Golden Globes Get The Look: Kate Hudson’s Golden Glow

By  January 14, 2013

Kate Hudson looked stunning on the red carpet in a low-cut black Alexander McQueen dress at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. Even more stunning than her gown was Kate’s gorgeous glow – and we have the scoop on how to get her exact makeup and hair. Makeup artist Leslie Lopez and celebrity hairstylist David Babaii share their secrets for transforming the blonde beauty for a night of glamour.

First, we’ll start with Kate’s makeup. “The inspiration is always the dress,” said Lopez. “I wanted to create a modern interpretation of Brigitte Bardot for Kate’s makeup. I always think less is more and wanted to give her a strong eye without being overwhelming. I knew I wanted to do something with her eyes – it’s my favorite thing to highlight on Kate. I used shadow to accentuate the crease of her eyelid and liner (Almay Intense i-Color Defining Liner in Charcoal for Blue Eyes, $7.99) right above the lash line. It’s very simple, but makes the eyes pop. Her skin looked so good after using the primer (Almay Smart Shade Perfect & Correct Primer, $13.99), I used very little foundation.” For Kate’s lips, Lopez used Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss in Bellini, $7.49.

For Kate’s lovely locks, Babaii started with IT&LY’s Pure Water Drops Serum before blow drying. Next, he added IT&LY’s Pure Style Mousse Strong and used a medium round brush at the root area to add volume. He then switched to a large round brush to smooth Kate’s strands and create soft rounded edges. After drying, Babaii created a natural side part spritzing IT&LY’s Pure Volumizing Eco at the base for added lift and down the shaft for more piecey definition. For her sexy fringe he wrapped the bang area around a medium round brush spraying a small amount of IT&LY’s Pure Volumizing Eco again. With the blow dryer temperature on high, he directed heat on the brush followed by a quick blast of cool air to set. Gently he removed the brush to release the fringe. With his fingers he combed through and allowed the hair to fall naturally into place. To finish, he misted the hair with IT&LY Pure Definition Hair Spray for soft touchable hair with memory hold.
