I love the Chanel Illusions d’ombre collection. The colors are gorgeous, easy to apply and you can combine them in many ways. You can wear one color for an easy everyday look or you can create a smoldering smokey eye by mixing shades. Chanel recently posted two videos – one featuring the collection and one how-to video. Check out the how-to below…

Chanel Beauté at the 2011 Emmy Awards

Last night the 2011 Emmy Awards aired and I was watching the red carpet with my eagle eye after hearing rumors that Lea Michelle and Dianna Agron were trying to source vintage Chanel couture for the red carpet.  Alas, the ladies did not wear Chanel but Gwyneth Paltrow and Dianna Agron wore Chanel Beauté.  Here are details on how to achieve their looks from their celebrity makeup artists themselves.

GWYNETH PALTROW / CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST KATE LEE

Inspiration:
“The dress inspired the look. It was very fashion forward, with a nod to the 30s. I wanted to keep her looking youthful and radiant, with an edge.”

How-To:
Kate prepped Gwyneth’s skin with CHANEL Beauté Initiale Eye Gel and Le Blanc de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base, followed by CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Makeup SPF 10 and Kanebo Sensai Brush Concealer.  Focusing on the eyes, she lined the eyes with CHANEL Le Crayon Kohl Intense Eye Pencil in Noir.  She curled the lashes and covered the entire lid with CHANEL Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Emerveille, letting a little go into the inner corners of the lower lid.  Then, she used CHANEL Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme to add a bright shimmering highlight to the center of the lid.  She added a soft line of black Shiseido Liquid Eyeliner at the base of the lashes to make them appear fuller, and finished the eyes with a generous amount of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir on the top and bottom lashes.  The brows were perfected with CHANEL Crayon Sourcils Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Blond Clair and Anastasia Brow Gel.  Kate highlighted the cheekbones with By Terry Rose de Rose Sheer  Liquid Blush in Coral Rose and accented the apples with Kevin Aucoin The Creamy Moist Glow Blush in Euphoria.  To finish the look, Gwyneth’s lips were defined with Kevin Aucoin The Flesh Tone Lip Pencil in Medium and Kiehl’s Lip Balm.

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet & Beauté des Ongles Matte Top Coat

chanel rouge allure velvet lipstick for fall 2011

For fall, Chanel is unveiling a new matte lipstick – Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet. The soft, yet intense rich matte color is created with the inclusion of mother-of-pearl pigments. The introductory collection of Rouge Allure Velvet includes eight shades La Ravissante, La Câline, La Raffinée, L’Exubérante, La Fascinate, La Somptueuse, La Sensuelle, L’Exquise. The non-drying matte Rouge Allure Velvet comes in a sophisticated click-open case.  The Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet lip colours will retail for $32.

The Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet collection will also include 3 Le Vernis shades, Pirate, Rose Caché, Rose Exubérant, and the introduction of Beauté des Ongles – a new topcoat that will give any shade of nail polish a matte finish.  The limited edition topcoat and Le Vernis shades will retail for $25.

I’m excited to see this collection. I’m a fan of matte lip and nail products, I think they look really sophisticated. I also love the feel of this ad – it’s so simple and chic – very Chanel. The lighting, especially the use of the spotlight, creates a very femme fatale effect.

Les Aquarelles de Chanel Makeup Collection

Les Aquarelles de Chanel Makeup CollectionLes Aquarelles de Chanel, the newest makeup collection from Chanel, is the corresponding makeup collection to the Summer haute couture collection.  You may remember, but the Chanel Spring-Summer 2011 haute couture collection was inspired by the paintings of Marie Laurencin, specifically a portrait she painted of Coco Chanel, hence the name Les Aquarelles which is French for watercolors.  The soft watercolors translated to a palette of soft pastelles and breezy fabrications of chiffon with light reflecting beading. The makeup collection to match is just as light and soft.

The highlight of the collection is the limited edition OMBRES TISSÉES a graduating color palette with beiges, pinks and peaches (creating a signature tweed effect) perfect for sweeping on eyes or cheeks (or both).  The collection also includes blushes JOUES CONTRASTE in Pink Cloud and Rose Pétale, eyeshadow OMBRE ESSENTIELLE in Gris Exquis, lipstick ROUGE COCO SHINEin Royallieu, mascara STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF in Ebene and LE VERNIS in Tendresse.

