Get The Look: Amy Adams at the 2014 Golden Globes

71st Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

Amy looked beautiful last night she just gets better with age. Check out how to recreate her Golden Globes 70′s Inspired look.

Amy Adams 2014 Golden Globe Awards
Look by Stephen Sollitto for Laura Mercier

Makeup artist Stephen Sollitto created a “chic” 1970s-inspired makeup look for Adams, who won the Golden Globe for “Best Actress (Musical or Comedy)” for her role as Sydney Prosser in “American Hustle.”

Sollitto stated, “This whole season, in a nod to Amy’s movie ‘American Hustle,’ we have been inspired by the ‘70s. With their fantastic smiles, healthy glows and brushed out hair, we have kept the decade’s style in mind for each look.”

FACE: Flawless, bronzed, glowing skin was the focus of the look

  • Sollitto began prepping Adams’ skin the evening before the Globes, instructing the actress to apply RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream Retexturizing Hydrator, ($195) and RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream Ultra Retexturizing Hydrator, ($140) after cleansing her skin.
  • The day of the awards, Sollitto applied the NEW Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide (COMING FALL 2014) all over Adams’ face. Sollitto stated, “This foundation goes on easily but the finish is very polished. It’s long wearing, oil free and lightweight. The best thing is that is gives you a matte finish so you don’t have to dust your face with loose powder. It’s built in, simple and genius.”
  •  To “catapult” the look into the ‘70s, Sollitto applied a light dusting of Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder in Matte Bronze, ($32).
  • He achieved the “perfect glow” by applying Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Praline, ($24) to Adams’ cheeks using his fingers.

LIPS: “Nudish orange” lips supported the star’s “bronzy glow”

  •  Sollitto applied a mixture of Laura Mercier Crème Lip Colour in Discretion and Tangerine, ($24/each) because the customized shade “supported Adams’ bronzy glow, but didn’t compete with it for attention.”

EYES: Neutral eyes that “pop”

  • First, Sollitto created a modern neutral base by applying Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Ballet Pink, ($23) all over Adams’ lids.
  • Next, he brushed Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Terracotta, ($23) into Adams’ lash line and lid, and sweeping it out at the corners of her eyes and under her bottom lashes.
  • To make Adams’ eyes “pop,” he applied Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick Colour in Plum, ($26) to her upper lash line and the outer corner of her lower lash line.
  • He then applied Dior Diorshow Blackout Mascara ($25) to her upper and lower lashes.
  • Sollitto finished the look by dotting Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick Colour in Sugar Frost, ($26) to the corners of the Adams’ eyes.

Make Her Up Review: JeNu Active Youth Skincare System!

jenu-6

I’ve had this bad boy for about a month now, and I really wanted to devote some time to trying it out. A lot of these anti-aging products don’t do what they say they will, and offer false hope for positive results. So here I am – introducing you to JeNu’s Active Youth Skincare System!

This little wand is the latest and greatest in ultrasound skincare products. Using this system, you can deliver 12 times the anti-aging ingredients into the skin versus cream alone. You can use it on your eyes (like I did), and your lips. Heck, anywhere you have some lines you want reduced!

For an unprecedented reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet, puffiness, and dark circles around the eyes, look no further than JeNu. Using a completely different approach to anti-aging, JeNu combines the power of gentle ultrasound wave technology with an advanced eye treatment—together they give your eyes the visible, age-defying results you crave. In a clinical study of 30 women, JeNu showed remarkable anti-wrinkle and pro-hydration results in just 2 weeks.

I used this primarily on my eyes, because I have visible bags under my eyes, dark circles, and crow’s feet. Most anti-aging products come only in the form of creams. How about a cream – PLUS a handheld ultrasound wand that will target your trouble areas?? YES PLEASE! This wand helps you reverse the signs of aging, from deep within your skin…not just on a surface level.

JeNu bioscientists in Seattle developed a new way to deliver skin medication with the use of ultrasound waves, to increase the effectiveness of their product. The ultrasound activates the healing ingredients in their Active-Youth Eye Treatment and Lip Serum.  In as few as 14 days, you can see obvious changes in your skin. I DID. I noticed a huge difference in my skin. My eyes look younger, the dark circles are reduced, and the crows feet are shrinking! Next I’m going to try it on my lips, and see what that has to offer. From what I’ve read it plumps the lips, and smooths them out.

JeNu Features and benefits:

  • A professional quality ultrasound system that takes just minutes a day.
  • Infused with advanced microsphere technology and key anti-aging and nourishing ingredients – vitamins A and C, matrixyl peptides, hyaluronic acid, Volulip™ and olive and grapeseed oils.
  • Formulated without parabens, sulfates, triclosans, phthalates or GMOs.

The JeNu Wand works by infusing hundreds of thousands of safe, gentle, ultrasound waves per second into the Active-Youth Eye Treatment and Active-Youth Lip Serum, activating the microspheres. Once activated, the treatment revitalizes the delicate skin around your eyes by infusing proven antioxidants and skin-firming and hydrating ingredients more effectively for up to a 45% reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and up to a 92% increase in hydration. Smoothes away dryness and leaves lips looking full and healthy while restoring skin’s elasticity, refining texture and brightening the complexion.

JeNu System includes:

  • Ultrasound Wand.
  • Active-Youth Eye Treatment.
  • Active-Youth Lip Serum.
  • Wall charger.
  • Countertop charger.
  • User guide.
