CATE BLANCHETT looked so ethereal on the green carpet for the royal performance of " The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" in London! The Australian beauty wore head-to-toe Givenchy, which was complimented with a chignon and a flawless makeup palette. Makeup artist Mary Greenwell teamed up with Cate for the evening and shared her step-by-step process for getting Cate ready with The Fashion Court!
"The gown that Cate wore at the premiere demanded nothing more than simplicity. It was striking, futuristic, but demure and showed her lovely back with a high neckline in front. Strong makeup would have taken away from the elegant that is her signature, and the naturalness of her beauty," Mary explained.

Step 1: First things first, let's start with your skin. Splash the face with SK-11 Facial Treatment Essence---it feels great and fresh; it wakes the skin up! We then moisturized with SK-11 LXP Ultimate Revival Cream, which works wonderfully under makeup. Next, I used SUQQU Frame Fix Cream Foundation in No. 10. It's gorgeously pale and creamy all over Cate's flawless skin. This is a lovely thin foundation; it works perfectly on Cate.
LESLIE MANN rocked the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of "This Is 40" in a cool color-block gown and a playful Cinderella-esque up 'do. Leslie worked with makeup artist Georgie Eisdell to ensure a beautiful and fresh palette, which would further compliment her look rather than overpower it. Georgie shared her tips and the products she used on Leslie, and we're totally obsessing over these lip colors!
"For the premiere of This is 40, I wanted Leslie’s look to have a radiance about it, keeping with her personality. I also wanted to encapsulate her natural beauty and give it an edge," Georgie explained her beauty inspiration for Leslie!

"To achieve this, I prepped the skin with La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream, giving her skin hydration and a glow. Using CHANEL Vitalumière Moisture Rich Radiance Fluid Makeup I evened out her skin tone. Adding a small amount of La Mer The Powder to take the edge of the shine.
Her eyes were my main focus. I enhanced her almond eye shape with Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink. Keeping the eye lids clean
