Get The Look: Gwyneth Paltrow At The 2011 Grammy Awards

CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist Angela Levin worked with Gwyneth Paltrow at
The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards Show on Sunday, February 13th. Here are Angela’s tips on how to get Gwyneth’s chic, sexy rock and roll red carpet look.

Said Angela, “I wanted sexy rock chic for Gwyneth! After applying a light layer of CHANEL Hydramax + Active Moisture Cream and waiting about ten minutes for it to absorb, I applied CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup in BR20 (available in March). For the eyes I chose CHANEL Soft
Touch Eyeshadow in Cinnamon, smoking the eyes, and also on the lower lash line. And of course tons and tons of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir! For concealer I used CHANEL Lift Lumière Smoothing and Rejuvinating Concealer in Rose Lumière in a half moon shape blending almost to the hair line and
into the temples next to eye brow. I used round motions to create a soft sexy look. For her cheeks, I used the cream cheek colour in the CHANEL Multi-Use Makeup Palette in Paris- L.A, applying with a tapping motion using my fingers. Finally, her lips CHANEL Ultra-Wear Lip Colour in Rose
Agate.”

    Wow, that is alot of palettes! And all shimmer…oooh, delightful!

    For those who possibly cannot afford to stock that many shades (due to lack of money or space!)I recommend purchasing one shade from each colour hue i.e. one blue, one green etc. Then, when applying, mix them with a pearl shimmer powder, in order to custom-blend the desired shade. This will save you alot of cash and room in your makeup bag! 😉

    I like how she talks about smoking the eye using a cinnamon shade…most people think that a smoky eye must be in black or grey, but the term ‘smoke’ refers to the technique of creating soft, billowy edges (like a cloud!) by blending well, not the shade!

    I also like how she refers to using concealer after she mentioned foundation; suggesting that she applies it post-foundation. I do this too – avoids wasting product and saves alot of work.

    Thanks for sharing this – Gwyneth looks great 🙂
