The singer wowed at the AMAs with a hot orangey lip color. Find out why her makeup artist decided to use this unique shade!

Katy Perry attended the 2011 American Music Awards wearing makeup created by amazing celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey. Katy’s light pink dress was a big deciding factor in her lip color. Jake explains that he “went for a coral (orangey) red as opposed to a classic red to pick up on some accents in the dress.”

Her hair was also worked into the decision, but when your hair is pink, I suppose that always needs to be considered!

“I used a bright coral red, COVERGIRL LipPerfection lipcolor in flame. This was the perfect color to pick up on the dresses coral accents and complemented her pink hair,” says Jake. “I had Katy apply the lipstick directly from the tube and I refined the edges using a small lipstick brush.”
