Picking out a picture for this was so so hard. She is just so beautiful! Being one of the most photogenic women on the planet, Kate Moss is a beacon of inspiration for all us beauty girls looking for an understated, rock-chick look.

Most times, as she is an international style icon, Kate will keep her makeup simple since her outfits are the main focal point of her image. I love seeing her with a smokey eye or, like in the picture, a striking red lip. She has modelled for Rimmel for over 15 years and has now become their brand ambassador who gives her own input into the products and how they are made. Her own range - named "Kate" - is incredibly successful as the quality of the cosmetics is stellar and they are also very reasonably priced. Her matte lipsticks are a favourite of mine.
In this image, Kate has started the look by applying a light-medium coverage foundation all over the face and then gone in with a slightly lighter concealer under the eyes, around the nose and chin. Her razor-sharp cheekbones have been emphasised with a bit of contouring underneath and also under the jawline. An apricot colour powder blush has given the checks some warmth and helped blend the whole look together. As for the eyes, Kate had opted to have very subtle makeup, with a thin layer of liner applied on the waterline and tight line and finally, at the outer third of the top lash line. The liner has been very gently smudged out a bit and a few coast of mascara has been applied to the lashes. The main focus of this look is her lips, which has been created using a bright red lipliner and red lipstick from her own collection.
