RAH RAH AH AH AH: Monster Ball Starring Lady Gaga

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Lady Gaga. She's my favorite female artist of ALL-TIME! So I was just super excited to be able to snag tickets to her concert last Wednesday at the Staples Center six months before the actual concert (both LA shows sold out within minutes). If you are a true fan of her... you must see her live! It doesn't even matter where you sit really, it's about the experience of being there. I've been to a few concerts, and there's nothing quite like her show. It was the best one I've ever been to. Hands down. Besides her awesome, hair raising vocals, there's nothing is remotely close to how awesome her whole concert production was. Her costumes, props, and videos, nothing short from my expectations. In fact, it has blown me away. She really put on a show.

After leaving the concert, I was just still so amped from all the energy. She was also very, very inspiring which made me appreciate and love her as an artist even more. It was just a big party inside Staples Center. Lady Gaga knows how to get the crowd riled up!

Here are some pictures from the concert. You know I had to dress up for it. Yes, I wore a leotard. But no, I was wearing shorts walking in Staples Center. I wasn't about to parade around the LA streets pant-less.

But the atmosphere inside Staples Center was just amazing. There were plenty of us who dressed up specifically for the concert. So many awesome costumes!

And this is my little number. Too bad, it looks something more like a "Single Ladies" video costume. I had to work with what I had already. Surprisingly, wearing a leotard was pretty liberating. I hope one day we'll all be free to wear pant-less outfits (ok just a little).

And can't leave without a makeup picture. I wish I took a proper one after I finished doing my makeup, but we were already running late for the concert and I had little time to get ready after work. When you think of Gaga, you just have to go bold and dark.

Plus 10 points for the Asian pose! Yes, Mr. J went to the concert with me. He was totally against going, but I managed to convince him to go with me :). BUT, he really liked and enjoyed the show after seeing it!


On my face:

Foundation: Makeup Forever Duo Mat in 203
Eyes: Prime with Urban Decay Primer Potion and MAC Soft Ochre paint pot. For a dark base, use MAC Blacktrack on your lash line and dragging it out to your outer crease and crease. Using a blending brush, use black eyeshadow (MAC Typographic e/s) to set the black base and to soften the edges. Blend, blend, blend the crease part for any harsh lines as you "cut the crease". Using a white cream base (NYX Jumbo Pencil in Cottage Cheese), apply the base color in your lid area. Set the base by patting it down your eyelids. Apply a silvery or white eyeshadow on top of the white base. Line your lashline with a gel liner. Apply mascara and use false lashes (Ms. Adoro i#15). Line your waterline with a black kohl liner (Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes in 0L).
Cheeks: Use a shimmery pink blush on the apples of your cheeks (MAC True Romantic)
Lips: Kiehl's Lip Balm for your natural lip color.

PAWS UP!
