DOES HIGH FASHION TRANSLATE? MY MOHAWK PONYTAIL IN REAL LIFE..WELL, LOS ANGELES

Meg here! SO I am pretty obsessed with W Magazine and all of the couture and the models dramatic looks. I’m daring. I love a beaded headpiece as much as the next girl. It’s just some of the designs that come down the catwalk are such pieces of art that even if I had the funds-where would I wear them?

I feel that way about a lot of the make-up as well. I love Nadja Auermman as much as the next modelizer. I just gazed at a picture of her wearing a mohawk looking ponytail with crazy dramatic eye-makeup and I thought “Hmm, I wonder if this would work in real life?” As luck would have it I had an industry event to go to last night. I also wasn’t having the best hair day. I thought what better time to experiment and see how the mohawk ponytail translates to real life. I thought I’d throw super dramatic eyes in just to try to mimic the look.

How’d it go? Well, I opened the front door and hopped into Megken’s car.

Megken: Your makeup looks really good, your hair looks like Grace Jones or something though.

So 1 Point Makeup 0 on hair. The event was not an entertainment event but a technology one so there wasn’t exactly a lot of “boundary pushing looks going on” or any actually.

My verdict? It was fun and I might do the look again for real life instead of just “experiment.” I got a few looks and a woman in the ladiesroom said she “loved it,”so there’s that.

Here is what I used…
Face: Classified Cosmetics Aero Minerale Spray for my foundation. I then added Benefit’s Georgia Peach as a powder.
Eyes: Alexander De Markoff Disquise For Eyes Primer, Cat Cosmetics Hello Gorgeous brownson my lids. Urban Decay Eyelash Primer, Thebalm’s Two-Timer Mascara, Urban Decay Ink For Eyes in “Zero”
I also threw in a couple individual false pieces on the outer lid for some extra drama and pop!
Lips: Liptini stain in “Cassis”
Hair: Took me 5 minutes flat. I just teased the front and sprayed the heck out of it! Then I gathered the rest and ponytailed it.
SIMPLE TO PULL OFF!!

It was definitely simple to pull off but what do you think? Ridiculous? Way out there? Would you give it a shot?

How closely do you follow the images in the mags? Its fun to play with it but do you ever leave the house trying to mimic the models looks?
