No, you are not looking at photos of a Smurfette. You are looking at shots from my Katy Perry Grammys Makeup Tutorial. This year Katy showed up to the Grammys with a blue-dyed coif and bubble gum pink lips. I love her quirky and fun style, so when I saw her come out on the carpet I already knew I wanted to replicate this glamorous yet daring look.

Since I don’t have blue-dyed hair, I threw on this California Girls wig I had and went to town.
For the eyes, Katy had a natural champagne shimmery look with thick, winged eyeliner and humongous lashes. I also traded in my normal brown brow filler for bright blue, as Katy has also done.
The lips were a cool, cotton candy pink.

Judging from my Twitter and Facebook feeds and every beauty blog from here to the moon, Adele wins best makeup at the Grammys by a landslide. The flawlessly matte foundation, the slight contouring, the perfect red lips and nude eye with lots of lashes and bold black liner! ❤
Carrie’s makeup is always on point. Although this is a pretty typical “Carrie” makeup, I think it’s a great look for her. She even added some gold glitter on the lids (you can’t really tell in this photo). Those lashes are pretty bold for her too. Way to go, stepping out of your comfort zone, girl!
Yes, I know Fergie looks a little rough sometimes, but I really liked her choice of tangerine eye shadow and peach lips. It compliments her eyes and skin tone. Gorgeous!
Why this pretty girl insists on covering her face with harsh bangs is beyond me. Underneath that curtain of black, you can see that she has beautiful milky skin, perfect nude lips and a plummy-purple smoky eye with flatters her blue peepers.
I love Katy for bringing colorful hair to the red carpets. She is so stunning and truly rocks the crap out of this on-trend blue hair that was seen on every runway for spring. She complimented her Smurf ‘do with cool-tone pink lips and thick, black cat eye liner. Precious!
I really wanted to hate Kelly Osbourne’s choice of hair color, but I don’t. Those lilac strands just look so darn pretty on her! I adore that she matched her lips to her hair and did her eyes up in a yellow-gold. Yellow is the complimentary color to purple, which is why this look works so well.
The only way to describe Rih-Rih these days is: sex-pot-dot-com. Could she get any hotter? It’s really just unfair. The jury’s still out on her newly-dyed blonde tresses but her makeup is, as always, lovely. Her hazel eyes stand out thanks to the smoky black soot in the under-eye, and she kept it simple on the top lids. The pinky-nude lips work well with this subtle and sultry makeup look. SIZZLE
