Kate Gosselin didn’t exactly learn to dance on her stint on DWTS, but she did pick up some great makeup know-how from makeup artist Zena Shteysel!

Unfortunately, Kate Gosselin’s dancing skills weren’t enough to keep her on Dancing With The Stars but she’s leaving the show with some brand new makeup tips thanks to makeup artist Zena Shteysel to keep her looking glam on her own. “Kate’s great,” Zena says. “She’s fantastic to work with and a big lover of makeup.” Zena and Kate both loved getting into character for the show.

To help Kate keep her makeup organized when she’s out on her own, Zena gave Kate three of her Z Palettes. These empty, magnetic cases can hold all of Kate’s shadows, blushes, powders and concealers in one place. Plus, since the outside is clear, Kate can easily see what makeup is where. “She’s a busy mom and this helps her simplify her routine,” Zena says. “She has no time to rummage through her makeup.” Right now, Kate has plenty of neutral colors from brands like Too Faced, Urban Decay and Mac that she loaded into her Z Palettes but she’s looking to spice things up a bit. “She asked me to tell her some products and colors that she doesn’t have that I think would be good for her,” Zena says. “I’m going to recommend some bright fun colors like some purples and magentas and a rosy bright lip,” she says. “She sees, now that we got to play with these colors, that they do look good.” It’s too bad Kate’s time was cut short as Zena had a gorgeous look in mind for Kate. “I would like to try something like a 40’s classic cat eye with a red lip. It’d be really classic and beautiful,” she says. I would love to see Kate in a look like that too!

So, how did Kate look so pretty during the show? “Every commercial break we go in and we touch up,” Zena says. “We pat her down with tissues and take off the sweat and then tap her with a little power or reapply and smooth out anything that may have moved.”

Well, we won’t be seeing any more of Kate on DWTS but we will see her out and about hopefully putting some of Zena’s tips to use! You can organize your makeup like Kate by picking up one of Zena’s Z Palettes here! – Marta Topran
