Celebrity Inspirations: Katy Perry

I love Katy Perry’s style. The modern vintage pin-up look is really her thing. Her eye makeup really pops in this picture…which gave me  an idea, why not recreate some of my favorite celebrity looks but add my own twist to it.

I recreated the look at a 50’s pin-up photoshoot recently…but I decided to go with red lips instead. The model, Morgan was a pleasure to work with. Photography by Ed Frazier.

For this look I used glitter (which can be very messy). Make sure you pack on the glitter with a disposable applicator, rather than using an eye shadow brush. Also, spray a liquid set on the applicator. MAC has one it is called Fix +.

Disclamier: Please be aware, not all glitter is safe for the eye area. The glitter particles can scratch the cornea. So please be careful when dealing with glitter around your eyes.


Use whatever concealer, foundation and powder that works best on your skin type. Make sure the products match your skin tone perfectly and blend, blend, blend.
