To get Anne's exact lip color, Lee mixed a trio of the brand's lip shades to get just the right hue: Rouge Allure in Rouge Noir ($34), a black red; Rouge Allure Velvet in La Somptueuse ($33), a deep, warm red; and Rouge Allure in Palpitante ($34), a raspberry red.
Three may be a crowd when it comes to dating and apartment living, but it when it comes to lip color, three's a winner. The reason is because the warm and cool shades form a neutral tone, while the deep red shade gives it all some backbone and edge. So the next time you can't seem to get your lip color your ideal shade, try this warm, cool, and dark technique.
Keira Knightley was a vision of classic beauty at the premiere of Anna Karenina last night. The actress's hair was styled in a sleek side part, which complemented her full brows and bold red lipstick. But it was her full, lush lashes that garnered the most attention, proving that defined bottom eyelashes are still on trend. "We wanted the look to be classic and beautiful," said Chanel celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee.
To achieve the eye look, Lee swept on Laura Mercier Caviar Eyeliner in Navy ($22) and then blended Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow in Lagons ($58) to extend the line. For the long, flirty lashes, Lee applied two coats of Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir ($30, available Nov. 13) after curling. For the doll-like lower lashes Keira wears so well, hold your mascara wand vertically and apply the pigment in downward strokes. This eye makeup and lipstick pairing is perfect for holiday partying and looks classic on everyone.
"Anne wore a white, statuesque, [Prabal Gurung] gown for the NYC premiere, and I wanted to make sure that her beauty was every bit as timeless as her dress," Chanel celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee said. To do this, Lee applied the brand's Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Rivoli ($33) as a stain on the lips, blotting to achieve the desired amount of intensity. To keep it from going too flat, she then dabbed on Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour cream for moisture. "The result was a beautiful rosy hue," she said.
To complete the palette, Lee used soft vanilla shadow and black cake liner on the eyes, along with a coral-peach blush on the cheeks.
"The dress was so magnificent, we just decided that she needed to look effortless, and that the lip should look 'bitten,'" explained Chanel celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee. To bring the concept to life, Lee applied the brand's Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Colour in La Somptueuse ($32), a brownish-red, as a stain. The apples of the cheeks were given a creamy glow with Kevyn Aucoin's Tresbelle blush, and black eyeliner and mascara — no eye shadow was used at all — completed the modern-classic palette.
