For the premiere of Never Let Me Go in London, Keira wore a CHANEL Haute Couture gown made exclusively from pearls. Pearls are classic, timeless and chic, I wanted all of these qualities to work with the make up to create and iconic image that would still look current years from now.

Last week, Keira Knightley attended the London premier of her new film Never Let Me Go in a stunning Chanel couture gown made of pearls. As the launch of the new Coco Mademoiselle ad campaign featuring Ms. Knightley nears, we can be sure to see her sporting Chanel at many upcoming events. Chanel celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee coordinated the couture dress with an equally stunning look. She shared…
Keira is one of my favorite canvasses, she has a magnificent bone structure, and beautiful features, so its always hard to choose which one to play up! I went with eyes, as I thought a strong elegant eye would look great with her new cut. To make it slightly more modern, I used only cream shadows, a mixture of CHANEL Intense Eye Liner in Noir inside the eye and along the bottom and top lash line. I also crept it up onto the outer third of the socket to add depth, after lots of gentle blending I added in Nars creme shadow from the Thebes Duo to the centre of the lid, and also to the brow bone to add a glow and create dimension. Finally, I curled the lashes, gave the lashes a generous coat of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir, and then added a few clumps of Ardel lashes in a random pattern. The final effect was dramatic but modern. Her lips were CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Perle, and I sculpted her cheeks with CHANEL Powder Blush in Imprévu.
