How to Do Your Makeup Like Katy Perry

Katy Perry Makeup
Okay, we get it: She kissed a girl and she liked it. With those sinfully red lips that have become her signature, it'd be difficult to kiss anyone without leaving a mark. Katy Perry's makeup and hair call to mind other red carpet beauties like Rose McGowan and Dita Von Teese. Here's how to copy the look. In the meantime, try on Katy Perry's makeup in our virtual makeup studio.

Fair skin, luscious lips and shiny raven hair are key to copying this Katy Perry look. Choose a foundation that blends effortlessly with your natural skin tone and skip bronzer to keep the look as pale as possible, opting instead for translucent powder. Blush should be applied to the contours of the cheeks, not the apples. Pick a soft baby pink for a look that harks back to the 1950s. Katy Perry's makeup is absolutely inspired by sexy pin-ups of yore.

On lips, choose a bold magenta or cherry red lipstick to electrify onlookers. At the other end of the spectrum is nude or baby pink. Apply one layer, blot, then repeat. Set it with translucent powder. Apply one more layer, but skip the gloss to keep the look alluringly matte.

Eyes are bereft without full strips of false lashes, and brows should be polished with a noticeable arch.

You can achieve Katy Perry's hair with hot rollers or a wide barrel curling iron. Curl each section of hair in a flipping motion. Think upward instead of under to create undulating waves that have mind of their own. --Stephanie Simons

I REALLY love Katy Perry's look (in the robot scene) in her ET music video. She can really pull off so many looks, and the ethereal extraterrestrial being one of them! This comment has been removed.
