Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Katy Perry at 52nd Annual Grammy Awards

January 31, 2010

Katy Perry looked gorgeous as usual at the 2010 Grammy Awards tonight. The singer paired a stunning embellished nude Zac Posen gown with Bollywood-inspired makeup and even wore a bindi. Read on to find out how celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey created the look.

To perfect her skin, Jake used my favorite Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation and to set the look, he dusted Guerlain Les Violettes Matte Touch Powder all over the face. Jake then highlighted the apples of her cheeks with CORALista blush from Benefit.

Keeping with the exotic feel, Jake used a mixture of shimmery plums and golds on her eyes. “I was going for a more colorful version of the tradition smoky eye,” said Jake. He used CoverGirl Smoky Shadow Blast in Purple Plume by first applying the angled end of the shadow stick, the deeper plum, over the entire lid and blending into a smoky halo. He then applied Smoky ShadowBlast in Bronze Fire, using the round, golden end to line along the lid and inner corners of her eyes to brighten the look. To complete her smoky eye, Jake created an ultra-long lash look with several coats of CoverGirl LashBlast Length in black.

To balance her dramatic eyes without overpowering them, Jake finished her look with a matte lip, using CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain in Wild Berry Wink.
