The Look: Kate Beckinsale Inspired



I was so pleased when @cldixon1 requested that I do a Kate Becksinsale makeup because Kate always looks stunning on the red carpet. For this look I didn’t focus on one particular photo of Kate; instead, I drew inspiration from several photos where she had a subtle brown smokey eye, peachy-pink glowing cheeks and pink sparkly lips. Here’s what I did, I hope you enjoy!

Face: In all of the photos I looked at Kate’s skin looked quite glow-y, so I added a drop of Revlon Photoready Skinlights in Pink Light to my Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation, and applied this mixture to my face using fingertips. I then concealed underneath my eyes with Maybelline Dream Lumi Touche Concealer, and powdered through the center of my face with my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light.

Eyes: First I upper lash line and water line with Mac’s Eye Kohl in Teddy. Then, taking my Urban Decay Naked Palette, I applied Sin all over my lids, and then applied Buck to my crease to add depth. To smoke out the liner I applied a mixture of Smog and Darkhorse to my upper lash line using a smudge brush, and applied Smog by itself on my lower lash line. For a wide-eyed effect I applied a small amount of Virgin to the inner corners of my eyes. To complete the eye look I applied several coats of Maybelline The Falsies Mascara to my top and bottom lashes.

Cheeks: To contour my cheeks I applied Jouer’s Mattifying Bronzer in Sunswept underneath my cheek bones and on my temples. Next, to achieve Kate’s warm, glowing cheeks I applied Le Metier de Beaute’s Creme Fresh Tint for Lip and Cheek in Coral Nymph to the apples of my cheeks, and then tapped a bit of the Revlon Photoready Skinlights onto my cheek bones, right above where I placed the blush.

Lips: For a pretty, glossy pout I applied Bareminerals Marvelous Moxie Gloss in Heartbreaker. For added sparkle [and because I read that Kate wore this to a premiere] I applied a bit of the Nyx Glam Lip Gloss Aqua Luxe in 07 VIP to the center of my lips.
