Miley Cyrus is hitting the stage at tonight’s iHeartRadio Music Festival — and in what might just be one of her most dramatic eye makeup looks ever. We know because, true to form, the “Midnight Sky” singer gave fans a sneak peek of her look for the event, and it features iridescent purple glitter all the way up to her brow bone.
Of course, the vocalist’s purple eye look in the “Midnight Sky” music video was super-bold and sparkly, but there’s just something about this one that oozes drama from every angle. (In the very best way, obviously.) Iit’s worth noting that Cyrus’s makeup artist Janice Daoud shared a photo of the look on Instagram, too, and appears to be calling it “Glam rock 💎,” which is a pretty spot-on description.
The eyes are both edgy and ethereal, thanks to the mesmerizing purple glitter, which has a dark shift to it for a moody effect (zoom in to see what we mean), and several coats of inky black mascara on both her top and bottom lashes. Daoud also placed black eyeliner on the star’s bottom waterline to add even more drama and definition.
While typically makeup artists tend to leave the brow bone bare or subtly highlighted, Daoud went out of the box with this look and covered the area in chunky glitter. And well, honestly? It has us wanting to try the look for ourselves, ASAP.
OK, it might not be one we recreate on a random weekday, but then again, Halloween is right around the corner and could be the perfect excuse to give it a go. Now, if we could only figure out where to get that bodysuit.
