Wanna be Katy Perry from her California Gurls video for Halloween this year? Here’s the How-To …

Wig Out

To achieve Katy Perry’s California Gurls look, hair and makeup are key. Look for a lavender or bright blue Cleopatra-style wig or any medium-length blue, lavender or purple-pink wig with bangs, and you’ll be halfway to your goal.

Brighten Up

Keep your makeup fun and colorful. Brush some bright pink powder on the apples of your cheeks, then use the same bright pink blush and apply it onto your eyelids as shadow. Use a black liquid liner to sketch a thick glamour line along the upper lid of each eye with a long upturned tail at the end. Then use a soft black liner pencil to sketch along your lower lash line.

Katy’s eyebrows can be imitated with a brown cake liner and an angled brush. Apply a drop of water and sketch in a dense, sharply angled arch over your own brows. Finally, a touch of super pink lip color will finish off the look.

Hot Pants

As for your outfit, if you’re not comfortable in a colorful pink bikini top (or it’s just too cold out to wear something like that), cut the collar off of a bright T-shirt, wear a pair of cute hot pants and voila! (You can also get a rainbow-colored ’80s style prom dress and pink tights to achieve one of the looks from the video.) You’re a California Gurl! Best of all, the candy you collect will only accentuate your look, since the concept for the video is based on one of Katy’s fave board games: Candyland!
