Katy Perry Inspired Look

YAY! My first post. Finally got some motivation and did this Katy Perry inspired look. Katy's makeup is usually a nice light eye with thick winged eyeliner, some falsies, and a bright lip.
Here's a step by step on how to achieve her flawless look:

1. Prime the eye with a base primer to help shadows to stick to the lid.
2. Apply a light beige color all over lid from lashline to browbone.
3. On the third outer part of your lid, apply a shimmery taupe.
4. Blend the taupe into the crease and upwards using a peachy/apricot color.
5. Going back to the inner half of the eye, apply a nice frosty champagne color to really make the eyes pop!
6. Using the tip of a flat brush, take a broze color and apply it underneath the lower lashline.
7. Apply a thick line of eyeliner, preferably using a liquid or cream formula, and wing it out.
8. If you have false lashes, apply those. If not no worries! Apply 2-3 coats of mascara for a nice thick lash look.
9. Apply your foundation, pink blush, and a bright lip color to finish off your look!
