Natalie Portman must be makeup artist Jeanine Lobell’s dream client. Not only was Lobell inspired by that beyond gorgeous orchid-colored Rodarte dress, but despite her sophistication, Nat is young enough to pull off what Lobell called, “cool punk rock sexy fairy makeup.” Say what?
We had to call Jeanine, and ask exactly what she used to get it. The good news? It’s easy enough to re-create at home. The bad news? Portman’s cheekbones are not included.
Lobell, the founder of Stila, confessed that it was all about the Chanel last night. She used the Chanel Silky Eye Shadow Duo in Orient Express, $40, to achieve a frosty-pastel play on smoky. First, pale pink shadow, with dark purple smudged around the lids and lower lash line. She then lined a bit of Intense Eye Pencil in Noir, $27, inside the eye, and black Inimitable Mascara, $30, for red carpet-worthy lashes. An application of Perfect Brows in Brun, $65, made Portman’s brows strong but soft. To play on the tones of the dress, Lobell swept Powder Blush in Narcisse, $42, a bright pink, high on her cheekbones, and dabbed pale lavender Glossimer in Galactic, $27, on her lips. Finally, for a sexy, bronze sheen, she rubbed Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed, $42, on Portman’s arms, shoulders, and chest.
See? Told ya sexy rock and roll fairy makeup was a cinch.
