Bella Interview: Shane Paish, Dior Global Makeup Advisor

When Charlize Theron travels the world for red-carpet events, Shane Paish is not far away. As the global makeup advisor for Dior, he comes up with beautiful makeup looks — often while preparing Charlize for the camera.

In between creating these varied makeup looks for her Hancock premieres, he had time for a quick e-mail interview. Along with letting us know that Charlize is "addicted" to L'Or de Vie skin care, he's revealed his inspiration for these looks.

To find out what kinds of makeup looks best on women with Charlize's coloring,

.

The cities provided inspiration for the Hancock makeup looks. What particularly inspired you? Was it the architecture, the people, its history...?
A mixture of everything, actually. For Russia, the obvious inspiration is the color red and also this very bold, no-holds-barred attitude the women there have towards makeup. Russian women like to be noticed and they love their makeup! So I had a lot of fun with that look; it was very sophisticated and glamorous. Charlize was also wearing this gorgeous red dress so the lips just kind of went along with that. Parisian women, on the other hand, are a bit more sophisticated and subtle. There is an air of sensuality in everything they do, but it's a bit more under-the-radar. Charlize's look for Paris had that cool, avant garde feel—and everyone likes a sexy, smoky eye.

Charlize has fair skin and blonde hair. Which makeup colors flatter this
combination most?

There are two looks that I tend to lean towards when it comes to Charlize. One is the dark, smoky eye and pale lip (she looks amazing in this!) and the other is a softer, more bronzy look: still a smoky eye, but using golds and browns, with pink or peachy lips. I think most people look good in a sheer pink gloss, and a little blush or bronzer never hurt anyone. I'm also a huge fan in general of the smoky eye—it adds instant sex appeal!

After you apply Charlize’s makeup, what happens if she needs a touchup? Are you usually nearby, or is she like the rest of us with a lipstick tucked in her clutch?
Charlize carries Dior blotting papers (genius!) and a lipstick or gloss in her clutch to keep fresh. Pretty simple!

Within the beauty/makeup world, what feels fresh to you right now?
Peachy, coral-y lip colors, and smoky eyes using unexpected shades like bronze and gold. Also, metallics are my absolute favorite right now. They aren't the glittery metallics of years past but more of a sheer glimmer, a glow.

Yep, Lizlee89. She is wearing Rouge Dior Lipstick in Red Premiere #752. A fitting name, huh? Oh, and the Paris look is second in from the left.

hey Bella, do you know what the lipstick Charlize is wearing at the Russia (I think - it's the one where she's wearing the red dress and red lip) premiere? I am in love with that color...
lizlee89 lizlee89 7 years
love the last two - she's so beautiful that basically any look looks amazing on her - but I like the no-makeup look or the smokey eye best on her, and I love that red lip!
