BEST. ACCESSORY. OF. THE. NIGHT.
Celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey created Katy Perry’s pretty, glowing Grammys makeup, and shares some easy makeup tips for recreating the look at home!
“I started by prepping her skin with Olay’s new Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream.
Once the moisturiser had absorbed, I got to work on the skin. Since we were going for maximum “glow,” I mixed equal parts COVERGIRL BB cream and COVERGIRL TruBLEND Liquid Foundation on the back of my palm before buffing it all over her face and neck with a soft brush for sheer coverage and a polished glow.”
“I started the eye look by painting a delicate line onto her lashline and a subtle cat eye wing in the outer corners of her eyes using COVERGIRL Bombshell Liquid Liner.
I then coated her lashes with Bombshell Volume Mascara, top and bottom. I used the first coat to get that volumised look and then applied the second coat for the intense jet black wet lash look.
I then applied Bombshell Shine Shadow in Gold Goddess into the crease of her eyelid and highlighted her lids and browbones with Flamed Out Shadow in Blazing White.
I finished the eye look with a strong brow and a coat of clear mascara to hold them in place.”
“Once I finished with the eyes, I warmed and highlighted her complexion using COVERGIRL TruMAGIC Sunkisser and Luminizer. I blended the Sunkisser along the hairline and into the hollows of the cheeks to add warmth and dimension.
I then took the Luminizer and used it to add a golden glow to her cheekbones, tip of her nose and just above the cupids bow of her lips.
Once I set the makeup with COVERGIRL + Olay Pressed Powder, I dusted a little bit of shimmery coral blush on the apples of her cheeks.”
“I finished the look with a fresh coral/pink shade called “Heavenly” from the COVERGIRL LipPerfection collection and tipped it with a touch of balm for extra shine.”
