View From the Beauty Closet: David Bowie’s Sick Makeup Skills

David Bowie Makeup Sketch.jpg

Backstage at fashion week, makeup artists use face charts to show their teams how to execute the look they’ve created. Well, it appears David Bowie used a similar method for his concerts. This is his own drawing, detailing one of his colorful Glam Rock–era makeup looks. My friend, London-based makeup artist Georgina Graham, spotted the sketch at the David Bowie Is exhibition currently showing at the Victoria & Albert Museum and sent it to me with the note, “What a man!” What a man indeed—just look at his contouring skills!

Beauty never sleeps, so neither do we. Keep up with Allure 24/7 on Instagram.
