So many people are afraid of adding edge to their beauty looks for the day because they think it may be "too much", but trust me, it won't! All you need is the perfect balance of an everyday hairstyle, the righth amount of liner/mascara, and the right lip color. I especially love Katy Perry's edgy beauty look is a great day to night look because you can easily add on and take off to perfect the look for the occassion. All you need to recreate this look is a brush, a ponytail holder, and bobby pins for the hair and a bold or nude lipstick, mascara, liner, and darker toned eye shadows.
  1. Begin by brushing all your hair up into a high ponytail secured by a ponytail holder.
  2. Create any type of bun you would like. A topknot can be made by wrapping your hair tightly in circles and securing with bobby pins or a big ballerina bun by using the sock bun method.
  3. Now start with a clean face and apply any foundation and concealer if needed.
  4. Add a primer to your lids and a apply a highlight color right on your brow bone. Then apply a dark grey smokey color to your lower lids up into the crease. Be sure to blend!
  5. Apply black liner to your lashline and smudge lightly with an eyeliner brush or your fingers. Apply liner to your tightline and smudge a bit of the eyeshadow onto the bottom for a more nighttime look.
  6. Add a little drama to your brows by filling them in with a bit of eyeshadow. Brush your eyebrows afterwards so it won't be too harsh.
  7. Apply a primer to your lips and apply a nude color to keep the look daytime and swap the nude out for a bold color such as red for a night look.
Do not ever be afraid to try out an edgy beauty look for the day, yes it will stand out, but it will definitely be in a good week! Try making the look more you by adding or taking away any of the steps. Let me know in the comments below if you try out the look!
