It was a big night for Amy Adams. Although she didn't win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Doubt, I'm sure she was thrilled to be part of the whole shebang. Molly Stern, the makeup artist behind Amy's glowing look, was inspired by Toulouse-Latrec's dancing girls and the style of Klimt painting. How very artistic. Get me to a museum — stat. Check out the how-to for this completely creative palette when you read more.
- Prep: To give the face a glow, Stern used Citrus Purifying Mist ($21). Next, she applied La Mer The Moisturizing Lotion ($190), for a light facial massage. How relaxing.
- Complexion: Stern applied Yves Saint Laurent Perfect Touch Foundation in #2. Then, she used Chantecaille
AquaBlush Oil-Free Gel in Frivolous ($42) as a peach base for Amy's cheeks with a peach eye shadow (yep, eye shadow) on top — Chantecaille Lasting Eye Shadow in Sesame ($28).
- Eyes: Stern applied NARS Cream Eye Shadow in Maracaibo ($21) as a base. Next, she blended Shu Uemura Pressed Eye Shadow Pearl ($20 each) in Gray 960 with Purple 700 on the lid, up to the crease. NARS Single Eye Shadow in Ondine ($22) was applied on the inside corner of her lids. The top and underneath of her eyes were lined with Trish McEvoy Eye Definer Powdered Eyeliner in Arabian Nights ($16).
- Lips: Stern prepped Amy's lips with La Mer The Lip Balm ($45). Then she applied CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain Lip Color in Bit of Blossom ($7.50), along with a sheer layer of Shu Uemura "Rouge Unlimited" Lipstick in Wine 265 ($23). A little CoverGirl Wetslicks Amazemint Lipgloss in Plum Crazy ($6) in the center of her lip added an extra pout.
