Amy looked stunning at the New York City premiere of her movie ‘Big Eyes’ on Dec. 15. We chatted with her makeup artist — get her exact look below.
Amy Adams, 40, was simply glowing at the premiere. Her lips were a pretty brick color while her eyes were lined in gold — perfect for the holiday season.
Amy Adams At ‘Big Eyes’ Premiere — Her Exact Beauty Look
Makeup artist Stephen Sollitto described the inspiration: “I am always inspired by three things: the woman I am working with, the dress, and the event. All those things together dictate color and direction for me and I immediately thought gold, especially because of the color of her olive dress. Perhaps the holidays played a part in that decision, but olive and gold is a great color combination for a reason. All together it’s the perfect look for a special holiday event such as an exciting movie premiere.”
Here’s the exact how-to:
“Face: With a soft damp sponge I blended CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in 10 Beige into the skin. I then dusted CHANEL Limited Edition Camélia de Plumes Highlighting Powder on specific areas — the forehead, on top of the cheek bone, the bridge of the nose and chin — to brighten up the complexion. This way the skin looks glowing on the red carpet.
Cheeks: On her cheeks, I used CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Initial for a perfect winter flush.”

“Eyes: I like starting the eye with one blank canvas. I love Jouer Buttercream eyeshadow for this. Then on the almond of the eye — at the corners and underneath the bottom lashes — I used the gold shadow from the CHANEL Limited Edition Les 5 Ombres in Oiseaux de Nuit. On the upper lash line I used CHANEL Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil in Noir and blended that with a small brush using CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Tissé Fantaisie, a deep copper and softer alternative to all black.
Then to make the eyes really stand out, I traced the faintest line of CHANEL Ligne Graphique Liquid Eyeliner in Noir right at the outer corner of the upper lash line. To brighten the eyes I like to use CHANEL Limited Edition Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Or Blanc on the inner corners. Lastly, I used a coat of Benefit BADgal Lash Mascara for deep black lashes.
Lips: I wanted a lip that would make her eyes pop blue. At first I thought of red, but I didn’t want it to steal away from the dress so instead I chose a raisin color. I started with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Nourishing Lip Care to prep the lips. Then I chose CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in L’Amoureuse with a coat of CHANEL Glossimer in Giggle over it for a bit of shine. To keep the lip from feathering at the edges I outlined the lips with CHANEL Precision Lip Definer in Tulip.”
