There are two things that the Stella McCartney girl does well: beautiful, radiant skin and, more recently, look-at-me eyes. Fresh from wowing the Fash Pack in Paris with electric blue lashes at the A/W 2012 show, for Spring 2013, there's a more Kate Middleton approach to her look thanks to statement under-eye liner. Makeup artist Jeanine Lobell used Sunday Riley Gel Pencil in Pitch Black to create the look but you can try your hand at it with Mirenesse Tight Liner Hydra Gel Eye Liner ($29.95). Team with relaxed, low-fi strands and a pretty pale pink polish.
Chanel makeup artist Jeanine Lobell created Michelle Williams' gorgeous makeup look to complement her equally stunning couture gown, which Jeanine said "represented Michelle’s personality — ethereal and sparkling." Here's the lowdown on how she created Michelle's winning look . . .
SKIN: Jeanine says that "Michelle’s skin is so fresh and beautiful," so it doesn't really require much work. She applied Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup in B10, which is fresh and natural-looking. That was then set with Chanel Natural Finished Press Pressed Powder in Translucent 1 ($88).
EYES: Jeanine went for a light, ethereal smoky look mixing the shades in the Chanel Smoky Eyes Quadra Eyeshadow ($98). The silvery shade was used as a base, and then the pewter shade was taken from the lash line up into the crease to create depth. The same shade was then smudged under the lower lash line. Instead of liner, Jeanine blended the black and pewter shades together to define the eyes. Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir ($52) was used on the top and bottom lashes.
According to makeup artist Jeanine Lobell, who created Michelle Williams' makeup palette for the 2011 Golden Globe Awards, the inspiration behind the look was the classic beauty of Jean Seberg and Mia Farrow. "A fresh coral lip kept the look modern and new," Lobell said. For that peachy glow, Jeanine used Chanel Powder Blush in Espiègle ($71), a shimmery pink-coral, along with Chanel's Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Chalys ($50) to create the perfect look. J'adore.

Michelle Williams looked cute-as-a-button at this week's New York premiere of Blue Valentine. She accentuated her platinum blonde pixie with a palette of creamy pink shades. And makeup artist Jeanine Lobell created Michelle's fresh and flirty look using products from Chanel's Spring 2011 collection, launching in Feb.
Eyes: Start by lining the eyes with a soft brown liner. Jeanine then used the Ombres Perlées Limited Edition palette ($100)—applying the pale ivory colour from Michelle's lash line to brow. Then, she used the pink shade on the crease and smudged the gorgeous grey on the lid and lash line. Tip: apply a little grey to the lower lash line to help frame the eyes and finish with black mascara; Lobell used Kevyn Aucoin Mascara ($52) on Michelle.
Cheeks and Lips: Lobell used a soft pink on Michelle's cheeks — we love Chanel's new Joues Contraste Espiègle ($71), which is part of the Spring collection. And Rouge Coco Jersey Rose ($50) brought it all together. We'll definitely be wearing this exact look come February. LOVE.
