Makeup Artist Jeanine Lobell was responsible for Penelope Cruz’s soft, smoked out eyes.
“Penelope is just such a classic beauty and so sexy. I just wanted to play up her eyes as the focus, working with the nude of the dress. It was important to work in neutral tones playing off the gown and using darkness rather than colour for intensity.”
Jeanine used a tinted moisturizer for her foundation, and set it with CHANEL POUDRE CRISTALLINE Ultra-Fine Translucent Powder for a bright soft finish. On her eyes, she went for a classic smoky look, using the CHANEL SILKY EYESHADOW DUO in BRUN-EXPRESS. She used the matte brown and smoked out the lid, blended into the crease, and then created a smoky line under the eye. Jeanine rimmed the lash line and in the inner lid with CHANEL INTENSE EYE PENCIL in NOIR. Adding the black on the top lashes smudgy gave her a sexy blended eye. She then used CHANEL INIMITABLE MASCARA in NOIR-BLACK on the lashes on top. For a soft, romantic look, Jeanine used CHANEL POWDER BLUSH in ROSE PETALE on the cheeks. Penelope’s lips were her own nude lip liner with a clear gloss, to keep the focus on the eyes.
