What They Wore: Keira Knightley at the premier of Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

Keira Knightley, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, LA premiereWe absolutely must discuss Keira Knightley’s look at the Los Angeles Film Festival, for two and a half reasons: (1) I. Love. Her. Hair. (2) The look is so classically Chanel — sophisticated, subtle. More about a beautiful girl than her beautiful makeup. (½) She’s wearing “normal” heels! I didn’t think they existed in Hollywood!

Makeup artist Kate Lee was the genius behind Keira’s look.

SKINCARE
Kate started with Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum and UV Essentiel SPF 50 (yay for sunscreen!). Skincare acts as a primer; it helps foundation go on more smoothly.

FOUNDATION
Kate used a tiny amount of the new Vitalumiere Aqua compact (still trying to track down the shade), to even out and perfect Keira’s basically perfect skin. The foundation also lends the skin a slight, even, dewy quality (a subtle glow looks youthful).

Kate applied Make Up For Ever Uplight Illumintor (still trying to track down the shade) on cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, inner corners of the eyes, and the cupid’s bow of the lips.

BLUSH
Kate applied By Terry Rose de Rose liquid blush (shade information to come), with Chanel Tumulte Joues Contraste on the apples of the cheek.

EYES
Keira is wearing a peach-pink eyeshadow on the outer third of her lid (below the crease), with peach-pink Illusion d’Ombre in Abstraction (a fall 2012 shade) on the center of the lid. She also has on Chanel Inimitable mascara, plus strip and individual lashes (which just goes to show, for red carpet photography, you have to wear falsies, even to look like you’re not wearing falsies).

LIPS
Lips are really natural: a mix of Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Liberte and Rouge Coco Baume.

And Keira’s red floral metal headband is actually from the Chanel 2012-13 Cruise collection.

    I cannot stop gawking at how gorgeous her makeup is. I have to try peach in the outer crease.

  • Amy says:

    Keira Knightley has definitely perfected and claimed the natural look! I love knowing what types of makeup she used. I didn’t realize that skincare,especially sunscreen which I’ve been obsessing over lately, was such a good primer. Very interesting and informative post! Thanks!

    Guh. Keira Knightley just looks perfect. I love her skin.

    (also, everytime I see her in movies I just gawk at her makeup and try to figure out how to emulate it. I love how we agree on this point :)

  • Marie says:

    She looks amazing! The make-up artist did a fantastic job!

  • Pam says:

    Wow! Her hairdo (do people still say that?) is one of the most beautiful ever! Makeup & dress – stunning!

    I do think a bit of a reddish berry stain patted on the lips underneath would look better than the totally pale lip look.

  • Sondra C says:

    I MUST find that peachy/pink eyeshadow. I really want to try that look. Hopefully green eyes can pull it off, since mine aren’t brown.

    Any ideas on what color she’s wearing? Probly Chanel right?
