Chanel Beauté at the 2012 Costume Institute Gala

Chanel apparel may have been lacking on the red carpet at the Metropolitan’s 2012 Costume Institute Gala but Chanel Beauté made a strong showing. Here is a breakdown of who wore what this past Monday…

JANUARY JONES – MAKEUP BY CHANEL CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST RACHEL GOODWIN
2012 costume institute gala january jonesJanuary’s makeup tonight was all about fun spring color, so we chose CHANEL Rouge Allure Lipstick in Enjouee, a matte coral shade (available September) to create a prominent pastel mouth with a slightly playful feeling.

I used CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige 10 on her skin for a smooth hydrated complexion.

I shaded her eye crease and cheekbones with Exclusive Creation Soleil Tan de Chanel Luminous Bronzing Powder in Sable Rose and embellished her lids and inner eyes with CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre in Vision (available November), a gold irridescent cream shade that played off the gold details of her vivid yellow gown and her turquoise and gold necklace. I finished her eyes with CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir and filled in her brows with CHANEL Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Blond Clair.

CHANEL Rouge Allure Lipstick in Enjouee (available September), $32.50

CAREY MULLIGAN – MAKEUP BY MAKEUP ARTIST GEORGIE EISDELL

2012 costume institute gala carey mulliganUsually when designing the look for a big event, I seek inspiration in multiple areas but seeing as this is the MET Gala, all of the inspiration came from the dress! Her dress is a true work of art and reminded me of a modern day glamorous gladiator so I wanted her eyes to look fierce!

I started by prepping Carey’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage La Creme Texture Supreme. It’s the perfect cream to hydrate the skin for makeup.

I used CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 all over to even out her skin tone and give a flawless finish. A light dust of CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Clair was used to take the edge off the shine. On Carey’s cheeks, I used CHANEL Powder Blush in Fandango on the apples of her cheeks blended back to give her definition and a soft glow.

Carey’s eyes were my main focus. I used CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Noir-Ivoire all over her eye lid blending ever so slightly up above the natural crease of her eye, pulling it out to the sides of her eyes to give her a sharper and more dramatic edge. Then, I layered CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir to finish her eyes. I wanted Carey’s eyebrows to be strong and structured so I used CHANEL Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Brun to create this effect. I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Beige Felin; this was the perfect lipstick to finish off her MET Gala look.

Products used:
CHANEL Sublimage La Creme Texture Supreme, $390.00
CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15, $45.00

EMILY BLUNT – MAKEUP BY CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST JENN STREICHER

2012 costume institute gala emily bluntI was able to go with Emily to the initial fitting and I knew from the moment I saw the dress, and the color, I wanted to do a bronzy eye. We wanted to showcase the color of the dress with very simple streamlined hair, beautiful skin and a matte lip. I originally wanted to do a more coral lip, but after she put the dress on, we all agreed a more nude color looked better.

I mixed the CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige Rose with a little of the CHANEL Soleil Tan Sheer Illuminating Fluid to give her skin a sun-kissed bronzy look. I then brushed a little CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Naturel across her nose and forehead. I gave her just a pop of color on her cheeks with CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Bronze.

On her eyes, I started with the CHANEL Professional Eye Shadow Base and then blended colors from CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Spices and Mystic Eyes. I gave her one coat of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir, as to not take away from the intense bronzy eye. After trying a few shades of lipstick, we thought the CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Peregrina looked best.

SARAH JESSICA PARKER – MAKEUP BY MAKEUP ARTIST LESLIE LOPEZ

2012 costume institute gala sarah jessica parkerI was inspired by Sarah Jessica’s dress – the dress always tells you what to do with the makeup! It reminded me of a party in Versailles, so I didn’t want to do anything too harsh…we wanted her to be fresh and beautiful – garden chic!

I started by prepping her skin with CHANEL Sublimage La Creme Texture Supreme and used it on her neck as well. Sarah Jessica’s skin looks gorgeous, so I used CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige 30 only in the places she really needed it and applied it very lightly, followed by my favorite product CHANEL Long Lasting Concealer in Beige Ivoire. I used a pink blush on her cheeks and then topped that off with Exclusive Creation Soleil Tan de Chanel Luminous Bronzing Powder in Sable Rose and applied that to the temples of her forehead.

For the eyes, I applied CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Lilium. I used the minty green shade all over her eyes and then the dark shades in the crease and in the middle of the eye.

