Katy Perry won her first official Moonman at last night’s VMAs and looked like a vision of lavender while doing so. Obviously not a natural hue, Katy managed to pull off her purple do with a beautifully tanned complexion, thanks to St. Tropez.
Celebrity make-up artist Jake Bailey knows Katy’s usually fair skin needed a boost with her new hair colour, so he used St. Tropez Gold Skin Illuminator on her body to create a golden glow. Then, using Bronzing Rocks, he created a sun kissed look on her face for a subtle yet gorgeous tan.
“Katy just returned from a small vacation so she had a bit of colour, and I wanted to make the most of it. I grabbed the Gold Skin Illuminator to compliment her tan and really give her a nice glow, which I applied all over the body, including her arms and legs. Once her make-up was complete, I applied the St. Tropez Bronzing Rocks all over her face very lightly with a large powder brush,” says Bailey.
To recreate Katy’s look at home follow tips from St. Tropez Skin Finishing expert, Fiona Locke:
1. For an extra smooth finish ensure that you have prepared your legs with St. Tropez Body Polish to remove any dry skin, focusing on the knees, ankles and feet.
2. St. Tropez Everyday Perfect Legs is a quick and easy way to help hide imperfections on the legs and give an airbrushed effect. Start by applying the Gradual Tan Everyday Body lotion in the white pump, smoothing evenly over the leg and blending up over the knee and gently down onto the feet.
3. Shimmering St. Tropez Bronzing Rocks provide the perfect skin finish to a St Tropez tan, adding smooth, golden bronze glow. Apply to the face and décolletage with a soft brush and blend over the contours.
4. Finally, highlight cheekbones, décolletage, arms and shins with St. Tropez Skin Illuminator.
