Makeup artist, Jake Bailey used “Disco Angel” as his inspiration for Katy Perry’s multi-colored makeup look last night at the 53rd annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. Here’s the scoop from Jake:
• Katy wore an Armani Prive dress with a jewel encrusted bar and light-up angel wings. The inspiration for the beauty look was “Disco Angel”—it was angelic, sparkly and ethereal. I wanted to play off the textures in the dress and wings.
• I first prepped her skin with NARS Gentle Cream Cleanser and Aqua Gel Hydrator. I love the Aqua Gel because it doesn’t make her skin greasy, but keeps it moisturized. Katy’s face was flawless, her polished skin was set with a shimmery pink blush, and then I dusted glitter on her cheekbones to add to the sparkle.
• For Katy’s multi-colored eye, I first applied the lavender shade of COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast in Silver Sky all along the top lid from lashline to crease and blended with my fingertips. Cream shadows are great adhesive for glitter, which was perfect for applying Make Up For Ever Glitter on the lid by tapping it with my finger. [Read more…]
