She certainly was a firework!
Katy Perry slayed at the Super Bowl, inside the University of Phoenix Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 1, by creating a halftime spectacle that included incredible duets (hi, Missy Elliot and Lenny Kravitz), dancing sharks, a giant tiger, and, most importantly, fierce style and beauty choices!
The “Roar” singer, 30, hit the stage in four fabulous looks custom made by Moschino’s Jeremy Scott: a flame-embellished long-sleeved top and miniskirt, a vintage-inspired crop top and flounce skirt (complete with beach ball bra top), a bedazzled jersey-style dress, and a high-slit silver gown covered in stars.
Each look was quintessential Perry—colorful and cartoonish in the best way. But there was one ultra-glam extra touch: platinum-set diamond studs with additional pave diamonds by Lorraine Schwartz. Carat count: a whopping 20!
Of course, with costumes that over the top, you need a beauty look that can compete. Enter Perry’s bouncy, ’50s-esque Barbie ponytail. To fulfill the singer’s request of the “perkiest pony you’ve ever seen,” celeb hairstylist Clyde Haygood added loads of extensions for pumped-up volume. Haygood curled the halftime performer’s tresses, slicked it back with gel for shine, then set the updo with KMS California Freeshape 2-in-1 styling and finishing spray.
The “Dark Horse” chanteuse’s makeup also referenced her classic, pinup-inspired roots. Celeb makeup artist Jake Bailey applied an elongated cat eye, glitter-dusted eyes and cheeks, and a bold red statement lip, a combo that complemented all four of Perry’s costumes. “There was absolutely no time for a touch-up in between the quick changes. It’s the Super Bowl after all!” Bailey said.
To get the look, pick up the exact products that Bailey used on the Covergirl spokeswoman: Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner in Black Onyx to create the cat eye, Full Lash Bloom by LashBlast Mascara in Very Black, Clean Glow Blush palette in Roses (using the slightly darker color in the hollows of her cheeks for dimension), and Colorlicious Lipstick in Seduce Scarlet for that statement lip.
