Amy Adams | Oscars 2011

Amy Adams | Oscars 2011


The inspiration for Amy Adams' Oscars beauty look was Old Hollywood Disco. To complement her midnight blue, shimmering L'Wren Scott column gown, make-up artist Molly Stern gave Amy a fresh-faced look with a pop of peach lipstick. Here's how to get her look in Stern’s own words:

1. I prepped her skin with the always glorious Jurlique Face Spray in lavender and Creme de la Mer to moisturise.

2. For her skin I mixed Creme de la Mer foundation with Josie Maran Argan Skin Illuminizer. Next I warmed up her cheeks with Josie Maran Color Stick in Petal Pink and highlighted her cheek bone with NARS blush in Sex Appeal.

3. For Amy's eyes I blasted a bright gold in the inside corner of her lid with NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Hollywood Land  then built out the depth with navy duo shadow from NARS in Bateu Ivre. I lined her lash line with Sue Devitt Eye Intensifier Pencil in Victoria Falls and added lots and lots of mascara in dark blue by Beauty Is Life.

4. For her lip I used Cover Girl Lip Perfection in #320 Soulmate with NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Frivolous.
