Celebrity hairstylist artist Mara Roszak created Kate Beckinsale’s look for the Total Recall premiere in Los Angeles. Taking inspiration from Kate’s structured dress, Roszak created a texturized look for the red carpet. Roszak described Kate’s look as “edgy and undone, with an effortless feel.”
Get Kate’s hair in three simple steps:
Prep and Texturize- Achieving the undone quality of Kate’s hair relies on creating texture while preventing flyaways. Start by evenly applying John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse ($5.99 at drugstores) through towel-dried hair to tame frizz, boost shine and build texture. For added volume, spray roots with a texturizing spray and rough dry.
Secure the Style- Next, twist small sections of hair to create tousled texture. Once hair is completely dry, gently tease the crown for a bit of height. Next, pull hair back create a loose braid. Tuck the ends under and pin in place with bobby pins, crossing the pins to secure the look and make sure the braid stays in place. Allow pieces in the front to fall out and frame the face.
Polish and Perfect- To finish the look, spray John Frieda Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray ($5.99 at drugstores) on your fingertips and pinch sections while rubbing your fingers together on the hair to add more texture and break up the look. Then in an even, all-around motion, mist a thin coat of hair spray to set the look.
After your hair is perfectly set using Rozak’s steps, use my steps to get her makeup look as well:
Using a liquid foundation like Make Up For Ever’s Face and Body ($40 at Sephora), apply foundation with a damp sponge, I love the Beauty Blender ($19.95 at Sephora), all over the face.
Apply a cream blush to the apples and/or cheekbones like NARS The Multiple ($39 at Sephora) in shade Orgasm. Blend the color well with the sponge.
Apply a cream shadow in a cool shimmer gray, like Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream ($23 at Sephora) color 2 Steel, from the lashes to just below the crease with a flat shadow brush like Sigma’s E55 ($9 at SigmaBeauty.com).
With a clean blending brush, like Sigma’s E40 ($11 at SigmaBeauty.com) blend the crease so there is a soft fade of color just above the crease.
Using a liner/pencil brush like Sigma’s E30 ($9 at SigmaBeauty.com), pull this color up beyond the lashes to create a ‘winged’ or cat eye shape. The idea is to create this shape with the shadow alone and not a hard liner.
Use a black liner with a metallic inflection like the Sephora Collection Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in 09 Glitter Black ($12 at Sephora). The black will provide a hard line and contrast against the gray, while the shimmer will reflect light.
Apply the cream shadow within the lower lashes with the liner/pencil brush from previous step.
Line the lower water line with a bronze pencil like the Lorac Eye Shadow/Liner in shade Paparazzi ($18 at Sephora). This also follows the shimmer effect with silver metallic inflections.
Apply a deep black mascara like Rimmel’s ScandalEyes in 003 Extreme Black ($6.99 at Ulta).
Because the emphasis is on the eyes, the lips were kept neutral by sweeping a light gloss over the lips. Try Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss in Crystal Lilac ($7.49 at Ulta).
Set the t-zone with a powder like Make Up For Ever Super Matte Loose Powder ($26 at Sephora) using a large powder brush like Sigma’s F30 ($19 at SigmaBeauty.com).
Voila! You’re done and looking like a million bucks with glistening eyes and fantastic hair!
