You know why I love Katy Perry? Because she is talented, abashedly unapologetic about her look and opinions….oh yeah and she’s gawgus. Cover Girl Makeup Artist Jake Bailey created a soft smokey eye (all the rage these days!!) Katy had a recent trip to India and was inspired, along with Jake, they collaborated to create this look.
After a recent trip to India, Katy Perry brought back a variety of bindis and together, with celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey, they used this as inspiration to create a “bettie page, Indian princess look” for this year’s Grammy Awards.
To perfect her skin, Jake used Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation and to set the look, he dusted Guerlain Les Violettes Matte Touch Powder all over the face.
Jake then highlighted the apples of her cheeks with CORALista blush from benefit.
Keeping with the exotic feel, Jake used a mixture of shimmery plums and golds on her eyes. “I was going for a more colorful version of the tradition smoky eye,” said Jake. He used COVERGIRL’s double-ended smoky eye stick, Smoky Shadow Blast in Purple Plume by first applying the angled end of the shadow stick, the deeper plum, over the entire lid and blending into a smoky halo. He then applied Smoky ShadowBlast in Bronze Fire, using the round, golden end to line along the lid and inner corners of her eyes to brighten the look.
To complete her smoky eye, Jake created an ultra-long lash look with several coats of COVERGIRL LashBlast Length in black. “The best thing about this mascara is that you can apply coat after coat to get maximum impact without losing separation and elegance,” said Jake. To balance her dramatic eyes without overpowering them, Jake finished her look with a matte lip, using COVERGIRL Outlast Lipstain in Wild Berry Wink. “I love these Lipstains so much because you can line and shape the entire lip without sacrificing your own lip texture,”
My friend Heather Park wears these bindi things all the time and she pulls it off well. What do you think of the look??
