Kathryn Calhoun Dennis is the red-headed starlet of the Bravo reality show Southern Charm. I love that Kathryn always brings the drama and originality in her style that we so badly need in this day and age. She is always extra and her looks make a serious statement. This girl has been through a lot and she is not going to let anyone dim her light. Shine on Kathryn. I did some research to find out Kathryn’s favorite beauty products and I’m sharing them all here with you!
When does the new season of Southern Charm premier?
Season 6 of Southern Charm is about to premier on Bravo on May 15th, 2019 at 8/7c.
If you’ve never seen this gem of a series you MUST watch. Kathryn is part of one of the most iconic, jaw dropping season ending episodes in reality show history (last episode of the first season).
Researching this post I learned many interesting things about Ms. Dennis. Kathryn was not cast as part of the original cast, she started as a background extra at a party and charmed her way into a lead role. Calhoun is actually her (and Kensington’s) middle name (I thought she had 2 last names). And she’s dabbled in the dating app Bumble.
How old is Kathryn Dennis?
Kathryn Calhoun Dennis was born on August 5th, 1992 making her 26 years old.
Kathryn Dennis’ Makeup
Kathryn Calhoun Dennis’ Red Lipstick
Kathryn Calhoun Dennis’ signature red lipstick color? MAC Lady Danger ($18.50)! This is Kelly Dodd’s favorite too! This shade has blue undertones (some red lipsticks pull more orange) and that makes your teeth appear whiter too!
Kathryn carries the Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Bronzer Coconut Perfect Tan ($49) with her because she loves the big mirror. She also loves that it smells like coconuts. Her makeup artist Gabby Garrison (@gabbygarrison on Instagram) used it on the Southern Charm Season 6 Promo photos too!
Kathryn Dennis’ Hair Stylists and Makeup Artists
Gabby Garrison (@gabbygarrison on Instagram)
One hairstylist/makeup artist that Kathryn Dennis works with in Charleston is Gabby Garrison (@gabbygarrison on Instagram). Gabby did Kathryn’s hair (color, extensions, and style) and makeup for the promos for Southern Charm season 6 and she did a BEAUTIFUL job! Kathryn looks like perfection! And seriously biggest shout out to Gabby ever because she was a complete ANGEL and went above and beyond by giving me all of this super detailed info!
Kathryn Calhoun Dennis’ Coral Lip
Gabby was also nice enough to DM me some of the details about what she used on Kathryn for this shoot. For Kathryn’s gorgeous bold coral lip she used Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Carina (PS this is discontinued so if you want it snatch it up ASAP!!)
Kathryn Calhoun Dennis’ Lip Gloss
topped with NARS Orgasm lip gloss ($24). Is this not the most beautiful color ever? I might need to snatch this one up…
Gabby used the Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk Luxury Eyeshadow Pallete ($53) for the promotional photoshoot and for Kathryn’s interview looks. OMG is this palette dreamy or what? Like I need this. Gabby uses the matte brown color on an angled brush to lightly fill in Kathryn’s eyebrows too!
For mascara Gabby used Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara ($25) on Kathryn over Ardell falsies.
Kathryn Dennis’ Lashes
Gabby used the super affordable Ardell Faux Mink lashes on Kathryn.
Kathryn Dennis’ Eyebrows
For Kathryn’s brows Gabby uses Glossier Boy Brow in Brown ($16). I own this and it’s one of my faves too!. This product has a teeny mascara style wand and thickens, fills in, grooms brows and helps them stay in place all day.
Face Makeup – Foundation, Powder & Concealer
Gabby mixes foundations to get the perfect formula and color match for Kathryn. She mostly uses Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Light Beige ($39). This is another product I have heard SO MANY good things about and I’m dying to try myself.
Gabby mixed Born This Way foundation with Physician’s Formula The Healthy Foundation SPF 20 ($15). She said this one is great for sensitive skin.
For under eye concealer Gabby uses the super affordable Physician’s Formula Conceal Rx Physicians Strength Concealer. I’m so intrigued by them calling this a “physicians strength” concealer…
Gabby used the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder in Fair ($45) on Kathryn. I have heard AMAZING things about this powder and the whole Charlotte Tilbury line. Patricia Altschul loves Charlotte Tilbury blushes.
Kathryn Dennis’ Hair
Big, Loose Curls with Volume
For Kathryn’s hair Gabby used Powder Play Volumizing & Texturizing Powder by Big Sexy Hair ($17) and put it in velcro rollers for a couple hours to set. I’ve talked about hot rollers before in my posts on Patricia Altschul and Lisa Vanderpump and I’m going to proclaim right now that I think they’re going to make a comeback ASAP.
Gabby finished Kathryn’s hair with some Amika Hairspray ($25)
Gabby added some Moroccan Oil ($15) for shine.

