Katy Perry, 29, always wows us with her out-of-the-box beauty trends, and she did it once again for her newest music video! Katy is known for playing different characters in her videos. From a nerd in “Last Friday Night” to the tan, island deserted beauty in Roar, hair and makeup always plays a key role! What do you think about her latest look?
Katy Perry’s Makeup In ‘Dark Horse’ — Plays Egyptian Queen
In order to channel the blinged out fantasy pharaoh in “Dark Horse,” Katy rocked colorful ancient Egypt inspired makeup. Her gold and purple eyeshadow was applied generously and her eyes were lined with thick, Egyptian art eyeliner.
To really make Katy’s eyes pop (as if she needs it!), her bottom lids were lined with white liner and then traced with black; making her eyes look twice as big!
Her lipstick was a bright berry color and it only added to the over-the-top jeweled grill in her mouth. And lastly, you know it wouldn’t be Katy Perry without a dramatic wig! This time it was a braided-front wig with beads and bangs, finished off with a colorful headdress on top.
Katy’s Fantasy Look
The look for Katy’s “Dark Horse” video is clearly not one for everyday, but it can still inspire your next look. Wearing white liner on your bottom lids is great for making eyes pop against dark eyeliner or mascara. It also fakes a good night’s sleep.
Whether you take something from her look or not, Katy owned it and we can’t wait to see the full length video!
