CHANEL Beauté and its Makeup Artist, Jeanine Lobell, created Natalie Portman’s makeup look for the 2009 Academy Awards.
Beauty Inspiration: “My inspiration for Natalie on Oscar night was her dress… The colour was a fantastic orchid, and being Rodarte, I wanted to do cool punk rock sexy fairy make up.”
How to get Natalie Portman’s Oscars 2009 red carpet makeup look: Jeanine was going for a smoky eye, and used CHANEL Silky Eye Shadow Duo in Orient Express. She used the pale pink as a base and the dark purple smoked around the eye on the lid and smudged in lower lash line. She added CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir inside the eye, and lots of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir-Black for thick sexy lashes.
Jeanine Lobell used CHANEL Perfect Brows in Brun, using the two colours to make a strong brow, but keeping it soft. Jeanine then used CHANEL Powder Blush in Narcisse, a flattering, bright pink shade, high on the cheek bones. She then added CHANEL Glossimer in Galactic for a more pale lavender lip. Finally, for a sexy, bronze sheen, Jeanine applied CHANEL Sheer Brilliance in Sunkissed on Natalie’s arms, shoulders, and décolleté.