I finished the look by using CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Sheer Lipshine in Chance, a fresh pinky shade and then I dabbed a bit of CHANEL Glossimer in Sirocco, a gorgeous beigy gold shade, in the middle of the lips for a soft pop.

JESSICA PARE – MAKEUP BY MAKEUP ARTIST AMY NADINE

2012 costume institute gala jessica pareI was inspired by Jessica’s incredible gold-sequined dress, so I paired it with a metallic eye in rose gold + bronze, accented with wispy lashes and dewy skin with a light rose cheek and lip.

First I prepped the skin with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum for ultimate hydration and CHANEL Ultra Correction Lift Total Eye Lift around her eyes with my ring finger. I applied CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige 20 all over her face and neck with the CHANEL Foundation Brush #6 and blended with a Beauty Blender egg-shaped sponge.

I contoured the cheekbone with Exclusive Creation Soleil Tan de Chanel Luminous Bronzing Powder in Sable Rose then added CHANEL Powder Blush in Orchid Rose just along the highest corners of her cheekbones.

I filled in her brows with Damone Roberts pencil in Minx. Next, I dampened my eye shadow brush for intensity and staying power and applied CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Eclosion with the bronze shade along the upper and lower lashline, the rose gold shade on the lid, the gold shade in the crease and the pearl shade in the inner corner and brow bone. I followed with VS Makeup Kajal liner on the waterline then two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara and a dozen Ardell individual flare lashes on each eye.

I lined the entire lip with CHANEL Precision Lip Definer in Peche and finished with CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Peregrina.

SHAILENE WOODLEY – MAKEUP BY MAKEUP ARTIST GLORIA NOTO

2012 costume institute gala shailene woodleyI started by prepping Shailene’s skin with the new CHANEL Hydra Beauty Creme to give her skin a fresh drink of moisture and give the foundation a soft dewy glow.

I applied the new CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Fresh and Hydrating Cream Compact Makeup SPF 15 to further the fresh face glow and leave a natural finish but still give the coverage you need for red carpet. We didn’t want a bright cheek look, but still wanted something more than just natural contours, so we used CHANEL Powder Blush in Plum Attraction on the apples of her cheeks.

On her eyes we buffed out the CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Taupe-Delicat, using the darker color on her outer lid and the lighter on the entire lid and buffed out. CHANEL Precision Eye Definer in Noir and Coffee Bean were buffed on a small brush first, then onto the eye line. We kept her brows clean and used a mascara wand to brush them upwards. I applied many layers of the CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir. We love her amazingly long and full eyelashes and Shailene prefers to keep that as a main feature focus.

On her lips, we used a CHANEL Rouge Coco Baume Hydrating Conditioning Lip Balm, and added a hint of a soft peach with CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Chintz to the mix to give a hint of color.

CHANEL Hydra Beauty Creme, $87.00

FLORENCE WELCH – MAKEUP BY CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST LISA AHARON

2012 costume institute gala florence welchI prepped Florence’s skin with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Cream and CHANEL Lotion Confort. Then I applied CHANEL Vitalumiere Moisture-Rich Radiance Fluid Makeup SPF 15 in Clair all over her face. Under the eyes, on the high points of cheek bones and under the brow, I used CHANEL Eclat Lumiere Highlighter Face Pen in Beige Tendre. Using CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Clair, I applied the powder all over, but left out the high points of the cheek bones. I dusted CHANEL Powder Blush in Orchid Rose on the apples of her cheeks.

Using CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadows, I used Lotus as a base color, Safari to contour and Mahogany worked into the lash line on outer top and bottom lash lines. I then used CHANEL Precision Eye Definer in Brun Intense, applied finely on top and blended into the lash line. I then curled her lashes with the CHANEL Precision Eyelash Curler and applied CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir to top lashes. I then used Roux Lip Liner blended with CHANEL Rouge Allure Lipstick in Fatale.

Chanel Hosted 7th Annual Tribeca Film Festival Artist Awards Program Dinner

Alexa Chung at the CHANEL TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL DINNER

Earlier this week Chanel hosted the 7th Annual Tribeca Film Festival Artist Awards Program Dinner; you may remember that I posted a short video a few days ago showcasing the artist awards.  To commemorate the program, Chanel hosted a private dinner in NYC at Odeon with some very fancy people in attendance including Robert De Niro, Alexa Chung, Kanye West, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Jen Brill, Karlie Kloss, Leigh Lezark, Poppy Delevingne,and Cindy Sherman. And of course, many wore Chanel – see some highlights of the arrivals below. I have to say that I’m loving the floral backdrops to the rec carpets we’re seeing lately (we saw a rose covered wall at the Chanel-sponsored MOMA benefit).

