Celebrity Makeup Artist Pati Dubroff: The Woman Behind the Face of Kate Bosworth

Wanna look like Kate Bosworth? Here's your chance.

Do everything Pati Dubroff says because she's Bosworth's main makeup artist. She's also Clarins' new beauty ambassador. I learned both of these important facts last week during a special brunch I attended at the Sunset Tower Hotel, hosted by none other than Dubroff.

Actually getting to pick her brain for a few intimate moments as we sat next to each other, nibbling on chocolate croissants and sipping lattes, I asked Dubroff how she achieved Kate's perfect, punch-colored lip as seen below. She replied by explaining that she coated her lips in a neutral shade then dabbed the centers (only the centers) with a darker, bolder shade and then worked her way outward. "Genius," I thought to myself. Aloud, I contained myself and politely said, "how clever."

But, the product that captured my heart and my developing fine lines was the brand's Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch. Unlike most primers out there, the magical product smooths lines, pores, and wrinkles sans the chemicals. Allowing foundation to go on like satin, it dissolves right into the skin, leaving it light, as if nothing went on at all. P.S. it comes in a wand too for touch-ups on the go. GENIUSSSSS!
