Celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey shares how he achieved Katy Perry's latest red-carpet look:
"The inspiration for the beauty look was 'Disco Angel' — angelic, sparkly and ethereal. I wanted to play off the textures in her dress and wings.
For Katy’s multi-colored eye, I first applied the lavender shade of CoverGirl Smoky ShadowBlast in Silver Sky all along the top lid from lashline to crease and blended with my fingertips. Cream shadows are great adhesive for glitter, which was perfect for applying Makeup For Ever Glitter on the lid by tapping it with my finger. I then applied CoverGirl LiquiLineBlast in Green Glow along the lower water line and lower lashes and blended it with a small brush to smoke it out. I finished the eyes with two coats on top and bottom of CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion in Black.
I first prepped her skin with Nars Gentle Cream Cleanser and Aqua Gel Hydrator. I love the Aqua Gel because it doesn’t make her skin greasy but keeps it moisturized. Katy’s face was flawless, polished skin set with a shimmery pink blush and then I dusted glitter on her cheekbones to add to the sparkle.
On her lips, I created a rich pink look with CoverGirl LipPerfection lipcolor in Temptress for the red carpet and then changed it to a brighter berry pink/red for her performance using LipPerfection lipcolor in Tempt. "
