Her Exact Look
Jake breaks down the exact look to HollywoodLife.com:
“The moment I saw Katy’s beautiful Oscar de la Renta gown I knew we would do a red lip. Pairing it with black liner and lots of lashes we created a look that is “classic Katy.”
I 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. 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!
For the eyes, I started by creating a classic Hollywood eye line using COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Black Fire #410. I love this pencil because you can create the look of a liquid liner but it’s much easier to apply. I accentuated the crease of her lid using Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Melted Caramel #330 and finished with the NEW Bombshell Volume Mascara in Very Black #800 – it creates extreme volume!
I then set the foundation with a light dusting of COVERGIRL + Olay Pressed Powder in Light #330 and warmed the apples of her cheeks with Clean Glow Blush in Roses #100. I finished the look with a classic bold red lip. I used COVERGIRL LipPerfection in Hot #305 with matching liner. I used the liner to perfect her lip shape before applying color.”
The Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara makes lashes ten times more noticeable than bare lashes! It’s amazing!
