Kate Beckinsale is a beauty and fashion icon (which is easily proved by the thousands of photos of her found on Pinterest – you know you’ve probably pinned her, too). Elegant and effortless, Kate always knows how to land herself on the Best Dressed list. One thing we love about the actress is her makeup, which is never overly done, but always makes the most of her gorgeous features. Because we’re a tad bit obsessed (major girl crush), we want to share our tips for how you can recreate her look for yourself.


It’s no secret that Kate is a huge fan of a flawless face. Her secret? Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. Kate knows that using a tinted moisturizer offers necessary coverage, while still allowing the skin to glow and look healthy (not cakey). Using your fingers to apply the lightweight formula is totally ok, but a foundation brush is recommended for a fool-proof application that is smooth and even. Ever noticed that Kate always has fresh, innocent, baby-doll cheeks? Get the look with a bright-pink blush that has just the slightest hint of peach, applied to the apples of the cheeks. A powder formula will work best for getting this subtle coloring.


Kate loves to wear neutral eye colors. In a special interview with the Daily Mail she confessed that her two favorites were MAC eye shadows in Vanilla and Wedge. Vanilla is a matte, creamy-white shadow, while Wedge is a matte, muted-taupe color. To get her eye makeup, line the upper and lower water lines with a brown kohl liner. Use an eye shadow shade like MAC’s Vanilla all over the lid, stopping at the crease. Take a shadow in the same shade as MAC’s Wedge and apply it from the outer crease, sweeping in. Take an angled liner brush and line the upper and lower lash lines with the same shadow. To make the eyes look bigger, take a pearly-white shadow like MAC’s Shroom and dust it in the inner corners of the eye and in the inner arch of the brow. Finish with a few coats of black mascara (according to InStyle, Kate loves Maybelline’s Great Lash Mascara).


A simple pout makes Kate’s look oh-so elegant. A peachy-pink gloss with a hint of gold shimmer is the star’s go-to shade. Our favorite is MAC’s Lustreglass Lip Gloss in Pinkarat, which looks bubble-pink in the bottle, but goes on much lighter.
