We adore Anne Hathaway’s dramatic makeup as seen on the red carpet for the New York premiere of Les Misérables. Don’t you think this would make a gorgeous look for holiday parties?

The inspiration:

“We wanted Anne to look slick and chic in her hometown of NYC,” says her makeup artist Kate Lee.


Lee applied Chanel Perfection Lumiére Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Makeup SPF 10 all over her face for a velvety finish. She then added a soft flush with Laura Mercier Cream Blush in Praline.


Lee applied a coat of Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme “to add a shimmery, wet-looking effect when (Anne) blinked.” After that, she coated lashes with Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir. “I then added a mixture of strip and individual lashes to add shape and volume to the lashes,” says Lee.


“I spent a lot of time grooming and elongating Annie’s brows,” Lee says. “I used Anastasia’s brow powder and clear brow gel to set them in place.”


To create that deep red lip, Lee actually used a mixture of three colors. She started with Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Rouge Noir, then added Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Somptueuse and a dab of Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Palpitante.
