Tutorial: Katy Perry Smokey Eyes

I really loved this picture of Katy Perry's makeup at a red carpet event, so I thought I would give it my best shot. Here's what I came up with, complete with blue tresses - ah, the wonders of Photoshop! I've actually had hair this color blue when I was a rebellious teenager, I kid you not.






I think this look is actually really wearable for a night out. It's dramatic without being too much. I love the blend of the black with the dark, warm brown tones. I think this would suit so many skintones and eye colors. Give it a whirl! Check out my video tutorial for the step-by-step instructions.
