Inspiration: Keira wore a beautiful cream colored CHANEL Haute-Couture gown, embellished with pale pink crystals. Keira is such an inspiration and I love to play up her features, so this evening I decided on a smoldering metallic eye with rose gold highlights, paired with a beautiful deep rose lip.

Skin: I prepped Keira’s skin by using CHANEL Hydra Serum Micro Sérum (available February 2015), which has tiny drops of Camélia oil to hydrate and plump the skin. It’s so decadent!

Foundation: I followed the serum with a light application of CHANEL Perfection Lumière Velvet Smooth-Effect Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to diffuse the light and give her a beautiful velvety complexion. The final step was a dusting of CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour to help keep things in place.

Blush: On the cheekbones I used CHANEL Le Blush Crème de Chanel in Cheeky which is a beautiful bronze rose.

Eyes: For the eyes I used a combination of colors from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Tissé Rivoli starting with the darkest color in the outer third of her eye socket and along the lower lash line. I used the mid-tone for the center of the eyelid and added a slight highlight to the crest of the brow bone using the lightest shade. In the inner corners, I added a few highlights with CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Emerveillé.

Mascara: I applied CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof in Noir to the upper and lower lashes. I added a few individual lashes to the outer corners of her eyes.

Brows: I groomed the brows into place with a clear brow gel.

Lips: On Keira’s lips I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Marie (available March 2015), which I used as a stain first, blotting and then intensifying the center of the lip.
