Get The Look: Amy Adams at the 2013 Golden Globes

Amy looked gorgeous last night. Her makeup was soft and fresh and perfectly complimented her Marchesa gown.

Makeup Artist Stephen Sollitto created a stunning look for Amy Adams, star of “The Master,” who was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture. The look perfectly complemented her “ballet pink” Marchesa gown.

FLAWLESS FACE:
· Sollitto prepped Adams’ skin using RèVive Moisture Serum Extreme ($350) to ensure the star’s skin remain moisturized throughout the red carpet and award show.
· Next, he applied Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 – Oil Free ($43) to give the skin a sheer hint of colour.
· To complete her flawless face and create a natural-looking glow, he applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Canyon ($24) to Amy’s cheek bones, followed by Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander ($24) to the apples of her cheeks.

ENCHANTING EYES:
· Sollitto applied Laura Mercier Secret Concealer ($22) around Adams’ eye area to conceal imperfections.
· Next, he applied Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Sandstone ($22) to add a hint of natural colour.
· He then applied Laura Mercier Sequin Eye Colour in Twinkling Star ($22) to create depth and definition.
· Next, he blended Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Sable ($22) onto the top of her lids and under her bottom lashes.
· Sollitto lined Adams’ eyes using Dior Style Liner ($34) and applied Dior DiorShow Backstage Makeup Mascara ($25) to elongate her lashes.

LUXURIOUS LIPS:
· Sollitto applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Plum Orchid ($26) to the star’s lips, and then completed the look by applying Laura Mercier Lip Glacè in Raspberry ($24).

Limited Edition Laura Mercier Art Deco Muse Collection!

Laura Mercier Holiday Colour Story  for 2012, Art Deco Muse.  Here are a few of my favorite items from the new line.

An super easy to use, precise liquid liner with a glossy black finish. Laura Mercier’s Black Lacquer is a rich black color and the felt tip is perfect for a thin line close to the lash line. I love the intensity of Black Lacquer it works perfectly with the shimmery, Illuminating Eye Colors from the Art Deco Muse collection.

Graphic Liquid Eyeliner ($24.00)
The ultimate liquid eyeliner. Graphic Liquid Eyeliner is a glossy, long-wearing liquid eyeliner with an easy-to-apply felt-tip applicator.

  • Black Lacquer

 

The Illuminating Eye colors have a soft, smooth texture and a  luminous finish. I tried the  Gilded  Bronze and I love how I can wear it light for a sheer golden look or layer it on for a super sparkly look. The Illuminating Eye colors have great pigmentation and a beautiful luminous sheen. 

Illuminating Eye Color ($24.00)
Eye color with a multidimensional, luminous pearl finish has a soft, bouncy texture for excellent color pay-off and a smooth, even application.

  • Gilded Bronze
  • Gilded Moonlight
  • Gilded Platinum
  • Gilded Rose Gold

 

Crème Smooth Lip Color is a decadent lipstick with  super color pay off. A single stroke will cover lips in a creamy, lightweight texture that wears comfortably due to the pure Olive Oil  formula. I love the  high shine finish and the  Crème Smooth Lip Color wears up to five hours without a touch up. And as it fades it leaves a slight stain behind giving my lips a nice natural looking flush.

Crème Smooth Lip Color ($26.00)
Laura introduces a luxurious lipstick that gives lips the ultimate in color, texture and finish. In one smoothing swipe, the cream formula envelops lips in rich color with a semi-lustrous finish. The cushiony, lightweight texture feels comfortable, while pure olive oil and vitamin E nourish. Features an elegant, modern case with a metalized finish.
