Amy Adams was one of the very few who wore some color at the Academy Awards last nights. Her overall look was total glam. Stunning.
To get the look that Amy Adams wore at the Oscar's, check out this step-by-step from CoverGirl Makeup Artist Molly R. Stern.
First of all I have to say I was the most excited I have ever been this morning. I couldn't sleep a wink. I was dreaming about Amy's makeup.
I started by prepping the face with Jurlique citrus spray to give the face a healthy lift then I gave Amy a light facial massage with La Mer moisturizing lotion.
Next I based her face with YSL perfect touch #2. Then l blushed her cheeks with Chantecaille Aqua Blush in Frivolous as a peachy base with Chantecaille Sesame peach eyeshadow over top.
Her eyes are based with NARS cream eyeshadow in Maracaibo. Over that I blended Shu Uemura shadow in gray 960 mixed with shu uemura shadow in purple 700 all over the lid up into the crease. With a flat shadow brush I added a touch of NARS shadow in Ondine on the inside corner of her lid to give the eye a little gold hint. I lined the top and underneath of her eye with Trish McEvoy's Arabian nights definer. To
soften the line underneath I added a soft smudge of Suqqu lavender shadow in #27. On her lashes I put 1 soft coat of CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Mascara in Black Ruby.
On her lip I based her lip with La Mer lipbalm then applied a thin coat of Outlast Lipstain by CoverGirl in Plum Pout. Then a sheer layer of Shu Uemura wine lip color in 265 with a dot of CoverGirl Wetslicks AmazeMint in Plum Crazy at the center of her lip for a little extra pout. That's also what she took in her bag for touch ups.
Inspiration. A cross between Talouse Latrec's dancing girls and the watercolor feeling of a Gustav Klimt painting.
The day was amazing. My goal was to make sure that her makeup was saturated but not overdone. I wanted to give her a face without competing with the dress.
The plum and purple makeup is so unexpected when worn with red. But with her beautiful hair and skin tone, it made her eyes simply, pop. I loves this look! And it wants me to try CoverGirl Exact eyelights Mascara in Black Ruby pronto.
