“Venus inspired, a sexy and naked look.”

How-To:
Vivian first used CHANEL Sublimage Essential Revitalizing Concentrate to prepare Blake’s skin. Next, she lightly swiped CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Désert across her face and added Guerlain Terracotta Concealer 02.

On the apples of her cheeks, Vivian used Stila Petunia Blush and lightly brushed CHANEL Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in Terre Ambre over her nose, forehead and jawline. She then layered Becca Mermaid Shimmering Eyeshadow and the gold shade from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Spices on the eye and finished with CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir. The look was completed with CHANEL Rouge Allure Gloss in Genie and CHANEL Glossimer in Pensée.

Michelle Williams Wears Chanel Couture to the Oscars


Last night at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams wore a pale grey Chanel Haute Couture gown. From afar the gown looked very simple and chic (and very on point on the minimalism trend) but upon closer examination you could see the exquisite details of the beading on her gown. Finally, someone wore Chanel Haute Couture on the red carpet! It was a lovely dress and she should definitely top a best dressed list.

I went through the runway images and couldn’t find this exact dress – it is of course couture and made for her – so it seems that Karl Lagerfeld may have tweaked an existing design. Of course I always have something to say and if I were choosing an Oscar gown I probably would have gone with a different look but it was definitely a step up from her daisys at the Golden Globes!

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!”
