Madonna's Makeup at RocknRolla Premiere

How-To: Madonna's Wide-Eyed, Winged Makeup

At last night's premiere of her husband's new film, RocknRolla, I was mesmerized by Madonna's wide-eyed, winged eye makeup. It's not an everyday look, but it really amped up M's style. To learn how to do the multitalented songstress's makeup, check out my instructions below:

  • FACE Start off with a foundation with semimatte coverage (such as Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation [$9.49]). To add instant radiance, use a highlighter to accentuate the under-eye area, forehead, and nose with Benefit's High Beam ($24).
  • CHEEKS Next, add a peachy accent with Urban Decay's Afterglow Blush in Score ($17) to the apples of the cheeks and around the hairline. Add a slight dusting over your jawline and chin to blend.

For the rest of the tutorial,


  • EYES Create a light pinky peach shimmer on your lids by applying Stila's Eye Shadow Pan in Starlight ($18). Next, swipe a bronze shade in the outer crease for depth — Stila's Eye Shadow Pan in Twig ($18) will provide a shimmering earthen brown. For the dramatic winged liner, I like Clinique's Quickliner for Eyes in Really Black ($14.50), as it's easy to control and blend. Start from the top lashline moving from inner corner to outer corner, extending straight out beyond the outer corner. Go back over the the outer lashline again to make a heavier line, using the picture above for reference. Apply the same method for the lower lashline, eliminating the retracing step. Lightly blend any uneven edges and set with a black eyeshadow such as Smashbox's Single Eye Shadow in Blackout $16. Check out my tutorial for false lashes and add thickening mascara to complete the dramatic look.
  • LIPS For a dramatic high shine, try a coral gloss like Vincent Longo's Perfect Shine Lip Gloss in Fioresh ($22).

I like the rest of the look but they eyes are weird. It's fine until you get the the winged part. It really draws attention to her crows feet too.

Agreed that this is way too over the top. I don't even think it's an age thing. I couldn't imagine anyone getting away with this look unless you're Ru Paul. She's such a beautiful woman, but as of lately, I just feel like she takes everything a little too far (won't lie, her arms scare me).

cool eyes, but maybe not for her? close ups are rarely forgiving though

Who would want to replicate this look? From the scary eyes to the smudged lipstick, is a no-no for me.

I agree that I think the look isn't all that flattering. Plus, I think it'd be difficult for anyone but Madonna to pull it off.

Yeah, I echo everyone else's thoughts. Why would someone want to look like that? I think if someone else were to try this look like that on girl from "That 70's Show" and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" that it'd look really hot. But not someone goin on 50 years old... she needs something a lot more muted.

I only like the eyelashes. The rest of her is so, so, I don't know what to call it.

Lucy, eventually they all start looking alike. If you have enough plastic surgery you end up with that same face. All she needs now is fish lips and she'll have it.

Good lord, that looks like a mask.

If she was trying to draw more attention to her bloodshot eyes and yellow teeth she succeeded. I hate Madonna.

She's beginning to resemble Donatella Versace.

It really makes me wonder when so many Hollywood women are trying so hard to look younger when in actual fact they just look awful. Over-exercise and too much botox obviously doesn't equal youth.

I am just jealous of her money. Now that is attractive. I am so glad I don't have money to screw up my face.

I saw another shot of Madonna on this particular night, and from far away it's ok. Up close -- yikes! Unless she's headed to a midnight showing of "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert," this is too much.

I feel bad for saying this, but why would I want to recreate that look? She looks awful.
