Anne Hathaway brought high-impact drama to the Les Misérables Premiere with her sleek hair and statement smile. “We wanted Anne to look slick and chic in her home town of NYC,” explains Chanel celebrity makeup artist Katie Lee. Read on for her complete beauty breakdown.

“I started out by perfecting the skin with Chanel Perfection Lumiére Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Makeup SPF 10. I wanted the complexion to be truly flawless—I love the velvety finish. Cheeks were given a slight flush with Laura Mercier Créme Blush in Praline. On the lids, I used a fine veil of Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme to add a shimmery, wet-looking effect when she blinked. I curled her lashes, applied a coat of Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir, and then added a mixture of strip and individual lashes to add shape and volume to the lashes.

For her brows, I spent a lot of time grooming and elongating her brows. I used Anastasia’s brow powder and clear brow gel to set them in place. On the lips, I used a mixture of three lip colors. I started out with Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Rouge Noir. I then added Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Somptueuse and a touch of Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Palpitante.”
