‘Well, look, I’m giving you an Egyptian eye,’ said the 36-year-old Big Gold Brick actress, who was working on the left side of his face.

‘That’s kind of fire, see? [But] your lid is wild so let me get in here a little bit.’

MGK (born Colson Baker) then pointed to the right side of his face and complained: ‘This lid is f***ing wild. This s*** looks f***ing crazy.’

Wowza: the set also featured pyrotechnics which enhanced his enthusiastic performance

Olivia defended herself: ‘Because I’m not done.’

‘I look like Towelie in South Park after he does a whippet,’ the Texan-born musician deadpanned.

MGK was referencing the season 17 episode titled ‘Crippled Summer’ of the Comedy Central cartoon when the stoner character Towelie got high off of cans of computer duster.

The One Way actor – who was only sporting pink sweatpants – was sipping red wine before asking Stone to bring him food, and she delivered a glass of what appeared to be V8.

As the ladies worked their magic on MGK he suddenly blasted ‘insecure internet dudes’ criticizing his makeover, mouthing they were ‘bi*** a** motherf***ers’ before inexplicably saying: ‘Namaste.’

The More Than Life rocker said he was proud to have been raised and surrounded by powerful women, and said whenever his 13-year-old daughter Casie (with ex Emma Cannon) ‘wants to do this to me it’s open season.’

‘I said make me look like 3050! Give me blood coming out of my nose. I don’t want lashes,’ MGK warned before Fox put lashes on his left eye.

Applause: His show ended with an epic finale and the audience cheered and applauded

‘No, you’re not putting these on me!’

The Tennessee-born brunette – who wanted to give him a ‘glam beat’ with a contoured nose – pleaded: ‘You have to! Look, it looks so much better. Please please please!’

The heavily-tattooed millennial responded: ‘And this is when we end the live.’
