Supermodel Kate Moss has fronted about as many beauty campaigns as you’d imagine—self-tanners, skincare, haircare, you name it. She even launched a line of best-selling drugstore lipsticks for Rimmel London. But now Moss has teamed up with the super-luxe Japanese beauty brand Decorté, which is making its debut in North America at Saks Fifth Avenue, to launch a makeup palette of her must-have lip, eye, and brow products.

Inside the sleek black pouch of the Kate Moss Favorites kit are six silky-smooth powder shadows in neutral taupes, browns, and one “moss” green. All are shimmery—not sparkly—and easily buildable. There are also four matte lipsticks in Moss’s iconic shades: two pinky nudes, one classic red, and a berry mauve. There are also a lip pencil, inky liquid eyeliner, brow pencil, and three applicator brushes inside. The makeup kit will be available exclusive at Saks Fifth Avenue later this month, but it’s available for pre-order now (scroll down) if you just can’t wait. Ahead, see what Moss had to say about her trick for the perfect eyeliner (it sounds a lot easier than it really is), and how her approach to makeup has changed over the years.

Harper’s Bazaar: You’ve had so many major hair and beauty moments over the years—is there one that sticks out as your favorite? Why? Do you have a least favorite look?
Kate Moss: My favorite hair and make up look is from the Italian Vogue story I shot with Nick Knight in December 2010. Sam made me feel so glamorous with the brunette wig and Val worked her magic with the ’60s flick.
What was this collaboration process like for the palette? Why did you choose these particular colors and textures?
Decorté gave me complete creative control with the palette. I chose shades that work for every day but added richer colors to give you the option to go for a stronger look. I love the semi-matte texture of the lip quad, it lasts all day whilst conditioning your lips too.
What is your secret to the perfect, smudgy, Kate Moss eyeliner application?
To get the perfect eyeliner I pull up the corner of my eye, follow the lash line with my Decorté liquid liner then run my finger over to smudge the edges.
How has your approach to makeup changed over the years? Is there something you do more—or less—of now?
These days its all about glowing skin, keeping it light and natural. I always use my eyelash curler to open my eyes before applying mascara and have started using a pencil to define my brows so have included that in the kit too.
What beauty advice or hair and makeup philosophy do you hope to pass on to your daughter?
My best beauty advice would be to wear high factor sunscreen at all times when in the sun.
