Golden Globes Beauty: Amy Adams.

Golden Globes nominee for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Feature Film, Amy Adams, looked radiant as she wore a gorgeous strapless Marchesa gown with her fabulous red hair worn in a flowing, back-braided updo created by celebrity stylist Laini Reeves and makeup by celebrity Makeup Artist Molly Stern.

Celebrity makeup artist Molly Stern was instantly inspired by the “painterly feel” of Amy Adams' teal Marchesa gown. Molly created a look for the star of “The Fighter” that was strong and defined yet allowed her natural beauty to shine through.

The makeup products used on Molly:

  • YSL Perfect Touch Radiant Brush Foundation
  • Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush in #
  • Color Design 5 Pan Palette in Taupe Craze (out in Feb.
  • Le Stylo Waterproof EyeLiner in Minui
  • Hypnôse Custom Volume Mascara in Blac
  • Color Design Matte Lipcolor in Stylist
  • L’Absolu Nu in Evening Lace (out in March)

Laini Reeves explains how Amy's hair look was styled:

I wanted to create a soft 20’s mood, but in a different, modern way.  We started by changing the texture of her hair before we went on to loosely braid and roll the chignon. 

Amy has a beautiful, full and thick head of hair and a nice, natural wave. We started by washing her hairwith Moroccanoil® Moisture Repair Shampoo which infuses the hairwith argan oil, keratins, fatty acids, and proteins. Combined with Moroccanoil® Moisture Repair Conditioner, it immediately controlled the hair and left itsmoother, frizz free and easy to manage and style.

I then applied Moroccanoil® Hydrating Styling Cream while it was drying, from root to end to give soft hold while further smoothing the texture and adding definition and shine.  I rough-dried the hair with my hands to get the water out and created a bit of a messed up texture with a slight touch of wave for a more modern, freer look.  The hair was air dried except at the roots, where I used a blow dryer.

Next, I used a 1” curling iron to make curls in different parts of the hair that needed to be filled in and then smoothed and blended them in.  I made a side part and prepared some pieces from the front of the hair to frame her face, pinning them in an “S”-shape and away from the rest of the hair.

I gathered and pulled back the rest of hair, made a loose braid that I doubled up, rolled upwards and pinned at the nape, with the cross texture side of the braid showing.  Only five thick bobby pins were used to secure the style in place.

Finally, I released the “S”-shaped sections in the front and pinned them behind the ear to open her face up and to show off her cheek bones.  I then sprayed the look with Moroccanoil® Luminous Hairspray to keep everything in place with movable shine, without looking like it was sprayed.
