Amy Adams was stunning at the recent Man of Steel movie premiere, hailing a look of pure Hollywood glamour. We’ve got the 411 on how you can steal her look. Read on for more…
Amy’s amazing 20’s–inspired hair look was designed by celebrity stylist Laini Reeves for Moroccanoil. “I was completely inspired by the intricacy and femininity of Amy’s spectacular Nina Ricci gown,” explained Laini Reeves. “This hair look is very sensual and alluring, reminiscent of the classic screen sirens of the 1920’s – but with a sleeker, modern, creative take.”
Laini explained how to get the look: “I first shampooed Amy’s hair with Moroccanoil Extra Volume Shampoo and Conditioner to create a bit of extra body and lift – and prepared a low side part.
“Using a Moroccanoil Professional Series Dryer on low, I used my fingers to separate and dry the hair. I then applied a dime-sized amount of Moroccanoil Treatment from her roots to the ends, to soften the look and make her hair more manageable. It also gave it a beautiful, natural-looking shine”
“Before curling, I gave her hair a light spray of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium, to add a bit of extra body and texture. Working with a 1.25” marcel curling iron, I gave her hair a defined wave low on the part to accent her eyes and cheeks. I curled the rest of the hair from the roots to the ends, taking 1” sections all around. Each wave was held with marcel clips. Using a soft bristle brush, I then brushed out the wave to soften it.”
“I finished the look with a spray of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium for a soft, natural-looking hold that looked effortless and lasted throughout the night.
Celebrity makeup artist Stephen Sollitto created the makeup look for Amy Adams using Votre Vu products, using her dress as inspiration. “I didn’t want to do just a red lip and lighter eyes. We wanted the look to be a little softer, but with a modern twist. Aubergine and Copper are such a beautiful combination, especially with Amy’s eyes and coloring. It was a soft, modern twist on the red lip.”
“Amy’s face was prepped with the Votre Vu Attentive Crème du Jour and her lips with the Luxe Lip Moisture lip balm in the bébé Duette (love this!). For the base, I used Votre Vu’s Love Me Deux in Champagne all over and then dusted Beauté en Bronze in Monaco along her hairline, temples, tip of her nose, and under her cheekbones to give more dimension.”
“Then, on her eyes I used a medium eyeshadow brush and the shade Gilt from the Votre Vu Palette Play eyeshadow quad in Copper (coming out September) and swept it all over the eyelid and a bit along her bottom lashes as well. Next, I rubbed in Votre Vu’s Le Joli Crayon in Aubergine along the outer third corner of her upper lash line and along the whole row of bottom lashes. Instead of lining the bottom waterline, I line just the lashes so that it keeps the eyes looking wide and lively. I finished off her eyes with the Eiffel Power mascara and layered it for thick, voluminous lashes.”
“Next, I applied Vu-On Rouge in Bouqet Rose onto her cheekbones in a tapping motion. I kept tapping the product onto her cheekbones until it was all blended.The lips were the finishing touch! I applied Votre Vu’s French Kiss in Annette (coming out September), a beautiful bright red color, to her lips. She looked absolutely gorgeous on the carpet!”
