TIFF 2012: Amy Adams’ Look

Amy Adams was in Toronto on Friday for the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of The Master. She’s a great actress, and we bet she’s a real sweetie too. That Marchesa dress was stunning on her. What do you think?

Celebrity makeup artist, Stephen Sollitto worked with Adams on her fabulously fresh red carpet look, using products from the French beauty brand, Votre Vu.

Sollitto had the actress wash her face with Votre Vu’s Attentive Lait Pour Le Visage and then tone with the Fleur Blanc Tonic. He wanted her skin to be really moisturized, so he applied the Attentive Crème de Jour with a synthetic brush (which won’t absorb the product) in order to apply more moisturizer slowly and carefully.

Using a damp sponge to create a more natural look, Sollitto applied Love Me Deux tinted moisture tint in Limoges all over Amy’s face, and used the concealer portion under her eyes.

“I always add bronzer on every girl I do because I feel like a lot of girls … you add foundation and their whole face is one blank canvas of color, so by adding bronzer there’s more dimension which makes them look more natural.”

To give dimension to Amy’s face, Beaute en Bronze was used. He applied the matte bronze to her temples and swept it up to the hairline. He then lightly contoured her cheekbones and dusted some under the chin and on the tip of the nose. On her cheeks, he applied Vu-On Rouge in Ma Cherry.

Le Joli Crayon in Aubergine was applied along Amy’s lashes and then dragged it out on the edges; Sollitto then swept Chanel’s Spice eye shadow over to feather out the line and soften the lash line. Amy is known for having wide, gorgeous eyes, so to play that up, Eiffel Power Mascara was applied to her upper and lower lashes. To keep Amy’s brows looking defined, yet natural, Arch de Triumphe in Fair was used.

On the lips, Sollitto used the Vu-On Rouge in Ma Cherry again to give her a gorgeous sheer lip. Lastly, he lightly dusted Belle Poudre in Light to set the makeup and decrease shine.

What do you think of Amy Adams’ red carpet look? Hit or miss?
