LADY GAGA Super Bowl LI Half Time Show Beauty Breakdown
Sarah Tanno from Marc Jacobs Beauty worked her magic on Lady Gaga and created an iconic Marc Jacobs Beauty look for her performance at the Super Bowl LI on February 5th 2017.
“To create the look, I took inspiration from all of the iconic looks throughout Gaga’s career and just elevated it into something new. I wanted her to be able to look at this 10 years from now, and have it feel timeless!” – Sarah Tanno
The Face: Tanno had just one thing in mind – to create a natural yet flawless face!
⦁ To prep the skin, Tanno applied a thin layer of MJB Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer which soothes the skin, extends makeup wear and evens skin texture for a perfect canvas.
⦁ To create depth, Tanno started by applying a small amount of MJB Re(Marc)able Full Cover Concealer in 3 Young to the high points of Gaga’s face and then applied MJB Re(Marc)Able Full Cover Concealer in 7 Bright to the sculpting points
⦁ For an even complexion, Tanno used MJB Genius Gel Super-Charged Oil-Free Foundation in 44 Golden Medium, and finished by highlighting under her eyes and the bridge of her nose with MJB Remedy Concealer Pen in 6 After Hours.
⦁ To set the face, Tanno applied MJB Perfection Powder – Featherweight Foundation in 360 Golden, and then created warmth and contours by dusting the MJB #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder in Dream Filter 20 on her cheekbones and forehead.
⦁ Cheeks: To tie eyes and lips into the look, Tanno used MJB Air Blush Soft Glow Duo in 500 Lush & Libido on the apples of Gaga’s cheeks for a soft rose color that’s feminine and natural for a performance.
The Eyes: Tanno wanted to keep the eye shimmery and glamorous to complement Gaga’s crystal eye mask for the beginning of the show, and keep them classic and feminine for the latter part of the show.
⦁ Tanno started the look with the eyes by applying MJB Twinkle Pop Stick eyeshadow in Au Revoir 406, as a base to ultimately create a feminine yet bold shimmery eye.
⦁ She then lined the eyes with MJB Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Violet Femme 82 and blended it into the base for a soft lavender effect
⦁ Next, she applied the purple shade of MJB About Last Night Style Eye Con no. 20 Eyeshadow Palette to add depth to the crease of the eye, and then brightened the purple tones of the crease with MJB Style Eye Con no. 7 Plush Eyeshadow Palette in The Tease 202.
⦁ For brightness and luminosity around the eye, Tanno highlighted the brow bone with the lightest pink shade from MJB Style Eye Con no. 7 Plush Eyeshadow Palette in The lover 220.
⦁ To add definition and outline to the eye, she then used the MJB Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Blacquer 42 all along the lash line to create a dramatic wing, and finished it with the MJB Magic Marc’er Precision Pen Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Blacquer to bring it to a sharp point and create Gaga’s iconic cat eye.
⦁ She proceeded to apply the MJB Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Pink of Me 59 in the water line to open the eyes
⦁ Tanno finished Gaga’s eyes by adding multiple layers of her favorite MJB Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara to the top lashes and MJB Feather Noir Ultra-skinny Lash Discovering Mascara to the bottom lashes for drama.
⦁ Brows: Tanno created perfectly groomed brows on Gaga in two steps: First, she applied the MJB Brow Wow Defining Longwear Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown 8 to fill in and create natural color. Then, she brushed the brows into place with MJB Brow Tamer Grooming Gel, which keeps brows put and well-defined.
The Lips: Tanno wanted to create an iconic bright red lip to serve as both the perfect classic juxtaposition to the sparkling glamour of Gaga’s crystal eye mask, and the focal point for when she removed the mask.
⦁ She started by prepping the lips with MJB Lip Lock Moisture Balm to hydrate and moisturize, followed by MJB Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Dashing 206. After the first layer, she blotted, and then reapplied the same shade to create the perfect candy apple red lip.
⦁ For a final touch of glamour, Tanno finished off the look with a touch of MJB Enamored Hi-Shine Gloss Lip Lacquer Lip gloss in 332 Hot Hot Hot, a hi-shine bright fuchsia shade.
