Hi peeps! Sorry it took me so long to post, I just got back from my bachelorette weekend in Vegas and I’m less than two weeks away from being married. Needless to say, my mind is on complete overload and I’m scatter-brained for life.
Anyways, has anyone seen the post-divorce look Katy Perry has been rocking? I’m in love with the purple hair and vampy makeup. She doesn’t quite look goth, it’s more teetering on the edge of “dark pinup.” It’s like the goth from high school grew up and got a job. Katy’s face is a makeup artist’s dream: big, round, blue eyes, long lashes, strong brows and smooth complexion. So anytime she does a new look, I basically die.
What’s special about this tutorial is that all the products I will be using are from Youngblood Cosmetics. I really love that this company was created by a dermatologist who cares enough to make all of her products cruelty-free and paraben-free. Why not highlight a brand whose products are harmless to animals and whose products are actually good for your skin, right?
Here’s my take below:
This look was a very clean, simple eye with strong eye brows and a deep dark lip.

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.
