In this makeup series, we’ll be discussing some “Insta-famous” makeup artists.

Our spotlight this week is shining brightly on Katie Jane Hughes, our favorite earring-obsessed Brit. Ms. Hughes is always donned with bright, dewy skin, and in all of her stories I’ve watched, I’ve yet to see even a pimple- so hats off to her makeup abilities or her skincare (both is the answer).

Taking a quick scroll through her Instagram profile, you will quickly notice that Hughes is very fond of dewy skin, bold eyeshadows, nude/pink/red lips, thick, feathered brows, and of course, statement earrings!

In her bio, Katie says, “Glossy skin is my thing.”

Let’s talk about some of the amazing products she uses to create her take notice looks!


Bold Bleu

This look includes:

  • Estée Lauder x Victoria Beckham– Bleu Electrique Nude
  • MAC Cosmetics– Upward Lash Mascara
  • LORAC Cosmetics– Pro Matte Lip Color – Greige – Greyish beige
  • Ardell Beauty– ‘Stroke a Brow’ feathering pen in soft black and medium brown

Katie doesn’t elaborate what she used for this look, but we couldn’t pass up sharing this bold eyeshadow and beautifully clear skin look with y’all. This look is from a shoot Hughes did with (on Instagram): @aqua , @tomtakesphotoss , @timothyaylward , @isabelyrosado , and @carolinaorrico.

The ‘Glow Tap’

Rosie HW is featured in this one, and while we don’t have a list of products used for this look, Hughes shared a technique for placing product and blend seamlessly without removing any of your makeup underneath–it’s called, the glow tap. Rosie’s look includes ‘glowing skin, doe liner, and fluffy brows.’
