Rosamund Pikes gorgeous makeup look was created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Mélanie Inglessis for CHANEL.
When we decide on a red carpet look, it always starts with the dress. With Rosamund’s dress, there was a raw element, but with a rock-and-roll twist. So there’s a bit of an edge, and I really wanted to play that up.
I wanted to accentuate Rosamund’s fair, English-rose complexion. I used CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 for light, luminous coverage—it has a nice dewy finish and goes on incredibly evenly. I applied it with a Beauty Blender soaked in rose water for a flawless, soothing application. I pressed foundation all over the face, starting from the middle and working outward. Once the complexion was flawless, I used CHANEL Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base, one of my favorite products ever. I warmed up the skin all over, then concentrated on the cheekbones to contour naturally, as well as the forehead and nose for a healthy, sun-kissed glow. Next, I applied pink blush onto the apples of the cheeks with the same brush that I had used to apply the CHANEL Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base. By using the same brush, I could achieve a seamless blend on the skin.
When I saw Rosamund’s dress—classic with ethereal, Greek-goddess elements—I thought I’d use a soft, smoky-grey for her eye look. (The cream color of the dress allowed me to play with color.) I wanted the makeup to be a little rock-and-roll to accentuate her gorgeous, green-blue eyes. I began the eye look with the brows, as they frame the face. To create Rosamund’s soft, smoky look I began with a taupe-grey liner, Make Up For Ever Artist Liner in I16, applying it along the top and bottom lashes in a thick line. I then blended CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Mirage over the line and feathered it up to the crease. On the bottom outer corner of the eye, I blended it using a brush in a back-and-forth motion. I added CHANEL Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Infini into the outer corner of the crease to add depth. Finally, I curled the lashes and applied mascara on her top and bottom lashes.
With the smoky eye, I wanted to use a really beautiful nude color, but with life, not too matte. I finished the look with CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Ingénue, which is a little lighter than Rosamund’s natural lip color.
