michelle williams in chanel beaute at costume institute gala 2011 Inspiration:
“The gold birds on Michelle’s dress really inspired us to go for a golden look… We wanted something chic, but a little edgy to offset the black of the dress. We felt a modern ‘golden smoky eye’ would be cool and fresh, but not washed out.”

How-To:
“I started by applying with my fingers, CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Pastel very lightly all over the face and under the eyes; then I set it with the CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Clair – Translucent 1.

For her eyes, I used the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes applying the palest shade all over they eye area to act as a base so I was able to smoothly blend the other shades into it. I then applied the softer of the brown shades in the crease of the eye, wrapping it as a smoky liner under the eye. Then I added the darker brown shade in the upper lash line. I used CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Espresso inside the eye and as a sharper line on the top eyelash line. Lastly, I used CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir on the top and bottom lashes.

I used the CHANEL Precision Brow Definer in Soft Brown in the brows, above the brow to the outside of the brow, to create an arch and filling in below and on the inside.

I used CHANEL Powder Blush in Tempting Beige, as it works great as a contouring cheek color. I used it under the cheek bone, fanning it up over apples of cheeks. For her lips, I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Canotier for a pale, beige-gold light wash on the lips to keep everything soft and balanced.”

AMY ADAMS / CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST STEPHEN SOLITTO

amy adams in chanel beaute at costume institute gala 2011Inspiration:
“Tonight’s inspiration for the Met Ball was Amy’s sophisticated L’Wren Scott dress. It was this beautiful mauve with an intricate black pattern. As soon as I saw the picture of the dress, I knew I would do a muted smoky eye with the CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Misty-Soft. It was a perfect color match. “

How-To:
“To start the process, I primed Amy’s face with CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Fluid. This moisturizer is so luxurious; it really feels likes it’s working on your skin to get it in the best condition before the big night.

Amy has beautiful skin, but for the red carpet it needs to be perfection. CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige – Pastel is how I achieved that with her. It gives flawlessly light coverage so your skin looks its best. Healthy, but not too shiny.

I love doing Amy’s eyes because they are so perfectly shaped and as soon as you put anything on them they pop. To make them stand out tonight I lined her upper lids with CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Cassis. To be dramatic and get swept up in the glamour of the Met Ball, I dragged this line way out past the lashes as well. Next, I swept the deeper purple shade in the CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Misty-Soft over the Cassis to blend and soften from lash line all the way to brow. I also took the brush and applied this shade to her lower lash line connecting this to the upsweep on her lids. To pop the eyes from underneath, I used CHANEL Cassis again on her lower lash line and to make sure the color match wasn’t too precious I dusted the outer upper and lower corners of her eye with the darker grey shade in the CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Gris-Subtil. I topped off her look with Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir on both the upper and lower lashes.

On Amy’s cheeks, I used CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Dust as it gave her the perfect flush she needed. To pull her whole look together, I applied CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Bel-Ami. This lip is strong, but wearable and a perfect balance to her smoky eye. To add a final touch, I applied CHANEL Nail Colour in Black Satin to her hands, and when she left for the Met Ball she looked like the movie star she is.”

EMMA STONE / CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST RACHEL GOODWIN

emma stone in chanel beaute at costume institute gala 2011Inspiration:
“Emma’s Met Ball make up was inspired by the graphic black and white floral print of her dress. The lack of color prompted me to bring elements of a colorful spring garden into the makeup look opting for bold, feminine color on her lips, eyes and cheeks for a fresh youthful statement.”

How-To:
“On her skin, I used CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige Rosé- Pastel. This lightweight, luminous formula allowed me to perfectly even out her skin while still letting her gorgeous freckles to show. I’m obsessed with her freckles!

On her eyes, I used a wash of pale pink shimmer from CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Lilium on the entire lid; then I boosted her lash line with two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir after placing Ardel individual lashes to the end of her eyes only. I finished by lining her inner eyelid with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Clair for a subtle contrast.”

Inspiration:
“Hailee is such a beautiful, strong young woman. She’s as sweet and honest as you’ll ever meet. This is her first Met Ball and the experience will be unforgettable. As for her look our inspiration was Juliette, as in Romeo and Juliette. Romantic, soft, young and beautiful.”

How-To:
“To start, I moisturized her face with honestly the most luxurious product I have ever used, CHANEL Sublimage La Creme. This is a beautifully whipped moisturizing cream that is heaven on the skin. If you can treat yourself to one product this season this would be it. After moisturizing, I used CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige – Tendre, lightly just to even out her skin.

