Blake Lively looked nothing short of amazing— does this woman ever look bad??— when she attended Chanel’s “Fête d’Hiver” Benefit last week.
Makeup artist Angela Levin took inspiration for Blake Lively’s makeup look from the actress’s Chanel diamond camelia brooch.
“I wanted her eyes to be dark and sexy, but the rest of her face to be light and fresh. She’s young and sexy and wears a smoky eye so well!”, says Levin.
To acheive that “light and fresh” look, Levin used Chanel Lift Lumiere Fluid Makeup in Beige ($65, chanel.com) all over her face, and set it with Poudre Cristalline Translucent Powder ($60, macys.com). On her cheeks she dusted on Chanel Blush Duo in Tweed Rose.
For her eyes, bronze and sand shade eyeshadows were used as well as a deep plum shade that added dimension in the crease.Blake’s eyes were lined on the upper and lower lashes with a black shimmer liner and three coats of mascara. To finish the look, a soft pink lip was created with Chanel Rouge Allure in Mythic ($30, chanel.com), a fabulous nude shade, topped with a bit of Rouge Allure Laque in Ming ($32, nordstrom.com).
