First of all, I love Shirley Manson. She's gorgeous, talented, bold, outspoken, and generally looks like she stayed up too late, woke up too late, put her makeup on in a dimly lit hotel room, and then left for a gig with a cigarette in hand. She always stays true to her rocker style, and I love that about her.
This is my interpretation of Shirley Manson's signature look:
I basically completed my foundation routine, tweezed and colored brows. Then primed my lids with UDPP and used Nyx Jumbo pencil in Black Bean messily on the lid. Then applied a deep black shadow on top and kind of created a crease shape. For a rocker-chick, I don't want too much precision. Then I used the Jumbo pencil on the lower lid and waterline. I roughed that up a bit also with black shadow. I used Ardell lashes in 120's. Shirley isn't very big on big lashes, so I just used a natural pair. Then I applied a pink blush to the hollows of my cheeks, and then blended a couple of red lipsticks together to get the right shade. Blot. DONE.
For me, as a perfectionist, I will just say that although messy makeup is totally fun, IT STRESSED ME OUT!!! LOL!! I think it turned out pretty good, and I hope that Shirley is honored by my devotion and effort, and knows that I'm eagerly awaiting Garbage's next album.... :-)
For your enjoyment, here is one of my most favorite Garbage songs in the history of the world, and Shirley looking 100% not anything at all like the makeup I did. Awesome.
