Not only did Anne Hathaway take home Oscar gold, she also wowed on the red carpet receiving comparisons to Audrey Hepburn!
I loved Anne’s feminine makeup and pixie ‘do. Here’s how you can recreate her look…
WHO: Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Kate Lee
INSPIRATION: My inspiration for Annie’s look came from the color of the beautiful delicate pink dress. Annie looked instantly statuesque the moment she put it on and I felt that this dress was worthy of some classical “Movie Star Beauty”. No tricks, just attention to detail, timeless beauty and glamour.
SKINCARE: Great long wearing foundation begins with proper skincare. Annie’s skin was given a good dose of hydration with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum, followed by Laura Mercier Hydrating Foundation Primer.
FOUNDATION: I wanted to make sure that we still saw the quality and texture of Annie’s skin but make sure that the velvety finish would stay put throughout. I used a combination of CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra--Ã¢â¬Â Light Skin PerfecRng Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to make the skin uniform and add luminosity. Then I used just a little CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long--Ã¢â¬ÂWear Flawless Fluid Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 only where needed. The cheekbones, jaw line, bridge of nose and crest of upper lip were highlighted using Make Up Forever UpLight. To complement the highlighting and to carve out the cheekbones, I used Illamasqua Cream Color Pigment in Hollow. Once I had my perfect canvas, I set everything in place with Cle De Peau translucent loose powder.
BLUSH: The cheeks were mainly sculpted during the application of the base, highlighter and shading color, but to finish the look and add a little flush I lightly dusted just the apples of her cheeks with CHANEL Powder Blush in Star Dust.
EYE SHADOW: I started by priming the lid with Laura Mercier’s Eye Canvas to help keep the shadow in place. The eyes were a beautiful lilac grey shadow blended into a soft almond shape that followed Annie’s socket line. I then traced a black line across the outer two thirds on the lash line and tapered it into a gentle tick.
MASCARA: I always use waterproof mascara for awards ceremonies, especially when my client is a nominee! I curled the lashes and applied one generous coat of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir from root to tip, top and bottom. Waterproof mascara generally dries faster and helps hold in the curl. I custom-made the lashes to fit Annie’s eye shape and to finish the look.
EYEBROWS: I took my time sculpting the shape. The brows were combed into shape and intensified by using Anastasia’s Brow Wiz Pencil in Brunette, which I then blended using a stiff angled brush. Once I had the shape I wanted, I added a coat of Anastasia’s Brow Gel to hold them in shape.
LIPS: Annie has full and perfectly balanced lips. I wanted to avoid matching the lips to the dress so I chose a shade slightly more intense and then blended it down till I got just the right shade. The lip color was CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Sèduisante with just a dab of concealer mixed in to make it one shade lighter. I sent her on her way with a powder puff and her lip color.
WHO: Fekkai stylist Adir Abergel,
INSPIRATION: Adir was inspired by the clean lines of Anne’s Prada gown and 1950s glamour.
