Get Anne Hathaway’s ‘Timeless’ Chanel Makeup Look

Anne Hathaway is talented, smart, stylish and gorgeous, so it’s no surprise that many of you wanted tips on how to recreate her look.

Chanel makeup artist Kate Lee created what she calls a “timeless” look for Anne Hathaway at New York’s The Dark Knight Rises premiere, topped off by a rosy lip and a bold brow.

Skincare:
Lee started out by prepping the skin with Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum, quickly following with an oil-free primer to lock in the moisture.

Foundation:
Lee used two foundations: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 as a light veil around the periphery and then for the areas where she wanted a little more coverage, she used Chanel Perfection Lumiere Long Wear Fluid Makeup SPF 10, which was applied with a nylon brush and blended out with a Beauty Blender sponge.

Blush:
Chanel Powder Blush in Espiegle gave cheeks the perfect flush.

Eye Shadow:
Anne’s lids were given a gentle wash of color with a soft vanilla shadow, and the brow bone was highlighted with Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Ivory.

Eyeliner:
The lash line was traced with a small brush and Lee used black cake liner.

Mascara:
The lashes were curled with the Chanel Precision Eyelash Curler, and given two generous coats of Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara top and bottom. I then added a few soft faux lashes on the top lash for fullness.

Brows:
Lee used Anastasias Brow Gel to set the brows in place then feathered in a little to perfect their shape.

Lips:
Anne’s pretty lip came from Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Rivoli, used as a stain, blotting and applying until she got the desired intensity. Lee then added a dab of Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream to add moisture. The result was a beautiful rosy hue.

Kristen Bell In Valentino – 2012 People’s Choice Awards

Kristen Bell attended the 2012 People’s Choice Awards, which was held at L.A.’s Nokia Theater this evening.

Like Ashley Greene, the blond actress also opted for leather and lace wearing a red Valentino Spring 2012 dress with a leather skirt and lace embroidered sheer yoke.

The one part sweet, one part edgy red dress was paired Christian Louboutin nude pumps with gold toe-caps.

Although the dress was cute I would’ve preferred a topknot.

Kristen sported wavy locks that looked a tad ungroomed.

Celebrities Love…Coloured Leather Coats

As winter quickly approaches, celebs know that it’s all about the right coat.

However, a basic trench isn’t going to cut it.

Instead, fashionistas are all about coloured leather coats. While leather may not be the warmest fabric, it sure does look super chic.

The piece may have a luxe look, but it’s also very versatile. So, it comes as no surprise that this trend has been seen on and off the red carpet.

Since this isn’t your typical black coat, avoid looking too costumey by not wearing matching coloured heels à la Lady Gaga. Instead, try black boots like Rachel Zoe.

You can also take a cue from Blake Lively and step foot into the wild side by teaming it with snakeskin heels.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley kept her look simple with a rock n’ roll edge by adding leather pants.

It’s not that ease to find coloured leather coats, but we found these three.

Kerry Washington In Marchesa – Glamour’s 2011 Women Of The Year Awards

Kerry Washington was also out to enjoy Glamour’s 2011 Women of the Year Awards in New York City.

The actress always knows how to stun on the red carpet.

Her lemon Resort 2012 Marchesa strapless dress with a daring thigh-high split, cascade front and embroidered waist detail was no exception.

Although the colour of the gown is very summery, this hue works as it complemented her skin tone beautifully.

She paired her frock with a white opal beaded Marchesa clutch and diamond earrings.

Kerry’s favourite Christian Louboutin nude pointy heels and a wavy updo completed her choice of accessories for the night.

Despite its summery nature, the overall look was without doubt sensational.

Lea Michele In Jenny Packham – Glamour’s 2011 Women Of The Year Awards

Lea Michele strutted down the red carpet at Glamour’s 2011 Women of the Year Awards that took place last night at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

While the ‘Glee’ star usually looks like she is trying too hard to look fashionable, this time around she sparkled in a champagne-coloured Jenny Packham gown.

The blush pink v-front gown was adorned with crystal floral appliqués and sequin details.

Since the design was already so shiny, Lea skipped any statement gems and opted for two Tiffany rings – one on each hand.

A bold red lip colour prevented her look from being too princessy.

A Jimmy Choo clutch, loose waves and rosy cheeks provided the finishing touches.
