It’s no secret I love Emma Stone. In fact I have an Emma folder on my computer! She’s no great beauty, but I find her kind of beauty approachable and relatable. It doesn’t hurt that she’s got a great personality, and, a fabulous team of stylists and makeup artists that help make her look spot-on every time!
For this FMP, I have chosen her Oscar makeup look as inspiration(see my Emma Stone Golden Globe-inspired FMP here). Well, for the love of pink aside, with the holidays fast approaching, this is one look you can definitely pull off. I did a fancier method, but I think a good pink blush could work as a base eye shadow which is the highlight of this look.
For some reason, the camera doesn’t pick up the pink on me too well, but this makeup looks pink in person. And of course, obviously we look nowhere alike, our coloring, face structure etc are different so go easy on the comparison, he-he.
Warning: This is a very picture-heavy post. MY-picture-heavy post. But there’s no way to get around this, so let’s start!
1. Start with a good base, and by that I mean the works—primer, foundation and concealer. Here I used Sephora Base Sublimatrice Primer, followed by NARS Firming Foundation in Santa Fe and Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer. I used a flat top buffing brush to work the foundation in to the skin to ensure an even, flawless finish.
2. For the eyes, I used an ELF Cream Blush in Pink Lemonade as a primer on the lids. And then I applied a wash of light pink shimmery eye shadow from the NARS Heaven duo. You can opt to use a regular primer and a pink blush for this step.
3. To contour, I picked the pink shimmery eye shadow from this In2It palette in Sorbet Deluxe. I wanted a soft focus effect so I had to blend it out a couple of times while building the color (again, if you are using a powder blush, just add some more on the contours). Afterwards, I applied a white matte Etude House eye shadow on the upper lid close to the lash line.
4. The next crucial step, the eyeliner. I used a K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner in Super Black. The trick is to try to draw the line (pen tip sideward!) closest to the lashes first. Then draw the upward flick eyes open and looking straight in to the mirror. Connect the lines and build to your desired thickness.
5. Next, brows and lashes on! I used Avon Perfect Brow Pencil in Dark Brown and MAC Brow Set in Girl Boy. For the lashes, the Eye of Horus Natural Mascara (which I will be reviewing soon, so good!!) in a couple of layers.
6. I powdered the skin with Dr. Oil Finish Pact (because I want to be a bit lighter) and then lightly contoured my cheeks with Sephora Sun Disk. Next, I applied NARS Amour Blush on the apples of the cheeks.
7. Lastly for the lips, since I don’t have an exact match shade, I mixed my L’Oreal Glam Shine lipstick in Sweet Nude with MAC Plumful.
And that’s it, I hope this you find this look pretty, and the steps easy! Have a fun weekend!
