Alexa Chung, Harper's Bazaar Australia

New Beauty Breakdown: Alexa Chung for Harper’s Bazaar Australia

Makeup by Florrie White

Alexa Chung is a bit of an MM fave as she’s lovely, cool, has the wardrobe that everybody wants and she’s rather gorgeous as well. Here’s a beautiful shoot she did in Paris recently as a Chanel Cruise exclusive for the Australian edition of Harper’s Bazaar, shot by Angelo Pennetta. Known for her lovely cat eyes and signature flicked eyeliner it was a bit of an exciting day since she agreed to wear a bright lip. I think she looks phenomenal!

I have a breakdown from her regular makeup artist, the wonderful London-based Florrie White who reveals what she used on an impeccable summer day on the lovely Alexa:

Skincare

  • Decleor Sun Expert – it was so hot in the magnificent Parisian garden. Alexa did not complain while I hid in the shade guzzling cold water!

Foundation

  • None – she has perfect skin and I love her freckles.

Concealer

  • Chanel Long Lasting Concealer only under her eyes.

 Powder

  • Due to the heat and the clean skin I just used Givenchy’s Mister Matte to control any shine.

Blush

  • MAC Cream Blush in Cheery and Cherche

Eyes

  • MAC Eye Pencil in Smolder
  • Lancome Hypnose Mascara
  • Chanel Ilusion d’Ombre Emerveille, Epatant, Illusoire, Mirifique used individually and/or mixed together, blended and changed around throughout the shoot.

Lips

  • MAC Pro Lip Mix in Orange

Nails

  • Dior Vernis Underground 824

Here’s a gorgeous behind-the-scenes video showing Florrie at work:
