British-born Kate Winslet began acting as a child, but it wasn’t until her appearance in the blockbuster Titanic that her down-to-earth beauty became famous. With her large eyes and full lips, Kate is a makeup artists dream — you can’t go wrong with this kind of symmetry. Here, Kate accentuates her lovely eyes and allows her radiant skin to shine. To get Kate’s look, follow the expert advice of New York City makeup artist Deborah Grayson
STEP 1 Begin with the eyes. Kate appears to have used liquid liner. Apply black liner on the upper lid; carefully wet a pointed brush then turn it in your pot of liner. The wetter your brush, the more translucent your line will be. Kate chose an opaque, black line. Follow your upper lash line to the end, then stop the line at the end. If you go too far, dip a Q-tip in eye makeup remover and gently dab off the end.
Apply a pearly, blue, translucent shadow to the lid with a wide, fluffy brush. Reapply the shadow on the outer segment of the lid up to the brow. (Press the brush into the outer corner of the lid.) You may even apply a third coat. This will give more dimension and color to the outer color of the eye. Using a black eye shadow powder, go over the line above your lashes to set it. Curl lashes and apply several coats of mascara to the upper lashes and one coat to the lower lashes.
STEP 2 If you like darker, fuller-looking brows like Kate does here, clean off a brown mascara brush on a tissue, then with the residue brush up your brows with the wand. This will push brow hair up and add a touch of color.
STEP 3 Use a concealer just underneath and on the inner corners of your eyes. You may want to mix it with moisturizer to keep it very light. Apply a very lightweight foundation all over the face. Dot a rouge gel stick on cheekbones and blend in light, smooth strokes, using your fingers or a sponge. (If it’s to bright, apply a drop of liquid foundation to diffuse the color.)
STEP 4 Apply a brick-coral lip pencil inside the lines of the lips. Top with a burgundy or ruby-toned lip gloss.
