Dark Horse Makeup Look

I am totally head over heels with the video for Dark Horse by Katy Perry. The wigs, the dancers, the song and especially that makeup!

So after two days of gel liner migraines, I managed to pay homage to this look. I would say recreate but that level of genius cannot be replicated.

The shadows are very simple. It is just gold and purple and you don’t need to worry about blending because the liner will cover it up. The liner on the other hand it a different story…I attempted this look yesterday and absolutely failed, but this time I just took my time and tried not to smash anything in rage and it went ok. I use Mac Fluidline in Blacktrack with a Mac small liner brush.

I love the hieroglyphics eyeliner so much that I am tempted to steal if for my everyday makeup look and just rock the ultimate in vintage eyeliner. Eff the 1940s flick, it’s all about the 3000AD hieroglyph.

Katy looks so bomb in this video and I just can’t get over that grill. I had to improvise with mine.

All in all, majuh snaps to Katy Perry’s makeup artist for the video, Jake Bailey. Girls all around the world are gonna be punching their mirrors in gel eyeliner rage because of you, b.

I would love to see how other people got on with this! Hit me up in the comments if you’ve attempted it too.
