Would You Take Makeup Tips from Courtney Love?

Who better to dispense makeup advice than someone who’s gone from grunge to glam and back again? So goes the presumed logic behind Courtney Love’s role as a newly-minted online beauty expert. The always-entertaining star, who recently treated her Twitter followers to a five-part series of homemade makeup how-tos via TwitVid, shot an online beauty tutorial for Nylon, in which she preps for a night out with her pal Michael Stipe of R.E.M. Just as riveting for Love’s free-associating (and expletive-laced) commentary as it is for actually useful advice on how to apply eyeliner, the lively segment follows the singer’s transformation from bare-faced to dramatically done up with dramatic false lashes, lavender eyeshadow, diamond dust, rhinestones — the works! — a look inspired by everything from Gretchen Ryan paintings to Ziegfield girls. While you may not wind up cribbing many of her beauty tips on your next girls-night-out, Love, who performed with Hole at SXSW in Austin this past weekend, is definitely worth watching for her sheer unedited (and we mean unedited!) self.
