CHANEL celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee worked with Anne Hathaway at the New York premiere of Love and Other Drugs on Tuesday, November 16. I adore the soft, neutral look on Anne Hathaway, who needs few cosmetics to enhance her natural gorgeosity. Incidentally, I’ll be watching this movie on opening day next week JUST to figure out how she got her hair to look so glamazingly curly/natural. It’s a state not easily achieved. But in the meantime, here’s how to get her epic makeup look she rocked at the premiere.
How to get the look:
“Annie wore a gorgeous winter white gown, featuring lace and feathers,and a big bow at the neck. When I saw the dress I knew that the make up needed to be beautiful but approachable.
I prepped the skin with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Serum, and used CHANEL Hydramax + Active Lip Care [ed. note: One of my new faves!] on her lips. Her complexion was smoothed with CHANEL Vitalumiere Fluid Makeup, the miracle foundation. Her skin is perfect, but this base makes the skin look milky and soft, has great staying power, and is never dry or flaky.
Next, I drew a very thin line next to her lash line, with a super fine black liquid brush liner by Shiseido, that I bought in Japan. Taking care not to wing out the eyes past the end of the natural lashes, I ended in
sharp little upward points. To finish the lines, I added a little black matte shadow to the outer corners, to soften the line. I curled the lashes, and applied CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir to the base of the lashes, adding clusters of feathery strip lashes which I customized for Annie’s shape.
On the lids I applied a mixture of silvery and pale gold creme shadow from the Nars Thebes palette, and then used CHANEL Éclat Lumière in Beige Rosé to lift the brow bone, the inner corners and the outer lower corners which sharpened the line. I groomed and perfected Annie’s eye brows with Anastasia Brow powder and setting gel. Annie’s Cheeks were Laura Mercier creme blush in Praline, a neutral peachy nude, which I love to use when I don’t want a specific shade.
Finally, on the lips we used CHANEL Ultra Wear Lip Colour in Cristal Rose (new for Spring, not available till January!) I love this colour as it is transparent enough to see your own lip colour behind it, but will not be moved! It also has a transparent gloss which you can use to add moisture throughout the evening.”
