I always feel a little “eh” about giving you Get The Look breakdowns. On the one hand, you can probably find them on a zillion sites, since publicists often send them out the morning after big events. On the other…well, when it’s a fun makeup or hair look, why not?!
So, here’s how to get Katy Perry‘s makeup from last night, straight from the horse’s mouth: her CoverGirl makeup artist, Jake Bailey. (I’ve met Jake at fashion week a few times, by the way, and he is lovely!)
“I used COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast in Beige Blaze on the inner corner of the eye and then blended COVERGIRL Intense ShadowBlast in Forever Pink all the way up to the brow brown. The blue and pink colors mixed together created the gorgeous lavendar shade.
“Intense ShadowBlast worked really well for this look because not only did the liquid formula blend together easily, but the built-in primer allowed it to stay in place all night.
“I finished the eye with NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara in Black on the top and bottom lashes and slightly smudged it into the lash line for a bold look.
“I highlighted her cheeks with a coral shimmer blush and then finished the look with COVERGIRL LipPerfection lipcolor in Temptress, the perfect balance of pink and coral for lips that really popped.”
PS: Katy’s hair was done by Frederic Fekkai stylist Renato Campora, who was going for “a modern take on a 1940′s Hollywood look” and used Fekkai Full Blown Mousse on wet hair before blowdrying and finishing with a 1/2 inch curling iron.
