Kate Walsh on David Letterman

How-To: Kate Walsh's Late Show Look

When Kate Walsh made her entrance on The Late Show With David Letterman last night, my friend and I audibly gasped. Her super glossy, retro hairstyle perfectly complemented her bright lipstick. In all, the look was very Mad Men, so naturally I'm obsessed. Here's how to get the look:

  • Blow out hair with a side part, lifting at the roots. Follow with a big curling iron, making sure the barrel isn't too close to your roots. Use a hair spray that provides both shine and hold, like Bumble & bumble Shine Spray ($34).

  • Line the entire rim of the eye with black liner (it looks like she's wearing pencil to me, but if you've mastered something else, try that) and apply a light grey eyeshadow on the lid, just until the crease. Try Sonia Kashuk Powder Partners Eye Shadow Duo in Cocktail Hour 01 ($7.99). Use your regular black mascara.
  • Sweep on a hint of peachy blush on the apples of the cheeks, like Benefit Dandelion ($28).
  • Finding the perfect orange-based red lipstick can be difficult. Experiment by mixing shades you already have, or try Sephora Maniac Long Wearing Lipstick in 09 ($12), a bright orange with red shimmer. A lip liner will help the color stay put, but any neutral color should work to prevent bleeding. Just like Dr. Addison does.

She looked fantastic! Kate also loves the show Mad Men too, so that could be where she got the inspiration for her look from :)

Very pretty... the color is sort of Grace Kelly's shade. I always thought she wore red, but it was actually a coral red.
