The truth is, I was on Team Jolie.
Yeah, I know the supposed feud went down about 10 years ago, and the only people who still care are the overly enthusiastic commenters on gossip websites. (Side note: have you ever read the comments on www.usmagazine.com? They’re actually more entertaining than the article!)
But I digress. My reason for sticking with Ms. Jolie was one of simple fact: you can’t steal a man. Either a man wants to leave his wife, or he doesn’t. Unfortunately for both Angelina and Jennifer, they were unwilling participants in the tug-of-war of the century.
Of course, when Brad Pitt is the grand prize, I *almost* understand, and forgive, the hype.
And aside from Jennifer’s stoic resolve to stay respectful when speaking to the media, I had to admire one thing…. her otherworldly incredible hair and skin. Truly! There is just something so flawless about her beauty, from her perfectly bronzed skin to her thick veil of stylishly coiffed locks. She is a beauty and style icon; an ambassador to those who revere a fresh, natural look.
Recently, AVEENO Global Ambassador Jennifer Aniston showed off her glowing skin at the premiere of her upcoming film, Cake. Aniston’s make-up artist, Angela Levin, created the star’s natural look, which she debuted at the Toronto Film Festival. And I just happen to have all the beauty tips, straight from Angela Levin herself!
“I started the day by prepping Jen’s skin with AVEENO POSITIVELY RADIANT Skin Brightening Daily Scrub. It’s very gentle and leaves the skin feeling clean and fresh, making it a perfect surface for makeup application.
I proceeded by applying AVEENO POSITIVELY RADIANT Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 on her face and neck. Jen loves this moisturizer – it feels light on the skin and is very effective in keeping it hydrated and toned throughout the day.
I then applied a light coat of foundation by CHANEL Perfection Lumière Velvet, in two colors – 60 Beige on her neck and outer areas of her face and 50 Beige in the center.
I then used CHANEL Les Beiges in N50 as a bronzer on her forehead, chin and cheek using the brush that comes with the compact. I love this product because it’s matte and I can build the application to heavier or lighter.
For her cheeks, I mixed CHANEL Cream Blush in Chamade with Make Up Forever Cream Blush 335 and gently applied using my fingers, creating a sun kissed natural look.
After applying all the creams and powders, I focused on her eyes and used a combination of Revlon Eye Shadow Chocolate and Melon and Edward Bess Prismette Eye Shadow Quad in Cosmic Bliss. They are all rich warm colors that really bring out Jen’s gorgeous blue eyes. I always finish the eyes with the one and only inimitable intense CHANEL mascara in black – no eye liner was used for this look.
To finish the look I slightly filled her eye brows with Senna Sketch-A-Brow pencil in light taupe.”
Angela didn’t dish on Jennifer’s lip colour, but it’s so natural, I’m sure I could find a dupe in my own makeup bag. And there you have it! A play-by-play account of how you too can get Jennifer’s gorgeous, glowing look.
Of course, by all accounts, Jennifer didn’t make out too badly in the Brangelina saga – her new man is quite the looker himself. Fingers crossed that the next look she debuts is a bridal one!
