How to Do Your Hair and Makeup Like Katy Perry at the 2012 Grammys

Katy Perry stuck to her usual quirky style at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards. The singer was blue from head to toe, in a textured Elie Saab gown with a flowing train and a sash tied in a bow. The shade of the dress complemented her elegantly coifed hair, and her makeup was simple and elegant. Find out how to get Katy’s look for yourself.

Heavy eyeliner is a Katy Perry trademark, and the Grammys were no exception. Begin by applying a blue-gray shade of shadow to the eyelids, stopping at the crease. Use a pearl white color underneath the brow bone and on the inner corners of the eyes, to create a wide-eyed effect. Take an angled eyeliner brush and use it to apply a black gel liner to the upper eyelids. Thicken the line as you work your way toward the outer corners, adding a slight wing at the end. A full set of false lashes is necessary to get the singer’s flirty flutter. Katy also fills in her eyebrows to add dimension to her face. To do this, use a pencil or a matte eye shadow in a color that is one shade lighter than your natural brows.

Finish this look with just a hint of color on the cheeks and a bright pout. Katy used a very sheer, peachy-pink blush, applied on the apples of the cheeks and swept upward to the temples. Line the lips with a berry-colored lip pencil, before applying a matching matte lipstick.

Katy is famous for her frequently changing locks. For the Grammy Awards, the pop star’s color of choice was blue. Her short hair was swept into a sophisticated, gravity-defying bouffant. To steal this look, begin by separating the top-middle section of hair from the rest of the head. Divide this section into smaller pieces, and wrap them in hot rollers. Leave rollers in for approximately ten minutes before removing. Use a rat tail comb to tease the curled sections of hair, beginning at the back of the head, and working your way to the front. Sweep hair back and gather at the nape of the neck, leaving volume high at the top, while pulling the sides tight. Twist hair into a roll, and secure with bobby pins. Use a comb to smooth hair at the front, before misting the entire head with firm-hold hairspray.

I loved that quick moment of time when she had the blunt, blond bob. Boring maybe, but I think I'm over her different hair colors. This comment has been removed.

It almost looks like she has green roots. I wish she would have done her black hair with this dress instead of being matchy matchy. This comment has been removed.
