Makeup, Hairstyle Trend Review: Get The Look: Katy Perry Debuts “Dark Horse” Music Video – CoverGirl Gold And Purple Glitter Egyptian Eye

Makeup, Hairstyle Trend Review: Get The Look: Katy Perry Debuts "Dark Horse" Music Video -- CoverGirl Gold And Purple Glitter Egyptian Eye

Katy Perry releases her music video for Dark Horse today, and her makeup look would make even Cleopatra jealous! The central element to this look is definitely the intricate liner.

 

This eye makeup is based on the Egyptian Eye also known as the Eye of Horus, which is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health. An appropriate look for Katy‘s regal character in this video!

According to Celebrity Makeup Artist, Jake Bailey: To create this look I used COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Liner in Pitch Black Passion #800 to draw the intricate design around her eyes. It was an adaptation of several references that I found online, but I liked this one the best. It was important that I use a long-lasting liner, as it was a long day under hot lights and I needed it to stay in place.

Once the liner was complete I added some sparkle with the Bombshell Shine Shadows. I used the Shine Shadow in Gold Goddess on the center and inner area of her lids and Ooh La Lilac on the outer corners. Before the Shine Shadow dried completely, I tapped a bright purple glitter on top of the Ooh la lilac and a peach glitter on top of the Gold Goddess areas.

I finished the look with a strip of false lashes and 2 coats of Bombshell Volume Mascara. The first coat is a rich volumizing formula that works Katy‘s own lashes into the false pair and adds extreme volume. The second end was used to add depth with a wet-looking “lacquer” finish.
When doing an intricate eye look, especially one with glitter, I always do the eyes first. There’s no point in trying to achieve a flawless complexion, cheek and lip if you’re going to be dropping shadow and glitter all over it!

Once the eyes were finished I buffed a thin layer of COVERGIRL Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation all over her skin and neck using a flat-tipped Kabuki brush to buff it out thinly and evenly. I then mixed a touch of Shine Shadow in Golden Goddess with an apricot cream blush on the back of my hand and blended it onto her cheeks and cheekbones for warmth and glow.

The look was finished with a bold blackberry lipstick called Euphoria by COVERGIRL LipPerfection – it’s one of Katy’s favorite colors!

Review: Valentine’s Day Giveaway, Video: Skin & Co Roma Truffle Therapy Boosting Anti-Aging Serum – Tell Us Your Beauty Love Story

Review: Valentine's Day Giveaway, Video: Skin & Co Roma Truffle Therapy Boosting Anti-Aging Serum - Tell Us Your Beauty Love Story

When we think of truffles during one of the most romantic times of the year, what comes to mind? You might think of rich, decadent chocolates. But for us beauty addicts, we think of the next big thing in anti-aging skincare.

Introducing Skin & Co Roma and their amazing beauty love story. With an ideology of making pure, natural skincare from ingredients found in Umbria, Italy, over 100 years of family tradition and know-how has made Skin & Co Roma a luxury skincare line with a rustic feel.

Gabriel Balestra calls himself the “Co-Founder” of Skin & Co Roma, out of respect to his grandmother for creating the entire line before she even knew it. Back when she opened up her
first emporium with her husband in Umbria, she would mix and perfect essential oils that she
sold to the locals in town.

It wasn’t until she had her Dolce Vita moment, when tinseltown’s elite came wandering into the store while on location for the movie Roman Holiday. After that, Gabriel’s grandmother became
known for her natural skincare among Hollywood’s leading ladies, primarily for using one of the
most expensive extracts in the world: truffles.

Gabriel has now dedicated his life to finishing what his grandmother started — bringing the amazing benefits of truffle oil to men and women all over the world. And these aren’t just any
truffles. Gabriel soon learned after years of working with scientists that his grandmother only used truffles during a certain time, season and location — right from the family farm in Umbria.

Through extensive research and studying his grandmother’s notes, diaries and photos, Gabriel
has made it possible to carry on her legacy for years to come.

The Truffle Therapy Boosting Anti-Aging Serum contains superoxide dismutase, an enzyme found in truffles that promotes cellular turnover, and is one of the most powerful antioxidants that reduces free radical damage. The skin becomes plump with hydration thanks to the amazing truffle anti-aging magic. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced with this paraben- and mineral oil-free serum, ideal for all skin types and tones. So everyone can enjoy a little piece of Italy.

Now you can try the truffle experience at home! We’re giving away 10 TRUFFLE THERAPY Boosting Anti-Aging Serums!

All you have to do to be entered to win is SHARE this giveaway on Twitter, Facebook and/or Instagram using #TruffleLove, and tell us your own personal beauty love story. Has your grandmother taught you a timeless beauty secret? Did your mother ever give you some of the best beauty advice to date from her homeland?

Let us know and make sure to follow @BeautyStat and @SKINandCO on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

And make sure to tune into QVC on Tuesday, February 11th to see Skin & Co Roma make their home shopping debut at 8PM. Check out the TRUFFLE THERAPY Boosting Anti-Aging Serum on QVC HERE!

Beauty News Review, Video: New Beauty Technology Adds Sensors To Eyeshadows, Nail Polish And False Eyelashes To Control Gadgets, Devices

Beauty News Review, Video: New Beauty Technology Adds Sensors To Eyeshadows, Nail Polish And False Eyelashes To Control Gadgets

The future of cosmetics is here! With just a blink of an eyelash or the flick of a finger nail, we’ll be able to control technology.

The Daily Mail reported back in October 2013 that a Brazilian computer scientist has combined conductive materials and wireless tags with everyday beauty items including eyeshadow, eyeliner, false eyelashes and nails.

Beauty News Review, Video: New Beauty Technology Adds Sensors To Eyeshadows, Nail Polish And False Eyelashes To Control Gadgets

The project called Beauty Technology means wearers can blink, wink or press their fingernails on certain surfaces to control different gadgets and even power motors in drones. The introduction of this new technology was introduced by computer scientist Katia Vega, and was demonstrated at the Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces conference at St Andrews University earlier in October.

Beauty News Review, Video: New Beauty Technology Adds Sensors To Eyeshadows, Nail Polish And False Eyelashes To Control Gadgets Fake eyelashes were metalized to capture the blinking motion; a conductive material was used as eyeliner to connect the eyelashes with the wearable device. Blinklifier uses LEDs to create the blinking patterns in the headpiece and is prototyped using an Arduino microcontroller

She has created the Blinklifier system, adding tiny sensors to powered eyeshadow. She then created false eyelashes coated in a metal solution attached to the eye by stickers coated in conductive ink. When a wearer blinks or winks for longer than half a second, the sensors connect with the metalized eyelashes and conductive ink to complete a low-voltage circuit.

Beauty News Review, Video: New Beauty Technology Adds Sensors To Eyeshadows, Nail Polish And False Eyelashes To Control Gadgets
Beauty Technology Nails are false nails fitted with Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) tags, small magnets or conductive polish. When embedded with tags, the nails can be held near RFID readers to carry out a range of tasks including opening doors, for example, or using the tags in place of bus or concert/movie tickets.

But, is all of this cosmetic technology safe? Vega explained:

“We faced the issue that though the ink we were using is a safe material to have around the body, it is not specifically approved for use on the skin.”

“‘Even more, for using it as eyeliner as this product is soluble to water, the humidity of the eyes and skin could cause issues for the wearer. Thus, we created stickers that look like makeup, they are conductive and easy to remove from skin.”
