Makeup Artist Stephen Sollitto created a stunning look for Amy Adams, star of “The Master,” who was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture. The look perfectly complemented her “ballet pink” Marchesa gown.
FACE: Sollitto prepped Adams’ skin using RèVive Moisture Serum Extreme ($350) to ensure the star’s skin remain moisturized throughout the red carpet and award show. Next, he applied Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 – Oil Free ($43) to give the skin a sheer hint of colour. To complete her flawless face and create a natural-looking glow, he applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Canyon ($24) to Amy’s cheek bones, followed by Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander ($24) to the apples of her cheeks.
EYES: Sollitto applied Laura Mercier Secret Concealer ($22) around Adams’ eye area to conceal imperfections. Next, he applied Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Sandstone ($22) to add a hint of natural colour. He then applied Laura Mercier Sequin Eye Colour in Twinkling Star ($22) to create depth and definition. Next, he blended Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Sable ($22) onto the top of her lids and under her bottom lashes. Sollitto lined Adams’ eyes using Dior Style Liner ($34) and applied Dior DiorShow Backstage Makeup Mascara ($25) to elongate her lashes.
LIPS: Sollitto applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Plum Orchid ($26) to the star’s lips, and then completed the look by applying Laura Mercier Lip Glacè in Raspberry ($24).

HAIR STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL
Her hair look, created by Laini Reeves for Moroccanoil, combined Old Hollywood and Deco references in a unique, loose and modern way.
“It was such a special gown, so form fitting, off the shoulder with a beautiful flow of fabric, that I definitely wanted to accent that glamorous nuance. The head-turning style featured a new take on the classic marcel wave, with a small, loose, twisted bun placed on the side of the nape behind the waved detail. The bun was tied tight and low, and held in place with small golden bobby pins. I wanted to create a sense of freedom to the look so the hair didn’t look like a set. Hair on top was flatter to the forehead, with the waved detail starting 3 inches from the root. I really liked the way it fell, and kept the entire look soft. The style had to emphasize shine to reflect the light, and define the detail in a silky looking way. This allowed a lighter, messier look without appearing disheveled.”
How Laini Reeves for Moroccanoil created the look: ”We first shampooed the hair with Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Moroccanoil Extra Volume Conditioner to give shiny volume without any weight. After making a side part and brushing the hair into place, I then rough dried it using my fingers. I placed a clip in the spot where I wanted the wave to start. Next, I lightly misted Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray from root to end for a light, luminous shine that would reflect the detail of the style. Then I used a large crimping iron to form the wave, taking 2” vertical sections, starting at a face-flattering point alongside the corner of the eyebrow. I sprayed the rest of the hair again with Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray, brushed it through with a soft bristle brush, then pulled it to the lower right side of the nape. After making a ponytail (held with a hair band), I twisted the hair around my fingers and rolled it into a little bun supported with gold bobby pins.
To finish, I sprayed the look with Moroccanoil Luminious Hairspray for natural-looking hold with shine.”
