“Less is more”: Kate Winslet reveals her intimate beauty secrets and how she is like Kate Middleton
As a mother-of-two who is constantly on the go you might think Kate Winslet would need a little extra help looking every inch the glamourous Hollywood star.
But the Oscar winning actress has revealed her golden beauty rule, “less is more”.
And in an interview in December’s InStyle magazine the 36-year-old actress reveals like Kate Middleton she always does her own make-up.
It is certainly paying off as the 36-year-old looked simply stunning in her latest photo shoot.
She said: “I like to do my own make-up. I believe in less is more. Recently, I wore a simple, black Victoria Beckham column dress with long sleeves and small, gold belt detailing on the front.
“I knew that a curly hairdo would have completely gone against the dress, so we went for a high sculpted ponytail, with a little bit of height in the front. It pulled the whole look together.”
“Glamour to me is about remaining graceful and understated.
“For example, with very bold lip colors, you can’t overdo the rest of your face.
“With a bright-red party lipstick, just go with lots of mascara and keep everything else clean. I love LancÃ´me’s L’Absolu Rouge lipstick, as it lasts. Unless you spend the whole night snogging, you won’t need to reapply it.”
But the star of Mildred Pierce could be needing to reapply that make-up as her new romance with Ned Rocknroll, who is nephew of business tycoon Richard Branson, is said to be still going strong.
The pair met at Branson’s house and have officially been an item since August.
Her new beau has met her two children Mia, whose father is director, Jim Threapleton, and Joe, who was born in 2003 during Kate’s marriage to another director, Sam Mendes.
And it seems Kate’s style is set to become truly timeless as a wax work was recently unveiled of the star at Madame Tussauds.
Winslet takes her place among other British acting talents such as Dame Helen Mirren and Dame Judi Dench and marks her 20th year in the industry.
Winslet won the Best Actress award for her title role in miniseries Mildred Pierce and gave an emotional speech upon accepting the award.
She jumped out of her seat and punched the air as she walked up to the stage and said: “Oh look I really did win it.Thank you so so much this means such a great deal.”
