Anne Hathaway’s Makeup

Anne Hathaway wore Jouer Mineral Powder Blush in Peach Bouquet at last night’s 2013 SAG Awards.  ” The definition of the cheeks and cheekbones are synergistically a part of the complexion, and I always regard them as part of my base. For this look I wanted to create a tactile effect and to bring a beautiful apricot hue to the apples of the cheeks to offset the lip colour. I used Jouer Mineral powder blush in Peach Bouquet.” – Makeup Artist, Kate Lee

rag & bone SS 2013 featuring Kate Moss

For SS 2013, rag & bone returned to England to shoot Kate Moss in the Cotswolds. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan, the campaign captures Moss in Southrop, Gloucestershire. This rag & bone first look is SO me. Looks like I love wearing tailored inspired clothes with a hint of masculine, tom boyish. I am a big believer in the beauty of contrasting in this case feminine with masculine. The look: White Jefferson Blazer, White Winchester Shirt, White Betty Top, Black Moto Pant, Black Fender Platforms.

Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing  Cream
