Makeup Artist Kate Lee tended to the beautiful face of Rose Byrne for the 2010 Emmy Awards.
Rose wore a cream dress with a gold detail. Her hair was softly textured and swept into a soft high chignon by Harry Josh. I wanted to move away from anything too tan or Grecian looking, and keep things young and fresh. For this reason, I used mainly creme and gel formulas.
First I smoothed the skin with CHANEL Sublimage Concentrate, and then applied a layer of oil free primer. I started by applying a layer of eye shadow base, then worked directly over the top with CHANEL Liquid Eyeshadow in Splash, a gentle mauve pewter shade, new for Holiday. I added a liner under the lash line to add depth, then put a line of the liquid shadow over the top and blended it out slightly. Rose’s base was CHANEL Vitalumiere Fluid Makeup, blended very gently away to almost nothing. I only used powder on the nose chin and forehead, leaving the rest of the skin dewy. Lashes were given a generous coat of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir.
I used a tan matte blush to sculpt Rose's cheek bones, then on the tip of the cheek bones and just under the brow I added a gentle dab of Nars Luxor, which is a transparent creme stick which shines pink in the light. On the top crest of the lip I used a lip pencil in a rose gold tone, to add a highlight to the cupids bow, and then I added a touch of CHANEL Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Insouciance... Probably the best nude gloss ever!
