Makeup Tutorial Monday|Katy Perry “Unconditionally”

banner6

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!

Beginning:

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

Base:

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!

Eyes:

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! ❤
