Chanel Looks
You could see the beautiful Chanel promo image on the cover of Summer’s Makup4All issue. And
here are several looks of celebrities created with makeup by Chanel. All the looks are from 2010 Cos-
tume Institute Gala which took place in May in New York.

Emma Watson
Makeup Artist Fulvia Farolfi
Beauty Inspiration: “Emma wore a sculpted,
one shoulder white gown with a tight waist,
beautiful draping and bold zip in the back.
Quite modern, yet classic. We felt that makeup
called for a smoky eye and a warm skin tone,
soft cheeks and pale lips. She wanted to look
modern and diversify from her usual romantic

Fulvia prepped Emma’s skin with CHANEL
Sublimage Serum. As a base, she applied
CHANEL Teinte Innocence in Beige, topped
with a bit of CHANEL Natural Finish Loose
Powder in Clair.

The cheeks were a soft pink with CHANEL
Powder Blush in Rose Petale.

On the eyes, Fulvia used a new eye shadow
palette from the Fall collection CHANEL
Quadra Eyeshadow in Enigma. She used the
rose shade in inner corner and below the brow,
metallic grey on top and bottom lids, and the
metallic plum near the roots of the lashes. She
finished the eyes with two coats of CHANEL
Inimitable Mascara in Noir.

She completed the look with a pale beige lip,
CHANEL Rouge Allure in Mythic.

SUMMER/2010 25
Chanel Looks
Naomi Watts
Makeup Artist Fulvia Farolfi
Beauty Inspiration: “Naomi wore a stunning ma-
genta silk one shoulder gown, with a pleated big
bow on the one shoulder. For the make up we
felt like a light eye and bright lip would comple-
ment the look. With her fair complexion, blue
eyes and blonde hair, it is my favorite look on
her. We did not want to make it look retro.

Fulvia prepped Naomi’s skin with CHANEL
Ultra Correction Line Repair Day Cream. The
base was CHANEL Pro Lumiere Professional
Finish Makeup in Nude, and CHANEL Eclat Lu-
miere Highlighter Face Pen in Beige Tendre.

CHANEL Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed
Pink to the apples of the cheeks

She applied CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in
Ivory all over the lid, and lined the eyes very
close to the top lashes with CHANEL Long-Last-
ing Eyeliner in Ebene. Finally, Fulvia applied
two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in
Noir, to make the eyes pop.

Bold, red lip were achieved with CHANEL
Rouge Coco in Cambon.

26 SUMMER/2010
January Jones
Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin
Beauty Inspiration: “The inspiration for Janu-
ary’s look was her dress. I wanted the makeup
to be dramatic with a futuristic edge.”

Rachel prepped January’s skin with CHANEL
Sublimage Fluid.

The cheeks were sculpted with CHANEL Mois-
turizing Bronzing Powder in Terre Ambre – no
blush colour.

She used shades of blue and grey from the
CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Bleu Celeste
all the way up into the eyebrow and toward the
hairline as a bold singular statement.

Her lips were totally nude but hydrated with
CHANEL Rouge Allure in Mythic

SUMMER/2010 27
Chanel Looks
Kate Bosworth
Makeup Artist Kate Lee
Beauty Inspiration: “I was inspired by Kate’s
Valentino dress, and I wanted to give her a retro,
30’s style makeup look.”

Her cheeks were CHANEL Powder Blush in Im-
prevu which she applied to the cheekbones and
across the bridge of the nose.

CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Clair, inside the
eyes to pop their amazing colours! She then used
CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Taupe
Grisé, from the lash line to the brow bone, gently
gradating as she went.(both items from Fall 2010
collection). She blended almost up the brow
bone and mirrored under the lower lash line to
complete the gentle wash of colour. Lashes were
curled, and a generous coating of CHANEL
Inimitable Mascara in Noir completed the eyes.

Finally, on her lips she used CHANEL Rouge
Coco in Rose Comete, a soft blue pink.

28 SUMMER/2010
Sienna Miller
Makeup Artist Kate Lee
Beauty Inspiration: “Sienna wore a beautiful
navy blue dress. We were channeling Brigitte
Bardot and decided to do a 60’s influenced eye.
I used navy colours to make it a little more mod-

Kate prepped Sienna’s skin with CHANEL Hy-
dramax + Active Cream.

CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Bronze on the
apples of her cheeks.

She used CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Marine
by wetting the tip then filling in the upper lids
to form the base and depth of Sienna’s 60’s ink
pot eyes. On top she pressed in the navy shade
from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Bleu
Celeste, blending in a very controlled manner,
so not to lose the oval shape.

The lips were CHANEL Rouge Allure in
