I love this burgundy-lidded look on Almay Global Brand Ambassador Kate Hudson at the “Clear History” premiere last night in Los Angeles. The starlet rocked an edgy, structured Balmain dress and a stunning makeup look. Inspired by the texture and drama of the dress, makeup artist Melanie Inglessis created a strong, smoky eye look with a youthful dewy glow for Hudson.
“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. 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. I then focused on her eyes and built a deep smoky look by continuously blending the eyeliner, primer and shadow. I coated the top and bottom lashes twice with mascara to add a little more drama and complete the smoky eye. I kept the lip simple with a pale pink to pull the look together and really draw attention to the eyes.”
