Katy Perry's make-up artist reveals how to recreate her futuristic Met Gala look.

Singer Katy Perry's make-up artist Todd Delano has provided detailed tips on how he created the pop star's high-tech look for the Met Gala.

The 31-year-old Dark Horse singer showed up to the annual event in New York City on Monday (02May16), in a gothic, futuristic black and gold Prada gown, and attached a 1990s digital Tamagotchi pet game to the outfit for extra flare.

In addition to crafting her outfit to match the Met Gala's Manus x Machina theme, Katy bleached her eyebrows and relied on Todd's make-up expertise to help complete her futuristic look.

"For Katy’s natural, fresh complexion I started with Ready, Set, Gorgeous Foundation in 220 to the centre of her face to even out her skin tone," he explained to MTV News, adding the fact he used products from her new cosmetics line, Katy Kat Collection with COVERGIRL. "I bronzed and contoured with truBLEND Bronzer and truBLEND Blush in Medium Rose on the apples of the cheeks."

Katy's blue eyeshadow and black lips were particularly memorable, and Todd detailed exactly how he managed to pull the make up off, noting: "I used the truNAKED Eyeshadow Palette in Nudes to highlight and contour. The shades in this palette have awesome payout and work well with one another for a soft-eye look. I then continued with COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Blue Boom inside the eye water line.

"To glam up the look a bit we used a few swipes of the new Katy Kat Eye Mascara in Perry Blue, which added just the right amount of colour to the lashes and sweeps them up and out."

"For the final touch - the lips - we used Katy Kat Matte Lipstick in Perry Panther, which is both every bit fun as it is chic," he added. "This demi matte formula is perfect for a night like the Met Gala, as it keeps the lips feeling soft, but still achieves that long lasting matte look."
