What's Her Lipstick? The Scoop on Charlize and Katharine's Shades

04/27/2007 at 02:57 AM ET

We loved Katharine and Charlize’s red carpet looks so much, we tracked down their makeup artists to tell us exactly how to they were done! Katharine McPhee wore a slick of nude-colored gloss, ” target=”_blank”>Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pure Lipstick in Glazed Sienna #61, $28, at a Gillette event recently. The neutral lipcolor allowed her makeup artist, Efrat Acharkan, to create a more dramatic look for McPhee’s eyes.

At the East of Havana premiere, Charlize Theron demonstrated that the secret to scene-stealing lips — done with Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in Pink Legend #882, $26 — is to keep the rest of the makeup minimal. Her makeup artist, Dior’s International Makeup Advisor Shane Paish, explains, “First, I created gorgeous, flawless skin, added a touch of blush and DiorShow Blackout Mascara and then finished the look with the deep berry lip — one coat, no fuss.”

I can’t believe Katherine Mcphee made the prettiest list. Is she known for anything other than runner up idol contestant? She doesn’t seem to be doing very well in her musical career. I only see her in a few magazines. She’s ordinary. Kellie Pickler and Kelly Clarkson are much prettier. At least you got it right with Carrie.

I’m curious as to why you have someone from Idol on you Most Beautiful list. This list is a huge joke. Cheesy american idol, come on? I can understand Carrie Underwood, she’s gorgeous and she has a great career, but Katharine McPhee? Please…laughs with friends again.

The lips are okay, but kat-pretty, I love her hair-but that is it.

Kat is gorgeous with or without makeup. She’s just stunning. As for Kellie P, she had to get plastic surgery to enhance her looks, and she’s only 20. Kellie is a dime a dozen. No thanks, I’ll pass.

Who cares if Kat McPhee is a “runner-up” from American Idol? She has an amazing voice and shes beautiful. She may not be in the same league notoriety wise as A-listers, but that doesn’t disqualify her from this list…its not “peoples most famous” list! Lighten up people!
