For the premiere of “Black Rock” at the Sundance Film Festival, makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan for Votre Vu created the Kate Bosworth’s look for her press events at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Deenihan gave us the step-by-step tutorial, as well as the products used to create Kate’s glamorously chic makeup.
Kelsey prepped Kate’s face by using a combination of different Votre Vu products to create the perfect canvas ready for the makeup application.
- She started off by massaging Votre Vu “ATTENTIVE Creme de Jour for Sensitive Skin” all over the face and neck. This cream is great because it calms the skin and replenishes moisture – especially in these weather conditions.
- To keep the under-eyes moisturized, she lightly smoothed into the skin Votre Vu “Tout le Monde Antioxidant Eye Gelee.”
- Next she applied Votre Vu Sensational Eyes Eye Primer in Medium on lids for a perfect way to keep eye shadow on all day – the perfect base.
- To finish prepping the face for makeup Kelsey dabbed a drop of the “Attentive Serum Delicat Pour Le Visage” into the skin and massaged starting at the center of the face and moving outward.
Kelsey says Kate has amazing skin so she really doesn’t need a heavy foundation. To set the foundation she dusted on Votre Vu Mineral Powder in Light all over the face. She adds that “for the premiere I wanted Kate’s makeup to be fresh and natural but with a bold classic red lip. The perfect base for the lipstick is the Votre Vu Champagne Kisses Lip Treatment. I didn’t line Kate’s lips so the Champagne Kisses pulled double duty by moisturizing and preventing the lipstick from bleeding out.”
