While the big show is full of suspense, excitement, drama, and emotion, we would be remiss if we didn’t admit our love for the spectacular that is the Halftime show.
In the last decade or so, there have been some standout performances from some of our favourite pop artists. Here, we’ll count down our top 5 beauty moments from Super Bowl’s past, in preparation of Katy Perry’s surely showstopping performance on Sunday.
I mean…it’s Prince! It literally rains purple around him. Ok, maybe not purple, but it did rain. And is that guyliner we spy?
4. Gwen Stefani-2003
While Gwen Stefani has had many looks since No Doubt (pink hair, blue hair, bindi, braces) one thing always remains-her timeless black liner/red lip combo, and a crimson mani. We love that she was ‘Just A Girl’ with the boys at the Super Bowl, giving our forever 13-year-old hearts something to cheer for.
3. Janet Jackson-2004
Let’s face it-her brother Michael may have been the King of Pop, but Janet has always been the fiercest Jackson around. Surrounded by backup dancers in graphic liner and major contouring, Janet’s ultra cool, rosie-bronze makeup was the hottest come-hither look of 2004. That is, until it was over-shadowed by Nipplegate.
2. Britney Spears-2001
Oh Britney. 2001 was your year. Slave was a hit, Justin was your boo, and let’s face it-your bod was bangin’. Mix that with enviable blond hair and ‘Girl Next Door does Rocker Chic’ makeup, and there you will find our favourite Britney.
Say heyyyyyyy Ms. Carter! Beyonce has been our spirit animal since her ‘Crazy In Love’ days, and we were thrilled that her performance was at once a greatest hits collaboration and a Destiny’s Child reunion. In true Queen B fashion, she took the stage looking flawless as ever with her signature long curly locks, and a stand-out smoky eye. But the real show-stopper was her gold manicure, highlighted by leather fingerless gloves. Definitely some hand adornment we can get behind.
