A rose is a rose is a rose--unless you're Rose Byrne and look amazing on the Emmy Awards red carpet! We chatted with makeup artist Kate Lee about how she achieved Byrne's beautiful maquillage.
INSPIRATION: Rose wore a custom gown that was the most amazing blush shade, so I wanted to make sure that she didn’t “disappear” with a look that was too natural.
STEP ONE: I prepped Rose’s skin by misting her with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Essence Mist and then following quickly with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Gel Yeux. Next, I used a small amount of CHANEL Le Lift Creme Fine to give a beautiful, velvety, firm texture to her complexion.
STEP TWO: Rose is blessed with beautiful, even-toned skin, so I just used CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour SPF 15 No. 30 to diffuse the light and give a velvet matte finish. I applied it with a large brush then used a damp beauty blender sponge to melt it into the skin for perfect coverage.
STEP THREE: I decided on a late 70’s Helmut Newton-esque look. I started by defining the socket with the darkest color in the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Eclosion. I then blended the peach above the socket to melt the socket away. The lash line was defined by wetting the matte brown shadow and blending out. I finished the eye by adding a coat of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir, then feathered in a few extra lashes from both strip and individual Ardell.
STEP FOUR: I used Le Blush Creme de Chanel in Presage to add an apricot hue to Rose’s apples; it’s a great neutral and pairs very well with a warm brown eye shadow.
STEP FIVE: The lip was a beautiful deep rose with a violety hue: CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Byzantin. The lip balanced out the eye and completed the look.
