Red Carpet Beauty: Kate Winslet at the SAG Awards

kate-winslet-sag-awards Kate Winslet looked amazing tonight as she won her award for Best Supporting Actress in The Reader. She was gorgeous in this vibrant blue dress by Narciso Rodriguez. Her hair was done by Frederic Fekkai stylist Renato Campora and celebrity makeup artist Jillian Dempsey.

Jillian Dempsey played up Kate’s eyes with lots of black eyeliner, mascara and shimmering shadow paired with a soft neutral palette on her lips and cheeks. Jillian used Lancome Artliner in Noir on the upper lash line and then lightly dusted Jillian Dempsey Professional for Avon Eyeshadow Trio in Pebble Wash on the eyelid. She finished the eyes with a few coats of Lancome Oscillation Mascara in Black. For the lips, she used Serge Lutens nude lip liner and filled in the entire lip. Finally, she applied Color Fever Gloss in Engaging, a very sheer nude shade, for a high-shine pout.

As for Kate’s hair, here’s how you can get the look:

Apply Fekkai More All Day Density Mousse to wet hair for added volume. On the bottom portion only apply Fekkai Coiff Magnifique to ends for a smooth blowout and to protect hair from the heat of styling tools. Using the Fekkai Extra Large Round Brush blow dry hair and part on the right side. Once completely dry, use a one inch curling iron throughout hair to create tousled movement with dimension. Apply Fekkai Technician Glaze to ends working it through with fingers for texture that is not too heavy. Tease the top of the head ever so slightly to create a touch of height. Next pull hair back into a low ponytail. Create a loose braid and twist it around to form a bun. Secure with pins. Making a braid helps to keep the bun from appearing to severe and gives it the soft modern touch.
