Celebrity Makeup: Get Katy Perry’s Makeup & Nail Look at 2013 AMAs

Celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey created the beautiful look on Katy using CoverGirl Cosmetics.

“The moment I saw Katy’s beautiful Oscar de la Renta gown I knew we would do a red lip. Pairing it with black liner and lots of lashes we created a look that is “classic Katy.”

I 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!

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!

I then set the foundation with a light dusting of CoverGirl + Olay Pressed Powder in Light #330 and warmed the apples of her cheeks with Clean Glow Blush in Roses #100. I finished the look with a classic bold red lip. I used CoverGirl LipPerfection in Hot #305 with matching liner. I used the liner to perfect her lip shape before applying color.”

The Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara makes lashes ten times more noticeable than bare lashes! It’s amazing!”

Nails
To match the polka dots on Katy’s dress, celebrity manicurist Kimmie Kyees created a custom mani with 2 coats of Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Color in Slick Black as a base color. Then, she dotted on Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in White On to create the polka dot effect. For a flawless seal and shine, Kimmie used Sally Hansen Triple Shine Top Coat to finish the look.

November 1st, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

For Holiday 2013, designer beauty brand Dolce & Gabbbana bring us Sicilian Jewels, a collection of four gem-like Intense Nail Lacquers with matching Classic Cream Lipsticks.

Dolce & Gabbbana Launches Sicilian Jewels Holiday 2013 Collection
“Matching your lipstick to your nail lacquer is a hot makeup trend. We chose four new shades that showcase the theatrical and playful side of looking good: they are so shiny and special that they’ll be a perfect complement to any holiday or New Year outfit. They can be worn in a young, ironic interpretation or with a more grown-up, sophisticated vibe. Just like a piece of jewelry.” explained Dolce & Gabbana Make Up Creative Advisor, Pat McGrath.

The colors are:

Ruby: Deep red
Amethyst: Bright purple
Emerald: Ice-cold, luminous green
Topaz: Golden amber-yellow

I can understand matching red lips with red nails, even purple, but green nails and green lips? Now that’s new!

Sicilian Jewels Collection will be available at counters starting November 15th. Classic Cream Lipstick and Intense Nail Lacquer will retail $35 and $24, respectively.

2013 Golden Globes Red Carpet Beauty: Sofia Vergara

January 16th, 2013

“I wanted to do a brick red lip on Sofia – something a little deeper and more interesting than a classic red lip. Old Hollywood glamour is a trend for awards season, so Sofia and I did our own twist on the look!” said Kayleen.

Face
“I started by applying Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in Classic Tan (#860) all over and set it with COVERGIRL + Olay Pressed Powder in Medium. Then, I applied a light dusting of Queen Collection Natural Hue Bronzer in Brown Bronze and Cheekers Blush in Sierra Sands, a warm blush, on the apples of the cheeks.”

Eyes
“I wanted to give the eye a wash of shadow, so I used only one shade, Eye Enhancers 1-Kit in Brown Smolder, and softly blended it over the entire lid. I applied LiqulineBlast Liner in Brown Blaze along the bottom lash line and extended it past the lash line to give a slight wing. I finished off the look with three coats of Clump Crusher by LashBlast Mascara on top to really emphasize the lashes, followed by one coat on the bottom.”

Lips
“On the lips, I applied Queen Collection Lipcolor in Into the Red straight from the tube, blotted and added another coat to make it last all night. I gave Sofia the lipstick to keep in her clutch so she could touch herself up throughout the night.”
