At the 2019 Academy Awards, there were multiple faces and looks that stood out. One of them was award-winning actress Emma Stone’s. She made an appearance at the award show in a stunning Louis Vuitton dress in a beef-jerkey like colour. Her makeup was flawless as usual. This time around, the actress skipped her signature bold lip and opted for a darker eyeshadow, to switch things up. Clean and minimal, was her way to go, for this award season.
Stone’s makeup artist Rachel Goodwin who has been doing her makeup for the Academy Awards for the past 6 years now, shared the thought process and method, to achieve this deep yet grungey look. Goodwin was inspired by Emma’s gown and got a futuristic feeling through it because of the dramatic shoulders and diamond-like pattern, which is why she created deep copper eyes for a simple yet graphic look.
To recreate this look use,
A thick waterproof pencil from Phyto-Eye-Twist in shade 11 Copper was used on the lid, crease and lower lash line for Emma.
The shade 1 Topaze was added across the lid to define the edges well and then blended well with a brown waterproof eyeliner.
To give the look more intensity, she added an Ombre eyeshadow in the Amber shade, on the lid.
Since there was no other colour on her face, a basic foundation in your face shade should do the trick.
Pale lip completed Emma’s look. A basic pink lip balm or nudey pink lipstick should do the trick.
One trick that kept Emma looking fresh all night was constant touch-ups of foundation. Goodwin’s hack saved Stone and ensured she looked glamorous till wee hours in the morning! “I give my clients Q-tips dipped in a little foundation and wrapped in tissue to put in their bags, just in case they need to do any touch-ups or if their lipstick moved,” she speaks up about her version of the “magic eraser”.
