Channel the '70s à la Amy Adams With Her Entire Beauty Breakdown

Jan 13 2014 - 1:00pm

Ahead of her win for best actress in a comedy, Amy Adams [1] had our heads turning when she stepped onto the red carpet sporting a bevy of braids in her hair and some natural, '70s-era makeup. "I wanted to give the hair a more textured look to complement the simple, clean lines of Amy's gorgeous Valentino dress [2]," hairstylist Laini Reeves said. Get her full hair and makeup breakdown below!

Reeves prepped Amy's hair with Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce Body Booster Mousse ($10) before blowing it dry to create a smooth finish. She then sectioned off her locks into four pieces before plaiting it back. The remaining strands were swept into a tight ponytail, pinned into a bun, and sprayed with Charles Worthington Style Setting Max Hold Hairspray ($10). Reeves then pulled the braids by the ears around the top of the bun, and the top braids were pulled down and around the bun for a lifted effect.

All products will be available in Target stores and online [3] starting in March.

For her makeup, Stephen Sollitto for Laura Mercier focused on bronzed, glowing skin. "This whole season, in a nod to Amy's movie American Hustle, we have been inspired by the '70s," he said. After applying foundation to Amy's face, Solitto added a light dusting of Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder in Matte Bronze [4] ($32), followed by Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Praline [5] ($24) to heighten her glow.

Amy's simple eye look was actually created using a few layers of Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour [6] ($23); Sollitto laid down Ballet Pink before brushing on Terracotta. Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Plum [7] ($26) was applied to Amy's upper lash line and the outer corner of her lower lash line. Dior Diorshow Blackout Mascara [8] ($25) completed her palette.

Amy's nails were painted by Tom Pecheux, who opted for a very clean, classic nail look. L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Collection Privee in Eva's Nude was applied in two coats.
