To complement her gorgeous Vivienne Westwood couture tube dress at the 2011 American Music Awards , makeup artist Jake Bailey gave Katy Perry a classic makeup look with liquid liner, lashes and coral red lips while Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Renato Campora created a very sculpted, modern French twist updo on her.
“I perfected her skin by buffing a liquid foundation onto her skin using a large kabuki brush and set it with a dusting of Guerlain Les Violettes loose powder. I warmed her complexion with a tawny blush from Nars called “Madly” and swirled a tiny bit of a coral shimmer blush called “Orgasm”… also from Nars on the apples of her cheeks for a little extra glow.”
“I elongated her eyes using a liquid liner marker from Le Metier. Then, I applied 2 sets of strip lashes and coated them with 2 coats of CoverGirl LashBlast 24Hr mascara. This is an extra rich formula that lasts forever. I’ve been using this on all my clients for red carpets lately since I can’t always be with them for touch ups. I lined her lower lashline with CoverGirl LiquilineBlast eyeliner in “Violet Voltage” I softened it by blending it out with a small shadow brush.”
“I used a bright coral red, CoverGirl LipPerfection lipcolor in “Flame”. This was the perfect color to pick up on the dresses coral accents and complemented her pink hair. I had Katy apply the lipstick directly from the tube and I refined the edges using a small lipstick brush. ”
Renato began by applying Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel to wet hair in order to give it a firm base. He then blow-dried the hair while brushing it through with a flat brush. He used an one-inch curling iron throughout the hair to create body while giving it a sturdy foundation. Renato then heavily teased the hair. To create the final up-do, he pushed the front of the hair forward and wrapped the rest into a French twist, securing it with hairpins. To complete the look, Renato added an accessory made by Vivienne Westwood by weaving it into the hair with his fingers. He secured the look by spraying the hair with Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray.
