Iman's Pretty Purple Makeup: How To Get The Look (PHOTOS)

Iman may be one of the world's most famous supermodels, but we like to think of the Somali-born stunner as more superhuman.

Mrs. David Bowie has served as a muse for designers like Gianni Versace and Yves Saint Laurent. This striking portrait, snapped in 1980 just a few years after her first appearance in Vogue, highlights her true beauty. The bright purple eyeliner, magenta shadow, shiny red lips and contoured blush complement her copper-toned complexion. Do you like Iman's bold makeup, or do you favor a more subtle palette?