Chanel Links: Big Giant Update!

Lots of Chanel news the past month that I didn’t get to post for one reason or another but is still post-worthy – check out my round-up of not-to-be-missed Chanel news….

Not everyone can afford Chanel – here’s how to make your own. The Londoner

Last August I mentioned that Coco Chanel’s vacation home, La Pausa, was for sale.  Well, it’s been scooped up off the market for an undisclosed amount but the property was listed for about €40 million.  Riviera Times

There has been some controversy about the crystal cuffs shown at the Chanel Fall 2012 show – some say that Chanel ripped off Pamela Love.  I don’t think they did anything intentional but Chanel has refused to produce the cuffs.  Whatever. I don’t think the Pamela Love cuffs are all that original – they’re fancy versions of flea market crystal jewelry (just my 2 cents).  Fashionista


Word on the street is that Chanel has received approval to design a new store on Bond Street in London that will also be the new U.K. headquarters for the brand. You can bet there will be some cool exclusive product and parties when this boutique opens up. Vogue UK

Chanel Beauté at the 2012 Academy Awards

Another awards show has come and gone and once more I am in awe at the lack of Chanel couture (or RTW for that matter) on the red carpet.   Chanel Beauté however was on the red carpet and Chanel celebrity makeup and nail artists were on hand to make the leading ladies shine.  Here’s a break down of the products and techniques used…

MICHELLE WILLIAMS ~ MAKEUP BY CHANEL CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST ANGELA LEVIN

MICHELLE WILLIAMS MAKEUP BY CHANEL CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST ANGELA LEVIN

MICHELLE WILLIAMS MAKEUP BY CHANEL CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST ANGELA LEVIN

INSPIRATION
My inspiration was a flower! When I saw Michelle in her stunning dress, it made me think of a beautiful rose I have in my garden. Like that flower, she looked so gorgeous and delicate, so I decided to use an array of Spring hues!

PRODUCTS
Skincare: I began by hydrating her skin with a light layer of CHANEL Sublimage La Creme Texture Supreme ($390.00).

Eye Shadow: Next, I used CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes ($58.00), using half moon strokes on the lids to maintain a round, soft feeling. For an added pop of glamour, I placed a bit of CHANEL Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Tigerlily ($28.50) on her lids.

Eye Liner: Under the eyes, I used the darkest color, the neutral deep brown with gold flecks shade, from CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes ($58.00).

Eye Brows: CHANEL Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Blond Clair ($29.00).

Foundation: To further enhance Michelle’s already gorgeous skin, I applied CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Compact ($58.00 – Available March 19 on chanel.com) for a hydrated, flawless, revitalized and radiant look.

Blush: For the cheeks, I applied my favorite new cheek color, Exclusive Creation Blush Horizon de CHANEL ($58.00).

Highlighter: To accentuate the natural contours of Michelle’s face, I lightly added CHANEL Limited Edition Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Jasmin ($45.00) to her cheeks. I also added this to her shoulders for a slight highlight as well.

Mascara: To the top and bottom lashes, I applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir ($30.00).

Lipstick: For Michelle’s bright, purpley-pink lips, I mixed two CHANEL Rouge Coco Shades from CHANEL’s Spring collection: Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Paradis, a pink coral with Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Destineé, a spring plum (each $32.00).

SANDRA BULLOCK ~ MAKEUP BY CHANEL CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST ANGELA LEVIN

SANDRA BULLOCK MAKEUP BY CHANEL CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST ANGELA LEVIN

SANDRA BULLOCK MAKEUP BY CHANEL CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST ANGELA LEVIN

INSPIRATION
Gorgeous in every way!!

PRODUCTS
Skincare: I started by applying a rich dose of CHANEL Sublimage La Creme Texture Supreme ($390.00) to a clean face and let it absorb into the face for about 15 minutes.

Foundation: On her eyes and forehead, I then used a light coat of CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Compact ($58.00 – Available March 19 on chanel.com).

Blush: For the cheeks I wanted to create a fresh, youthful appearance so I applied Exclusive Creation Blush Horizon de CHANEL ($58.00).

