All eyes were on KRISTEN STEWART as she arrived for the Chanel Spring/Summer 2015 Haute Couture fashion show, held during Paris Fashion Week in a crisp white paneled dress and trendy platform oxfords. The 24-year-old “Still Alice” actress looked pretty and refreshed sporting a beauty look made up of tousled waves, inky blue nails, and a captivating stare.
Kristen’s makeup artist EMMA KOTCH gave the star a smouldering eye using comics blues and shimmery pearl from Chanel’s beauty line, and was kind enough to dish the details to The Fashion Court on how she achieved the look.
THE SKIN & CHEEKS: Emma first prepped Kristen’s skin with the new CHANEL HYDRA BEAUTY Micro Sérum Intense Replenishing Hydration before applying Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré moisturizer. For foundation, she used CHANEL VITALUMIÈRE AQUA Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Suncreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in No°10 and highlighted with the Madina Milano Chic & Shine Stick.
Laura Mercier ‘Secret Camouflage’ Concealer in SC-2 was gently applied underneath Kristen’s eyes and to conceal the odd blemish. Emma added a pretty natural-looking pink tinge to Kristen’s cheeks using Le Blush Crème De Chanel in 64 Inspiration; she then set the makeup with a touch of CHANEL LES BEIGES Healthy Glow Sheer Colour SPF 15 powder in No°30.
THE EYES: Emma blended a black pencil around Kristen’s eyes; the top and bottom as well as the inner corners of the eye. She used a little CHANEL LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eyeshadow in Bleu Celestes to create the shape before blending CHANEL ILLUSION D’OMBRE Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Appartion was blended around the eye, focusing the depth at the outer edge of the eye.
Emma then highlighted the inner corner of Kristen’s eye with the same cream highlighter she used earlier. A couple of coats of CHANEL INIMITABLE INTENSE Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel Sophistiqué in Noir completed the look.
THE LIPS: To achieve a soft petal shade, Emma gently outlined the lips with the Dolce & Gabanna Precision Lipliner in Nude 1 before filling in with CHANEL ROUGE COCO Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Cheri.
THE NAILS: Emma applied Chanel Le Vernis Nail Color in Orage (631), a deep grey blue lacquer with a gorgeous smoky tone that was the perfect complement to Kristen’s eyeshadow. This color comes from the Fall/Winter 2014 beauty collection, and it’s still available at www.Chanel.com.
Special thanks to Emma Kotch!
