Mommy-to-be Cate Blanchett glowed in a glam metallic gown by Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga. Chanel makeup artist Lucienne Zammit kept Cate’s face “dewy and fresh” — in contrast to her dark dress — using Stila Perfecting Foundation in A, $30, Laura Mercier Secret Concealer in #1, $22, and LORAC Translucent Touch Up Powder in TL 1, $32. Chanel Powder Blush in Rose Petale, $40, and Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in Darling, $30, enhanced Cate’s natural radiance. Zammit then brought out her blue eyes with Chanel shimmery Quadra Eye Shadows in Demure and Dunes, $55. She applied light peach shadow in the inner eye corners, rosy gold and frosted pink in the center of the eyelids, and brown in the outer corners. Mixing a smudge of the brown shadow with Chanel Intense Eye Pencil in Ambre, $27, completed the look.

To relax the glitz of Cate’s dress, Matrix stylist Mark Townsend went for a “fun and sexy” style rather than an updo. He started a day early, creating texture with Amplify Foam Volumizer, $18, and a blow-out. The next morning, he sprayed Biolage colorcaretherapie Shielding Shine Mist, $15, and scrunched Cate’s hair all over. Before using a 1″ curling iron, he spritzed hair with Vavoom Gold Heat Iron-in Volume Protective Dry Mist, $14, and then curled sections from end to root, clipping each curl to set while her makeup was applied. Later, he removed the clips and raked his hands (again sprayed with the Shine Mist) through her hair. Using a natural-bristle eyebrow brush sprayed with hairspray, he tamed flyaways on top and created loose texture at the bottom.
