Eyeshadow of the future uses LEDs not makeup

I admit that Ii have never understood makeup. I can get that women wear the stuff to make them look better (so they think) and cover up things on the face like blemishes. The part I have never understood is why some women wear makeup that is in weird colors or is plastered on their face. To each their own, I guess. I once knew a woman that had her makeup tattooed on her face so she would wake up ready to go. Geeky women or anyone else that likes eyeshadow and raves will appreciate this LED eyeshadow.

I can only imagine how annoying having some colored LEDs in the corner of your eye could be. Not to mention the wires that have to run over your eyebrow and behind your ear to power those LEDs. The effect is very odd and reminds me a bit of something Lady Gaga would wear at a concert combined with a dress made out of hot dogs.

The LED eyeshadow concept was dreamed up by designer Lulin Ding and the thing you see hanging behind the woman's ear in the gallery photos is apparently some of the works for the electronics in the eyeshadow. Ding said, "I sought to translate the attributes of eyeshadow into a digital medium. I made the initial decision to use the light to paint the eyelids when you blink and close your eye."
