Natalie Portman and Michelle Williams swear by makeup artist and Stila founder Jeanine Lobell’s steady hand for their red-carpet cameos. But since it was announced last year that Lobell was to become the chief creative director of Kevyn Aucoin Beauty, we’ve seen little of the famed face painter’s work in her new role. Enter Vogue Japan, which got Lobell to showcase a whole lot of it for a July beauty supplement starring a fresh-faced Freja Beha Erichsen and standouts from the Kevyn Aucoin line. True to her signature style, Lobell kept her focus mostly on the skin, buffing a totally flawless bronzed finish onto Erichsen’s complexion and doing little else, save for some smudged black mascara and a paled-out pout. Turns out you don’t need fluorescent lips and tips to do summer beauty right. We’re psyched to see what kind of compacts and skin finishers Lobell dreams up for her full-scale KAB debut—whenever that may be.
The Face Painter: Celebrity makeup artist Jeanine Lobell for Chanel Beauty.
The Face: Lobell turned to Kevyn Aucoin’s The Sensual Skin Enhancer to spot-treat and provide a light veil of velvety coverage before dusting the apples of Williams’ cheeks with Chanel Powder Blush in Rose Petale, a soft pink.
The Eyes: Using Ombres Perlees de Chanel, a six-shadow palette due out in January, Lobell swept the pale ivory shade across Williams’ lids from the lash line all the way up to the brow bone, and followed with a topping of the pink color over the crease to “flatten the eye.” Lobell then smudged the gray pigment into both the upper and lower lash lines to add depth to lashes before curling them and coating them with Kevyn Aucoin Curling Mascara in Rich Pitch Black. To frame the face, Lobell penciled in Williams’ arches with Chanel’s Precision Brow Definer in Soft Brown.
The Lip: Opting for a subdued pout, Lobell painted Williams’ lips a healthy shade of pink, courtesy of Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Jersey Rose.
The Nail: Seeing as how no look is complete without a statement manicure these days, Lobell introduced Williams to Chanel’s Pearl Drop, the opalescent ivory polish featured on toes at the house’s Spring show, which hits counters next month.
The Result: One part icon, one part ingenue—i.e., the perfect red-carpet combination for the star of an NC-17 rated film.
We’ve been looking forward to Natalie Portman’s Black Swan press junket for months. Let us be the first to say that the star’s red-carpet cameo at the New York premiere last night did not disappoint. Decked in a floor-length, off-the-shoulder Dior gown, Portman modeled glamorous filled-in brows and a thin black cat-eye, courtesy of her preferred face painter, Jeanine Lobell. That stunning, sanguine lip was the happy result of a layering effort that included Dior’s new Rouge Dior in Fantastic Plum and Zinnia Red. As for her hair, stylist John D. withstood the urge to go with a ballerina’s updo and instead chose long, loose waves with some “oomph” at the root. Portman’s strands were prepped with Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream for a slight hold and a boost of hydration before John D. used his one-inch curling iron from the mid-lengths to the tips of her locks. Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray finished the style—and kept Portman’s coif intact despite a sprinkling of evening rain. Thoughts on the look?
The Makeup Artist: Jeanine Lobell for Chanel Beauty.
The Face: Lobell used a minimal base, choosing to focus her energies on Cornish’s cheeks. A concentrated dose of Chanel Rose Dust Powder Blush really showcases the way Cornish’s apples light up when she smiles.
The Eyes: To bring out her green peepers, Lobell went with a purple liner, Chanel’s Eye Definer pen in Violet Smoke, brushing a few coats of its Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Magic Night—a deep brownish plum—across her lids. Multiple slashings of Chanel’s Inimitable Mascara in Noir, on both the upper and lower lash line, helped make Cornish’s eyes “pop.”
The Lip: Peter Philips’ much-discussed new Rouge Coco Lipstick line made yet another red-carpet showing here, as Lobell reached for its Organdi Rose shade, a shimmering pink that added a little oomph to Cornish’s natural lip color.
The Result: Selma Blair, Kristen Bell, and Zoë Kravitz were also there, but all eyes were on Cornish. With rumors swirling that she has moved on from Ryan Phillippe to Josh Hartnett, inquiring minds want to know, well, everything.
Known mostly for its expensive jeans (and a bit of legal trouble with Victoria Beckham over profits from said jeans), Rock & Republic is now focusing its energies on moving beyond mere denim, evolving into a full-force lifestyle brand. Already hawking accessories, eyewear, bags, and shoes—all of which will be on view at its Spring/Summer 2009 collection show today—the company will officially add cosmetics to its list of offerings on September 15. The new range includes pressed powders and high-pigmented eye shadows as well as a face highlighter and tinted primers, created with the signature Rock & Republic “edgy/luxury” vibe in mind. While the products won’t be available for purchase until next week, celebrity makeup artist Jeanine Lobell will be using the new line to craft all of the looks at R&R’s runway presentation, giving them a proper test run before they make their way into your makeup bag.
