Get the Look: Emma Stone at the Met Ball 2012.

 

Mara Roszak did the hair for Emma Stone at the 2012 Met Ball. She used all MATRIX products to style her beautiful look.


INSPIRATION: To complement her young and vivacious Lanvin gown, stylist Mara Roszak wanted Emma’s hair to emulate the same fun and effortless style. Describing the look as “doll-like,” Mara kept her look feminine yet playful with a flirtatious and modern, loose bun and side-swept bangs.

STEP-BY-STEP:
Step 1: Starting with damp hair, applied MATRIX Total Results Amplify Wonder Boost Root Lifter evenly throughout hair for all-over volume without weighting it down
Step 2: Blew-out hair with medium-sized bore bristle brush for a soft, natural finish
Step 3: Applied MATRIX Design Pulse Mega Dust to the roots for extra texture, volume and hold
Step 4: Gathered hair at the top of the head in a pony-tail. Secured with elastic, letting the front and side pieces around the hairline loosely fall out for a wispy, feminine look.
Step 5: With a soft brush or comb, gently teased the roots of the pony tail to add more volume
Step 6: Loosely pinned hair into an undone bun shape, crisscrossing bobby pins for extra hold
Step 7: Gently swooped bangs across forehead, securing them to the side with Lanvin hair accessory
Step 8: Sprayed MATRIX Total Results Amplify Hairspray all over for all-night hold
Step 9: Finished off the look with Biolage colorcarethérapie Shine Shake Spray for a high-gloss, chic finish

mark Celebrity Makeup Artist Julie Harris shared her tricks for creating Ashley Green’s look at the 2012 Met Ball.


The Look:
I was inspired to keep Ashley’s flawless skin beautiful and glowy, and to focus the makeup on her eyes to compliment the Grecian nature of her gorgeous white Donna Karan Atelier gown.” - Julie Harris.
 

Face:
I prepped Ashley’s skin with mark Primed for Perfection Face Primer. Next, I applied a thin coat of mark Min-A-Real Cream-To-Powder Foundation to enhance her skin tone. I tended to any imperfections with mark Conceal For Real Long-Lasting Hook Up Concealer.”
 
Cheeks:
“For a dewy glow, I highlighted Ashley’s brow bones, cheek bones, nose and inner eyes with mark Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes. Next, I swept mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush Custom Color Palette in Chica along her cheekbones and Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in After Glo on the apples of her cheeks. I set the look with a hint of mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder to the high points of her face to give a hint of warmth.”


Eyes:
“For Ashley’s eyes, I started by smudging mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Industria close to her lash line to add some definition. Next, I blended mark I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Minx onto her lid and shaded with Plum Velvet in her crease and outer corner using a small fluff brush to for a soft smudge effect. I curled Ashley’s lashes with mark Make Me Lash Eyelash Curler and finished by applying three coats of mark Lash All You Want High-Volume Mascara in Black to her top lashes and one to her bottom lashes.”
 

Lips:
“I applied mark Lipclick Full Color Lipstick in Baby Luv and added a hint of mark Gloss On Lip Gloss in Sunset Beach for a gorgeous, neutral lip.”
