Get Keira's Chanel make-up look…

27 January 2009


We've just seen Keira Knightley strutting her stuff on the Chanel Couture front row at her first ever fashion show and now we've got the scoop on her perfect porcelain doll-like beauty look – from Keira's own make-up artist!

'Keira is such a classic beauty and was wearing a very chic, simple, black, high-neck Chanel top and a classic tweed skirt,' says A-list make-up guru, Kay Montano. 'I decided her make-up look should be very ingénue in contrast to her classic clothes. Keira's cool, Jane Birkin-esque fringe also frames her beautiful eyes so I decided to keep them the focus.'

Kay kept Keira's skin very translucent with Chanel's sheer foundation Vitalumiere in Clair followed by a very light dusting of Poudre Universelle Compacte in Beige to give her skin a soft matte texture. She then created a chocolate, plum eye courtesy of Les 4 Ombres in Mystic Eyes over a liberal smudging of Chanel's eye pencil in brown. The eyes were completed with Chanel liquid liner next to the top lashes, edging to a 'rock' version of the classic tick plus lashings of Exceptionnel black mascara. Fandango blush was brushed on the cheeks to give a natural flush. Lips were given a modern retro look with a light slick of Levres Signées Chanel satin lip cream palette. So there you have it. Keira's couture beauty look sorted!
