PS: What about her iconic cat eyes?
CR: I have this really gorgeous gold cream eye shadow that I put as the base of my eye shadow. Over it goes a very, very light gray-brown shadow in the crease. After, I put a little purple into the creases. There’s a sparkly white [shadow] that goes into the inner corners of my eyes and beneath my brows. I fill in my brows a bit. Then I’ll add a [gel] liner, applied with a brush. I have this really gorgeous lash, which has a bit of a cat eye. At the end for her wedding, my makeup gets bumped up, and I wear Swarovski crystals in the middle part of my eye.
PS: Now that you know how to do her look, do you ever do it in real life when you’re going out?
CR: Oh, yeah. Her look is so great that it wouldn’t be that big of a difference if I walked out — and I often do. Like, people don’t give me any crazy looks, which is really good, because [the makeup artist] wanted her to be natural. But obviously, it’s heavier for the stage, because there are big spotlights on me.
PS: How do you take everything off and avoid breakouts from wearing so much makeup?
CR: When I get home, the first thing I do is wash my face. I take all of my makeup off with a Neutrogena wipes ($8) to make sure that all of the base gets off first. Then, I usually wash my face very thoroughly. I moisturize with Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion ($12) after I wash my face and again before I go to bed, because my skin is really dry right now.
