Beauty Breakdown – Keira Knightley by Kay Montano

Keira Knightley - Makeup by Kay MontanoThe lovely Kay Montano was on a press junket for Keira Knightley last week, and this is the look she created for her. Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of the makeup that she did as it was meeting the press and not an actual photo shoot, but the photo I have included was makeup Kay did for Keira for a Chanel event in Paris earlier this year. Enjoy!

Base – Chanel Vitalumiere in Cendre 30  (Keira has a tan at the moment, so this is darker than she would normally use on her)

Powder – Chanel Translucent Loose Powder in 20 brushed onto T-zone

  • Chanel Exceptionnel mascara in black
