American Idol Beauty
Paula Abdul: Paula completely reinvents her hair every week, to the extent that it's almost unrecognizable. She must have the largest collection of faux hair this side of Dolly Parton. This week it was browner and sleeker, with sideswept bags and what appeared to be a fake ponytail. Not bad. Her outfit was also uncharacteristically sedate, with a puff sleeve black blouse. As usual, though, she piled on the jewelry.
Lakisha Jones: Great dress. Love the colors and the print, especially with the boots. It just worked, and it flattered her figure. Her hair also looked amazing, but I'm not sure about the makeup. I liked the eyes, but I felt like she could use some more color on her cheeks, and I wasn't wild about the lip color, which was a glossy brown with some orange in it.
Gina Glocksen: Not sure about her hair again this week. It was very choppy and shaggy and there were tufts of it sticking up in the back, but that may be the look she's going for. I also did not like the orange swipes of eyeshadow, though the lipstick and blush were very pretty. I love that she stays true to her rocker girl image, and the bottom half of her outfit worked, with the fishnets, the mini and the fabulous boots. But I didn't get the top at all! It was too tight and ill-fitting, and it just didn't go with the rest of the rebel look she was going for.
Haley Scarnato: Love the great black minidress, the necklaces, and the amazing black stilettos. Her makeup was also beautiful, as always, with glowing rosy blush and sheer pink gloss, as well as the eye makeup. She used some white liner on the inner rims, and a bronzey glittery shadow that made her eyes sparkle. The one thing I didn't like was her hair. It was so 80s, and the front and the back had failed to communicate with each other. In the front, her bangs were straight, then from the crown backwards it was curled and poufy. Like two different hairstyles. Very strange!
Melinda Doolittle: Love her. Don't love the outfit. She is too busty to wear a crew neck top. A scoop neck or v-neck would have broken up the expanse of her fabric, and made her look more in proportion. Especially the fact that it was sleeveless - just the wrong style for her. I did like that it was belted, and the leggings showed off her legs. Also not sure about the eyeshadow, which was blue to match the Pucci-esque print on her tunic. But I did love the pretty berry cheeks and lips, and the cute flippy hairstyle.
Jordin Sparks: Loved her outfit! Loved the little red and grey checked hoodie, flippy gray skirt and matching tall boots. Really fresh and youthful and perfect for her. I also loved the great sleek ponytail and huge hoops. Her makeup was also lovely, with silvery grey eyeshadow and glossy red lips. Beautiful!
