Lady Gaga Skull Makeup and Pink Hair
As you can see below is my work (Hair and Makeup) for one of my client (another big fan of Lady Gaga).
My client attending Lady Gaga Concert and he had asked me to do half face skull and half face monster as the theme for the concert is monster, for the monster half he has given me a photos to copy and made it into black and white for him. He also want the makeup to be long lasting incase he dance and get hot/sweaty….
The makeup took longer than normal face painting makeup/character makeup as i needed to do a based 1st that is long lasting and then go over with colours.
Below are the products I use for his makeup:
For the based I use MAC pot paint in white and black
After I use Ben Nye cream to apply over the black and white colour to give a wet texture. then I apply eyes shawdow powder on top using White, Black, and Grey tone.
The paint pot will make the makeup stay lot longer and won’t rub off until you wash off with a makeup remover.
For hair we use a blond straight layer wing, and pin to one side and tease the top and side up. Finishing off with pink hairspray.
You probably wondering why there is a spit in his shirt? Welllll…. my client remember to wear black as I suggested to the makeup appointment (wear top similar to your costume) but he forgot to wear something that he doesn’t need to take over his head…. so he said I can cut his shirt so I thought if I did the side split he can still reused the shirt again hehehee….
Below is another client I did for a work party she went to.
She wanted to dress up as Lady Gaga, this client didn’t request the makeup to be long lasting or sweat proof so I only use Ben Nye white for the based and set with white eyes shadow. For the black area I used liquid eyeliner and black MAC gel eye liner so its a lot faster. If you don’ t have these products you can use white and black face pant.
Lady Gaga is one of my big inspiration… Love love her style….
For my 1st International Hair Competition that I had entered in and won 1st place global (see below image). Lady gaga style/fashion has inspire me to create such a imaginative advant garde style. The theme for the competition that year (2010) was ‘Wedding in 2050’, and below was my creation.
HAIR by VIVIANNE TRAN
This hair took me 3 full day to create. I couldn’t do it early as we needed to find the right model for the style I wanted to create, once the model confirm then I can put my ideas into paper and start drawing. It was very hard to find a model with hair pass waste line. The most exciting part is when everything start to come together and when I see my work on the model. The joy of seeing your completed work, words cant describe… Happy from inside out…
Following Lady Gaga fashion/style, she had proven that there is no limit….. and like fashion, hair/makeup its all a form of art and our imagination had no limit, we can create as big and crazy as we want and not be scars of what other think…….. what is beautiful for someone could not be for other. Everyone view art different and as the same for fashion.
Lady Gaga has her own unique style and that is why I envy her sooooo much and I’m sure alot of Gaga Fans out there will also agree, and I’m always looking out to see what she have next for us…. she always surprise her with her amazing creative style.
Every time I talk about Lady Gaga, I keep dream of one day I get to work with Lady Gaga creative team….
