American Hustle was a big winner at last night's Golden Globe awards, winning not only the award for Best motion picture, comedy or musical, but also two additional awards for best actor/actress categories. Leading lady, Amy Adam's graciously accepted the award for Best Actress in a motion picture, comedy or musical and co-star, Jennifer Lawrence took home the win for Best Supporting Actress in a motion picture. Amy looked stunning in a backless red Valentino gown and overall beauty look inspired by the beautiful bronzed face of Lauren Hutton as seen on the cover of the September 1970 issue of Vogue Magazine.
Makeup artist, Stephen Sollitto, created the perfect canvas for Amy's healthy look with Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide which is scheduled to launch later this year. Mirabella's Skin Tint Creme is a comparable foundation to even out skin tone while leaving a natural, satin finish that looks like skin. To mimic the look of sunkissed skin, Sollitto applied Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder along Amy's hairline, into the temples and along the cheekbones finishing with a hint of color on the tip of the nose. Baked makeup products provide intense color and may not be the best option for the novice makeup artist.
Applying bronzer correctly and creating a natural warmth to the skin requires a skillful hand, proper tools and quality products. My top recommendation in the bronzer category is Bronzed Mineral Powder by Mirabella Beauty. Bronzed mineral powder utilizes a new technology in the cosmetic industry called Prismatech. This revolutionary texture combines the best features of cream, fluid and baked products into a long-wear, super soft powder that provides brighter, purer color. Bronzed mineral powder comes in three gorgeous shades: Tawny Warmth (the lightest), Baked Sand (middle) and Burnt Copper (darkest) all of which can be layered without looking flat and heavy on the skin. (Pro tip: all three shades are beautiful on the eyes, especially to warm the crease of a dark smoky eye) To perfect bronzer and eliminate any lines of demarcation, use a clean blending brush or duo-fiber brush to blend until natural looking results are achieved.
Although Amy's makeup artist used a cream blush on the apples of her cheeks, the peach shade in Mirabella Beauty's Glowing blush duo is a neutral brown/peachy shade that can also provide a natural hint of color that blends well with Bronzed mineral powder. A terracotta/bronze shade was used to accentuate Amy's eyes which were then further defined by lining the top lashes with plum caviar stick also by Laura Mercier. This look can be recreated with Woodstock Eye Colour and Prune Eye Definer by Mirabella Beauty. To finish and perfect the look, two lip colors were blended together to create a peachy shade that harmonized but did not perfectly match the bottom of Amy's Valentino Gown.
