THE EVOLUTION OF THE MAKE-UP
The make-up went through many changes before it became what we know (and love) today:
Picture 2 is from early 1973... Paul had dropped the whiteface for a while, and now used red eye shadow.
Picture 3 shows Paul at The Daisy a little later in 1973, and as you can see, Paul had settled on the Starchild make-up design, even though he was still not wearing red lipstick at this time, just as the left eyebrow is unpainted.
Of course, there was another make-up variation... the bandit make-up (picture 4 and 5). The first version of the bandit make-up, was just a black Lone Ranger mask, with silver edges, and silver around the eyes (see picture 4), while the second version was more diamond shaped than the first version. There were also white make-up around the eyes, with black eyeliner (picture 5). Paul became The Bandit in early 1974, for a photo session, and a couple of shows, before returning to being the Starchild!
Picture 6 shows the make-up we know today... a black star around the right eye, heavy black eyeliner around the left, with the left eyebrow painted black, and the lips bright red.
But in 1976 Paul wanted to bring his cheekbones out, and started to add some gray shadow on his cheeks (seen very clearly on picture 7). According to Barry Levine, KISS' favorite photographer, this made it hard to light Paul properly, and he was soon persuaded to drop it.
