A closer look: Sophie Ellis-Bextor's acid green sparkly lids


When we saw the photos of British singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor‘s performance last month at London hotspot G-A-Y, we knew we had to feature her bold makeup. As crazy as acid green glittery liquid eyeshadow sounds, we actually think this look really works.
Sophie’s skin is so flawless, it’s a perfect canvas to do something daring. She’s also pulling the colors directly from her print dress so it’s not so random. Unless you’re a performer, we suggest going with just one of these trends — either a daring eye or a bright lip. And if you are brave enough to go for that eye, back it up with faux lashes that stand up to the bright lids.
We like Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Liner ($18 at sephora.com). The description says it all: “Play it soft by painting on precise, crystalline lines with the top of the thin brush. Or wear it loud by sweeping the side of the brush to create entirely jewel-encrusted eye looks.”
