I recently had the chance to attend a private screening and soirée for Anne Hathaway's latest picture, Rachel Getting Married. The cast and crew were all present to celebrate the occasion, as were members of the Lancôme family (which included the likes of Daria Werbowy, former Harper's Bazaar Beauty Director/Author/VP of Public Relations Kerry Diamond, and Marc Benhamou, the VP of Creative for L'Oréal's Luxury Products Division... To name a few). It was a beauty reporter's dream.
As you'd expect (and despite the stormy weather), every actress and socialite arrived to the event perfectly polished and ready for a photo op. So what I found to be truly inspiring, was how lovely the ladies of Lancôme looked at the end of (what appeared to be) a crazy busy day. Impeccably dressed in up & coming designers like Thakoon and Peter Som, each complimented their look with a luminous complexion and just the right amount of color on their eyes, cheeks, and lips. Of course, Anne was noticeably radiant as well and looked Magnifique in a classic combination of smoky eyes and pale pink lips*.
Ms.Hathaway also lit up the screen as 'the other sister' in the film, which was quite the departure from her lighter, more comedic roles. Bravo to her for taking a risk, and for all she's (so elegantly) endured these past few months.
The base- Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #2 was used, along with Laura Mercier Secret Concealer in #2. And then, to give Anne's complexion a rosy glow, Giorgio Armani Sheer Cream Blush in #2 was applied to the apples of her cheeks. To finish the look, a cream highlighter was used on the brow bone and cheek bone areas.
On the eyes- Lancôme Modele Sourcils Brow Groomer in Natural was used to define Anne's eyebrows. Next, Lancôme Artliner in Black was smudged inside and around the eye close to her lashes, and then a bronze eyeshadow was blended into the crease with a soft brush, individual lashes were placed throughout her lash line (with a focus on the outer corners of the eye), and the eyes were finished a quick curl and Lancôme Hypnose Mascara in Black (applied to both the upper and lower lashes).
On the lips- Lancôme Color Design Lipstick in Pale Lip.
