Lady Gaga has used eye shadow to make her eyelids look like eyes

Tue, 28 June 2011 11:12AM

I realise that headline is probably a little confusing, Primps; I actually even confused myself a wee bit while writing it. But yes, it is true – Lady Gaga has painted eyes on her own eye lids.

Lady Gaga's crazy eye makeupLady Gaga at the MTV Video Music Aid Japan event in Chiba, Japan, earlier this week.

I know I shouldn’t be shocked by Miss LG anymore, but am I the only one finding this a little creepy? I hope not.

The thought alone of drawing eyes on top of eyes is somewhat odd, but when I look at those faux black pupils and drawn on eye lashes I find myself pinching myself to see if I’m in the middle of a cartoon-esque dream. It turns out I’m not, Primps, and that Lady Gaga is just taking her zaniness up another gigantic notch.

On a random, non-scary sidenote, Gaga’s lips look fantastic. Love the boldness; love the colour. In fact, when worn with black eye liner or a nude eye, those lips are more than copyable, they’re 100% wearable.


What do you think of LG’s latest zany eye makeup?
Are you over her crazniess?
Or do you find it inspiring?
And do you like her lip colour?

    Not a fan of L.Ga, was over her attention seeking ways long ago… BUT THIS IS HILARIOUS!!! I should do my makeup like this and sit in my office for a snooze!!!

    The odd thing is, it doesn’t really work for me… I know what she’s TRYING to do but they only really look like eyes to me if I squint and blur my vision… she’s a strange one.

    It’s a pretty extreme look…I couldn’t pull it off, but everything seems to work for Lady Gaga.

    It looks so dodgy, and I know she does weird stuff, but usually it looks more slick and professional than this. It looks like she got bored while locked in a room with only eyeshadow to amuse herself.

    he he she is loopy!!!!

    definately entertaining, but indeed she could have done better and made them look more like eyes?? they look like cartoon ones at best here…

    This is hilarious. It reminds me of a comedy sketch.

  • Posted by: beautybee1 Master Fan // Tue, 28 June 2011 12:22pm

    I’ve seen this done before actually (though where I can’t rightly say). Just Lady G up to her usual stunts.

  • Posted by: Seren1291175020 Master Fan // Tue, 28 June 2011 01:21pm

    She is always doing different things and I wondering what’s next for her? I too not a big fan with the painted eyes!

  • Posted by: bluebird Master Fan // Tue, 28 June 2011 01:26pm

    Not a fan either. Over her.
    I do like her lippie, nails and jacket though!

  • Posted by: dellie Devotee // Tue, 28 June 2011 01:51pm

    its pretty fitting for an event in Japan…yeck cant stand her nails though

  • Posted by: DebstarDesigns Master Fan // Tue, 28 June 2011 02:03pm

    I find Lady Gaga annoying. Not a fan.

  • Posted by: Julie Rodwell // Tue, 28 June 2011 02:04pm

    Never a dull moment with Lady Gaga.

  • Posted by: kristinkate Devotee // Tue, 28 June 2011 02:12pm

    Betty Boop eye’s spring to mind when I see this!

  • Posted by: MayaS Master Fan // Tue, 28 June 2011 02:12pm

    Very cartoony! Those nails are even more ridonkulous than those eyes if you ask me though!

  • Posted by: sumaya Master Fan // Tue, 28 June 2011 02:41pm

    Love the eyes but the nails look dangerous and so very unhygienic!

  • Posted by: sb // Tue, 28 June 2011 02:48pm

    She might be making a statement on Asia’s obsession with big eyes. Women there will do anything for rounder eyes: falsies (top and bottom), the white eyeliner trick, eyelid tape, double eyelid surgery, all of the above simultaneously. The list could go on forever.

    Or maybe pollyanna21 is right and she got bored in a dressing room with only eyeshadow to entertain her!

  • Posted by: Sarah // Tue, 28 June 2011 02:56pm

    They don’t look like eyes at all. She’s so boring.

  • Posted by: Louise-1295043242 Master Fan // Tue, 28 June 2011 04:15pm

    I heard she also performed this whole song with her eyes closed to get the proper effect with the fake eyes.. that’s very trusting of her!

  • Posted by: SydneyRose Master Fan // Tue, 28 June 2011 04:28pm

    This eye makeup makes her look like a cartoon character. She is being her zany self. Her costumes, hair and makup remindes me of some Sci-Fi characters or cartoon characters.

  • Posted by: ProductJunkie2010 Devotee // Tue, 28 June 2011 04:36pm

    Her make up artist has obviously run out of new ideas….

  • Posted by: Sarah // Tue, 28 June 2011 05:51pm

    Nothing new here, it’s very pirates of the caribbean, ala Jack Sparrow tribal scene. xo

  • Posted by: nidhi12345 Enthusiast // Tue, 28 June 2011 07:42pm

    She looks scary but hats off to her creativity….she is daring… :)

  • Posted by: xKMS Master Fan // Tue, 28 June 2011 07:57pm

    omg i love lady gaga!! and that is so awesome! i bet the japanese people would appreciate the effort shes put in!! they love the cartoon/big eye look!!