Eye Shadow: On the eyes, I began by applying CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre in Émerveille ($36.00) to her lids lightly with my fingers. I followed by applying all colors from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Enigma ($58.00). I used the chocolate grey on the outer part of the lid, the violet grey on the eye crease, the pink under the brow bone and the deep plum to frame the eye across the lash lines.

Eye Liner: To further glamorize her eyes, I lined the upper lash line with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir ($28.00).

Mascara: CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir ($30.00).

Lipstick: I finished her look by applying a sumptuous amount of CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Mademoiselle ($32.00) topped with CHANEL Glossimer in Braise ($29.50).

GLENN CLOSE ~ MAKEUP BY CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST CATHY HIGHLAND

GLENN CLOSE MAKEUP BY CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST CATHY HIGHLAND

INSPIRATION
Timeless beauty was the inspiration for Glenn’s Oscar look. With the unique color of her dress, I wanted Glenn’s face to be fresh, but also have enough pop for the cameras on the red carpet and last all evening through the parties following the live telecast. And yes, since it was the special night of the Academy Awards…we all agreed on pure glamour!

PRODUCTS
Skincare: The night before Glenn used CHANEL Sublimage La Creme Texture Supreme ($390.00). Before I applied the makeup, I used CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum (Available April 2012).

Foundation: I used CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 ($45.00). It was set and finished off with CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Translucent 1 ($45.00).

Blush: CHANEL Powder Blush in In Love ($43.00).

Eye Shadow: I covered the lid with the shimmery CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre in Émerveille ($36.00). I then blended the darker green shadow from CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Lilium ($58.00) up to the crease creating a soft, classic smoky eye.

Eye Brows: CHANEL Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Blond Clair ($29.00).

Eye Liner: I used CHANEL Precision Eye Definer in Brun ($29.00). I like to emphasize the lash line with a very fine line of black. My personal trick is using a tiny brush and dipping it into the black waterproof mascara for a ‘stay in place’ application for a long day.

Lipstick: Lastly, I applied CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Lipshine in Unique ($32.50), a reddish berry pink with gold sparkles.

INSPIRATION
Classic Hollywood, but with a young and fresh twist to highlight Angelina’s natural beauty.

PRODUCTS
CHANEL Le Vernis in Tendresse ($26.00) on fingers and toes

RED CARPET NAIL TIP
It is important to moisturize the hands. I always mix a formula with a special blend of organic natural oil, butter and organic sugar.

INSPIRATION
The inspiration was just clean and simple like the makeup, it was a very ethereal look due to the dress being clean lines and simple.

PRODUCTS
CHANEL Protective Base Coat ($25.00) on fingers and toes
CHANEL Extreme Shines Nail Lacquer ($25.00) on fingers and toes

KRISTEN WIIG ~ FINGERS & TOES PAINTED BY CELEBRITY MANICURIST ALICIA TORELLO

INSPIRATION
We wanted a clean and chic look, but something unexpected and not traditional. We wanted to do something fun and bold and something that contrasted beautifully with her blush-colored dress.

PRODUCTS
CHANEL Le Vernis in Black Satin ($26.00) on fingers

RED CARPET NAIL TIP
About a week up to the event it’s good to moisturize the hands and oil the cuticles often. When deciding on a polish for a big night out, you can’t really go wrong with any CHANEL color, each one creates a statement because the polish is so bold and unique even if it’s a natural shade.

All products are available online on Chanel.com.

Chanel at the 2012 Golden Globes and Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Julianne Moore Chanel Couture Golden Globe Awards
It’s award show season and it wouldn’t be a true red carpet without Chanel! Last night was the 2012 Golden Globe Awards and Julianne Moore looked lovely in black Chanel couture. The gown that Stella Tenant wore in the Chanel Couture Fall 2012 was one of my favorites and thought it looks lovely on Julianne Moore, I miss the shoulder ruffles.

At the Art of Elysium Gala January Jones and Rachel Bilson wore Chanel cocktail dresses. Rachel Bilson shined in Chanel Spring 2012 RTW and January Jones wore Chanel Resort 2011/12 collection.

Madonna Likes Chanel Gloves

madonna chanel gloves

Madonna has made two recent public appearances wearing Chanel fingerless gloves. I’m a huge fan of the gloves myself but no one wears them quite like Uncle Karl. Some people are speculating that she’s wearing the gloves to hide her hands since hands don’t lie as far as age is concerned. Hiding or not, I think Madonna looks great at any age. Keep wearing your Chanel gloves!
