Get Elizabeth Olsen’s Critic’s Choice Look. Beauty Breakdown from Chanel Cosmetics
Celebrity Makeup Artist Gita Bass created Elizabeth Olsen’s gorgeous look for the 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards using CHANEL Makeup.
“We were inspired by Elizabeth’s dress, which was a bright color, so we decided to create a really natural look. I gave her a fresh healthy glow and kept her looking effortless and young,” said Gita
After first priming the face with Le Blanc de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base, Gita applied CHANEL Vitalumiere Moisture Rich Radiance Fluid Makeup SPF 15 in Ivoire to create flawless, even skin tone. She then placed Soleil Tan de Chanel Moisturizing Bronzing Powder under the cheekbones and CHANEL Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Sienna on the apples of her cheeks for a fresh pop of color. Gita then highlighted her cheek and brow bones using CHANEL Limited Edition Natural Finished Pressed Powder in Jasmin.
To create the natural eye look, Gita blended the lightest two shades from CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Demure on the lid up to the crease and under the bottom lash line.
“Using a wet pointed brush, I traced the dark brown shade between her upper lashes to create definition,” descirbed Gita.
She then curled Elizabeth’s lashes with what she called “the amazing CHANEL Precision Eyelash Curler” and applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir. To finish the look, Gita beautified the lips with CHANEL Glossimer in Petillant.
