Katy Perry Stuns at the Grammy's in Rimmel London! AKA: Get the Look

Honestly, it always surprises me when I hear about celebrity/professional stylists and makeup artists using drug store products: I sort of give a silent cheer that the staples I've known all along are of good quality and give great results are vetted by the pros. But I was especially pleased to hear that the celebrity that the celebrity that the hubby and I thought was one of the best looking at last night's Grammy Awards, Katy Perry, achieved her gorgeous makeup look with one of my drugstore go to's, Rimmel London!

Makeup artist Jake Bailey achieved Perry's old Hollywood-inspired makeup look using products from Rimmel London (one of my absolute favorite drugstore makeup brands). To get the look, Bailey:

1. Defined Perry’s lash line with Rimmel London ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in black. Bailey then used Rimmel London’s Glam’Eyes Eyeshadow Trio in “Orion” to contour Perry’s eyes. Bailey highlighted Katy’s eyelid and brow bone with Rimmel London’s ScandalEyes Shadow Stick in “Bulletproof Beige,” and finished the eyes with a rich coat of Rimmel London’s ScandalEyes Mascara in Black.

2. Bailey perfected Perry’s skin by mixing 1/3 Rimmel London BB Cream in Light with 2/3 Match Perfection Foundation in Nude to create a base. “The BB Cream sheers the foundation out and gives it a little glow,” said Bailey. Bailey then warmed Perry’s complexion with a dusting of Rimmel London’s Lasting Finish Soft Colour Mono Blush in “Pink Rose” on the apples of Perry’s cheeks.

3. Bailey completed the look by lining Perry’s lips with Rimmel London Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lipliner in Natural, and applying a coat of Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in “Crush.”

I think she looked absolutely stunning last night, and I loved her joke about having her own eyelash line as she presented the award for Best New Artist. It's always nice to find out that celebrities are a bit down to earth (and have a sense of humor to boot). Will you be trying to recreate Katy Perry's red carpet look? Are any of the Rimmel London products Jake Bailey used for her in your current makeup stash, or do you plan on adding any now? My inquiring mind wants to know!
