Get the Look: Katy Perry at the Super Bowl XLIX.

Katy Perry ROCKED the half time show at the Super Bowl XLIX. She brought down the house. Of course, I was all about her look and could not wait to find out what COVERGIRL makeup she was rocking.

Celebrity makeup artist Jake Bailey did Katy's makeup for the big event and gave me the details.

"Today is one of the most exciting days of my career! Knowing my work would be seen by millions and millions of people I've been understandably nervous. Katy's performance had multiple costume changes so I needed to create a strong look that would complement all of her outfits, as there was absolutely no time for a touch up in between the quick changes. It’s the Super Bowl after all!

I decided to go with a classic Katy look -- elongated cat eyes, lots of mascara, super sparkly gold and silver glitter, and a bold red lip for glamour and showmanship. I wanted her to glow and sparkle for her big moment in just nine steps!

1.       To create a sheer and flawless canvas I began by buffing a dime size amount of COVERGIRL Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation in Natural Beige all over her face and neck.

2.       For an elongated cat eye I used COVERGIRL Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner in Black Onyx and painted a glitter adhesive just above the black liner and carefully placed a mix of gold and silver glitter on the adhesive with a tiny eyeliner brush for precision.

3.       Then I applied COVERGIRL Eye Shadow Quads in Blooming Blushes to add warmth and dimension. I love this palette because it takes the guesswork out of getting gorgeous eyes, it has number for the shades – 1,2,3,4 – so I know just how to apply! I used the fourth shade to define the crease and the first shade to highlight the lids.

4.       I finished the eye look with an aggressive lash curling and two coats of new COVERGIRL Full Lash Bloom by LashBlast Mascara in Very Black that left her lashes voluminous and touchably soft throughout her performance! No time for flakes during this performance.

5.       To give her brows shape and structure, I added COVERGIRL Pow-der Brow + Liner in Dark Brown.

6.       For extra dimension, I warmed her cheeks using COVERGIRL Clean Glow Blush in Roses using the lighter shades on the apples of her cheeks and the darker shade in the hollows of her cheeks

7.       Then I added COVERGIRL truMAGIC Luminizer to her cheekbones and brow bones for a shimmery glow.

8.       Moving on to the lips, I lined and shaped her lips using COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lip Liner in Hot. I then applied a coat of new COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick in Seduce Scarlet - truly a classic red, for a classic Katy look.

9.       I topped it off with a tiny dollop of COVERGIRL Lip Lava in Mauva Lava for a fun and bold lip look!

There you have it! A look appropriate for the biggest game of the year!"

I also have the details on her super high pony, courtesy of KMS California.

Celebrity stylist, Clyde Haygood, said the inspiration for the look was that “Katy specifically asked for the perkiest pony you’ve ever seen!” Clyde created the pony with extra bounce so it went with the choreography and allowed Katy to helicopter it around while performing with Lenny Kravitz.

The ponytail was constructed using a human hair Velcro pony with hair in various lengths sewn onto the inside and outside for added volume. With the added weight, in ordered to create a comfortable support system, Clyde sewed an elastic band to the base on the inside of the pony and put a toggle closure to make the ponytail retractable and actually open and close around Katy’s own hair.
 
To set the ponytail, first Clyde took five 3-inch sections and curled them with a 2-inch iron to create an “S” wave. Each section was sprayed with KMS California FREESHAPE 2-in-1 styling + finishing spray ($20.99) before curling. Clyde used this spray because it’s heat activated and perfect to use with irons for setting dry hair. It also brushed out beautifully giving him the bounce he wanted for the performance.‬
 
‪Next, Clyde worked on slicking Katy’s own hair back with his “go-to” gel product, KMS California HAIRSTAY styling gel ($16.50). This gel has impeccable hold and gave Clyde the glass-like shine he wanted for Katy’s hair.
 
‪Once the ponytail was attached Clyde took a small amount of KMS California HAIRPLAY gel wax ($19.75) into the palm of his hands then top-coated Katy's pony to tame any flyaways and give added support to the style. Clyde likes this product because it has the hold of a gel, yet has flexibility and lets hair move naturally. ‬

Get the Look: Katy Perry at the American Music Awards.

Makeup Artist Jake Bailey created the look for Katy Perry last night, for her appearance at this years American Music Awards.

"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.

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 Viollettes 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 (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 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."

Fekkai Celebrity Stylist Renato Campora Created A High-Fashion Sophisticated Up-Do for Katy.

The inspiration was 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 Get the Look: 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 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.
