Get the look: Katy Perry at the AMAs

2013 American Music Awards - ArrivalsWhat’s not to love about Katy Perry?

Both her looks last night were among the highlights of the evening for me.

Her makeup was done by celebrity makeup artist  Jake Bailey, who says the moment he saw Katy’s beautiful Oscar de la Renta gown he knew last night was going to be a classic Katy look — red lip, black liner and lots of lashes.

I’m all about that!

Jake 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!” Jake says.

“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!”
Jake then set the foundation with a light dusting ofCOVERGIRL + Olay Pressed Powder in Light #330 and warmed the apples of her cheeks with Clean Glow Blushin Roses #100 and finished the look with a classic bold red lip, using COVERGIRL LipPerfection in Hot #305 with matching liner.

Performance Look:

2013 American Music Awards - ShowKaty’s performance used 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!” says Jake!
“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.”

Jake then applied COVERGIRL Checkers Blush in Classic Pink #110 all over the sides of her face concentrating the most pigment on her temples and finished her look with triangular lashes he created by cutting into a particularly large false lash with small cuticle scissors to create the angular shape.

Which was your favorite Katy look from last night? (I’m all about those crazy lashes from her performance look!)

    Katie is a fun girl. I love all of her crazy outfits that goes well with her personalities

  2. Kelsey

    She does have an interesting look. It is both timeless and creatively unique. =) Mostly I just enjoy how positive she seems to be.

  3. summer

    I think this one was a bit disrespectful

  4. maddy

    I didn’t like her performance look

  5. ravzie

    I adore Katy! She’s young and fun, but not trashy.

  6. Susan Christy

    Love her! Saw Katy on Jay Leno recently and she is so funny!!

  7. ellen beck

    She’s a pretty gal and stays pretty classy with her looks. I have always thought she looked like a real film star not something like Miley.

  8. nancy reid

    OMG What a living doll she is! I’m a little old for her look, though. So refreshing to see her dressing so appropriately and lovely compared to some others in her profession!

  9. carol

    She looked great – both looks.

  11. Elena Vo

    I liked her performance look because she turned a very feminine and traditional outfit into something modern with her blunt bangs and AMAZING eyelashes. She made it into a fun, rockabilly-kind of a style!

  12. LOVE Katy Perry and her totally fun style.

  13. Susan P.

    I like her red carpet look especially with the gown.

    Makeup does wonders!
