This week's fab face is the stunning Katy Perry, who embodies the best of cult beauty buys at a steal. After all, if your beauty routine was as crazy as hers, you wouldn't want to fork out the big bucks for products that wouldn't match your next look, would you?! Read on for more on Katy and our amazing and affordable product picks for her ever-evolving style!
Katy Perry spent a long time chasing her dreams before becoming the pop princess she is today. After being dropped by multiple record labels, she finally found her feet with hit songs 'I Kissed a Girl' and 'Hot n Cold' in 2008, proving perseverance works! Since then, she has become renowned for her spirited singles including 'California Girls', 'Firework' and 'Teenage Dream' as well as her more soulful tunes 'Thinking of You', 'The One That Got Away'- and more recently 'This is the Part of Me' (seemingly released in conjunction with her highly speculated marriage split from Russell Brand).
Today, Katy's latest venture into film, 'Katy Perry: Part of Me', is set to be released in the States. Luckily for us Aussies, it has already opened here - bb's Bridget went and saw the film last night and has since declared her love for Miss Perry! We have always adored Katy's crazy fashion sense too. Is there anyone else that can pull off nearly every kind of coloured hair the rainbow has to offer? Her style - which also references multiple genres, but is most notably Lolita-esque - is also a huge pot of beauty inspiration just waiting to explode! Read on for our product tips for Miss Perry, that won't break the bank!
Katy loves herself a bold pout (and hair and eyes and clothes and shoes!) But our favourite colour on Perry, especially when she is rocking her darkest shade of locks, is bright pink. Searching for the same shade? Look no further than Savoir Faire's range of Mini Lipsticks. The Showgirl shade (how appropriate is the name?) is a bright and vibrant pink that will add warmth to your face and draw all the attention to your lips! Plus it is only $7.50 in our online store!
Katy is also not one to shy away from bold eyes either! While she likes to rock hers with a colourful pout at the same time, we recommend choosing one over the other for a more wearable 'everyday' look. If you choose to accentuate your eyes, you can't go past the Eylure Ready to Wear 140 false lashes which are only $11.95 from our online store. Plus, they come with a reusable sticky strip, for multiple wears. Even Katy herself loves Eylure, having partnered with them to produce her very own, wild limited edition lashes!
Long time fan, Katy proudly admits to using Palmers Cocoa Butter moisturiser on her bod to keep it smooth, soft and smelling divine. Whilst we love their body lotion, our current Palmer's fave is their Night Renewal Cream. With its rich formula, it hydrates, plumps and smooths skin, whilst also sinking in speedily - a fantastic (and often hard to come by) combination!
It is no secret that Katy loves the colour purple! Her campaign for her first fragrance was based around the feminine but moody shades, and we are also loving these colours for winter! Our top purples are all polishes right now - it is simply one of the easiest ways to wear colour! Top of the purple picks? Mode's Purple Glitter Enamel (pictured far right) which we are betting Katy would LOVE! Stay tuned for more of our fave purple beauty trends soon!
Do you love Katy? Do you plan on seeing her new flick? One thing is for sure, her tunes sure are fun to sing along to. Maybe now it is time to dance to the tune of her beauty style too? I'll be rocking a little more purple from now on... How about you? - Lauren
