Amy Adams Makeup, LACMA Inaugural Art and Film Gala


Amy Adams

LACMA Inaugural Art and Film Gala, 2011

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.


To create the look, Stephen began with La Mer SPF18 Fluid Tint on Amy's face to give an all-over glow and to leave her skin looking natural. He left her face powder free, and applied Peter Thomas Roth Mattifying Gel to control shine, tapping it on after foundation.

"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.

To warm up her cheeks Stephen applied Jouer Blush in Bloom, an earthy peach color. For the lips, he used two colors. First, he dotted Clinique Different Lipstick in Sweet Honey (this looks like your own natural lip color, just punched up a tad). On top of this he applied Jouer's Nude Glisten lip gloss. This has a diamond effect on the lips and caught the light brilliantly. A perfect cap to Amy's look.
