We R Who We R – Ke$ha Concert Beauty Breakdown, Part 2 (Glitter Unicorn Princess)

23 Aug

Hey pals! Happy Tuesday. Wasn’t it nice out yesterday? The weather almost made up for the fact that it was a Monday!

Today on the blog, we have the makeup I put on my friend Katie for the Ke$ha concert we went to this past weekend. You saw my look yesterday – kind of a dark, vampy and mysterious trailer trashy style. With Katie, I went completely in the opposite direction. She’s a pretty free spirit and I wanted to reflect that in her makeup – so these colors are fairly hippie-ish, with a heavy-handed dose of glitter. What do you think?

I used colors from Urban Decay‘s very first Book of Shadows, a discontinued LE product that came out in 2008. It had a pop-up book style cover and came with two brushes and a mini UDPP. The shadows were in a little pull-out drawer. Check it out!

I started with a base of UDPP all the way up the lid to the brow, followed by a Visine-heavy (to prevent glitter fallout) coat of Midnight Cowboy. Midnight Cowboy is a color that you can find in almost every palette Urban Decay churns out – a nude shimmery shadow jam-packed with silver glitter. I added Grifter, a shimmery pink-based lavender with silver glitter, to the outer two thirds of the lid, and Mayhem, an iridescent royal purple, to the crease. I darkened that up even more by applying Last Call, a shimmery burgundy, to the outer V.

Around here, I stepped back and asked myself if there was enough glitter or color on Katie’s face. Of course there wasn’t! This is Ke$ha we’re talking about. I added Shattered, a frosty sky blue duochrome with a green cast, to the inner V, and Absinthe, a shimmery light green duochrome with a gold cast, to the inner third of the bottom lid. (You can’t get the palette anymore, but you can buy the individual shades here or here.) I finished up Katie’s eyes with black eyeliner and lots of mascara. I cleaned up the glitter fallout that Visine didn’t catch with some Scotch tape – it’s not as aggressive as it sounds, and works really well!

On her cheeks, we used a blush of hers, a rosy mocha shade. I suggested a lipgloss of mine, MAC Prrr, to pull the whole thing together. (I think the frosty peach gloss makes the look even sweeter.) Katie dug the look, as you can see by this picture.

What do you think of this glitter unicorn princess look? Is it totally Ke$ha or totally kindergarten?
