Recognizable by her painted face and pin-up looks, singer Katy Perry recently walked through her make-up routine—including how she dolls up her famous eyes—in the July issue of Vogue magazine. (You can find the video of Katy on Vogue’s YouTube channel.)

The singer walked through her routine, discussing how she’s downplayed her dramatic style over the past few years, going for a more “age-appropriate” look. She also demonstrates how she gets her wide-eyed look—individual false eyelashes. As she explains,

“My brows and my eyes I think are what frame my whole face. I have alright lips and alright cheekbones, but they’re no showoffs. If I can get my brows and my eyes right, that really sets the whole face.”

Perry also admitted to being “insecure about [her] skin” in years past, but has definitely been embracing a fresh-faced look. We think you look fantastic any way Katy!
