This week our very own website editor, Bianca London goes up against makeup artist Gary Thompson AKA theplasticboy.
Friday Face Off is the weekly makeup challenge at GLAMOUR HQ where beauty editors, beauty enthusiasts and some very special guests recreate a makeup look in only 5 minutes.
The look this week comes from makeup artist Amanda Nash. It’s a pop art dream and involved a lot, I mean a lot of polka dots.
Watch this week’s episode of #fridayfaceoff below or on GLAMOUR’s Youtube channel and have your say on who’s recreation you prefer, or better yet, share your own recreations of the pop art white polka dot look with #fridayfaceoff
Both Bianca and Gary start off with the white polka dots although varying in thickness. Gary goes for more of a smaller dot, whereas Bianca sticks more to the pop art image with applying larger dots.
Gary works more on the eyes, adding a white eyeliner to the lower lash line. On the other hand, Bianca skips this detail and focuses more on that bold red lipstick. Onto the finishing touches, Bianca speedily, yet quite accurately draws on the graphic lines to complete the pop art style framing of the face. Gary goes in defining the eyebrows and drawing on the black graphic liner smoothly.
Things get messy with the fake eyelashes, as Bianca applies the glue in copious amounts. In what seems like an attempt to distract from the lashes, she adds to the white polka dots. Gary more delicately applies the glue and lashes.
