How to: Natural Smoky Eye like Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale looks flawless with a natural smoky eye

Who wouldn’t want to look like Kate Beckinsale for a day? She is a talented actress, mother, and wife who looks like she hasn’t aged a day. Her makeup is always natural looking and flawless.  Here, let’s take a look at how to get her natural smoky eye that can be worn day or night.

  1. To get Kate’s natural smoky eyes, first use a soft shimmery eye shadow, like MAC shadow in Grain, all over the entire lid as your base.  Apply using a large shadow brush, also taking the color lightly under the eyes as well with the same brush to balance the eyes and add highlight under the eye.
  2. In the crease of the eye, using the same large shadow brush, add a hint of a deep shimmery bronze, like MAC shadow in Sable. Start soft and deepen little by little, while also taking the color a touch under the eye as well with the same brush.
  3. Next apply a black eyeliner, like MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder, to create that defined cat’s eye.  Start applying the pencil thinly within the eye, increasingly thickening as you slide toward the outer end of the eye.  Use a small angle brush to blend the product as close to the lash line on top as possible and to extend the line up and out on the ends to further highlight the cat eye. Take the liner a bit under the bottom lashes as well.
  4. Long lashes will finish off Kate’s ageless look. Curl your lashes, then apply at least two coats of the darkest black mascara you can find, like Dior’s Blackout Mascara. Apply to the top and bottom lashes and make sure to separate the lashes so they are not clumpy.
