At this years 2011 Emmy Awards, the beautiful Gwyneth Paltrow wore makeup by CHANEL created by celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee.

Inspiration: "The dress inspired the look. It was very fashion forward, with a nod to the 30s. I wanted to keep her looking youthful and radiant, with an edge."


How-To:

Kate prepped Gwyneth's skin with CHANEL Beauté Initiale Eye Gel and Le Blanc de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base, followed by CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Makeup SPF 10 and Kanebo Sensai Brush Concealer.  Focusing on the eyes, she lined the eyes with CHANEL Le Crayon Kohl Intense Eye Pencil in Noir.  She curled the lashes and covered the entire lid with CHANEL Illusion d'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Emerveille, letting a little go into the inner corners of the lower lid.  Then, she used CHANEL Illusion d'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme to add a bright shimmering highlight to the center of the lid.  She added a soft line of black Shiseido Liquid Eyeliner at the base of the lashes to make them appear fuller, and finished the eyes with a generous amount of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir on the top and bottom lashes.  The brows were perfected with CHANEL Crayon Sourcils Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Blond Clair and Anastasia Brow Gel.  Kate highlighted the cheekbones with By Terry Rose de Rose Sheer  Liquid Blush in Coral Rose and accented the apples with Kevin Aucoin The Creamy Moist Glow Blush in Euphoria.  To finish the look, Gwyneth's lips were defined with Kevin Aucoin The Flesh Tone Lip Pencil in Medium and Kiehl's Lip Balm.

Get the Look: Kate Winslet at the 2011 Emmy Awards.

Lancôme Ambassadress Kate Winslet’s looked beautiful at last nights Emmy Awards. The look was created by Jillian Dempsey, Avon’s Global Creative Color Director, using products from Lancôme and Avon.

“Kate’s makeup was fresh and luminous,” explained Jillian. “This look gave us a chance to show off her beautiful complexion.”

To show off her gorgeous skin, we kept her face basic and highlighted her cheeks with a soft blush. We accentuated her eyes with a warm taupe eye shadow and lots of lush black mascara. Kate wanted a semi-matte lip so we blended lip liner and lipstick to ground the color and finished off her naturally pretty look with just a hint of clear gloss.

EYES:
·                           Lancôme Color Design Eye Shadow in Laced Up (base) and Guest List (contour)
·                           Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Mascara in Excessive Black
·                           Lancôme Le Crayon Poudre in Brunet
 
FACE:
·                           Avon MagiX Essential Face Mattifier
