Halloween Makeup: Katy Perry

12 Oct

With Katy Perry’s success this year, both in music and her multiple magazine cover shots she is bound to be an inspiration for Halloween this month.

Get inspired by her fabulous selection of stage costumes and to finish off the look to perfection make sure you get the makeup right, here Heather C. Adessa gives us tips on how to achieve the Katy Perry “Teenage Dream” look:

Katy Perry's edgy porcelain look

“Katy Perry’s skin looks like porcelain, whether that’s due to makeup or airbrushing we’ll never know!”

  1. To recreate this look on yourself, first cleanse and moisturize extremely well.
  2. Use a primer with silicone, such as Smashbox Foundation Primer, to fill in all the little lines in the face so the end result is flawless.
  3. Apply foundation then a powder for a matte finish that will last. You do not want a shiny complexion with this look. Estee Lauder Double Wear powder keeps the shine down for up to eight hours.
  4. Use a bronzer to create the depth in the cheek bone area, and instead of blush use a highlighter to lighten the top of the cheek bone area.
  5. For the eyes use Sephora’s Jumbo Waterproof Pencil in Marine, then use the MAC Fluidline in Wave with an angled brush to recreate the cat eye effect.
  6. Brows need to be filled with powder so they stand out and look as edgy as Katy Perry’s.
  7. Next apply the false lashes. Ardell’s #109 are perfect and only cost $4. Once applied use the Fluidline again to hide the lash band, apply mascara to make your eyes pop even more!
  8. For the lips, apply a little foundation and powder to make the lipstick last a little longer. Use MAC’s lipstick in Speak Louder to Shop to complete the look.
