Each award season my fascinated with the red carpet grows, not only with regards what the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Hudson and Nicole Kidman are wearing, (if you missed my earlier post check out the trends of the Golden Globes here), but also with their make-up as each year it seems to get more and more refined and flawless.
One of my favourite looks of this year’s Golden Globes had to be Anne Hathaway, who not only looked gorgeous in Chanel Haute Couture but she also complemented her gown with a flawless complexion, which her Chanel make-up artist Kate Lee described as wanting her to “appear as if lit from within”.
To create the look, Chanel and Kate Lee have released the make-up used and how to achieve this flawless, elegant look, everything from the skincare to the shade used on her lips.
First Kate prepped Anne’s skin with Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum followed by Chanel Base Lumière Illuminating make-up base, and then used Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting foundation to keep the skin looking radiant, and then a small amount of Chanel Perfection Lumière was applied where needed.
Then a “light sweeping touch” of Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder was used on Anne’s cheekbones to “illuminate her bone structure”, as well as along the clavicle and over the shoulder blades. Then on the apple of the cheek, a pale peach blush was used to contrast the lip colour.
For Anne’s eyes, Kate defined her eye socket with Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Fauve, which she describes as “a delicious grey/lilac shade”, on the lid and along the base of the lower lashes. Then her lashes were curled and given a coat of Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir, and to make her lashes look luscious a selection of lashes were added for a “customised shape”.
Finishing off her look, and my favourite bit, “the perfect pink for a perfect pout”, Kate applied Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Seduisante.
As red carpet make-up goes, this is simple, but so, so elegant and I love it – I have put together the key pieces from the look below so why not try it out yourself.
