Get the Look: Christina Hendricks at the 2011 MET Ball.

Celebrity Makeup Artis Vanessa Scali made up the gorgeous makeup look for Christina Hendricks for the 2011 MET Gala, held last night in New York City.

Inspiration:
“Christina’s makeup was directly inspired by her strapless dress.  The dress had an earthy, mermaid feel.  You can picture her appearing from out of the mist in Ireland just in time for the Ball.  This look is a contrast of simplicity and sophistication:  nude skin, ruddy-rosy cheeks and flush lips paired with intense, sultry copper eyes.”

How-To:
“First, I prepared her skin by using CHANEL Sublimage La Crème.  This cream is rich, luxurious and penetrating.  Then I applied CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Pastel.  This formula is so exciting!  From the moment I tried it, it has been a staple in my bag.  It’s effortless to apply and light as air -- perfect for making the skin look nude, but flawless.  CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Petale was applied to the apples of the cheeks blending outward.

For definition and intensity, I lined her eyes with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir at the base of the lashes and on the inside rim of the eye (one of my favorite ways to secretly make lashes look thicker and define the eyes is to line the inside rim, on the waterline).  Then using CHANEL Makeup Shadow/ Liner Brush #4, I smudged the line for a softer effect.  Using the rich copper shade from the CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow in Spices, I applied color from the lash line to just above the crease and swept past the natural outer corner to exaggerate and elongate the eye.  This color continues under the bottom lashes, blended well.  Then to highlight the brow bone, I used a touch of CHANEL Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Delta.  I finished the eye by framing it with lush, dramatic lashes – CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir.  You can never have too many lashes and this mascara really delivers.

For lips I wanted a flush, clean look so I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Sari D’Eau.  And the last touch was a dusting of CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Clair – Translucent 1 on her T-zone.”

Get the Look: Jessica Chastain at the 2011 MET Ball.

Jessica Chastain attended the the Met Ball in New York City last night. She had her makeup look done by Celebrity Makeup Artist Jake Bailey.

Jessica wore a tight sexy black dress by Pucci, which I couldn't envision with anything else but the always-chic smoky eye and nude lip.

I started with a tiny bit of moisturizer called "skin food" by Weleda. I then buffed a light coat of COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Silk Foundation all over her face to add a bit of perfecting polish to Jessica's already beautiful skin. 

I then lined the entire inner rim of her eyes with COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast in Black Fire and worked it into the top and bottom lash lines for extra definition. This liner has a super soft blendable texture, which I smudged upward, outward and downward using a soft cone tipped eyeshadow brush to achieve the smoky effect. I then set the smoky liner with a little bit of Guerlains's les violettes loose powder. I applied individual lashes and coated them with COVERGIRL LashBlast Fusion Mascara...a rich black formula that added tons of volume as well as length. I only needed one coat.

I then warmed up her complexion by applying a cream bronzer to the apples of her cheeks and hairline.

I gave her a light dusting of the same Guerlain powder and accentuated her cheekbones using a highlighter from Kevyn Aucoin.

I finished the look with a tawny coral nude lip color, COVERGIRL LipPerfection lipcolor in Delish.
