For January’s makeup, I was inspired by 1930s screen star Carole Lombard. I love the way the women of that early film era were lit; they just glowed with feminine radiance. I wanted her makeup to reflect that.

I first prepared her skin with Le Jour de Chanel.

I applied a fine layer of CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in 10 Beige on top of her moisturizer, buffing it with a damp beauty blender sponge to keep her skin looking natural. I softly sculpted her cheekbones with CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour SPF 15 in No. 30.

I dabbed Le Blush Creme de Chanel in Revelation on the apples of her cheeks with my fingers.

I defined her brows with Votre Vu Arch de Triumphe in Fair using a small angled brush and comb.

On her eyes, I began with a base of Ellis Faas liquid shadow in #s202. I then applied CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Seduction. I used the soft pink and burgundy colors to create an ultra feminine feeling that would complement her blush-colored gown. I blended the deep burgundy into the crease then used the pale pink shimmer over the lids and brow bones.

I lined her upper lashline with CHANEL Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Grenat.

I curled her lashes and then applied Make Up Forever Smokey Extravagant mascara in Black to the top lashes only. I finished her eyes with a set of 100% Mink lashes by Velour.

I completed her look with CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Boy on the lips, a soft, shimmering petal color to pick up the color from her eye makeup but not compete with it.

I applied CHANEL Le Vernis Nail Colour in Rose Cache to her nails to complete the look.

Rose wore a custom gown that was the most amazing blush shade, so I wanted to make sure that she didn’t “disappear” with a look that was too natural.

I prepped Rose’s skin by misting her with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Essence Mist and then following quickly with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Gel Yeux. Next, I used a small amount of CHANEL Le Lift Creme Fine to give a beautiful, velvety, firm texture to her complexion.

Rose is blessed with beautiful, even-toned skin, so I just used CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour SPF 15 No. 30 to diffuse the light and give a velvet matte finish. I applied it with a large brush then used a damp beauty blender sponge to melt it into the skin for perfect coverage.

I decided on a late 70’s Helmut Newton-esque look. I started by defining the socket with the darkest color in the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Eclosion. I then blended the peach above the socket to melt the socket away. The lash line was defined by wetting the matte brown shadow and blending out. I finished the eye by adding a coat of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir, then feathered in a few extra lashes from both strip and individual Ardell.

I used Le Blush Creme de Chanel in Presage to add an apricot hue to Rose’s apples; it’s a great neutral and pairs very well with a warm brown eye shadow.

The lip was a beautiful deep rose with a violety hue: CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Byzantin. The lip balanced out the eye and completed the look.

My inspiration was Rose!

We chose CHANEL Le Vernis Nail Colour in Rose Moire (available October 2013). Not only did I get a kick out of “a rose for Rose,” it was the perfect color to bring an updated look to the nails. We loved this soft rose shade and metallic finish, and it was a chic complementary finish to her jewelry.

When using a metallic polish like this one, don’t shake or roll the bottle before application. Doing so can create air bubbles, which show up more in metallic polish than other finishes.
