Glam Rock Makeup
Adam Lambert's bringing glam rock back—heavy eyeliner and all. Take your makeup inspiration from brazen glam rockers (also known as “glitter rockers”) of the past by wearing glitter—a light dusting on your lids of cheekbones makes this 80s stage look more wearable in real life.  For a more extreme look, dust it onto your lids, lashline and cheekbones. You can use scotch tape to remove excess flecks that fall down under your eyes or onto your chest. Try on glam rock makeup in our virtual makeover studio or create the look with a little lipstick, powder and paint with these tips.

Glossy eyelids are totally glam rock. To get the look, apply clear gloss or lip balm over your favorite eye shadow to really give the color a slick kick. For an edgy effect that’s not too hardened, try red liquid liner applied from inner to outer corners of the eye in a thick, winged line. Bronze or gold liner is a softer alternative to black and gives a cool, shiny penny effect (try gold on your lips as well).

If you’re feeling daring, rock two-toned lips with red on the top and hot pink on the bottom. You can subdue the look by applying a shimmery gold eye or silver shadow to the center of the top and bottom lips for a glossy effect without the stickiness. This trick echoes the two-toned trend without overpowering your face and appears to plump your lips.

Dark glitter polish puts the finishing touch on your funky-glam rock look. Wear it with an armful of cuffs or a couple of chunky rings. --Stephanie Simons

i'm totally enamored with the glossy lids look, and tried it once--but it just isn't wearable at all. It feels super sticky and tacky...and your eye makeup will just settle into your lid crease after a few hours :( This comment has been removed.
