CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua worked with Rachel Weisz for her premiere of  The Lovely Bones on Monday, December 7, 2009.

Thanks to CHANEL Beauté Talking Makeup has the scoop on how to get Rachel’s makeup look!

“I was inspired by the colour of Rachel’s dress which was calling out for a perfectly red lip! I chose the semi-matte CHANEL Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon. I love this shade because it is a very pigmented blue true red, perfect with Rachel’s fair skin, and can be worn very sheer yet give vivid colour. I wanted shimmery soft eyes to be tonal with the colour of the dress so a not to compete with the lips. CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow in Murano has the most beautiful greenish-grey shimmers that accent Rachel’s dark hair and brown eyes. CHANEL Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Rose gives her a soft hint of colour in the apples of her cheeks. Finally, CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir-Black opens up her eyes by lengthening and separating her already thick lashes without any clumps!”

For her bottom lashes, I took the tip of the mascara wand and carefully coated each lash for definition, then brushed it out with the wand for separation. I finished by applying mark I-mark Custom Pick Eyeshadow in Nomadic to her lids and Fairy Dust in her crease.”

Dolce & Gabbana The Make Up- Fall and Holiday Collections

Introducing the Romantic Collection for Fall 2009 and the Golden Beams Collection for Holiday 2009: two new collections showcasing new colours, new attitude and new direction. Inspired by Dolce & Gabbana’s gravitation toward surrealism, each palette embraces a bold insouciance and a sexy spontaneity that challenges the archetypal face of beauty with the revolutionary Dolce & Gabbana aesthetic.

Created for the Dolce & Gabbana woman who seeks a look that’s at once disarmingly assertive and simultaneously seductive, The Make Up captures implicit femininity and explicit sensuality, specially designed for the woman who chooses a life of passion, full-on glamour and ultimate luxury. She aspires to perfection and achieves it; takes risks and succeeds.



The Romantic Collection – Fall 2009

Inspired by Surrealism, the Dolce & Gabbana A/W 09 runway collection echoes both revolutionary sensibility and rebellious spirit. Just as the Surrealists eschewed the conventional to embrace the unpredictable and explore the unimaginable, Dolce & Gabbana break the rules both on the runway and with a new collection of Make Up for fall, tracing the fine line between dreams and reality to create an innovative glamour that teases and provokes.

“We worship the surrealists; they pushed the limits-and proved that anything is possible,” says Stefano Gabbana, “With the Romantic Collection, the idea is to break away from the expected to transform beauty, creating a look that is about ultimate fantasy.”
