Oh, Showgirls. That tasty nugget of 90’s sap whose scrappy, magnificently endowed heroine danced her way through Vegas sleaze. With more catfights than your local Delta Gamma chapter and spectacular hairpieces that Lady Gaga would envy, Showgirls can give even the worst days a little kick. The blond jheri curl, the sequins, the girl-on-girl… Showgirls is truly one for the ages.
Nomi Malone’s style is equal parts cleavage and ass-kicking, with a healthy dose of snakeskin. To cop the same attitude, a good (or cheap) eyebrow pencil and a frosted red lip are indispensable. Pearlescent red lips are not for the faint of heart, but getting up the balls to slick on a deep blood red can really perk you up on a gloomy day. Take it from me, it is nearly impossible to feel sorry for yourself when every man you meet is staring smack at your perfectly painted kisser. A list of my favorite feel-good lipcolors will no doubt appear in a later post. My personal pick for an easy opaque red lip is Maybelline’s new color sensational line. They’re creamy, moisturizing, and easy to build. Add an embellished mesh teddy, some poison green nails, and get to work on that center split. From shrinking violet to showgirl in three easy steps.
