Oct 24, 2016 >> Get the Look: Boy George [VIDEO]
As if we needed an excuse to play dress up, we’re welcoming another spooktacular Glossed & Found Halloween edition! And this year we’re making it a throwback to the oh so colorful era of the ‘80s. We enlisted the help of our favorite makeup artist and fellow Halloween-enthusiast SHANNON O’BRIEN, teaching us not what makes a man, but what makes a boy—Boy George that is! Inspired by the brightly beated visage of the English singer, including those idiosyncratic brows and rainbow lids, Shannon takes a step-by-step to create this colorful tribute to the ‘80s legend.
Don’t forget your perfectly placed bowler and about a dozen hair wraps to complete this androgynous look. Oh, and a quick trip to the thrift store will reveal ‘80s patterned shirts aplenty. Just remember that more is more in creating this ‘80s punk pop style!

We asked Shannon to create a beauty arsenal of the super pigmented hues that really embody the Boy George look. These pieces are perfect for recreating this super fun Halloween costume, but can also be used any day of the year. To create a cleaner beauty look think less is more, and create a singular brightly colored focal point for a real statement.
A. PAT MCGRATH LUST 004 in BLOOD
Mother Pat McGrath can do no wrong. I don’t get excited about many product launches, but I bought every piece of this collection. The intense red shade is perfect for this look and gives a nod to the art of makeup.
B. MAC CHROMOGRAPHIC PENCILS
If brushes aren’t your thing, a pencil can be a much easier way to get graphic.
C. CONFETTI SPONGES
Easy hack to clean up messes. Use wedge sponges to create clean lines.
D. MAKE UP FOR EVER FLASH COLOR PALETTE
One stop shopping for any artistic work you want to do. Whatever you don’t find in this palette you can custom blend.
E. NARS DUAL INTENSITY BLUSH in PANIC
Love the texture of this blush. It’s like adding a pearl finish to your skin. Perfect for that severe & ombre contour.
F. YSL VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS MASCARA in EXTREME BLUE
When paired with all these other products it just adds another splash of color, but this can be a real statement product when worn with a cleaner beauty look, too.
G. MAC SELECT LIP X6 PALETTE
Use multiple shades to create a gradient lip, or blend a color you love.
