Makeup artist, Sammy Mourabit, got inspiration for Katy Perry’s V Magazine cover from the iconic Betty Page, "I wanted to pay homage to her bombshell beauty look, giving Katy that va va voom factor!" Read below to reveal the beauty tips Sammy used to create the look!
"I started with the face using my finger tip to spot touch COVERGIRL’s Ready, Set, Gorgeous Foundation in Buff Beige #205 all over Katy’s t-zone area. The velour composition effect of the new COVERGIRL RSG Foundation allowed me to create a creamy texture on her gorgeous skin. I then used a tiny bit of the Ready, Set, Gorgeous Concealer on my finger tip and gently dabbed under Katy’s eyes, and on the outer corners, as well as little around the nose.
I then finished the face, by sculpting Katy’s cheek bones with the truMAGIC Sunkisser and Luminizer as well as a hint of Bombshell ShineShadow in Gold Goddess, creating a gentle dewy effect."
"For Katy’s eyes I first focused on the brows. I used COVERGIRL’s Brow and Eyemaker Pencil in Midnight Black and Brown to shape her eyebrows, creating a dramatic effect that was very important to this specific look.
I then mixed Bombshell ShineShadows in Ooh La Lilac and Copper Fling. Their rich pigment and creamy, slightly metallic texture are amazing to create an eye liner fading effect, resulting in a sexy eye look that reflects light perfectly.
I then applied the Flamed Out Shadow Pencil in Crystal Flame to brighten up the inside corner of the eyes for Mademoiselle Perry.
I finished the eye look by applying Bombshell Mascara in Very Black - no false lashes needed with this mascara! Using step 1, I applied a light coat of mascara, separating the lashes. I then used step 2 in the outer upper corners for a more dramatic and intense effect."
"Finally it was time for the lips. I mixed two COVERGIRL Lip Liners together, Sublime #200 and Passion #215, creating a beautiful red and prune pigment, allowing me to contour her sexy lip look. I then used a little bit of LipPerfection in Hot #305 to create a deep red finish."
