“In brief, I would describe Keira's look as a soft, muted, pretty and  
ethereal version of late 18th century make-up based on paintings by  
Joshua Reynolds and Mary Cosway - prolific painters of the period.  
It's about finding a 'middle ground' on what would otherwise be a  
garish make-up period,” said make-up designer Daniel Phillips.




*As of Oct. 15, 2008, Keira Knightley is a spokesmodel for Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. Makeup411.com chose to run this breakdown because it does not feature only Chanel products.
Skincare
Ice cold face cloth with rose water and lavender, used to waken the skin in the early morning, leaving the skin tingling! Crème de la Mer The Moisturizing Gel Cream; Crème de la Mer The Lip Balm to prime the lips
Foundation
Mix of Chanel Lift Lumière Foundation in colors Clair (20) and Beige (40), from Autumn 2008 range
Concealer
Maquillage palette in Ivory and Ochre cream base mixed with Maquillage Pre-Base Moisturizer. This helps keep the concealer silky.
Powder
Chanel Poudre Universe Libre in Clair and Chanel Soft Pressed Powder in Almond
Blush
Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Petale.
Eye Shadow
Chanel Irréelle Duo in Cristal-Dusk; dusted over whole area with Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Petale to soften and mute the colors and give youthful glow.
Brows
Color toned to link in with wig color. Skin Illustrator Complexion Palette in ochre yellow and Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Malted, a mocha beige color
Mascara
Exceptionnel de Chanel Intense Volume and Curl Mascara in Smoky Noir 10
False Lashes
Individual eye lashes were added to outer corners to lift eyes.
Lips
Lucas’ Papaw Ointment mixed with Chanel Rouge Hydrabase Creme Lipstick in Fantastic Plum. This color was dabbed on with finger tip to keep edges soft and create a stain effect.
Highlights / Countour
Neck and decollete were air brushed using Kett Hydro Foundation in ivory, and collarbone and upper chest/ breast line was shimmered with Chanel Facettes D’Or Highlighter in Gold Fever. This is subtle enough to give a silky effect without the sparkle on camera!
