Get her look!

She’s starred in some of our favorite blockbusters, but we’re not just fans of Cate Blanchett’s work. We’re also smitten with her makeup! Join us as we recap four of her recent beauty looks and show you how to recreate them at home.

Ravishing in red

Cate’s look is typically subdued, and it’s rare that you find her rocking a bold lip, but we spotted Miss Blanchett rocking this pretty pout at an event and had to give her props for leaving her lip comfort zone.

Cate Blanchett's red lipstick look |

  1. For flawless, glowing skin, use a tinted moisturizer over the entire face like Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer in Fair 1.
  2. Set with a translucent loose powder like Sephora Collection Smoothing Translucent Setting Powder. Dust all over the face as needed to set the tinted moisturizer and any areas of extra shine.
  3. Dust the entire lid from lash line to brow bone with a Champagne shimmer eyeshadow like Revlon’s Sunlit Sparkle.
  4. Use mascara on the upper lid only, emphasizing the outer lashes and building incredible length. Go for several layers for even longer length. Try Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara.
  5. The focus on Cate in this look is the stunning red lip stain. Apply Three Custom Color Specialists Ballet Russe Lipstick using a lip brush for precise application and definition and blot for a matte finish — no lip liner needed! You can even use a dash on the cheeks for a little sheer pop of color on the apples.
