While I wanted Kate Beckinsale to have darker makeup to offset the beauty of her reptilian Armani Privé gown at the ‘Total Recall’ LA premiere, her makeup artist Molly R. Stern gave her a serpent-goddess look which she describes as “edgy and undone while still looking flawless for a big Hollywood night out.”

Molly started by prepping Kate’s skin with Jurlique Rose Water Balancing Mist, then she prepped her skin for foundation by using By Terry Serum De Rose plus Arcona Eye Dew which is ideal under eye shadow and which hydrates and smoothes the area.

For her skin Molly used Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation for a sheer finish.

Laura Mercier Cream Blush in Oleander was applied to the apples of her cheeks, and dusted with NYX illuminating Bronzer in Magnetic on her high cheekbones to reflect the light.

For her eyes Molly based the lid with NYX Cream Shadow in Gunmetal and then brightened the shade by dusting the olive-green shadow from YSL 5 Colour Harmony for Eyes in Garden of Eden all over the lid up to the crease.

Next Molly popped the inside of her lid with Beauty is Life Perfect Shine Eyes in Palmery. To define Kate’s lash line, Hourglass Calligraphy Black Eyeliner was applied as a base and then she topped that off with Glam Liner Aqua Luxe by NYX in #08, which is a golden olive colour.

Kate’s lash line was lined underneath with the same olive liner to get a smudgy finish to ensure it lasted all night. Lashes were curled with Shu Uemura lash curler with two coats of Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara.

To finish off her look Molly blotted down an application of Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Canvas and topped that off with the uber-sparkling NYX Glam Lip Gloss in #07 VIP.
