Ladies and gentlemen, I was just sitting here, thinking of how much I missed when I used to curl up with friends in front of MTV and watch music videos on tv. I miss rocking out to our favorite metal videos and then getting all tarted up to make the boys cry on a Saturday night, or simply playing around with makeup and a few girlfriends talking about what we’d all do when we were dating the stars featured. Therefore, I’m bringing back my own Classic Rock Block. Please feel free to rock out to some of my classic favorite videos and then maybe get inspired to go out and start a little trouble with some of my favorite Maybelline New York makeup paired with them below. Maybe you were born with it – the inclination to ROCK a whole new rocker-inspired makeup look!
Slaughter, “Up All Night” – I am obsessed with the pink lipstick this chick wears in the video (you know, when she’s not walking random dogs or getting doused in water.) I think you can safely replicate it modern-day with my new lipstick favorite, Maybelline New York ColorSensation lipstick in Glisten Up Pink, a berry pink with plenty of shine (due to micro-mirror pigments) and honey nectar for nourished lips.
AC/DC, “Back In Black” – You will obviously need a stay-put black eyeliner if you’re going to rock and roll all night. May I suggest my new contact-lens, smoky-eye-stay-put favorite, Maybelline New York EyeStudio Master Drama Eyeliner in Midnight Master. It’s got rich pigment and the ease of a cream liner but in the precision of a pencil. Oh, and it will last FOREVER, trust me. I’ve tested it for three weeks straight. They don’t move.
Motley Crue, “Wild Side” – I love the thought of a gorgeous girl getting her hands slightly dirty with a really sooty eyeshadow. If you want to work a smoky eye and unleash that inner bad gal, you might want to try an updated theme on 80’s blue eyeshadow with Maybelline New York EyeStudio Color Gleam Cream Eyeshadow in Blue Freeze. Here’s how to do it: swipe the light shade up to the brow bone, use the deep blue across the lid, then smoke it out with the grey shade. Use a steel grey or charcoal liner along the waterline to build it out, then finish with mascara.
And that’s it! So, turn up the speakers and rock your own modern metal-inspired look. Who knows? Maybe that special someone will ask for a backstage pass. 😉