Kathryn Dennis’ Skincare

She likes a light weight moisturizer so she uses Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster Cream SPF 30 ($92). This is a primer, moisturizer and sunscreen all in one. It’s a good idea to layer sunscreen like this for added protection.
Dr. Germain – Kathryn goes to this dermatologist because her co-star Miss Patricia Altschul sees her. She uses Germain Super Sheer Physical Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ ($42) to protect her fair skin.
Kathryn is a girl after my own heart wearing a swim shirt ($85) in the Bahamas!! I wore one in Nicaragua (and Mexico, and Florida, and anytime I’m in water) when you’re fair you have to take these steps to protect yourself!
Kathryn Dennis’ Hair
Volume and Texture
When a fan asked Kathryn how they can get big Southern hair like her, she recommended the Powder Play Volumizing & Texturizing Powder by Big Sexy Hair ($17).
Kathryn’s red hair has been many different and vibrant shades of red over the years and really is what gives her that old Hollywood look.

@igkhair is my go to on set- it smells so good! 😍 In my hair is their holographic hair foam, FOAMO; & on Kathryn I’m using their dry shampoo, Direct Flight, which is great for giving texture to the hair! This isn’t an ad, I just love them💘 #charlestonhair #igk #onset #southerncharm #bts
Her hair and makeup artist Gabby Garrison uses IGK Hair Direct Flight Multi-Tasking Dry Shampoo ($27) to give Kathryn’s hair texture.
Bonded Semi-Permanent Hair Extensions
Gabby used Babe Fusion Pro Hair Extensions in Shade 38 Gigi to give Kathryn’s hair length and fullness. These are Keratin bond hair extensions that will last a few months. This type of hair extension must be purchased through a salon and installed professionally.
Clip In Temporary Hair Extensions
If you want hair extensions that you can take in and out as you please, I highly recommend my friend Molly’s company Girl Get Glamorous HAIR Clip-In Hair Extensions. Molly is a redhead herself and understands how difficulty it can be to find the perfect shade. To get close to Kathryn’s Season 6 promo hair Molly recommends the Girl Get Glamorous Clip-In Hair Extensions in shade Hot Sauce 29/30. You can use my code HOLLYWOOD for a discount.
She says to have a professional colorist do a red toner with no bleach and no dye. The extensions have already been chemically processed to sanitize, remove color, and add color so it’s best to try for the shade closest to the desired color and use toner only.
Kathryn Dennis’ Tan
Kathryn swears by Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Leg Makeup which she puts all over her body. I can confirm that this product is amazing. It’s so great at covering up imperfections in the skin. It’s like a bottle of panty hose. I can also vouch that it gets all over everything. I’ve literally brought my own brown towel to a pool party and on a boat before.
Mobile Spray Tanning
Kathryn, much like her friend Stassi, is obsessed with spray tans. For a spray tan that won’t come off on someone’s furniture Kathryn has used Glow Boss which is a mobile tanning company which means they’ll come to you!
Kathryn Dennis Plastic Surgery
Kathryn gets Restalyne in her lips at Access Aesthetics in Charleston.
Kathryn told the case she had a breast augmentation during a Southern Charm reunion.
