Glow in the Dark Makeup Like Kesha 2010-04-19 13:00:11

Is Black Light Makeup the Next Big Thing?

If you saw Ke$ha's performance of "Your Love Is my Drug" on SNL over the weekend, you know what I'm talking about. Glow-in-the-dark makeup has been showing up all over: the Black Eyed Peas wear it in their "I Gotta Feeling" video, Australian singer Sia has been known to use it in performances, and a new DKNY 20th anniversary video features a model dancing around in it.

Black light was huge back in the '80s, and in fashion, everything old eventually becomes new again. If I were going out, I think I'd definitely wear Ke$ha's red lipstick—it would look cool and it's pretty wearable. There's also black light eye shadow, temporary hair color, and nail polish. So what do you think? Is this a trend you'll be trying, or do you think it should stay back in 1984 with frizz perms and single earrings?

We're recycling an old trend. I think I prefer temporary tattoos.

I'd do this for a party, maybe. But the thing is, I'm just not very excited about doing something I have seen photos of my parents doing.

Maybe if I'm headed to a rave. I had glow in the dark nail polish when I was a kid (ok, I still have it), but who really cares what your nails look like in the dark?

Not to crazy about it. I like it in moderation. It reminds me of the Tron fashions. As for Ke$ha... talk about getting it wrong. I like it when it looks futuristic no canabalistic.

i wouldn't participate in a trend that already happened in my lifetime, but more power to you if you are young and hip and want to relive your parents life ;)
