Want Anne Hathaway's natural glowy look from last night's Golden Globes? Hathaway, along with A-listers including Sandra Bullock, Michelle Williams, Nicole Kidman, and January Jones wore Chanel Beauté to the Globes—and we've got the scoop on exactly how each of their makeup artists created their looks.
Hathaway's makeup artist Kate Lee says: "Anne wore a nude rose sequin gown. The dress featured a strong shoulder, so I wanted to make sure the make up was approachable and feminine to allow the dress its full attention.
"I used Chanel Sublimage Concentrate ($425) to add an intense boost of hydration to the skin. Next I used Nars oil-free pro prime ($33) to help the make up to stay put. The foundation was Chanel Vitalumiere Fluid Makeup ($54), I love its dewy finish. I used Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting powder ($42) in Medium to pop Annie's cheekbones. On the eyes, I used Chanel Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow ($32) in Sand, which is like a toasty rose gold. In the socket I added depth by adding a little taupe shadow. I curled the lashes, applied one soft coat of Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara ($30) in Noir, my go-to for all award shows! Her lips were prepped with Chanel Hydramax + Active Lip Care ($45), then blotted and given a coat of Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour ($32) in Mademoiselle, and then topped with Chanel Coco Shine in Bel Ami (available in April) which gave the rose a violet hue. I tucked the lip color plus the Chanel Natural Finish Pressed Powder ($45) compact inside her purse, and off she went!"
Sandra Bullock's makeup artist Angela Levin says: "My inspiration for Sandra was rock and roll with just a touch of disco. Sandra and I agreed that a strong semi rock and roll eye with a touch of glamour would work well using similar colors that are in the jewels and dress and taking in consideration the bangs and hairstyle."
"I prepped Sandra's skin with the Chanel Sublimage Concentrate ($425), and then applied Chanel Hydramax + Active Cream ($72). On her eyes I used a combination of all colors from the Ombres Perlees de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette, using the dark shades on the outside and working my way in to the lightest. I lined her eyes with Chanel Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($29) in Ebene, and then applied two coats of Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara ($30) in Noir. I powdered her face with Chanel Natural Finish Pressed Powder, and Chanel Blush Duo ($45) Tweed Effect in Tweed Pink. Finally, on her lips I used Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour ($32) in Chintz."
Nicole Kidman's makeup artist Angela Levin says: "Nicole's dress was a stunning, elegant white gown, so I wanted to add a bit of edge with the makeup. I prepped the Nicole’s skin with Chanel Sublimage Concentrate ($425), and applied Chanel Pro Lumiere Makeup ($54) in Nude. On her eyes I used the Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow ($57) in Winter Nights, and three coats of Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir. Her cheeks were Chanel Powder Blush ($43) in In Love. I finished off her lips with Chanel Rouge Allure Laque ($32) in Ming."
Michelle Williams' makeup artist Jeanine Lobell says: "We were inspired by the classic beauty of Jean Seberg and Mia Farrow. Luminous fresh skin was key, and a super lashed eye gave a nod to those classic beauties. A fresh coral lip kept the look modern and new."
"As a base, I used a new foundation from Chanel, Vitalumiere Aqua in B10 (available this March). It's a super light, sheer formula with great coverage. On Michelle's cheeks, I used Chanel Powder Blush in Espiegle, a beautiful shimmery pink-coral. Her eyes were Kevyn Aucoin Essential Eye Shadow Palette ($55) #2, and applied two coats of Kevyn Aucoin Lash Curler Volume Mascara ($25). I set her brows with Chanel Perfect Brows ($65). Finally, on her lips I used Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour ($32) in Chalys."
January Jones' makeup artist Rachel Goodwin says:"January's look was all about strength—there was nothing demure about it! I wanted to go for a super strong brow, and a high gloss red lip. 90s supermodel meets old Hollywood glamour!"
"The makeup was simple with two strong elements. I prepped her skin with Chanel Sublimage Concentrate. I then sculpted her cheeks with Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base ($48). On her lids, I used a wash of champagne colored shadow, CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50) in Liberty. I created a strong, bold defined brow with the Chanel Perfect Brows palette ($65), and applied two coats of Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara ($30) in Noir. Finally, I knew I wanted to go for a glossy red lip as opposed to a matte red, to keep the look fresh and not too retro. I used an amazing red gloss, Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Excess, to complete January’s strong red carpet look."
