Amy Adams At The Academy Awards — Flawless Makeup
Amy’s makeup couldn’t have been more fitting to her look. Celebrity makeup artist Stephen Sollitto created a look of flushed cheeks and rosy lips. He told HollywoodLife.com: “She wore a stunning sapphire blue Gucci gown, modern and clean. Obviously, I am inspired by this color and simply wanted the makeup to be just as sophisticated.”
Stephen kept Amy’s eyes looking bright with a champagne colored shadow and thick black lashes. What really stood out about her look were her colorful cheeks and glossy lips. We think this look was flawless!
Here are the exact products used:
To prep the skin, he used RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream ($195). “I always moisturize with this product. This is the line I use on myself every day. Prepping the skin is just as important as the makeup you use.”
For the base, he used Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide (NEW — Coming Fall 2014). “This foundation is simple to apply with a wet sponge or your fingers. It’s long wear, oil free and lightweight. In the end it gives you a matte finish so you don’t have to dust your face with loose powder, it’s built in.”
On the eyes, he applied Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Terracotta ($24) to Amy’s lids and Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Black Karat ($24) under the star’s bottom lashes.
He tapped his “ideal champagne shade,” Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sugar Frost ($26) to the inner corners of her eyes.
He applied NARS Eye Paint Liner in Tatar ($25) to make Amy’s lash line “pop.”
On the lashes, he used Dior Black Out Mascara ($25).
For a “spring-like blush,” he used Tom Ford Beauty Cheek Color in Ravish ($56).
For the lips, he wanted a look that was “pretty, a little bit rosy and glossy.” He used Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour in Cozy ($25) — it has “the perfect punch I was looking for,” he said. He applied Tom Ford Beauty Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Rose Crush ($45) on top “for a bit of glamour to match the day.”

For Amy’s Hair, celebrity hairstylist Renato Campora “wanted the hair to compliment the dress. It’s very classic and elegant,” Renato says. He shared the exact steps to achieving this red carpet look!
“Step 1: On wet hair, apply Kérastase Mousse Bouffante.
Step 2: Part the hair on the left side, distributing Kérastase Forme Fatale from mid-lengths to ends and blow dry with a round brush.
Step 3: Take the top section and separate it from the rest of the hair.
Step 4: Create a French twist with the remaining back section and pin into place with bobby pins.
Step 5: Apply Kérastase Forme Fatale throughout all sections for optimal shine.
Step 6: Curl the remaining top section with a 1″ barrel iron to create waves. Let the hair cool and brush through.
Step 7: Pull the top lengths back, combining them into the French twist and pin.
Step 8: Polish off the look with Kérase Laque Coutoure.”
