Tutorial: Katy Perry Inspired Look (California Gurls Music Video)

Hey guys,

Today I am bringing you a fun, candy coloured look inspired by an outfit that Katy Perry wears in her video for California Gurls. This look was requested so I how that you like it, let me know below! If you guys have another other requests please leave them in the comments below because this was really fun to do and I want to do things that you guys would like to see!

Here is the picture I based my look on:

Onto the look:


Colours you will need to recreate this look:
-  Matte White
- Matte Neon Pink
- Deep Metallic Fuchsia
- Matte Grape
- Metallic Cobalt Blue

- White Shadow Base
- White Eyeliner
- Black Eyeliner
- Black Liquid Liner
- Mascara
- Clear Mascara

Blend a matte white shadow base (NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk) all over lid up to brow.

With a flat shader brush, pick up a matte white shadow, (Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 - Pillow Talk), apply to inner corner of the lid and blend towards the center of the lid.

On another shader brush, pick up a matte neon pink (Sleek Acid Palette, Bottow Row, 3rd Shade in), and blend onto remaining portion of lid and into the crease (to help transition next shade).

On a rounded pencil brush take a deep metallic fuchsia shade (Sleek Acid Palette, First Row, First Shade), and place it in the crease and blend upwards, also blend it into the matte neon pink shade. Bring it about 3/4 of the way towards your nose.

On a small fluffy brush, pick up a matte grape shade (Sleek Acid Palette, Bottom Row, First Shade), and apply it onto where the fuchsia shade ends. Start at the outer edge and blend towards the nose, following the shape of the shadow.

On an accent brush, take a metallic cobalt blue shade (Sleek Acid Palette, Top Row, Fifth Shadow), and smudge it along bottom lash line from the centre all the way up and extend the line to create an eyeliner look.

Apply  a thin line of black liquid liner (NYX Collection Noir Liquid Black Liner) and wing it out slightly to meet the blue shade.

Apply a black pencil liner to tightline (Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner Pencil) and a white eyeliner (LA Girl) to the waterline.

Curl lashes and generously apply mascara (essence 2-in-1 Mascara).

Apply clear mascara to bottom lashes.


Swatches of Sleek Acid Palette and Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 Palette as mentioned.

Thanks for stopping by!
