Beth Ditto boasts 'abstract' style

Beth Ditto's make-up artist advises thinking "abstract" if you want to achieve the singer's beauty look.

The Gossip star is famed for her audacious dress sense and bold make-up. Val Garland creates Beth's most daring looks and says people should think outside of the box if they want to follow in her footsteps.

"Think abstract, like a morph between Sixties models Peggy Moffitt and Veruschka," she told the UK version of InStyle magazine.

Beth sported an outlandish aesthetic for her shoot with the fashion publication, which included painted polka-dots on her face.

Val has explained how she achieved the head-turning look.

"Beth loves fierce black eyeliner, so I traced a graphic line around her eye and pressed black shadow over the top," she explained.

She then added that foundation was applied with a wet sponge for "thicker coverage", followed by "lots" of black mascara and pink lipstick.

"To finish, I hand-painted blue polka-dots all over her face," she said.

Beth also added her own signature quirky touch to the look. The singer drew an eye on the back of her hand with black eyeliner.
