Daily Make-Up Secrets!
Transforming Keira Knightley into the title character in Anna Karenina was no small feat, according to make-up and hair designer Ivana Primorac. "The look of Anna Karenina in the movie was challenging because we were creating a look pleasing to the modern aesthetic that is also true to the period, just as the clothing design was inspired by '50s Dior couture, but was also of the period," Primorac said. "Make-up, hair and clothing design had to complement and follow that design thread. We changed Keira's coloring, hair color, hairline [and] eyebrow shape—a lot!"

"CHANEL Le Blanc De Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base was the final veil over the whole make-up to give it luminosity and to create a 'final skin' to marry all the shapes created on the face into one luminous, seemingly make-up-free skin."
