For those who want to cop her makeup style: here's one look from daily mail uk.com
Working with Thandie Newton is like getting ready for a night out with the girls, it never feels like work.

She is keen to try out new ideas and has always given me free reign ever since our first shoot together last year for Vogue, when I covered her eyes in bright purple.

For the Bafta’s last week, Thandie asked Giles Deacon to design a gown especially for the event and boy, did he deliver. This raised the beauty ‘bar’ and I had no choice but to truly go to town with the make-up.

Apart from Revolution Tinted Body Moisturiser by DuWop to subtly bronze her décolleté and arms, Thandie’s entire make-up look was created using Chanel cosmetics, as the pigments are strong and pick up beautifully on film.

I began by warming up her skin with Vitalumiere in Naturel and applied Natural Finish Loose Powder in Peche more generously than usual as the make-up had to hold right through to the dance floor of the Miramax party. I applied Reflex blush along her cheekbones. With her eyes, I started by applying the taupe colour from the Desert Rose eye shadow duo over the lid and beneath the eye, blending outward. Then, using a black eye pencil, I drew a line close to the lashes - a real must for creating smokey eyes - and applied River light eyeshadow onto the entire lid, accentuating the outer corner slightly and blending outward, towards the top of the ear.

Evergreen eyeliner was applied on the inner rim and Mac's black liquid liner was applied in a ‘tick’ to polish and define the shape. The finishing touch was lashings of black Inimitable mascara.

A trick of the trade for perfect pouts is to go over the edge of the lips using the foundation sponge and then set with powder. The neutral base makes the most of the lip colour with the added benefit of it ensuring long-lasting perfection.

I decided to combine Thandie's perfectly matte, caramel skin with Glossimer lip-gloss in Unity as it made her lips ‘pop’ and take on a ‘hyper-real’ quality.

For her hair, maestro Kerry Warn applied John Frieda’s 5 minute manager from the Frizz Ease range followed by blow drying to create a mouldable base.

The hair was then teased and pinned into its dramatic shape and sprayed well with John Frieda’s Moisture Barrier hair Spray. Sheer Blonde Wax Shine was then used to tame Thandie’s baby hairs and give a little shine
