Lady Gaga always has luscious lips and you can too. I have listed instructions for casual Gaga style and a bold Gaga style.

Casual style

You will need

Lip liner

A pale pink or nude color lipstick

Clear or shimmer gloss

  • The first step is to line your lips with the lip liner.
  • Next you will want to fill in your lips with your lipstick.
  • Go over your lips lightly with the gloss or shimmer.

This lip style is beautiful and Gaga but casual enough for day wear.

Bold lips Gaga style

What you will need

Bright red lipstick

Lip liner a couple shades darker than your lipstick

  • First line lips with the liner
  • Next apply the lipstick

This style is really simple and really stands out. The only down side is that with bright colors it is difficult to correct mistakes so go slowly. You can dress this up by drawing on a little monroe for a fun.

Extra flare

Lady Gaga is all about trying bold new looks. She has sported many different styles like lightening bolts and lace. Here are a few pics for inspiration.My personal favorite is the anime eyes. She also as lots of accessories to pair with her different looks. Sparkles, bangles the more eyecatching the better.
