The Makeup Show NYC Contest: Sound and Vision

DavidBowie_illustrationDavid Bowie was an artist, a visionary, a vanguard, a Rock star, and of course style icon. There’s no doubt that this actor, producer, musician and man of many faces made many chi-chi-changes in terms of his image over the years. His constantly morphing persona led the way for the likes of Madonna and Lady Gaga to name only a few and his influence can be felt everywhere. Known as a musical chameleon for his ever-changing appearance, sound and vision, known for dramatic musical transformations, including characters like Ziggy Stardust and The Think White Duke, David Bowie dared to push boundaries in beauty, fashion and music. The rock star’s outlandish looks drew plenty of attention over the last 40 years and as Annie Lennox said in her tribute he will continue to influence as long as the Earth is spinning.  In this contest we would like to explore the ever-changing face and style of Davis Bowie as Bowie was a big believer in carving out your own identity, no matter what that might be.
