Oscars 2009 Beauty: Amy Adams

Makeup artist Molly Stern created Amy Adams‘ look, inspired by a cross between Talouse Latrec’s dancing girls and the watercolor feeling of a Gustav Klimt painting. Here’s the how-to:

Molly started by prepping her face with Jurlique Citrus Spray to give the face a healthy lift then she gave Amy a light facial massage with La Mer’s The Moisturizing Lotion.

Next she based her face with YSL Perfect Touch #2. Then, Molly blushed her cheeks with Chantecaille Aqua Blush in Frivolous as a peachy base with Chantecaille Sesame peach eyeshadow over top.

Her eyes were based with NARS cream eyeshadow in Maracaibo. Over that, Molly blended Shu Uemura shadow in Gray 960 mixed with Shu Uemura shadow in Purple 700 all over the lid up into the crease. With a flat shadow brush she added a touch of NARS shadow in Ondine on the inside corner of her lid. Then she lined the top and underneath of her eye with Trish McEvoy’s Arabian nights definer. To soften the line underneath Molly added a soft smudge of Suqqu lavender shadow in #27. On her lashes Molly applied a soft coat of CoverGirl’s exacts eyelights in Black Ruby.

Molly based Amy’s lips with La Mer The Lip Balm then applied a thin coat of Outlast Lipstain by CoverGirl in 410. Then a sheer layer of Shu Uemura wine lip color in 265 with a dot of CoverGirl’s Plum Crazy Wetslicks at the center of her lip for a little extra pout. Amy took that along in her bag for touch ups.
