Love That Lasts
Two years after they met, David Bowie and Iman vowed to spend the rest of their days together in 1992. “My attraction to her was immediate and all-encompassing. I couldn’t sleep for the excitement of our first date. That she would be my wife, in my head, was a done deal,” said Bowie.
Beauty Tip: Play up your look with colorful eyes. A red winged shadow in red suits warmer skin tones, while artful blotches of blue and yellow suit fairer skin. Make it wearable and use sparingly

David Bowie is Just A Persona
“I did not fall in love with David Bowie. Bowie is just a persona. He’s a singer, an entertainer. David Jones is a man I met,” once said Iman in interview with The Independent in 2014. David Bowie, who is among the most influential musicians of all time, was known for his extraordinary artistry and brilliant style.
Beauty Tip: Feeling daring? Make a lip statement and paint the center of lips a rich plum shade. Smudge outwards with a lip brush and leave the outer corners uncolored
Rock N’ Roll Romance
“You would think that a rock star being married to a supermodel would be one of the greatest things in the world. It is.” Bowie and Iman who wed in Tuscany kept their romance burning for 23 years.
Beauty Tip: They say eyes are the windows to one’s soul. Intensify your gaze with a reverse cat-eye or lush doll-like lashes, using shorter-lengthed false eyelashes on your lower lash line

David Bowie played a very strong part in shaping the world’s musical history. His many admirers include music heavyweights, like Iggy Pop and Madonna who said, “I found him so inspiring and innovative. Unique and provocative. A real genius.”
Beauty Tip: Color your world with rosy shades of pink and fuchsia. Wear on cheeks or lips, or both when you’re feeling bold
Each Tear is a Poet, a Healer, a Teacher
Iman posted this quote on her social media days after her family lost David Bowie to an 18-month long battle with cancer. The artist, who wrote songs until his death, was a true work of art. His last album Blackstar is thought to be his parting gift to the world.
Beauty Tip: A warm wash of burnt reds looks pretty when done the right way. Want Bowie-inspired makeup you say? Experiment with pigments of bright red and blue, and wear them your way
