Kate Winslet Oscars 2010 Makeup

Lancôme abassador Kate Winslet looked resplendent at the Academy Awards yesterday, clad in an Yves Saint Laurent gown and bold jewelry from Tiffany & Co. Kate’s long-time makeup artist, Jillian Dempsey, topped off the look with soft, ethereal makeup. Both the eyes and the lips got equal attention on this Oscar winner. Shimmering, champagne-pewter shades highlighted the eyes, while very saturated mascara delivered that extra definition. A pop of pink blush on her cheeks gave Kate just a hint of a natural flush. Jillian topped off the look with nude-pink lips.

“CSI:Miami” Eva La Rue Interviews With Marta Walsh

Last year I had an amazing opportunity to interview “CSI:Miami” star Eva La Rue about her beauty secrets. Eva was such pleasure to chat with. She was the sweetest!

I would like to share with my interview with Eva La Rue, just in case you’ve missed it.

Eva La Rue is the beautiful actress best known for her role of Natalia Boa Vista on CSI: Miami. Beginning season 5, Eva became a full-time cast member. Previous to CSI: Miami, Eva La Rue portrayed Dr. Maria Santos Grey on All My Children. In this interview, Eva La Rue reveals some of her beauty secrets, her romantic engagement in Africa, what some people may not know about her, and her movie with Samuel L. Jackson called: Lakeview Terrace.

I keep my hair beautiful thanks to…
I have really oily hair, I have girlfriends who can go three days without washing their hair. My hair gets oily overnight. I do use a dry shampoo that extends my wash by one day, but no more than that. I use a Fortifying Deep Conditioning Sleek & Shine by Fructis by Garnier. It also works really well when you want to dry your hair straight.

My favorite skincare products are…
I use Astara Bio Genic Skincare. Of all the creams I have used, it’s the only brand I re-buy. Astara is by far the most active. It supposed to be all natural too. Sometimes I see their masks at Sephora but I don’t think they carry the whole line, so I always order Astara Skincare products online.

I get my eyelashes looking long, full, and sexy using…
. It’s pricey, $140, but it really works. It gives you spider leg long lashes. I was skeptical first. But for some reason, I put on false eye lashes, I pulled them and it pulled a whole chunk of my lashes, so I was desperate. You have to give it 3 weeks to work, and then you notice you have Daddy Long Leg size eye lashes.

Yves Saint Laurent Touch Éclat

In Marta’s Makeup Bag: I’ve been using the classic lately: Yves Saint Laurent Touch Éclat ($40), or in translation: Radiant Touch. I’ve been reading about YSL Touch Éclat for many years now and I even remember buying it almost 10 years ago! Can you believe that? At the time, I made a bit of an error by getting the wrong shade. It was a very pale almost white shade that didn’t do anything to my light olive complexion. So I was disappointed with the results back then. But it’s OK sometimes to give anyone or anything a second chance. This time I got the Yves Saint Laurent Touch Éclat in shade 3, Marta’s shade! And it works amazing on me now! Yoohoo. Finally. Touch Éclat is perfect to cover under eye dark circles and brighten the eye area. Now, I’m in love:)