  • Posted by: xKMS Master Fan // Tue, 28 June 2011 08:01pm

    wow just noticed her finger nails!! you guys are right.. they are a bit scary.. lol but shes ‘larger then life’ its fitting that her nails should be too… also just looking at her is trippy lol (and the cartoon eyes are probably just a continue on from her bad romance video) :)

  • Posted by: Diana // Tue, 28 June 2011 08:20pm

    how boring. doesn’t even look like eyes, i expect more detail from her :S

  • Posted by: chicklet Master Fan // Tue, 28 June 2011 08:25pm

    I love seeing her different looks. This is very anime-influenced, and I’ve seen it done before. Not one to try at home though – unless you’re going to an anime convention!

  • Posted by: Jenelley Supporter // Tue, 28 June 2011 08:29pm

    I’m really over the zany makeup, she’s amazingly talented. She doesn’t need the crazy makeup and hair styles to get attention.

  • Posted by: RROZZ Enthusiast // Tue, 28 June 2011 08:53pm

    Not very effective… but really good if you plan to walk around with your eyes closed…

  • Posted by: Valeta Au // Tue, 28 June 2011 11:06pm

    This isn’t a first for Gaga, check out her Hello Kitty photo shoot with Markus Klinko & Indrani.

  • Posted by: Ashlee-1299763546 Enthusiast // Tue, 28 June 2011 11:32pm

    This definitely doesn’t look as skillful as her other looks. I’m just glad I wasn’t the only one who had to squint and blur my vision a bit to make sense of it!

  • Posted by: B // Wed, 29 June 2011 10:11am

    my goodness – so over Lady Gaga!

  • Posted by: Becca Master Fan // Wed, 29 June 2011 11:22am

    This is too funny, I wonder what she will do next. She reminds me of a cartoon car with big eyes like that.

  • Posted by: MissMel Enthusiast // Wed, 29 June 2011 12:21pm

    You are not alone, that is TOTALLY creepy!
    I am amazed at GaGa’s ability to keep finding new ways to get herself noticed.

  • Posted by: karleymichelle Enthusiast // Wed, 29 June 2011 01:23pm

    hahaha!! It’s a little like Johnny Depp in I think the first Pirates movie??

  • Posted by: Fashionista8P Master Fan // Wed, 29 June 2011 04:17pm

    ow dear, just another one of her outrageous attempts to get in the papers.

  • Posted by: beautybabe111 Master Fan // Wed, 29 June 2011 09:54pm

    Lady gaga’s a little to out there for me, okay maybe more then a little. I can’t stand her style and her music just sounds like all the other so called ‘top 10 songs’ which are just songs which have had so much tuning and changing to their voice that I’m suprised they can even be called an artist, it’s all repeat, repeat, repeat and then get stuck in every bodys head. Not a fan of miss gaga, but this picture gave me a good laugh though and she always has a nice pout always got her lippie applied well!

  • Posted by: Tina-1291133452 Master Fan // Thu, 30 June 2011 03:04am

    haha i did this once on a friend.. she has brown eyes and i drew them green… it was scary!

  • Posted by: kanjiqueen21 Newbie // Thu, 30 June 2011 01:24pm

    I agree with sb and pollyanna21! Love the lipstick, pretty undecided about the hair, hat and earrings…

  • Posted by: strawbsundae Master Fan // Thu, 30 June 2011 05:42pm

    Wow, what an illusion!

  • Posted by: katiekates Devotee // Thu, 30 June 2011 09:06pm

    thats funny. totally considering doing this when its a slow day at work:) kind of reminds me of pirates of the carribean, i’m sure Johnny depp did the same thing

  • Posted by: dietrich // Sat, 2 July 2011 02:16pm

    she so stupid.she used to be kinda cool and fun to watch..but she reminds me of the clown i had at my 5yr old birthday wore weird outfits and had strange hair and did all kinds of weird things to make us laugh but u know 20 yrs later no 1 can remember the clowns name?

  • Posted by: sprinkles37 Master Fan // Fri, 8 July 2011 01:53pm

    im kinda sick off lady g. shes constantly trying to be out there. If she spent more time on her music than her outfits i might like her more

  • Posted by: LITTLE MONSTAR // Thu, 21 July 2011 03:41pm

    I love it soooo much, im going to get my bste friend bree and we’ll walk down the main street of town wearing this and some gaga clothes! 😀

  • Posted by: GorgeousEmeralds Master Fan // Tue, 2 August 2011 11:59am

    This look is not one I would replicate! On the other hand I would never copy any of Lady Gaga’s looks :)

  • Posted by: beautiful87 Master Fan // Sun, 1 September 2013 03:23pm

    Hahaha looks ok on her.

  • Posted by: talkalot Master Fan // Tue, 5 August 2014 09:10pm

    I love Lady Gaga’s theatrics with everything she does. This is a fun look.
