Amy Adams – Golden Globes Makeup

Amy Adams, one of my favorite actresses, won the Golden Globe last night for Best Actress in a comedy series for American Hustle. Amy wore a plunging Valentino gown, hair in a braided up do, and the makeup. Let’s discuss the makeup. Amy’s fresh faced beauty look was flawless and  complimented her ensemble effortlessly.

Stephen Sollitto from Laura Mercier is responsible for achieving Amy’s gorgeous look. Amy’s look began the night before the awards. She applied ReVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream Retexturizing Hydrator and ReVive Moisturizing Renewal Eye Cream Ultra Retexturizing Hydrator.

Stephen then applied new Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide the day of the awards. This product will be available Fall 2014. Be on the lookout. Fluide foundation soaks into the entire face while leaving a matte finish.

Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder in Matte Bronze was applied lightly. Blush followed using Laura Mercier Creme Cheek Colour in Praline.

For a nude color lip with an orange glow Sollitto mixed Laura Mercier Creme Lip Colour in Discretion and  Tangerine together to achieve a customized look.

To create Amy’s eyes, Sollitto applied Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Ballet Pink over the entire lid.

Then Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Terracotta was pressed into Amy’s lash line, lid- extended  onto the corners of the eyes and under her bottom lashes for a dramatic effect.

Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick Colour in Plum was applied to her upper lash line and just the outer corners of lower lash line.

Dior Diorshow Blackout Mascara was applied to upper and lower lashes.

Just the corners of Amy’s eyes were dotted with Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick in Sugar Frost.

And there you have it! Movie Star perfection.

RéVive

As we are still enjoying the summer months it is important to protect skin from the harmful effects of the sun. The INTENSITÉ CRÈME LUSTRE DAY by RéVive  is an SPF 30 anti-aging skincare that can be applied to the face and neck. Apply to clean face in the morning.The results are immediate. My face felt soft and looked plumper as my fine lines were diminished. The slight luster in the crème added a glow to my entire face. I believe the only way to describe the results is to use the word healthy. My face appeared healthy looking, smooth, and youthful. After I applied this luxurious crème I hesitated to wear any makeup! A little goes a long way with this lightly botanical scented crème. Make the investment for this skincare product, which will be just as beneficial in the colder months when the sunrays are still present.
