Award Season: How To Achieve Anne Hathaway’s Flawless Make-Up

Anne-hathaway-chanel-face

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.

Golden Globes 2013: Anne Hathaway In Chanel Haute Couture

Anne-hathaway-chanel

Who: Golden Globe-winning actress Anne Hathaway

Where: At the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California

Wearing: An ice-white beaded strapless Chanel Haute Couture column gown featuring a peplum top from the spring/summer 2009 haute couture collection, teamed with Chanel Fine Jewellery

Verdict: It seems with her pixie haircut, the Les Miserables winner has developed a more refine and elegant red carpet style and this is a stunning gown that even though a few seasons old was modern and chic.

I have to be honest I still miss her Princess moments, but I get that she is trying to be more mature, this gown did stand out on the red carpet mainly due to the winter white colour, but it just didn’t bowl me over as much as I hoped her look would.

Completing her look was flawless make-up, as always, and a gorgeous “Swing Diamant” diamond Bracelet, “Plume” diamond Bracelet and “Camellia” diamond earrings by Chanel Fine Jewellery

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Anne Hathaway In Oscar de la Renta

Who: Anne Hathaway,  winner of the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in Les Miserables

Where: At the 18th Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held in Santa Monica, California

Wearing: A Platine spiral bugle bead Oscar de la Renta gown, teamed with diamond stud earrings and bracelet

Verdict: At first glance I wasn’t sure whether I liked this gown on Anne or not, I am not saying it doesn’t look incredible on her, the slinky silhouette suits her, it just didn’t wow me like I hoped.

Sparkles on the red carpet normally gets my vote but when I look at this gown all I can think is that this is something Nicole Kidman would wear or very similar to something she has worn. Again not a bad thing, I am just a little underwhelmed I think – here’s hoping for more at the weekend.

What I did adore though is her flawless make-up, that shade of lippy is divine, and I like her pixie crop all styled.

Is it just me who is a little bored by this look?

Cover Loving: February Magazines Are All About Actresses

Vanity-Fair-jennifer-lawren

You can tell that it is award season as all the major magazines have gorgeous actresses gracing their covers. Vanity Fair has gone for Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, Harper’s Bazaar have an elegant looking Anne Hathaway, Glamour UK goes girlie with Emma Stone, and Victoria Beckham’s designs score two covers with both Scarlett Johansson and Kristen Stewart wearing white on the covers of ELLE UK and V Magazine.

My favourite has to be the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence sporting her natural blonde locks in a fun cover for Vanity Fair. Shot by Ellen von Unwerth there is a softness in Jennifer’s face on the cover that is transformed into a complete vixen for the accompanying editorial and I love it. Sometimes Jennifer can be a little too serious – this cover is fun and relaxed and definitely brightened up my day.

Vanity-Fair-jennifer-lawrenemma-stone-glamour-magazineIt was close but my girl crush Emma Stone is my second favourite with her girlie cover for Glamour UK shot by Matthias Vriens-McGarth. Wearing a D&G botanical floral print, Emma is perfect for Glamour’s audience, I just wish they had gone for a different colour for the font – the orange is working for me. Anyone else was thinking this cover looks a little familiar? Well you would be right as a very similar shot from the same shoot was used for Glamour US back in May 2011.

Next up has to be Scarlett Johansson’s subscriber cover for ELLE UK’s February issue wearing a Burberry coat shot by Rankin. I like the newsstand version with her working a Victoria Beckham microbrush and lace dress but only from the ankles up, I am not loving those runway Manolo Blahnik for Victoria Beckham shoes. The subscriber cover is intriguing – I love the messy hair and seeing only one eye – Scarlett looks beautiful.

It was hard to decide who came next between Anne and Kristen, I am not blown away by either cover to be honest, but I think Harper’s Bazaar just takes it because of that gorgeous crystal-embellished Giorgio Armani strapless gown – all I can say about the rest is does Anne have a lazy eye?

Kristen doesn’t fair much better for me on V Magazine’s Spring 2013 issue. It isn’t that I don’t like the styling, the white Victoria Beckham vest with a black bra peeking out is fine, the make-up is grundy as you would expect from the Twilight actress – the problem I have is that I feel I have seen it all before – the wet hair, the moody look, the dark make-up around the eyes. Anyone else a little bored?
