Red Carpet Beauty: Jennifer Aniston at the Oscars 2009

by Makeup Artist Angela Levin for CHANEL

Beauty Inspiration:

“When I spoke to Jen before the Oscars, we decided we wanted to create a look that exuded modern glamour. She had just returned from vacation, and she had that relaxed, glowing feeling, which we wanted to display on the red carpet. She is the quintessential California glamour girl, and she was radiant as always on Oscar night.” Angela tells us.

Beauty Tip:

Angela prepped Jennifer’s skin with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Moisture Boost Cream. She then used a foundation brush to apply CHANEL Lift Lumiere Firming and Smoothing Fluid Makeup in Beige all over the face. Under Jennifer’s eyes, Angela applied CHANEL Lift Lumiere Smooth and Rejuvinating Eye Contour in Beige Lumiere.

Instead of a traditional blush, Angela dabbed a bit of CHANEL Hydrabase Lipstick in Coco Red on the apples of Jennifer’s cheeks. She then applied CHANEL Sheer Brilliance in Sunkissed around the tops of her cheekbones, closer to the eye, for a bit of shimmer.

Jennifer’s eyes were a combination of LORAC eye shadows in Jade, Black, and Serenity, and a Tina Earnshaw shadow in Aubergine. Her lashes looked extra glamorous thanks to CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir-Black. On Jennifer’s lips, Angela used CHANEL Aqualumiere Lipshine in Panarea, available in April. To complete the look, she dusted Soleil Tan de CHANEL Bronzer on Jennifer’s skin, an exclusive creation product from CHANEL also launching in April.

  1. She just always looks so effortlessly she just throws on makeup and clothes and she is set!!

    All this talk on chanel Tina what is your opinion on the extra large jumbo classic bag…I’ve been to harrods chanel and the boutique and they are all sold out…do you know what dims it is as I really wanted to see or even purchase this old classic!!


    P.S. there is a picture of it in a fun redie pink on the chanel website!

  2. Her makeup was gorgeous, as usual. However, I felt her hair braid seemed a little juvenile for the Oscars especially. Even Miley Cyrus’ hair looked more sophisticated.

  3. About the hair braid– my friend Rachel pointed out dozens of girls at the tents at Bryant Park with the “jen aniston” he’s not that into you hair braid with two bobby pins holding it up. LOL

    I think the sun and smoking is catching up to her but still, she is gorg!

  4. She looks amazing…I sort of dig the hair braid…but can’t decide..btw I just got a similar lipstick for FREE from Glamour Magaziner to test out and I’m in love… I think you can still get some. Check it
