Celebrity make-up artist Jake Bailey reveals how to get Katy Perry’s red carpet-worthy, sun-kissed skin at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Taking home the award for Video of the Year, Katy looked hot enough to melt any popsicle with her bespoke St.Tropez tan.


To highlight Katy’s subtle glow, Bailey used the St. Tropez Gold Skin Illuminator all over her body to showcase her hot Californian skin.  He then finished with a dust of St. Tropez Bronzing Rocks over her face for extra radiance.



“I used the St. Tropez Gold Skin Illuminator which I love. Katy just returned from a small vacation so she had a little bit of colour so I wanted to make the most of it.  I grabbed the St. Tropez Gold Skin Illuminatorto compliment her tan and really give her a nice glow which I applied all over the body including her arms and legs. After her make-up was complete, I applied the St. Tropez Bronzing Rocks all over her face very lightly with a large powder brush to give her a nice bronze finish” explains 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 Polishto 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.

4.  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.


5.  Finally, highlight cheekbones, décolletage, arms and shins with St. Tropez Skin Illuminator.
