Kate Lee created Oscar winner Anne Hathaway's marvelous makeup look. Says Lee, "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. "
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.
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-‐
Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to make
the skin uniform and add luminosity. Then I used just a li le
CHANEL Perfect on Lumière Long-‐Wear 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.
The cheeks were mainly sculpted during the application of the base, highlighter and shading color, but to finish
the look and add a li le flush I lightly dusted just the apples of her cheeks with CHANEL Powder Blush in Star Dust.
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 so 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 flick.
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 Brune, 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.
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 until 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.
What did you think of Anne Hathaway's makeup at the Oscars? And are you an Anne Hathaway hater? I was always on team her until the "It came true!" moment. It seemed the opposite of modest. That said, her win was well deserved. Talk to me in the comments.
