Kate Collage

When this Katie needs inspiration, she turns to her dream team of celebrity Kates – Kate Winslet, Kate Bosworth, and Katy Perry.

I like to think of these three as my style spirit animals. Kate Winslet radiates that classic romantic beauty, Kate Bosworth is always on trend with the latest in modern makeup, and Katy Perry goes all out with color and makes a statement every time. These three have three very distinct different styles, but they’re all on top of their game in their respective categories. It’s good to know how to channel each one so you have a well-rounded beauty arsenal! Read on for my formula to copying each of their signature looks.

Classic Romantic Look Checklist:

I’ve been in love with Kate Winslet’s face since she first looked up from underneath that fierce hat in Titanic. She radiates timeless beauty. Her romantic look is extremely versatile and can work everywhere from the mall to the red carpet. To me, the star of this look is subtlety. After dusting on the Mineral Pressed Powder to even out your complexion, softly sweep on the Sugar Plum blush to create Kate’s rosey glow. Soft sweeps of a bronze shadow from the Sweet 16 Color Eyeshadow gives the perfect hint of romantic shimmer. Line your lower lashes with Black Jumbo Pencil and smudge for a blended look. Apply the white liner to your waterline to open the eye and create the doe eyed look. Apply mascara and false lashes for to glam it up to the next level. Finish with Creme Brulee lip pencil and you’re good to go! To match Kate Winslet’s head to toe style, sweep your hair into a soft updo style like a loose high bun. Spray with a flexible hold hair spray to keep that romantic look! Pair this with a strapless floor length dress and you have reached classic beauty perfection.

Modern Trendy Look Checklist:

Kate Bosworth is a serious style icon. She can rock a bold trend without looking tacky. She strikes that delicate balance of statement and glamour without going overboard. To channel her modern trendy look, I contoured my skin using the Cover Up Pro sticks, set it with Mineral Pressed Powder, and dusted on Honey Bun blush for a little color. I applied mascara and false lashes, but did not add any eyeshadow. The star of this look is really the lipstick – which is perfectly on trend. I used Orange Love lipstick to steal her look. Pair this trendy look with a dress in a bold solid color like cobalt blue to really add a high fashion kick!

Katy Perry Inspired: Colorful

Colorful Statement Look Checklist:

Katy Perry takes color to a whole new level. Unafraid to make a loud statement, Katy often pairs a bright lip with a colorful eye. She makes her own rules and I love it! Punching up her look to one step beyond traditional trends is what she does best. To do the same, I really focused on the eyes and the lips with this look. To make sure my eyeshadow stayed on flawlessly, I applied Eyeshadow Primer before starting the rest. I then lined my top lid with Jumbo Eye Pencil in Bikini Time and my inner rim with Jumbo Eye Pencil in Pool Party. I decorated my lids with purple and green shades from the Haute 16 Color Eyeshadow Palette. To pack a big punch with my pout, I applied lipstick in Vivid Pink. To continue the colorful statement theme in the rest of your outfit, don’t be afraid to wear something loud. I channeled my inner Katy Perry with a hot pink polka dot dress. Go big or go home! 😉
