Not only did Kate Beckinsale rock the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, she actually looked like a party all her own. And a really stellar party, at that. She donned a black, strapless Monique Lhuillier gown beaded in metallics in an almost firework-like design and looked stunning. Makeup artist Molly Stern went with a sexy, understated look using Rimmel London products. With her hair in a messy ponytail up-do, her subtle, gorgeous makeup was an outstanding pairing to give her an easy, sexy look.
To give Kate her lovely glow, Stern prepped her skin with Steve De Rose Ultra-Glow Double Serum By Terry ($120, amazon.com). Then, to even out her skin tone, she used Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation ($86.70, amazon.com). As a base for Kate’s blush, Stern used Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiant Shimmer Touch ($12.99, amazon.com) in Peach Glow, which she topped with Laura Mercier Cream Blush in Rosebud ($24, amazon.com). Then she brushed Rimmel Lasting Finish Soft Colour Blush in Santa Rose ($5.95, amazon.com) on the apples of Kate’s Cheeks.
Kate’s eyes were a subtly beautiful khaki color. For her shadow, Stern started with Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick in Bulletproof Beige ($8.99, amazon.com), which she gave depth to with NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Paramaribo ($34, amazon.com). For eyeliner, Stern used Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Black ($9.99, amazon.com) to line close to Kate’s top lashline and right below her lower lashline. Then she used Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Nude ($10.49, amazon.com) to line Kate’s water line. Finally, she finished the look with a few swipes of Rimmel ScandalEyes Show Off Mascara in Black ($12.99, amazon.com).
To give pink her gorgeous lips, Stern first used Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Pink Blush ($6.99, amazon.com) and topped it off with Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss in Always Lovely ($7.06, amazon.com).
For an evening out, especially in a stunning, eye-catching dress, something sexy and subtle can be perfect for makeup. This look in peaches, pinks, and beiges brought out Kate Beckinsales natural beauty and complemented her dramatic dress.
