Amy Adams’ Beauty Look from “Julie & Julia” Premiere

amyadamscelebutopia3.jpg

From COVERGIRL’S Celebrity Makeup Artist Molly R. Stern:

“It always seems that inspiration ends up coming from the dress. Last night Amy wore a gorgeous full length Carolina Herrera gown with a charcoal and white pattern speckled with gold beading. So I borrowed from that exquisite color palette.”

“We went for a steel and copper smoky lid, gorgeous full lashes, a peachy cheek and a golden amber lip.”

Face
I first started by prepping her skin with a refreshing spray of Jurlique rose water balancing mist. And then moisturized her skin with La Mer’s moisturizing lotion

Next I based her skin sparingly with the new Cle de peau cream foundation. Then I warmed up her cheeks with the gorgeous new COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Plush Peach.

Eyes
For her eye, I based the lid with a combination of Shu Uemura’s cream eye shadow in P taupe, and Vincent Longo’s silky orange liquid eyeshadow

Over that I blended the new NARS shadows in Brumes.

Under her eye I smudged COVERGIRL Exact Eyelights Eyeliner in Radiant Sapphire in the outer corner and on the inner corner I dabbed a smidge of Shu Uemura pressed eye shadow in NME gold 350.

On her lashes I coated them with COVERGIRL Exact Eyelights Mascara in Black Sapphire.

Lips
To finish off the look I tinted her lips with COVERGIRL Outlast Lipstain in Cinnamon Smile with a dab of YSL golden gloss over top.
