// GET THE LOOK
We get a exclusive breakdown on Kate's sexy strong look from Los Angeles based makeup artist Coleen Campbell-Olwell.
This inspiration behind Kate's look had a little '90's feel to it. Strong lip, beautiful skin, a subtle eye and of course a strong brow!
Skin is really the most important start to my makeup process... it sets the foundation for everything else.
I prepped Kate's skin by tapping on Kate Somerville Oil Free Quench, it's gives the surge of hydration but it super lightweight , I followed with Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizer SPF.
To even out Kate's skin I chose to use Kate CC Somerville Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 50 in the light shade. It brightens the skin with a light coverage.
To emphasise her cheekbones I dotted on Smashbox Contour Stick in "Contour" just below her cheekbones and blended with a dampened beauty blender.
To create a soft pink berry flush I swirled on Lancome Blush Subtil Pallete in Menage a Trois onto the apples of her cheeks
To add subtle shimmer to the tops of her cheekbones I dotted on three dots of Armani Fluid Sheer in #2 on each side and blended outward with my middle finger.
Next were her brows. My favourite pencil is Diorshow - BrowStyler in Universal Brown. I just filled in, shaped and brushed them through with a brow brush.
I wanted to keep her eyes modern with a touch of color. I started with the shadow Diorshow - Fusion Mono in Meteore, a shimmery copper brown shade all over the top lid just above the crease and along the lower lashes. Then I added the Diorshow - Fusion Mono in Millenium (a green shimmer) to the outer part of the top lid and the outside bottom line. I blended Sephora Waterproof Contour Eye Pencil in Cocoa along her waterline and along the top lash line and then used Sephora Waterproof Contour Eye Pencil in "Go For A Ride" along the outer top and bottom lash line and smudged it in with the shadows.
I brushed on two coats of Chanel Le Volume de Chanel in black to really lengthen and add volume since we don't use individual lashes on Kate.
For her lips I brushed on a deep berry shade by Makeup Forever in Satin Black Current and lined with a warm lip liner by MAC in Mahogany.
