Kate Beckinsale @ 2012 Golden Globes
69th Annual Golden Globe Awards: Kate Beckinsale
A look at Kate Beckinsale as she walked the red carpet at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California on January 15th, 2012.
On Contraband star Kate Beckinsale, a presenter at the Golden Globes, makeup artist Molly Stern focused on radiant skin, bold eyes and high-gloss lips. “Kate’s Roberto Cavalli dress was so ethereal and magical, I wanted to keep the skin looking completely luminous and create a bit of edge with the eyes. The combination of Hourglass’ Veil Mineral Primer and Illusion Tinted Moisturizer is utterly gorgeous. The foundation is sheer, blendable and buildable but still leaves skin looking translucent. I used Film Noir Lash Lacquer to give Kate’s lashes drama, depth and dimension. It’s everything you want in a red-carpet look.”
Skin: Molly began by moisturizing Kate’s skin with Natura Bisse’s The Cure Cream. She then primed with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer which creates a flawless canvas for makeup, followed by a light application of Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Sand. Molly loved the sheer finish of the foundation which allowed the British beauty’s gorgeous skin to shine through.
Cheeks: She used the bronze tone in Hourglass Illume Crème-to Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset to add warmth to her skin, and followed with the blush tone applied on the apples of her cheeks. She then dusted Nars Miss Liberty high on her cheekbone to add an extra glow.
Eyes: Molly used the bronze shade of Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy as a base, and set it with Nars Galapagos Eye Shadow, smudged deep into the lid. For an extra pop of light, she dabbed Chanel’s Blazing Gold Ombré Essential over the inner lid. Her lashes are deep and jet-black due to Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara, followed by Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer which was painted over them for an extra kick of drama.
Lips: Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème lipstick in Fresco was used as a base on Kate’s lips, followed by Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Imagine for a glistening sheen.
Her hair was styled by Renato Campora for Frederic Fekkai. Campora wanted a creative take on a classic red carpet look that focused on texture and body.
To achieve a base of texture and manageability, Renato applied a blend of the Fekkai COIFF™ Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel and the Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream throughout the hair, followed with a rough blow dry. Next, Renato used a 1 ½ inch curling iron to create loose curls, letting the curls set for 10 minutes so they fell, creating little bit of a wave. Next he separated the hair into three sections, two low pig-tails and a ponytail in the middle. All three pieces were secured with clear hair ties. Renato finished by weaving the three pieces into a high bun. He secured the look with Fekkai COIFF™ Sheer Hold Hairspray
