Chanel Make-up Artist Kate Lee on Anne Hathaway’s Met Gala Look
Interview with Chanel Make-up Artist Kate Lee
Whom did you work with for the Met Gala?
What was your inspiration for the look?
Catholic art often depicts angels shedding tears, and I wanted to do the most beautiful version of that. She looks like a goddess: lit from within with a single, beautiful tear.
What did you do to prep her skin?
I always use at least three CHANEL Hydra Beauty products to prep the complexion. I started by applying CHANEL Hydra Beauty Micro Liquid Essence and CHANEL Hydra Beauty Micro Crème Fortifying Replenishing Hydration, and then spritzed my beauty blender with CHANEL Essence Mist Hydration Protection Radiance Energizing Mist. The key to making her look ethereal was keeping the skin dangerously bare, and CHANEL Vitaumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup in 20 Beige is perfect for this. I used CHANEL Poudre Lumière Highlighting Powder in Ivory Gold on the crest of the lip, the jawline and under the eyes, and added a swipe of CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Multi-Colour Powder in Light very high on the cheekbone to add luminosity.
What did you use on her eyes and brows?
I used CHANEL Les Beige Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette in Deep on the lid and groomed the brows with CHANEL Stylo Sourcils Waterproof Defining Longwear Eyebrow Pencil in Brun Cendre and CHANEL Le Gel Sourcils Longwear Eyebrow Gel in Transparent. I curled the lashes and added one coat of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir.
Tell us about her lips…
I used the new CHANEL Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur Jumbo Longwear Lip Crayon in Au Natural.
Any other tips you would like to share?
The key to this look is really considering your choices in foundation; use it only where you need it, exfoliate beforehand, and stay super hydrated to keep the focus on bright, luminescent skin.
