Look Great From Behind Like Kate Hudson With THIS Exercise

OK!: What was your inspiration behind her look tonight?

Melanie Inglessis: "It always starts with the dress. The dress for tonight is short, structured and textured and I wanted the makeup to reflect that and emphasize Kate’s eyes. I wanted to give her a rock and roll meets feminine look to reflect both the dress and Kate’s feminine and strong personality. With a bold, smoky eye everything else has to be simple, so I wanted her face to look fresh and dewy with beautiful sun-kissed cheekbones. I then focused on her eyes and built a deep smoky look by continuously blending the eyeliner, primer and shadow. I coated the top and bottom lashes twice with mascara to add a little more drama and complete the smoky eye. I kept the lip simple with a pale pink to pull the look together and really draw attention to the eyes.”

OK!: Which other beauty trends are you loving right now?

MI: "I’m loving a bold lip, beautiful strong pigmented colors, bright coral, fuchsia pink, strong pigments. I am a big fan of bright with a really strong, long-lasting pigment. It’s easy, I feel that you can have very little anything else. When I go out, I have very little makeup, but a bold lip can pull a look together."

Inglessis used the following products for Kate’s red carpet look (all available at drugstores):