Hailee’s eyes are the most beautiful golden brown color. To bring out the gold and to complement her gorgeous romantic dress, I chose CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Spices. From the lash line to her eye brows and underneath the lash line I used all gold to reflect the gold in her eyes and make them sparkle. On her lids I used the beautiful cinnamon brown to make them pop and to work off the color of the dress.

To strengthen her lash line, I lined with CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Espresso and then layered the deep plum from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Kaska Beige over to soften that line. I topped her eyes off with CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir. On Hailee’s cheeks, I used CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Dust in her hollows. Then to warm it up, I dashed CHANEL Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Corail on her apples. And of course one of my favorite features are the lips. I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Elise to richen up the color and deepen the tone just on the bottom lip. Then on her whole lip I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Fetiche for a rosy healthy pink. She looked stunning and charmed the red carpet.”

Inspiration:
“Sarah Jessica’s look reminded me of Tippi Hedren from the movie “The Birds”. She was wearing a gold-grey metallic dress that had a 50’s glamour feel, but I didn’t want to focus on 50’s makeup. I wanted to make it modern and glamorous.”

naomi watts in chanel beaute at costume institute gala 2011 Inspiration:
“Naomi was wearing the most beautiful sheer, peachy-beige dress with long sleeves and a fitted body with layers of a billowing skirt made in the finest net and encrusted with diamonds, which was absolutely breathtaking. I wanted to contrast the sparkly fairy feeling by creating strong eyes, a contoured cheek and a pale, beige-nude with a hit of grey.”

How-To:
“To prepare the skin, I used CHANEL Sublimage La Crème. Then I evened out the skin to a natural, glowy finish using CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Tendre.

On the eyes, I used colors from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes, lining the lash line above and below and lining the socket line with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Ambre, and then blending and smoking with the darker brown eyeshadow shade from the palette. Next, I started highlighting the inside corner and ball of the lid, as well as the brow bone, with the lighter color in the Quad. I then curled the lashes and applied CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir.

I used a golden blush to contour the cheeks, and then finished the look with CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Biarritz on the lips.”

CHRISTINA HENDRICKS / CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST VANESSA SCALI

christina hendricks in chanel beaute at costume institute gala 2011

Inspiration:
“Christina’s makeup was directly inspired by her strapless dress. The dress had an earthy, mermaid feel. You can picture her appearing from out of the mist in Ireland just in time for the Ball. This look is a contrast of simplicity and sophistication: nude skin, ruddy-rosy cheeks and flush lips paired with intense, sultry copper eyes.”

How-To:
“First, I prepared her skin by using CHANEL Sublimage La Crème. This cream is rich, luxurious and penetrating. Then I applied CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Pastel. This formula is so exciting! From the moment I tried it, it has been a staple in my bag. It’s effortless to apply and light as air — perfect for making the skin look nude, but flawless. CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Petale was applied to the apples of the cheeks blending outward.

For definition and intensity, I lined her eyes with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir at the base of the lashes and on the inside rim of the eye (one of my favorite ways to secretly make lashes look thicker and define the eyes is to line the inside rim, on the waterline). Then using CHANEL Makeup Shadow/ Liner Brush #4, I smudged the line for a softer effect. Using the rich copper shade from the CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow in Spices, I applied color from the lash line to just above the crease and swept past the natural outer corner to exaggerate and elongate the eye. This color continues under the bottom lashes, blended well. Then to highlight the brow bone, I used a touch of CHANEL Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Delta. I finished the eye by framing it with lush, dramatic lashes – CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir. You can never have too many lashes and this mascara really delivers.

For lips I wanted a flush, clean look so I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Sari D’Eau. And the last touch was a dusting of CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Clair – Translucent 1 on her T-zone.”

Inspiration:
“Maggie chose a beautiful blue sequined dress to wear, so we decided to keep the makeup very polished and luminous with a pop of glossy color on the lips. Maggie still had an amazing glow from a recent vacation that we wanted to accentuate as well.”

How-To:
“I started with a light touch of CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Tendre to even out her skin tone and CHANEL Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in Bronze Rosé applied on the top of her cheekbone and temples.

The eyes were kept fresh and defined with the shimmering beige shades in the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Dunes. Two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir accentuated her long lashes.

We chose CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Elise, a berry-rose shade, to complement the blue sequined dress and applied it without a lip liner just as a glossy lip stain.”
