Get the Kate Upton Look

So you like Kate Upton, do you? Her hair, her clothes, her makeup -- oh yes, her makeup. So glamourous. So beautiful. So...well, perfect.

Good for you (and us! and everyone!), we got the woman behind her red-carpet looks, makeup artist extraordinnaire,Tracy Murphy, to spill all her dirty secrets.

From Tracy:

This look is all about understated glamour.  I wanted to really focus on her eyes and show off her natural, megawatt beauty.  All makeup by COVERGIRL.

Kate has fabulous skin!  I started with CGsmoothers BBcream to prime, cover and protect the skin. Get her glow by dusting a little bit of TRUblend Minerals Bronzer in Natural Bronze evenly on the face and neck.  And for a pop of color, apply Cheekers Blush in Classic Pink on the apples of the cheeks. 



Kate has (seriously) the most incredible blue eyes.  They are stunning on their own, but we like to enhance them.  I started by lining the top and bottom of the eyes with Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Brown Blaze. I added a light wash of Eye Enhancers 1-Kit shadows in Bedazzled Biscotti on her lids.  I wanted her eyes to be BIG, so I applied 5 coats of the Clump Crusher by LashBlast in Very Black on the top and bottom lashes.  To frame these sexy eyes, I filled in the eyebrows as needed with the Brow & Eyemakers Pencil.

To finish Kate’s red carpet look, I applied a bit of LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Blush Twist.


And there you have it! We're currently on coat 4 out of 5 of Clump Crusher Mascara over here and can only hope you catch up soon!
