Red Carpet Makeup: Anne Hathaway at the “Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion” Costume Institute Gala 2009

Celebrity makeup artist Leslie Lopez gave Lancôme ambassador Anne Hathaway an ultra-glamorous, ultra-dramatic look with smoky eyes as the focal point.

Leslie swept Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Statuesque over the entire eyelid, dabbed Color Design Eyeshadow in Daylight on the brow bone and finished with several coats of Lancôme L’Extreme Mascara in Black.

Anne’s sheer, neutral colored lipstick–Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick in Couture Suede—was the perfect finishing touch.

  1. I love Anne Hathaway but I found the look a little bit “too old” for her(strong brow, big hair, big mouth, big eyes big earrings…) Her usually perfect smile looks a tad bit awkward as well…

  2. I agree with Citrine….the hair, to me, looks horrendous and the makeup is a bit aging.
    She looks so old in the pic, I hardly recognized her! I think her previous looks are more becoming of her than this one.

  3. LOVE the eyes, but that bouffant hair makes her look like an aging socialite. I love Anne but i think she needs to have her hair styled more age- appropriately.

  4. I agree with the previous posts. I think her makeup looks quite aging on her – maybe it’s because her skin seems dehydrated and her blush colour.

  5. :( I don’t really adore the hair/eye makeup combo. I think they should have stuck with one or the other.

    I agree also she seems a bit old…I really feel it’s the eye makeup :( maybe if they took the blush away and left her lips a nice nude… and minus the hair… bahh!

    But who am I to critique?
