Ziggy Stardust Make-up Tutorial
Our little dedication to one of the most influential musicians of all time, David Bowie. Like no other this master of transformation left an indelible mark on pop music, inscribing himself with his artful personas in the iconography of the 20th century. More than Major Tom or Thin White Duke, Ziggy Stardust has a special place in the collective memory. This homemade Ziggy Stardust make-up tutorial is our way of paying homage to the glam rock icon. Here we show you how to transform yourself into David Bowie’s alter ego. Look just like him on his 1973 record, Aladdin Sane.
The lightning bolt across the right side of the face is so distinctive it would be enough to make you look like Ziggy Stardust. If this make-up tutorial is too elaborate for you, feel free to leave out a couple of the intermediate steps. If you want a professional-quality David Bowie look, it’s all right here! Ziggy Stardust á la record cover, complete with rock star wig and matching glam rock outfit!
Here we go!

Preparing the Wig
