Makeup Tutorial Monday|Katy Perry “Unconditionally”


Katy Perry is such a pretty lady, and since we have similar colouring I love to get inspired by her makeup looks!

The look in her “Unconditionally” music video stood out to me today; I love the glowy skin, bright doll-like flush on her cheeks, and strongly shaped brows. I decided to recreate the look for you, I hope you enjoy!



This is my bare face with lotion on. Use sunscreen! Protect your pretty self!



I applied a light coat of Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse in Classic Ivory-Light 2.

You don’t want your base to be too heavy for this look, as her skin looks quite glowy and natural, so I just used enough to even out my skintone and then used a cream concealer for any spots and undereyes.

I powdered under my eyes, in the creases of my nose, and on any concealed areas, then I applied a lip balm and used ELF Wet Gloss Lash and Brow Gel to comb through my brows.

Cheeks and brows:


I used Starlooks Brow Powder Palette in BS4 to create a strong, straight brow with a more angular inside edge like Katy’s. In the final photo (not this one) I’ve also defined more with my NYX Eyebrow Marker in Medium (I love these things.)

I used Pixi Water Blush in Rose Stain-which are unfortunately discontinued (these were such a beautiful product, and this is the first thing I knew I was going to use when I saw Katy’s makeup). I applied it quite heavily on the apples of my cheeks, and blended back to my ears. I used what was left on the brush on my temples.

I used The Balm’s Mary Lou Manizer as a highlight on my chin, nose, cheekbones, and in the center of my forehead for the glowy skin that Katy has, now we’re starting to look alive again!



Katy’s eye look is super natural and basic, it only took about 2 minutes to do! I used the same Starlooks brow powder as before to add definition to my crease and a soft shadow under my eyes, and I used NYX’s Wonder Pencil in Light later on to brighten my waterline. I highlighted my inner corner and brow bone, again with Mary Lou Manizer, and that’s it! Yes, seriously.

The End:


I used Too Faced Lashgasm Mascara and a set of falsies to complete the eyes, and the lipstick I used was a mixture of Tilt/Shift’s Zenith, NYX’s Merlot, and Maybelline’s Fuschia Avenue.

I really hope you enjoyed the tutorial, let me know if there are any other celebrity looks you’d like me to take a swing at! ❤
