It Girl Kate King Shares Her Beauty Favorites
Executive Beauty Director
On the street, the famously fresh-faced model Kate King is usually in jeans, a T-shirt and…moisturizer. "I don’t really wear makeup during the day," says the Toronto native and star of the campaign for Dolce & Gabbana’s newest perfume, Dolce.
"I love face oils—I change them up every time I run out. Right now I love the Seaberry one from Fresh. But when I go out at night, I’m all for makeup!" Even if she’s still wearing the jeans and T-shirt (Rag & Bone, H&M or Acne for the jeans, vintage for the T-shirts), King does a mean smoky eye, smudging liner with a Q-tip to create the shape. "I’ve been playing with makeup since I was a little girl—I even do my friends’ makeup and, of course, my own. My favorite is a sort of rocker-messy-smoky eye. It’s a look anybody can do." If Friday night involves a smoky eye, Saturday will be a bright red lip: "I’ll be over the eye by then, and I adore that classic Dolce red."
Day or night, King is a shoe girl. "I love a store full of shoes," she says with a laugh. "Barneys I like for fancy heels, but I’m most into Nikes right now!" Indeed, working out (at SLT or Yoga to the People) is her favorite jet-lag treatment. "Nothing resets your clock like exercise," she says. That and maybe a vivid red lip.
