oscar looks we loved...amy adams

Arrivals at the 81st Annual Academy Awards, held at Kodak Theatre, Hollywood, California
So the Oscars went off last night and I have to say that I watched to whole thing.

Like from beginning to end.

Yeah...I couldn't believe that I did that either.

There definitely were some hits and misses outfit-wise going on.

Such as...what in the name of excess and unnecessary fabric was Jessica Biel wearing? I mean, really? Someone that young and completely devoid of fat, does not need to be hiding anything behind a cascading wall of satin.

And don't even get me started on her hair.

Anyway...there were some looks that I loved and Amy Adams was one of them.

Here's the entire scoop from her makeup artist for the evening...none other than the Molly Stern (CoverGirl's Celebrity Makeup Artist).

First of all I have to say I was the most excited I have ever been this morning. I couldn't sleep a wink. I was dreaming about Amy's makeup.

I started by prepping the face with Jurlique citrus spray to give the face a healthy lift then I gave Amy a light facial massage with La Mer moisturizing lotion.

Next I based her face with YSL Perfect Touch #2. Then l 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 I 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 I added a touch of NARS Shadow in Ondine on the inside corner of her lid to give the eye a little gold hint. I lined the top and underneath of her eye with Trish McEvoy's Arabian nights definer. To soften the line underneath I added a soft smudge of Suqqu Lavender Shadow in #27. On her lashes I put 1 soft coat of CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Mascara in Black Ruby.

On her lip I 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.

Inspiration. A cross between Talouse Latrec's dancing girls and the watercolor feeling of a Gustav Klimt painting.

The day was amazing. My goal was to make sure that her makeup was saturated but not overdone. I wanted to give her a face without competing with the dress.

I think she looked polished and her makeup was on-point.
