Chanel Beauté at the 2011 SAG Awards

Last night at the SAG Awards, Dianna Agron wore vintage Chanel Haute Couture and four actresses wore Chanel Beauté makeup: Hilary Swank, Nicole Kidman, January Jones and Dianna Agron. Read below to find out each makeup artists inspiration and the tips/tools they used to achieve the gorgeous looks…


DIANNA AGRON/Makeup Artist Kate Lee

Beauty Inspiration:
“Dianna wore a vintage CHANEL Haute Couture dress in navy with a black lace overlay. I wanted to make Dianna appear fresh and up to date.”

Get the Look:
“I started by using CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Ambre to smoke put the inner lid, then gently blended it onto the upper and lower lash line. I worked over the top with CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Cinnamon, a dark burgundy shade. On the inner third of the lid I used grey shimmery tone from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Enigma. I blended and melted the colours away from the socket. Lashes were curled and given one coat of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir-Brun. I finished off the eye by sculpting Dianna’s brows with Anastasia’s brow pencil and tinted brow gel. I then applied a layer of CHANEL Hydramax + Active Serum, followed by Nars oil free primer. I perfected the skin with CHANEL Vitalumiere Moisture-Rich Fluid Makeup. On the apple of the cheek I used CHANEL Powder Blush in Fresque which is a beautiful peach shade that shines pink and adds a really pretty dimension to the cheek. On the lips I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine.


JANUARY JONES/Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin

Beauty Inspiration:
“I wanted January’s makeup to have a shimmering, candlelit quality to it. I was inspired by her black and gold lace dress which had a very decadent romantic feeling to it. I used different shades of gilded metallics and reflective textures on her eyes, cheeks, and lips”

Get the Look:
“I lined her eyes with CHANEL Precision Eye Definer in Gris Scintillant, a sparkling pewter pencil blending all the way into the crease along with a pale gold cream color to her upper lids and inner eyes. Her cheek and brow bones were brushed with Soleil Tan De CHANEL Moisturizing Bronzing Powder for soft radiant highlights. I finished with CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Lip Colour in Boy on her lips, a delicate luminous petal pink.”

NICOLE KIDMAN/Makeup Artist Angela Levin

Beauty Inspiration:
“Nicole’s dress at the 2011 SAG Awards reminded me of a sexy super movie star, gorgeousness and simplicity were my inspiration.”

Get the Look:
“First, I prepped Nicole’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage Concentrate. To complement her sexy black dress, I wanted her eyes and lips to stand out. I framed her eyes with a dark liner made from the deepest shade in the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Stupendous. To really make her eyes pop, I then applied three coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir. On her lips I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Lip Colour in Monte-Carlo.”

HILARY SWANK/Makeup Artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua & Manicurist Tom Bachik

Kara’s Beauty Inspiration:
“Hilary’s look was inspired by 70′s screen goddess, Ursula Andrews. She wore a Versace one shoulder soft champagne toned dress with caramel beaded detail.”

Get the Look:
“Hilary’s eyes were extended out with CHANEL Eye Definer in Brun-Cuivre blended along entire upper lashline and lower lashline, on outer half of eye and into crease to create the more graphic shape of the 60′s/70′s lined eye. I finished off the eyes with CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir and Ardell individual lashes on the outer half of eyes. Her cheeks are warmed up with a peachy tone, CHANEL Powder Blush in Fresque. I kept the lips softly lined with CHANEL Lip Definer in Beige, and moistened with CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Lip Colour in Canotier.”

Tom Bachik used CHANEL Nail Colour in Inattendu on Hilary’s nails.

Dianna Agron in Vintage Chanel Haute Couture at the SAG Awards

Finally some Chanel Haute Couture on the red carpet!  Glee actress, Dianna Agron shimmered in a navy and black vintage Chanel Haute Couture gown.  Navy and black is a dangerous combination but when done right it shines – literally.  I love the silhouette, the beaded lace overlay, the bow at the waist and the length.  Dianna Agron wears it well.  She paired her Chanel dress with Ferragamo shoes, Fred Leighton jewels and a Ferragamo clutch.  Nicely done!

Chanel Beauté at the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards

Last night was the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards Ceremony and the Chanel office has shared some of the celebrity makeup tips – straight from the Chanel makeup artists. Check out details and info on products and how to get the look below.

ANNE HATHAWAY / Makeup Artist Kate Lee

Beauty Inspiration:
“Anne wore a nude rose sequin gown. The dress featured a strong shoulder, so I wanted to make sure the make up was approachable and feminine to allow the dress its full attention.”

Beauty Tip:
“I used CHANEL Sublimage Concentrate to add an intense boost of hydration to the skin. Next I used Nars Oil free pro prime to help the make up to stay put. The foundation was CHANEL Vitalumiere Fluid Makeup, I love its dewy finish. I used Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting powder in Medium to pop Annie’s cheekbones. On the eyes, I used CHANEL Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Sand, which is like a toasty rose gold. In the socket I added depth by adding a little taupe shadow. I curled the lashes, applied one soft coat of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir, my go-to for all award shows! Her lips were prepped with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Lip Care, then blotted and given a coat of CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Mademoiselle, and then topped with CHANEL Coco Shine in Bel Ami which gave the rose a violet hue. (Available in April). I tucked the lip color plus the CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder compact inside her purse, and off she went!”
