EXCLUSIVE: The Inside Dish on Miley Cyrus's 'Can't Be Tamed' Look

Updated

Miley Cyrus is literally shedding her good girl image in the steamy new video for her single “Can’t Be Tamed.” Donning a sexy set of wings and a $25,000 metal corset custom-made by The Blonds, a caged Miley readily takes on the role of a rare bird. Celebrity makeup artist Denika Bedrossian, who created the starlet’s wild look, tells PEOPLE exclusively, “Our inspiration for the video was exotic endangered birds breaking out of their cages; lots of sexy, dark, exotic feathers.” To achieve Miley’s untamed look, Bedrossian focused on the eyes, applying rich jewel-toned shadows. “I used a lot of emerald green, turquoise and black to create a deep peacock eye,” says Bedrossian, who used vivid eye color from MAC and The Balm to stand out against Miley’s fair skin. And to add extra dimension to Miley’s eyes, Bedrossian applied lashes with real feather tips for an authentic bird-like feel. Though Miley’s new look is more grown-up than we are used to, Bedrossian tells us that the songstress helped conceptualize the dramatic change. “We all collaborated together to create a gothic, edgy, yet feminine bird. She wanted to be a part of every detail.” Watch Miley’s “Can’t Be Tamed” video here. Tell us: What do you think of her exotic video look?Andrea DeSimone
