Emma Stone was even more jaw-droppingly stunning than usual at the premiere of her new movie, Gangster Squad, thanks to the bold, beautiful combination of her cherry red Lanvin dress and jewel-toned emerald green eyes.“Her dress and necklace channeled the early ’80s, when women were okay with lots of jewelry and makeup," says makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, who created the look. "I played with jewel tones on her eyes and lips, and kept the skin looking dewy for a look that reminds me of that time, but with a modern twist." Goodwin gave us her tips on how to put together Stone's makeup on your own.
Step 1: Apply a lightweight foundation, like Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, to cover any flaws. Then use a bit of bronzing gel, like Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed, on your cheeks instead of blush for a soft, sheer hint of color.
Step 2: Press dark brown eyeliner into your upper lashes as a base. Try:L’Oréal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Color Truth Eyeliner in Brown.
Step 3: Use a damp small shadow brush to apply emerald green shadow to your top and bottom lash lines. Once it dries, go over the same area with the same shadow using a dry brush to soften and smudge out the line. Try: Revlon PhotoReady Primer, Shadow + Sparkle in Pop Art.
Step 4: Curl your lashes and coat them with a black mascara, like Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara.
Step 5: Instead of a nude lip, which is a bit expected with colorful eyes, skip liner and try a sheer red lip stain with a hint of shine. Try:YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain.
