! It is so nice that he remembers the little things that mean something to you. He sounds like a keeper for sure 😉

Thanks for the reco! 🙂

Love it, Christine. I’ve been outta the MAC loop for a while–I haven’t even gone to a store yet to check out anything in the whole Amber/Pink/Plum/Coral collection (can’t remember what it’s called, embarassingly 🙂 ) but you always bring me back! I love the pop of gold on the waterline–purple/pink/gold is a really good combo on you.

I love how you use metallic eyeshadows!! I am not used to pink lips ( I am a more neutral kind of girl) but the complete look is so stunning that I will try it =) Everything looks great on you!!!
Thanks for not being able to resist and sharing the gorgeous roses ^_^ ♥x♥x♥
