Beauty Breakdown Oscar Makeup 2011: Michelle Williams

“Michelle’s skin is so fresh and beautiful. I applied Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup in B10, which allows her skin to shine though the makeup, creating a fresh look. I set the makeup with Chanel Natural Finished Press Pressed Powder in Translucent 1. For eyes, we went for a light, ethereal smoky look mixing the shades in the Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow in Smoky Eyes. I used the silvery shade as a base, and then used the pewter shade, taking it from the lash line up into the crease, adding shape to the eye. I then smudged the same shade in the lower lash line. I used the black shade, blended into the pewter, as a liner. I applied a few individual lashes in the center, and a lot of Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir on the top and bottom. I used the Chanel Precision Brow Definer in Blond Claireto define the brow. To create a glowing pink cheek, I applied Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Pink Tweed. I mixed her lip colour, Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Rose Dentelle, with a bit of the Vitalumiere Aqua foundation, which creates the effect of the lips blending into the face.” -makeup artist Jeanine Lobell
