Keira Knightley’s ‘Seeking A Friend For The End of The World’ Chanel Makeup

Keira Knightley was radiant at the ‘Seeking A Friend For The End of The World’ LA premiere.

Part of that was down to her Valentino gown, but it was also partly because of her flawless makeup by Chanel celebrity makeup artist Katie Lee.

Katie decided the look should be bright and clean with a few gentle hues of colour.

Skincare: Keira’s skin was prepped with Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum, then Chanel UV Essentiel SPF 50 was applied for sun protection, but also to provide a base for makeup.

Foundation: Using a tiny amount of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 evened out Keira’s skin tone and added luminescence to the complexion. On her cheek bones, the bridge of her nose, the inside corners of the eyes and the crest of the upper lip, Katie used Make Up Forever Up Light to create luminosity and brightness.

Blush: Terry Rose De Rose cheek tint added a pink shine, with Chanel Powder Blush in Tumulte to pop the pink on the apples.

Eye shadow: On Keira’s eyes, Katie added a peach-pink shadow to the outer third of her socket and blended it softly under the eye. In the centre of the lid, Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Abstraction (available November 2012) was the perfect pink peach to add some shimmery dimension.

Mascara: Lashes were curled with Chanel Precision Eyelash Curler, and given a light coat of Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara just at the base of the lashes which helps hold the curl, then a selection of strip and individual lashes was used to create soft natural-looking lashes.

Lips: On the lips was a mixture of Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Liberte, mixed with Chanel Rouge Coco Baume.

Hair Piece: A red floral metal headband from the Chanel Cruise 2013 Collection provided the finishing touch.

    When you’re this gorgeous, you can get away with wearing a child’s crayon.
