Keira Knightley looked like a fairy princess straight out of a mystical garden when she attended the Los Angeles Film Festival premiere of her new movie “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” in her Fall 2012 Valentino dress and a red floral metal halo headband from the Chanel 2012/2013 Cruise Collection.

“We decided the look should be bright and clean with a few gentle hues of colour,” Chanel celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee said regarding the inspiration behind Keira’s soft look, which complimented her beautiful outfit.

GET THE LOOK:

“I prepped Keira’s skin with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Sérum, then applied CHANEL UV Essential SPF 50 for sun protection, but also providing a base for makeup. I used a tiny amount of CHANEL Vitalumiére Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 to even out her skin tone and add luminescence to the complexion.

On cheek bones, bridge of nose, inside corners of the eyes and the crest of the upper lip, I used MAKE UP FOR EVER Uplight Face Luminizer Gel to create luminosity and brightness. On the cheeks, I used By Terry Rose de Rose cheek tint to add a pink shine, and then on the apples only, I used CHANEL Jouse Contraste Powder Blush in Tumulte to pop the pink.

On Keira’s eyes, I added a peach pink shadow to the outer third of her socket and blended softly under the eye. In the center of the lid, CHANEL Illusion D’Ombré Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Abstraction (available November 2012) was the perfect pink peach to add some shimmery dimension.

Lashes were curled with CHANEL Precision Eyelash Curler, and given a light coat of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara to just the base of the lashes, which helps hold the curl. Then I used a selection of strip and individual lashes to create soft, natural-looking lashes. On the lips was a mixture of CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Liberte, mixed with CHANEL Rouge Coco Baume.”

What did you think of Keira’s look? Would you try it?
