Kate Beckinsale Smoky Eyes

The Trick to Achieving Your Most Flattering Smoky Eye Yet

Kate Beckinsale has been all over the globe promoting Total Recall over the past few weeks, and she's been doing it with an impressive amount of flair. From gorgeous gowns to wavy chignons, the 39-year-old actress certainly knows how to dress to impress. Most recently at the London premiere, Kate opted for a sweet yet sultry makeup palette. Makeup artist Molly Stern applied baby pink tones to Kate's cheeks and lips, coupling the style with an alluring, smoked-out eye makeup look. And while Kate's multilayered shadow technique seems complicated, it's actually easier to achieve than you think.

The key is to mix and match three shadows. To do this, Stern prepped Kate's lids and brow bones with Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Peach ($24). She then used a mixture of the brand's Baked Eye Colour in Black Karat ($22), a black-gold shade with gold pearl, and Baked Eye Colour in Terracotta ($22), a rich copper, for the base. To finish, she smudged the Terracotta shade underneath Kate's eyes for a softening, flattering effect.
