Makeup - Detective Kate Beckett - Castle

I love Castle.  And I especially love the makeup worn by the lead character, Detective Kate Beckett, played by Stana Katic.  According to the lead makeup artist, Debbie Zoller (who also worked on Mad Men), it's important that Katic looks like a New York cop.  The look has to be classy, simple, and effortless.  Mission accomplished!


According to Zoller, it's all about great skin, with help from both skin care and makeup.  Apparently they use a lot of La Mer products on set.  Yeah.  Right.  Clearly their skin care budget is much bigger than mine.  And who says that more expensive is necessarily better anyway?  As for Beckett's perfect neutral/tawny lip (see 2nd picture) - Zoller first applies Laura Mercier HydraTint SPF 15 lip balm in Bronze Tint ($20), and then tops it with Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color in ''Honeysuckle'' ($22).  I'll definitely be copying the lips.  Definitely.

Whose makeup do you admire?  And PLEASE don't say Kim Kardashian - her makeup is copied more than Jennifer Anniston's hair on Friends - both over-rated in my opinion.

I have to say, I'm pretty partial to Kate Beckett's makeup as well.