Les Aquarelles de Chanel can be purchased online on Chanel.com or in Chanel boutiques.

Anne Hathaway’s Chanel Beauty Look at the “One Day” Premiere

anne hathaway new york premiere one day

Last week Anne Hathaway looked stunning on the red carpet at the New York premiere of One Day.  Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Kate Lee works with Anne Hathaway regularly and she created this red carpet look.  Here’s how she created the look:

Annie wore a black Alexander McQueen resort collection gown with gold embroidery. The dress had a great structure to it, so we wanted to keep the look cute, young and casual.

For her face, I started with CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long Wear Makeup SPF 10 (launching October 2011), which I swept across Annie’s skin and perfected with a sponge.

On her eyes, I used Burberry sheer eye shadow in Antique Rose, which is a purplish brown that defined her socket line. I drew a thin line with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir at the base of the lashes, top and bottom, and also inside of the waterline to give an ink pot effect. Then over the top, with a small natural fiber brush, I padded CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow in Mirifique which I took to the outer corner, blending a tiny amount under the eye to soften the shape.

I curled the lashes with the new CHANEL Precision Eyelash Curler and coated her lashes with a few strokes of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara…then a few extras were added for even more intensity! Her brows were slicked into place with Anastasia Brow Gel.

I defined her cheek bones with Kevin Aucoin shading colour in Medium and I finished her look by applying CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Fetiche on the lips.

CHANEL PRODUCTS USED:
Perfection Lumière Long Wear Makeup SPF 10 (launching October 2011), $55.00
Intense Eye Pencil in Noir, $29.00
Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow in Mirifique, $36.00
Precision Eyelash Curler, $34.00
Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir, $30.00
Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Fetiche, $32.00

Olivia Wilde in Chanel Beauté at “Cowboys & Aliens” Premiere

Olivia Wilde in Chanel Beauté at "Cowboys & Aliens" Premiere

Over the weekend, the summer blockbuster Cowboys & Aliens premiered. I have to admit, the juxtaposition of cowboys with aliens is like taking two genres and mashing them up together so I’m quite curious about this move. But I digress. The real news is that Olivia Wilde is starting in the film and she wore a Chanel Beauté look to the premiere created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Melanie Ingelssis. Her romantic look was beautiful – especially paired with Ms. Wilde’s lace gown. Here’s a breakdown from the makeup artist herself on how she created Olivia’s look – and how you can replicate it.

This weekend, Celebrity Makeup Artist Melanie Ingelssis created Olivia Wilde’s red carpet look for the premiere of one of summer’s hottest new movies, “Cowboys and Aliens”.  To off-set Olivia’s romantic gown and simple hair, Melanie and Olivia decided the focus of the beauty look would be on the eyes. Using CHANEL products, Melanie created a strong smoky eye balanced by soft, luminous skin.

To enhance Olivia’s gorgeous baby blues, Melanie began by using CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil to create the shape of the smoky eye, but kept it true to Olivia’s shape as opposed to taking it out too much. She then rimmed her entire eyes, including the inside of the waterline with a thick line, also using the soft, easy-to-use kohl pencil. She then used Illusion D’Ombre Eyeshadow in Mirifique, a new long-wearing, shimmering cream eyeshadow from CHANEL, all over Olivia’s lids to create a black base. She took the cream shadow up to the crease of Olivia’s eyes and underneath, blending it with the kohl pencil so there were no harsh lines.  With a black shadow, she redefined the outer and inner areas of the eyes that needed to be darker, creating a sexy and smudgy look. Finally, according to Melanie, “the trick to a beautiful smoky eye is blending, so I took a clean blending brush – with no color on it – and with one motion, I blended the upper and lower colors together.” To complete the look, Melanie curled Olivia’s lashes and added two coats of Inimitable Intense Mascara.

Melanie began prepping Olivia’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage Regenerating Fluid to give her complexion a radiant glow. She followed with Mat Lumière Makeup SPF 15 which she chose for the foundation’s long-lasting formula. She then highlighted Olivia’s face with CHANEL Sheer Illuminating Fluid.

PRODUCTS USED:

CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow in Mirifique, $36.00
CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir, $28.00
CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir, $30.00
CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Fluid, $295.00
CHANEL Mat Lumière Long Lasting Makeup SPF 15, $54.00
CHANEL Sheer Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed, $48.00
