Amy Adams @ Oscars 2009 Beauty Breakdown
Amy Adams @ Academy Awards 2009
Inspiration: A cross between Talouse Latrec’s dancing girls and the watercolor feeling of a Gustav Klimt painting. The day was amazing. The goal was to make sure that her makeup was saturated but not overdone.

Molly Stern, makeup artist, started by prepping the face with Jurlique citrus spray to give the face a healthy lift then she gave Amy a light facial massage with La Mer moisturizing lotion. Next she based her face with YSL perfect touch #2.
Then she blushed her cheeks with Chantecaille Aqua Blush in Frivolous as a peachy base with Chantecaille Sesame peach eyeshadow over top. Her eyes are based with NARS cream eyeshadow in Maracaibo. Over that she 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 to give the eye a little gold hint. Molly lined the top and underneath of her eye with Trish McEvoy’s Arabian nights definer. To soften the line underneath she added a soft smudge of Suqqu lavender shadow in #27.
On her lashes she put 1 soft coat of CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Mascara in Black Ruby. On her lip, Molly based her lip with La Mer lipbalm then applied a thin coat of Outlast Lipstain by CoverGirl in Plum Pout. Then a sheer layer of Shu Uemura wine lip color in 265 with a dot of CoverGirl Wetslicks AmazeMint in Plum Crazy at the center of her lip for a little extra pout. That’s also what she took in her bag for touch ups.
