There were a lot of show-stopping moments during Lady Gaga's performance at the Super Bowl 51 Halftime Show on Sunday night. The woman literally jumped off the top of the football stadium, did some flips while suspended mid-air, and managed not to sound winded after dancing her ass off for nearly 15 minutes straight. However, audiences seem to be most impressed with the blazingly fast eye makeup change Lady Gaga pulled off mid-performance.
At the beginning of her epic performance, Lady Gaga's eyes were adorned with tons of tiny rhinestones, intricately placed to make her look like a fabulous, sparkly superhero or perhaps a bedazzled raccoon.
But suddenly, right before Gaga sat down at the piano to play her new song "Million Reasons," the makeup was mysteriously gone. BUT WHERE DID IT GO?
Many performers opt for a mid-performance costume change, but Lady Gaga pulled off the elusive hair and makeup change without batting a false eyelash. We are impressed.
Okay, there are only three explanations for this makeup sorcery: 1) The rhinestones were applied in once piece via an adhesive that she managed to discretely peel off during the performance. 2) An army of makeup artists with makeup wipes attacked her face when the cameras were focused on her backup dancers. 3) She is a literal wizard.
Even if the makeup was just a fancy shmancy sticker, we are very impressed that the second look was just as flawless as the first.
