Katy Perry's looks on her E.T. MV are really dramatic and bright. I've been wanting to play with the colours she presented in her video because they look fun. This is the very first look taken from the orange/red mask-like eyes she had. Since it is inspired, I didn't mean to recreate her exact look and opted for something more wearable and simple. The looks will become more dramatic from here since we will be dealing with purples and blues for the second look and metallic golds and browns for the last one. I hope you stay tuned for that.

Products Used:
- Trucco Velvet Ice Eyeshadow in Orange Crush
- Trucco Velvet Ice Eyeshadow in Ruby Slipper
- Coastal Scents 88 Color Palette
- E.L.F. Eyelid Primer
- Bonnebell Eye Definer 012 (matte white eyeliner)
- Avon Gimmersticks G04 (waterproof black retractable eyeliner)
- Physician's Formula Custom Eye Enhancing Gel Cream Liner in Black
- Covergirl Lashblast Waterproof Mascara

1. Apply your primer on your lids.
2. Use white eyeliner or pencil all over the lid where you're going to pack the colour on and blend using your fingers until it's an even and thin layer. Do not put too much on or your shadows will crease faster. Just add enough so your lids look lighter.
3. Pack a true orange (Trucco Velvet Ice Orange Crush) eyeshadow on the area where you've just placed the white base with your eyeshadow brush.
4. Take a red (Trucco Velvet Ice Ruby Slipper) eyeshadow on your outer lid and blend it in the orange to produce a darker orange.
5. Use a strawberry pinkish orange (E9 from CS palette) and apply it on the crease. 
6. Use a darker red (H9 from CS palette) and apply a bit on the outer 'V' of your lid and a thin line on your crease.
7. Take a nude or white  (A1 or A9 from CS palette) shadow and use it as highlight and to soften the edges.
8. Do the final touches: apply a thick black eyeliner on your lid and waterline, fill your eyebrows, curl your lashes and apply mascara.

Enjoy! It should turn out brighter than what my pictures convey since flash pretty much washes out all the other colours I used. :D
