26 Unconventional Makeup Looks

From Glitterized Mermaid Faces to Sloppy Cosmetics

— June 3, 2010 — Fashion
If you think lips, mouth, and eyes are the go-to body parts for makeup, this cluster of sloppy cosmetics and unconventional makeup looks will have you think again.

This cluster is filled with unusual cosmetics applications, from Boy George runway makeup to glitter facials to wild feather eyebrows and chocolate sauce foundation. It's time to get creative with your cosmetic routine. Soon, run-of-the-mill mascara, lipstick and blush will be a thing of the past.

Implications - The revival of 1970s-influenced glam makeup has influenced celebrities and consumers to create more drastic and experimental looks. The popularity of artists like Lady Gaga has proven that the rules of fashion and design can be broken and that customers desire edgy and alternative styles that stand out.
