Amy Adams looked like a goddess at the LACMA Inaugural Art and Film Gala. A stunning, neutral pink Gucci gown embroidered with gold beading and an old-Hollywood style neckline was perfectly complemented by her long, wavy locks and served as inspiration for makeup artist Stephen Sollitto. The star shone with natural, golden based makeup and nude gloss, looking every inch the movie star.
"I wanted her eyes to be soft like the bottom of the dress, but strong like the dress itself," said Stephen. To achieve this, he lined Amy's upper lids with Smolder by MAC. He then brushed the plum color from Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow 18 Kaska Beige on the whole lid, into the crease, out of the corners and also under the bottom lashes in a thick yet muted line. On the center of the lids over that eye shadow he brushed Side Car, a shimmery taupe from Urban Decay's Naked Palette, also rubbing it under her bottom lashes to soften the line and add a reflective quality to the eye. In the inner corners of her eyes (to mimic the beading of the dress), he dotted a gold from that same palette, called Half Baked, which opened up the heavily shadowed eye. To finish, he applied three coats of Chanels Inimitable Mascara in Black to make her eyes come to life.
