Think Harry Brant is the only makeup-minded male? Well, Yoko Ono doesn’t agree. Just check out her video with Opening Ceremony, entitled “Make-Up Tips For Men.” Below, we’ve provided our own translations of the video's text. (Alas, we have no translation for the images. Feel free to provide those yourselves.)
Daytime make up:
“When you see a rainbow in the sky.
Breath it in
And make your room into a rainbow room.
Rainbow computer, rainbow phone.
Rainbow apple, banana and pear
Wear rainbow glasses, rainbow hat
Start thinking what else be rainbows.
Rainbow thoughts, rainbow heart,
Take Rainbow pills - but with caution.”
ITG translation: Fruit is great! Color is, too! Healthy body, healthy mind, take vitamins (?).
“Look at the highrises around you.
Let everything in your room shine and sparkle.
Sparkling phone, sparkling floor
Sparkling glasses, sparkling hats.
Start thinking what else.
Everything that sparkles will bring you a sparkling life.
Sparkling eyes, sparkling belly button, sparkling legs.
Yes, dear. i ii iiii.”
ITG translation: Don’t be afraid of shimmer. Consider glitter. Consider glitter on your belly button? Get a glittery iPhone case.
“Give all the drink to your date,
and you look at the sky from your great window.
The town is waking up.
Pull him by his dyed blond hair
and quickly take him out the door.
Erase him from your computer
Erase him from your memory
He had a cheap smile you didn’t like
so you’ll never Make- up with him even if he tried.”
ITG translation: Drink less. Don’t date guys with dyed blond hair. Conserve your computer memory. Wash that man right out of your hair.
