The ever-evolving Katy Perry proves that there is no style too outrageous for her to try at least once. The radiant artist sparkled on the Grammy Awards red carpet in a sheer Zuhair Murad embellished dress and an orchid-hued tousled bob hairstyle that perfectly complemented her sultry beauty look.
With such a bold look, celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey created an elegant makeup that played up Katy’s greatest features without looking too over done. Jake didn’t wait to complete with the bright tones of her hair and opted to use warm bronzes throughout the look.
Here’s how Jake achieved this sultry cat-eye look:
To create that flawless finish on the skin, Jake began by layering CoverGirl Stay Fabulous Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation onto skin with a flat kabuki foundation brush. The flat compact style of the brush allowed Jake to evenly work the product into the skin and create a streak free application that looked softly airbrushed. Jake revisits the skin after the eyes are complete and sets the foundation with a light dusting of CoverGirl Clean Powder.
For that dramatic face-framing brow, Jake emphasized Katy’s brows with CoverGirl Powder Brow + Liner in Medium Brown.
It was all about the eyes with this look. He started by blending the darkest shade of the CoverGirl Eye Shadow Quads in Blooming Blushes onto the outer creases and pulling it into the crease. Jake then saturated a shadow brush with the second darkest and layered it the lids. He continued the gradient effect by applying the third shade on the inner lids. He finished by applying the lightest shade in the tear ducts as a highlight which opened up the eyes and gave the illusion of a brighter effect overall.
To achieve that bold black graphic cat eye, Jake expertly lined Katy’s eyes with CoverGirl Bombshell Intensity Liner and finished the eyes with a two generous coats of CoverGirl Full Lash Bloom by LashBlast Mascara on both the upper and lower lashes.
To accentuate the cheeks, Jake used CoverGirl Clean Glow Blush for both definition and color. He sculpted the cheekbones with the darkest shade in the compact and followed with the lightest tone on the apples of the cheeks.
