Amy Adams @ MET Ball 2011 Makeup How-to
Amy Adams @ MET Ball 2011
Amy Adams had her makeup done by celebrity makeup artist Stephen Solitto, who said, “Tonight’s inspiration for the Met Ball was Amy’s sophisticated L’Wren Scott dress. It was this beautiful mauve with an intricate black pattern. As soon as I saw the picture of the dress, I knew I would do a muted smoky eye with the CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Misty-Soft. It was a perfect color match.”
To start the process, I primed Amy’s face with CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Fluid. This moisturizer is so luxurious; it really feels likes it’s working on your skin to get it in the best condition before the big night.
Amy has beautiful skin, but for the red carpet it needs to be perfection. CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige – Pastel is how I achieved that with her. It gives flawlessly light coverage so your skin looks its best. Healthy, but not too shiny.
I love doing Amy’s eyes because they are so perfectly shaped and as soon as you put anything on them they pop. To make them stand out tonight I lined her upper lids with CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Cassis. To be dramatic and get swept up in the glamour of the Met Ball, I dragged this line way out past the lashes as well. Next, I swept the deeper purple shade in the CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Misty-Soft over the Cassis to blend and soften from lash line all the way to brow. I also took the brush and applied this shade to her lower lash line connecting this to the upsweep on her lids. To pop the eyes from underneath, I used CHANEL Cassis again on her lower lash line and to make sure the color match wasn’t too precious I dusted the outer upper and lower corners of her eye with the darker grey shade in the CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Gris-Subtil. I topped off her look with Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir on both the upper and lower lashes.
On Amy’s cheeks, I used CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Dust as it gave her the perfect flush she needed. To pull her whole look together, I applied CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Bel-Ami. This lip is strong, but wearable and a perfect balance to her smoky eye. To add a final touch, I applied CHANEL Nail Colour in Black Satin to her hands, and when she left for the Met Ball she looked like the movie star she is.
