There’s a reason Hollywood actress Kate Hudson moved from being an indie movie darling to gracing the pages of Vogue in just a few years time. Hudson has that certain je ne sais quoi. She first captured our attention as 60’s hippie it-girl Penny Lane in Almost Famous back in 2000, and since then has had countless roles in box office rom-com hits, and a recurring role as on the hit show Glee as dance teacher Cassandra July.
Now a 33-year old mother of two, Hudson is still looking as fabulous. So fabulous, in fact, that she was chosen as the face for Almay beauty products back in 2010.
This past Sunday at the 70th Golden Globes awards, Hudson dazzled us once again. Clad in a black, gold embroidered Alexander McQueen gown, Hudson looked smashing with her Brigitte Bardot-inspired eye makeup, done by makeup artist Leslie Lopez. Although colorful dresses are usually the norm at awards’ ceremonies, black was a hot choice on the GG red carpet this year. Pop singer Katherine McPhee, and actresses Salma Hayek, Eva Longoria and Nicole Kidman also donned classic black at the awards ceremony.
Fortunately, you don’t have to be a high profile Hollywood actress to get Hudson’s look. Whether you are going out on a date or just having a night out with the girls, you can look classic and stunning just by wearing black and applying a few of these makeup tips:
Apply a primer to improve makeup coverage and to make it long-lasting. Leslie Lopez used Almay Smart Shade Perfect & Correct Primer. Next, apply a mousse in light/medium, such as Almay Smart Shade Mousse Makeup. Finally, apply a coral blush, such as Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush.
To get Kate’s strong, shimmering eyes, apply a liquid shadow and color primer in nude for green eyes, such as Almay Intense i-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer, apply a defining liner in charcoal for blue eyes. Apply eye shadow to the crease of your eyelid and liner right above the lash line. As the finishing touch, apply a volumizing mascara in midnight for hazel eyes, like Almay’s Intense i-Color Volumizing mascara.
For the piece de resistance, use a lipgloss in a pink shade like bellini, such as ¨Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss in Bellini
Et voila! You are ready to impress your boyfriend, your friends, or whoever your fans are!
