Here’s exactly what makeup artist Julie Harris did to create this look on Kate. She prepped Kate’s skin with Fresh Rose Water toner, Fresh Lotus eye gel and Perricone Intensive Moisture Therapy. Then she applied Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (my fave!), shade #6. “I only used a little with a foundation brush to give a sheer coverage,” Julie says. She then used Laura Mercier Camouflage Concealer #3 under Kate’s eyes.

To bring emphasis to Kate’s eyes, Julie applied liquid liner close to the upper lashes and two coats of Clinique High Impact Mascara on the top and bottom lashes. Next she added dewiness by dabbing Nars The Multiple highlighter in Copacabana on the brow bone, cheek bone and inner corner of the eyes. On Kate’s lids, she applied Nars Cream Shadow in Maracaibo, using a fluffy brush to blend it into the crease. Then she used Lancome eyeliner in Prune, smudging it close to the lower lashes and blending some of the Maracaibo shadow with small brush over the top of the the liner.

On Kate’s cheeks: Nars blush in Tuomota just under the cheek bone, applied with a cream-blush brush, and Bobbi brown Sheer Pink blush on the apples. On Kate’s lips: Nars lip liner in Tonga and Giorgio Armani Silk Lipstick in #11, a light mauve. Finally, a touch of Armani lip shimmer #1.

More NARS…

What do you think of Kate’s makeup here? Do you like the idea of lavender on the eyes this spring? Anyone got a similar shadow/liner shade to recommend to the group?

Kate Hudson makes our beauty all-stars list for one simple reason: The actress, who’s also the face of Almay, manages to pull off statement looks without ever looking like she’s wearing tons of makeup.

Last night at the premiere of the HBO film Clear History, Kate complemented her edgy Balmain dress with a smoky eye makeup look, courtesy of makeup artist Melanie Inglessis. “It always starts with the dress. The dress for tonight is short, structured and textured, and I wanted the makeup to reflect that and emphasize Kate’s eyes,” says Inglessis. “I wanted to give her a rock and roll meets feminine look to reflect both the dress and Kate’s feminine and strong personality.”

The key to Kate’s look? Keeping it simple. “With a bold, smoky eye everything else has to be simple, so I wanted her face to look fresh and dewy with beautiful sun kissed cheekbones,” Inglessis explains.

The makeup artist used three different textures to smoke out Hudson’s green eyes: pencil liner, primer and powder eye shadow. And since all three products were Almay, they’re all under $10: Almay Intense i-Color Defining Liner in Mocha for Green Eyes ($7.99), Almay Intense i-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer in Amethyst for Brown Eyes ($7.99), and Almay Intense i-Color Smoky-i Kit for Green Eyes ($7.99). Inglessis says she “built a deep smoky look by continuously blending the eyeliner, primer and shadow.” Simple enough, no?

Kate Hudson had her fans in hysterics on Friday night when she uploaded a video of her son Bingham doing her makeup. The actress took to her Snapchat page to show her followers the hilarious implications of allowing her five-year-old son to be artistically creative with her face.

The young boy begins the beauty session by gently applying pink blush to his mom’s cheeks. He then decides he wants to make his mom more bronzed and starts adding copious amounts of bronzer to her already rouged cheeks. The actress’ youngest son generously applies the product by slapping the makeup brush onto her face, which instantly causes Kate to laugh out loud at the new “avant garde” technique.

After the initial cheek coloring, Bingham moves onto eye makeup and begins by giving his mom’s eyebrows a bright pink tint. Sticking to the colorful theme, he then adds blue eyeshadow to above and below the Almost Famous star’s eyes, before finishing off the look with carefully applied pale pink lip gloss.


The actress shows that she is no diva and appears more than happy to allow her son to lather on the bright makeup throughout the beauty session. As well as posting the shots on her Snapchat story, the 37-year-old also uploaded quick snippets of the tutorial to her Instagram page writing, “My favorite kinda Friday night. For the full look and pro technique go to Snapchat KHudSnaps #TGIF #Bingo #MyLittleArtist #AvantGardeChild #SlappingTechniqueOnFire”.

But we can’t help but notice that Rani (named after her paternal grandfather, Ron) may take after Hudson’s mom, Hollywood legend Goldie Hawn. Take a peek at some of grandma Hawn’s earliest career shots.
