Music Inspired Makeup: Aladdin Sane

Finally, the second edition of Music Inspired Makeup is here! I've been so excited to do this one so I hope you guys like it, this time I'm attempting an album as opposed to a song in particular like before!

(On a side note, does anyone recognise any of the CDs in the banner above?)

David Bowie - Aladdin Sane

Unquestionably the most iconic album cover from David Bowie's illustrious discography, Aladdin Sane has been recreated by many, from Lady Gaga to me on my 19th birthday.

Plus it looks amazing in a tattoo! (photo from Google Images)

But this time I didn't want to go overboard with the makeup, although most of you will think this isn't wearable, I wore this out on the dog walk today, bumped into numerous locals and not one stared! Success!

David Bowie is nothing if not an innovator, a rebel and an icon.
It's no secret I wasn't alive to witness the greatness of Bowie's career prime, and while that makes it hard to relate to the emotions surrounding this iconic album at the time of its conception, it's fair to say I've been overwhelmingly influenced by it throughout my journey as an amateur face painter.

The cover of Aladdin Sane, to me, speaks the words that most of us can't say.
I'm different. I'm not asking for attention. I'm just not like the rest of you.
To some extent that's what the entirety of Bowie's career has meant to me, a medium to translate to others that I'm not normal, I'm just that little bit unusual and I love being that way.

Products Used:
MUA Eye Primer
Barry M Kohl Pencil in Red
Collection 2000 Gel Liner in Black
Barry M Dazzle Dust shade 22
Maybelline Falsies mascara

Having looked a bit closer, I've noticed how much this looks like a Pokeball pattern. Maybe that's an idea for a future EOTD?
