Channel Your Inner Cleopatra à la Katy Perry


Katy Perry is the new queen of the Nile in her latest video for “Dark Horse,” which finally hit the web Thursday afternoon. The clip features the songstress revamping Elizabeth Taylor’s Cleopatra in the search for the perfect suitor. Truthfully, we’re fangirling over the regal, intricate makeup look for the music video crafted by Perry’s go-to beauty guru, Jake Bailey, and he couldn’t wait to share how to get the look for yourself. Consider your Halloween costume already covered!

Bailey drew an Eye of Horus over Perry’s eyes, using CoverGirl’s Bombshell Intensity Liner in Pitch Black Passion to start. He added a little shimmer from the inner corner to the middle of the lid with the brand’s Shine Shadow in Gold Goddess and Ooh La Lilac on the outer corners. Before the cream shadows dried, Bailey tapped a bit of purple glitter on top of the lilac and peach glitter on the rest of the eye. Never without her falsies, he blended the lashes with her natural ones with two coats of the Bombshell Volume Mascara.

He then focused on a flawless face with a thin layer of the Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation with a flat tipped Kabuki brush. He blended a drop of the Gold Goddess Shine Shadow into an apricot cream blush for a flush on the cheek. He finished the intricate look with a bold lip, courtesy of the Lip Perfection Lip Color in Euphoria – a fave of the pop star!
