I do appreciate a good stained glass window. As a child and teenager, when taken to church, instead of listening to the priest I would spend my time glancing around the cavernous room taking in the architecture, marvelling at the works of art, and gazing trance-like at the beautiful stained glass windows, that when the sun came through, threw dappled rainbow lights across the floor. So, as you can imagine, when I got wind of this latest makeup trend I was intrigued.
Stained glass may not be blowing up the interwebs, but it is infusing it with some gorgeous works of art. Take the look James Charles created. The lips are bold, beautiful, interesting - although perhaps not completely wearable (well, for me, but then I'm conservative when it comes to applying makeup). However, that liner/cut crease? I can see this being worn by those with less wrinkled lids. It's to die for.
Stained glass creations aren't relegated solely to the face either, one can get creative and see that stained glass spill over one's body. Which could make for a fun look for a dress up party. Or even a Halloween event. Speaking of which... get a load of this...
Isn't this look from Brierley Thorpe amazing? It reminds me of an evil ice queen who will steal away those you love most, who will attempt to off you with razor sharp fingernails made from icicles, who will show no mercy, and when finally stopped won't blink an eye as she's stopped once and for all. (Yes, I'm currently writing Halloween articles, talking to the little human about what she wants to be this Halloween and am basically living in a world of scary things. How I love my job!).
Stained glass makeup artistry - perhaps not the most commercial look out, but like all the great works it's something we can take the time to appreciate.
So do tell... are you a fan of the stained glass trend? Is it something you'd try yourself? Or is it a pass for you?
