Keira Knightley stunned on the red carpet of the UK premiere for Anna Karenina last night wearing a pale rose pink Chanel Couture gown. With her hair in a soft French twist, Chanel makeup artist Lisa Eldridge chose to do a soft, romantic makeup look to flatter the gorgeous dress. Eldridge explained her inspiration behind the look — and exactly what she used — on her makeup blog, and we dissected it so that everyone can copy this effortless smokey eye.
Eldridge said that she wanted to start with a flawless base for Knightley, so she used Chanel’s Perfection Lumiere in 10 Beige, applying it in thin layers with a brush. She then used concealer where needed and at “the high points of the face to highlight and shape.”
For the eyes, Eldridge began with a perfect liquid line along the upper lashes using Ecriture De Chanel – 10 Noir keeping the liner really thin at the inner corner but building up about a third of the way along. At the outer corner, Eldridge elongated the liner with a “small kitten flick.” She mixed two shades across the lids from the Ombres Contraste Duo in Gris until it was a soft silver/grey and added a pale pink shadow into the socket line to soften the look. To finish the look, she added Inimitable Intense Mascara in 10 Noir.
