Kate Hudson's make-up inspired by outfit

Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson's make-up artist has revealed the secret to the star's gorgeous glow.

The Hollywood actress stunned in a blue Balmain frock as she attended the premiere of HBO's Clear History in Los Angeles last week.

Kate's make-up artist Melanie Inglessis has revealed how she decided on the star's beauty look to complement the head-turning outfit.

"[I] always starts with the dress," she explained in an interview with StyleList. "I wanted to give her a rock and roll meets feminine look to reflect both the dress and Kate's feminine and strong personality."

Kate sported sexy smouldering eyes on the red carpet, which Melanie was keen to make the main focus of her beauty look.

The make-up pro purposely kept the star's complexion natural in order to not detract from her dramatic peepers.

"With a bold, smoky eye everything else has to be simple, so I wanted her face to look fresh and dewy with beautiful sun kissed cheekbones. I then focused on her eyes and built a deep smoky look by continuously blending the eyeliner, primer and shadow," she explained.

Melanie finished off the look with a few coats of mascara for extra drama and slicked on a nude lipstick to "really draw attention to the eyes."

Kate is famed for her fresh-faced look and has previously gushed that mother Goldie Hawn has influenced her beauty preferences.

"I was actually looking at pictures of mom in the ’70s that were amazing," she explained in a recent interview. "Her hair was stringy and wavy and her eyes, her eyelashes, the mascara was incredible and she has this big coat on. Mommy got to live in a time, the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, so much fun."
