5678 Declares: Most Iconic Music Video Makeup Looks on Stars
8. Katy Perry – E.T. music video

Katy Perry’s eyecatching makeup in the music video for her song ‘E.T.’ was nothing short of loud, artistic and boundary- pushing.

The music video featured three different looks inspired by three different themes: tribal, fawn, and alien.

Many viewers praised the makeup look and many even recreated it.

The makeup artist for this look was Kabuki . He has worked with many female singers before such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson.

7. Lady Gaga – Applause music video

Probably one of Gaga’s most iconic of her recent makeup looks is the smudged paint in the ‘Applause’ music video. Despite only appearing in the video for a few seconds, it is one of the most replayed segments of the video on YouTube, and is the most recognisable look from the many seen in this music video,

The mind behind the avant-garde makeup look is Yadim Carranza. He was also worked with iconic names such as Rihanna, Charli XCX and even Kim Kardashian.

6. Mel B – Say You’ll Be There music video

Mel B’s iconic silver eyeshadow look for the Spice Girls’ ‘Say You’ll Be There’ music video served robotic metallic realness and was an iconic 90s look.

Unfortunately, it was never revealed who the makeup was done by was never revealed, nor what eyeshadow was used. However, that didn’t stop fans from reacreating the look for themselves.

5. Christina Aguilera – Dirrty music video

The bleach blonde and black hair, the smokey and tightlined eye, the pencil thin brows? Nothing short of an iconic look for an iconic song.

4. Madonna – Material Girl music video

This music video features a look inspired by Marilyn Monroe’s iconic look in ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’.

The hair and makeup is simple, but classy and flattering – from the red lips, to the cat eye eyeliner, to the hollywood curls.

3. Rihanna – S&M music video

This music video features Rihanna’s iconic vibrant red hair that she had for most of 2010, as well as load pops of colour on her cheeks, lips and eyes.

2. Ariana Grande – Positions

Ariana Grande’s ‘Positions’ era looks were a well- executed homage to 60s hair, makeup and fashion. The voluminous hair, bold eye makeup and the colourful and big earrings.

She rocks this look in both the album cover and the music video for ‘Positions’. Many fans took to recreate this look featuring a cut crease, big lashes and side swept bangs.

1. Lady Gaga – Telephone music video

One of my favourite celebrity beauty looks of all time is Lady Gaga’s Diet Coke can rollers from the music video for her collab with Beyonce, ‘Telephone’.

The music video alone is full of many iconic looks, but this definitely a fan favourite, having been replicated several times as a Halloween costume.

The hairstylist behind this look is Danilo Dixon. Famous for his work on Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Gwen Stefani, his looks are nothing short of big and bold.
