Steal the Look: Katy Perry in her new Dark Horse Video!

Steal the Look: Katy Perry in her new Dark Horse Video!

Various things I love a great deal include: Katy Perry and ancient queens. (It’s true.) Which is why I’m all about the new Katy Perry video premiering tomorrow. The video for Dark Horse (available tomorrow on KatyPerry.com) has a very Cleopatra feel, and I got all the details on how to steal the look via our beloved Cover Girl Katy Perry’s makeup artist, the fab Jake Bailey. “The central element to this look is definitely the intricate liner,” says Bailey. “This eye makeup is based on the Egyptian Eye, also known as the Eye of Horus,  which is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health.  An appropriate look for Katy’s regal character in this video!” I’m so excited. To create this look...

Steal the look: Katy Perry at the Grammy Awards

Steal the look: Katy Perry at the Grammy Awards

As I share endlessly, Katy Perry is one of my very favorite humans. She was fabulous as always tonight at the Grammy Awards, where her hair for the evening was styled by celebrity stylist Renato Campora. “Katy wanted to wear her hair up and I was inspired by the soft, romantic look of her dress,” says Campora. “First I sprayed her hair with the Herbal Essences Naked Sheer Shine Mist and then blew it out to a sleek, polished finish.  Once her hair was dry, I pulled it into a tight, high ponytail.  To add more volume and texture to the ponytail, I sprayed the Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo throughout the length of her hair.  Then I twisted the ponytail and wrapped it around the base of her hair to create the crown.  I secured the crown...

Get the look: Katy Perry at the AMAs

What’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!”...

Get the look: Katy Perry in new Unconditionally video!

One of my favorite people, celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey, did Katy Perry’s makeup for her latest video, Unconditionally, (it’s awesome, you  need to check it out) and she looked fantabulous. For this video, Katy and Jake wanted to create something romantic yet dramatic to reflect the style and lighting of the video. As Katy is the queen of romantically dramatic, I’m a huge fan.  ”For this set up I chose to go with alabaster skin, ethereal pink cheeks and a deep matte lip for dramatic impact. I kept the eyes simple with a coat of black mascara and a light dusting of warm taupe eyeshadow,” Bailey says. FACE “I first prepped her skin with Olay Fresh Effects “Long Live Moisture” Satin Finish Moisturizer. Since...

On my wish list: Katy Perry Barbie!

On my wish list: Katy Perry Barbie!

I’ve never bothered to downplay how much I adore Ms. Katy Perry, and so I’m LOVING that Mattel created a Katy Perry Barbie doll to benefit Project Angel Food. The inspiration for the doll was Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” video. Mattel’s Barbie designer Amy Lee went into great detail on the Barbie doll, which contains 70 hand-painted cupcakes, a glittered candy cane mic and fishnet stockings with embedded Swarovski crystals. T he doll is being auctioned here on Charitybuzz.com and will end 3 pm on December 19 (which just HAPPENS to be my...

Schick Quattro for Women Dare to Be Spontaneous: Katy Perry Concert Tix Giveaway!

Schick Quattro for Women Dare to Be Spontaneous: Katy Perry Concert Tix Giveaway!

Do you all remember last month when my beauty besties and I went on a little trip to South Beach, and while we were there just HAPPENED to hang out with a certain Katy Perry? Well, here’s the scoop: The trip was sponsored by Schick Quattro for Women, the official partner of the Katy Perry California Dreams tour, and they launched the Dare to be Spontaneous summer program — which among other fabulous components, encourages women to embrace the freedom that comes from having legs so smooth you can skip a day or two. Trust me, this is an amazing thing. Especially when you are more of a “booty call” than a “date night” sort of girl. Not that I am. Remotely. Obviously. Anyway, throughout the last few weeks and this month, my blogger...
