Nominated for a Best Actress in a Drama Series Emmy, Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery (who plays Lady Mary Crawley) called upon CHANEL celebrity makeup artist Jordan Bree Long to create her simple dewy complexion and a serious statement lip to go with her Louis Vuitton gown. “For Michelle's eyes we wanted to keep it light and soft with just a hint of sparkle with fluttery lashes,” Long told InStyle.com exclusively. She used Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Abstraction, a chic rose gold all over her lid (available for $36 on chanel.com in November). Next, Long contoured using the taupe-gray shadow and then added a pop of metallic at the center of her lid. For her bold brick red lip, Long first lined Dockery's lips with pencil, then layered Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Somptueuse ($32.50 at chanel.com). “We wanted to do a deeper lip but nothing too dark and vampy,” Long said. “This color perfectly complements her hair and also looks fantastic with Michelle’s fair flawless skin.” We couldn't agree more.
