Kate’s makeup artist explains how she keeps her skin looking so bright and clean and her lips bold and plump.

Makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan for Votre Vu created this look on Kate Bosworth for the Black Rock premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. See Kelsey’s how-to and shop her product picks!

  • “I started off by massaging Attentive Creme de Jour for Sensitive Skin all over the face and neck. This cream is great because it calms the skin and replenishes moisture — especially in these weather conditions.
  • Next I applied Votre Vu Sensational Eyes Eye Primer in Medium on lids for a perfect way to keep eye shadow on all day — the perfect base.
  • To finish prepping the face for makeup I dabbed a drop of the Attentive Serum Delicat Pour Le Visage into the skin and massaged starting at the center of the face and moving outward. Kate has amazing skin so she really doesn’t need a heavy foundation. To set the foundation I dusted on Votre Vu Mineral Powder in Light all over the face.
  • For the premiere I wanted Kate’s makeup to be fresh and natural but with a bold classic red lip. The perfect base for the lipstick is the Votre Vu Champagne Kisses Lip Treatment. I didn’t line Kate’s lips so the Champagne Kisses pulled double duty by moisturizing and preventing the lipstick from bleeding out.” [Editor’s Note: Kelsey used NARS Lipstick in Jungle Red as a lip color.]
