Katy rocked two dramatically different looks on the red carpet and on the stage at the 2013 American Music Awards. We chatted with her makeup artist to bring you her exact looks!
Katy Perry, who recently became COVERGIRL‘s newest brand ambassador, rocked the brand at the AMAs, held in Los Angeles, Calif. on Nov. 24. See her exact makeup looks by Jake Bailey below!
Katy Perry’s Performance Makeup — American Music Awards Beauty Look
Katy’s makeup was done by celebrity artist Jake Bailey, who spilled about her two looks to HollywoodLife.com:
“For Katy’s performance we created a look inspired by her recent trip to Japan. This was a dramatic look and we only had a short amount of time to make the change so I had to work fast!
I started by dusting her all over with a theatrical powder from Ben Nye called “Super White” to pale out her complexion as quickly as possible. On her lips, I refreshed her COVERGIRL LipPerfection in Hot #305 and used the liner to make her lips more bow shaped.
I applied COVERGIRL Checkers Blush in Classic Pink #110 all over the sides of her face concentrating the most pigment on her temples. I finished her look with triangular lashes I created by cutting into a particularly large false lash with small cuticle scissors to create the angular shape. This created her dramatic stage look!”
Katy’s Red Carpet Look
Jake also did Katy’s first look — her red carpet beauty:
“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.
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 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.”
