New Beauty Breakdown: Rachel Weisz on the cover of the Observer

Rachel Weisz The Observer - makeup by Kay Montano

Makeup by Kay Montano

This was a shoot that originally ran in Spanish Vanity Fair, and it popped up again on the cover of last weekend’s Observer magazine in London (together with an interview with Rachel about being the new Mrs Bond. I can’t imagine that it’s that difficult, can you?)

I thought Rachel looked incredible in these pictures so I asked Kay for a breakdown. Here’s what she used:


  • MyFace MyMix foundation in F2


  • Jurlique Rose Powder on the T-zone


  • Chanel Rose Temptation blush


  • MAC Satin Taupe eyeshadow
  • Bobbi Brown Black Gel Eyeliner
  • Chanel Inimitable Obscure mascara in Noir


  • MAC Hue lipstick
