A Grammy Award continues to elude singer Katy Perry, but she wins top honors for best beauty look of the night. The “Roar” singer changed outfits a total of four times throughout the evening, but our favorite was created by makeup artist Jake Bailey for the red carpet using the hottest new products from COVERGIRL and Olay.
“Katy had a very clear idea of what she wanted for the GRAMMYs this year,” Jake said. “She wanted sexy eyes, elegant lashes and she wanted to GLOW! I was quick to agree as I had seen the ethereal gown she was going to wear – stunning!”
Here’s what you products you need, and step-by-step directions from Jake:
I started by prepping her skin with Olay’s new Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream. This is perfect to use under makeup as it delivers lots of moisture but still feels lightweight and foundation glides smoothly over it.
Once the moisturizer had absorbed, I got to work on the skin. Since we were going for maximum "glow" I mixed equal parts COVERGIRL BB cream and COVERGIRL TruBLEND Liquid Foundation on the back of my palm before buffing it all over her face and neck with a soft brush for sheer coverage and a polished glow.
I started the eye look by painting a delicate line onto her lashline and a subtle "cat eye" wing in the outer corners of her eyes using COVERGIRL Bombshell Liquid Liner. I then coated her lashes with Bombshell Volume Mascara, top and bottom. I used the first coat to get that volumized look and then applied the second coat for the intense jet black wet lash look. I then applied Bombshell Shine Shadow in Gold Goddess into the crease of her eyelid and highlighted her lids and browbones with Flamed Out Shadow in Blazing White. I finished the eye look with a strong brow and a coat of clear mascara to hold them in place.
Once I finished with the eyes, I warmed and highlighted her complexion using COVERGIRL TruMAGIC Sunkisser and Luminizer. I blended the Sunkisser along the hairline and into the hollows of the cheeks to add warmth and dimension. I then took the Luminizer and used it to add a golden glow to her cheekbones, tip of her nose and just above the cupids bow of her lips. Once I set the makeup with COVERGIRL + Olay Pressed Powder, I dusted a little bit of shimmery coral blush on the apples of her cheeks.
I finished the look with a fresh coral/pink shade called "Heavenly" from the COVERGIRL LipPerfection collection and tipped it with a touch of balm for extra shine.
Want to take it a step further? We loved Katy’s Grammy manicure and you can get it to following these instructions from manicurist Kimmy Kyees:
“Katy wanted something really simple and chic to go with her red carpet dress and her performance look. We chose a light pink shade called “Everbloom” from the COVERGIRL Outlast Nail Gloss collection. It offered just a subtle hint of color to keep the focus on her gown and flawless face. “
Was Katy your favorite look of the night?
