Get The Look: Katy Perry Dark Horse Make Up and Nails

Katy Perry is one of my favourite artists and has been for years. She is so inventive with her music, outgoing and not forgetting she's gorgeous. Her Dark Horse video has had very mixed opinions, but one thing is for sure, her make up is crazy, I just had to try it. Keep reading to see how I got on...



I decided to go for Katy's purple and gold look on the eyes, as pictured above. The colours are very bold and the eyeliner is super wacky and egyptian-esque. 
For this look I made use of my Urban Decay Bamboo palette (which has been discontinued but you can find similar colours in this palette named Fun). For the gold, I used the world's favourite, Half Baked. I blended this into my inner corner towards the middle of my eye. I used Flash, a bright purple colour to blend out to the edges and made this colour pop that little more using another bright purple from my medium Sephora palette (similar here). For the liner, I followed the design on Katy's eyes and using my Collection 24hr Felt Tip Liner, emphasising the black using Oil Slick from the bamboo palette. My mascara is Volume Glamour Max by Bourjois. For the rest of the look I used Revlon's ColorStay Foundation, as recommended by Tanya Burr, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, Lancome In Love Blush in Pomettes D'Amour, Benefit's Hoola to contour, Mac's Soft and Gentle to highlight, with Urban Decay's Brow Box on my brows in Honey Pot. Katy wears a plum/purple lip but I went for a gradient look, using my hot pink by MUA and Bourjois' Color Burst in Plum Russian





For my nails I went with the simple aztec-looking blue and gold look, picture below. I used Ciate's Underwear to prep and then applied two coats of Mac's Screaming Bright for the gold colour. I blue I used BarryM's Cyan Blue, sealing it all in with Ciate's Speed Coat Pro.



It's a bit rough but what do you think? I think that this would be a perfect look for an egyptian themed party, or if you just wanted to dress up like Katy Perry! I would so go like this to her gig, but I think my crying will ruin it!

Love, Steph xxxx
