Katy Perry is Bold And Beautiful - And You Can Be Too
When You Create The Katy Perry Makeup Look
Katy Perry is known as the beautiful American singer, songwriter and actress who married Russell Brand in 2010. She is also known for her unconventional style, which can often be humerous, bright and reminiscent of decades past. Strangely she likes to use fruit shaped accessories, mostly watermelons, as part of her outfits. She says she was inspired by the 1997 film adaptation of Lolita and she describes her style as a "concoction of different things". When it comes to makeup she usually has signature red lips, and her makeup and hairstyles call to mind other celebrity beauties like Dita Von Teese or even Elizabeth Taylor in her twenties. If you want to create Katy's makeup look, here's some tips on how to do it.
How To Create Katy Perry's Makeup Look
Foundation: First choose a foundation that blends naturally with your own skintone. One of the main things you see when you look at Katy is her perfect complexion. She herself uses foundation and powder, so don't be afraid to use it youself, but stick to a natural, light shade.
Translucent Powder: Don't use bronzer, but dust a small amount of translucent power over your face, particularly in areas which tend to be more oily.
Blusher: Choose a powder blusher in a baby pink tone, one that reminds you of the 50s era - think Marilyn Monroe, and blend this in along your cheekbones, rather than over the apples of your cheeks.
Lips: Apply a matte lipstick in cherry red, fuschia or magenta. Apply one layer, blot with tissue, and then apply a further layer. Keep the look matte and not glossy - again a throwback to the era of the early sirens of the silver screen.
Eyebrows: These should be pencilled in with a dark brown eyebrow pencil, ensuring they have an alluring arch in the middle.
Eyes: Use a set of false eyelashes and apply them to your upper eyelid - they need to be the long and luscious kind that Katy uses. Blend them in with some black gel eyeliner and black mascara on both your upper and lower lashes. Your eyelids do not need any colour, but you can use a neutral shadow to shade along your socket line if you want to add more depth.
Hair: To finish off your look style your hair with either large heated rollers or curl with hair straighteners or a large barrelled curling tong to create filmstar waves.
