It's not very often (try never!) that I write a Glam Slam for how to get the look on someone sporting lavender hair! But I thought Katy Perry's hairstyle and makeup at the AMA's was totally adorable, totally Katy.
Here's how you can do it yourself:
KATY'S MAKEUP LOOK: WHO: Makeup artist Jake Bailey
INSPIRATION: "I wanted to do a sophisticated twist on the 'classic Katy' look to complement the Vivienne Westwood couture dress. We went extra dramatic with the signature liquid liner and lashes and went for a coral (orangey) red as opposed to a classic red to pick up on some accents in the dress."
HOW TO: "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's 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 Lash Blast 24HR mascara (available in January!). 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 lash line with COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast 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."
KATY'S HAIR WHO: Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Renato Campora
INSPIRATION: "A very sculpted, modern take on a French twist. Renato was inspired for this look after seeing Katy's red carpet dress. The look was elegant and sophisticated but also innovative."
HOW TO: 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 a 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 updo, 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.
