Get the Look: Katy Perry’s Glam Retro Makeup

November 25, 2013

Katy Perry rocked the perfect retro makeup look at the American Music Awards 2013, pairing her gorgeous rock-prom Oscar de la Renta gown with classic red lips and va-va-voom lashes. Here’s how celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey created the look using COVERGIRL.

Jake started with a sheer application of COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in Buff Beige #825. “This foundation is perfect for the red carpet because it provides full coverage but can be blended sheerly for light yet durable coverage,” said Jake. “It lasts forever and the 20 SPF is great for a daytime red carpet event because they have to stand in the sun for so long!”

To set the foundation, he finished with a light dusting of COVERGIRL + Olay Pressed Powder in Light #330.

For Katy’s rosy, radiant blush, Jake applied Clean Glow Blush in Roses #100 on the apples of her cheeks.

Jake created a classic Hollywood eye line using COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire #410. He then deepened the crease of her lid using Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Melted Caramel #330.

For Katy’s seriously black lashes, Jake finished with Bombshell Volume Mascara in Very Black #800.

For Katy’s classic red lip, Jake used COVERGIRL LipPerfection in Hot #305 with matching liner, using the liner to create the perfect lip shape before filling in with lipstick.
