It’s finally here – September = the biggest issue of the year that dictates the trends you’ll be wearing and what you’ll be buying for the next six months.. And who better to grace the cover than international icon Katy Perry. Forget the fashion for a moment (in case you can't, she's in Alexander Wang, Prada and Louis Vuitton) Katy was beautified on the day by some of the best in the business. Introducing the experts...
Renato Campora created Katy’s textured hair style, make-up artist Jake Bailey gave her smoky eyes and a flawless base and manicurist Kimmie Kyees added a pop of colour into the mix.
Get Katy’s smooth and even complexion with this long-lasting, mattifying foundation.
If you don’t want to apply to your entire face you can just touch up where needed with your foundation brush.
Apply this powder over your foundation for maximum staying powder. Packed with 48 minerals (yes, almost 50 in that little pot) it treats your skin whilst concealing and smoothing.
See how Katy’s eyes sparkle? Two drops of this and your eye colour will look brighter and your eye whites whiter.
Tip – a great cheat product to mask tired eyes.
Katy’s coveting one of the most talked about looks from the AW13 catwalks – structured boxy brows.
Get the look by taking the brush from this palette and applying the powder from your inner brow in upward flicks, following your natural hair growth. Next, create a structured arch before flicking downwards in to a point.
Sweep some of this pinky hued blusher up your cheek bones to get Katy’s flushed look.
From her playsuit to her eyeshadow, Katy is channelling monochrome. Get her smoky-eyed look by applying the medium shade as a base, building up with the darker and saving the lightest shade for under your brow and on the inner corner of your eye.
Two coats of this plumping mascara and you’ve got Katy’s doll-eyed look sorted.
This pinky shade suits all skin tones and complements Katy’s smoky eye – a dark lip would have been too made-up, but this makes for chic 60’s glamour.
Over to hair; once washed, prep damp hair with this backstage essential. We’re coining it as the push-up bra for your roots, meaning maximum volume for all hair types.
To get Katy’s hair think - sleek first, texture later. Angle your brush downwards and follow with this dryer; the heat will seal hair cuticles and give sleekness which you can build on.
Get Katy’s mussed-up, casual look by spraying this texturising product on to dry hair. It’ll give your hair a great lived-in feel, making it look more laid-back.
A few clicks of this handy brush dispenses enough product; just dust onto your roots then tip your head upside down and massage in for maximum volume.
Manicurist Kimmie Kyees used this turquoise shade on the shoot to add some colour to Katy’s monochrome ensemble.
