“It’s more modern and cool not to use shimmer—especially with HD cameras,” said makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, who prepped Emma Stone for the Globes on Sunday. In lieu of sparkle, the face painter contoured the sides of the star’s face with Chanel Les Beiges powder, dusted her apples with Revlon Powder Blush in Oh Baby! Pink, and topped off her cheekbones with Le Jour de Chanel moisturizer. “It gives [the skin] that lush, hydrated quality, but doesn’t look reflective,” she explained. (If you love a good selfie, keep this tip in the bank). Stone’s smoky eyes acted as the “thread” between the bottom of her Chanel dress and her beauty statement. To achieve a more “casual” vibe, Goodwin applied Revlon’s ColorStay Eyeliner in Charcoal as a wash across Stone’s lids and muted it with a taupe powder shadow—pulling the shape out just slightly at the outer corners. To finish, she ran the same pigment along the lower lash lines. As for Stone’s pre-game plans, since she skipped out on the red carpet before presenting an award to Woody Allen: Watch your colleagues endure the long walk in Louboutins on TV and “gasp over Cate Blanchett’s gorgeousness,” revealed Goodwin. Celebs…they’re just like us.
Emma Stone caused a rush on grape-seed oil last year when she revealed that she uses it as a moisturizer. Now, the Revlon spokeswoman, who is “really allergic to a lot of stuff,” has a few more DIY beauty remedies to share. “I exfoliate with baking soda or brown sugar,” says Stone. [Cosmo]
First, they brought us the “caviar manicure,” and now British nail brand Ciaté is introducing the “chalkboard manicure.” Its latest kit comes with a matte black polish and pastel chalky-finish nail-art pens for embellishment. [Fashionista]
Interior designer Olivia Putnam is the latest artist to put her own personal spin on Nina Ricci’s classic L’Air du Temps fragrance flacon. Available in May, Putnam’s rendition features the classic dove-shaped stopper in a shade of royal blue, with the same color running through the grooves of the crystal bottle. [WWD]
Speaking of artful fragrance offerings, this year’s Wear LACMA collection, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s annual range of fashion accessories created by Los Angeles designers and inspired by the museum’s permanent collection, includes a custom fragrance from L’Oeil du Vert perfumer Haley Alexander van Oosten. Inspired by an eighteenth-century bronze relief of The Triumph of Neptune and Europa, by Antonio Montauti, van Oosten’s creation is a sensual, botanical scent called Tonae. [L.A. Times]
The Mission: Give Revlon global brand ambassador Emma Stone a daytime-appropriate, “fresh and playful” makeup look for this weekend’s early afternoon New York premiere of The Croods.
The Face Painter: Chanel celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin.
The Face: After prepping the perimeter of Stone’s skin with Chanel Sublimage Essential Regenerating Fluid to avoid making skin too shiny, Goodwin dabbed Revlon’s Nearly Naked Foundation in Vanilla directly on to the center of her face, fanning it out toward the edges with a Beauty Blender sponge for a diffused effect. To add a subtle, emollient sheer-pink flush, Goodwin blended Revlon’s ColorBurst Lip Butter in Creamsicle across her cheeks.
The Eyes: Building a “softer version of a smoky eye,” Goodwin used warm metallic pigments from Revlon’s ColorStay 16H Eyeshadow Quad in Addictive and the molten-brown color from its Illuminance Crème Shadow Quad in Precious Metals, which she worked in to Stone’s lash line and up through the crease of her eyes. Curling the lashes, Goodwin finished by swiping on two coats of its PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara in Black on both the top and bottom.
The Lips: Using a blend of Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Runway and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Chic, Goodwin layered the nude pigments together for a “soft look” that still provided definition.
The Result: Makeup that was easy like a Sunday morning (spent on the red carpet).
Since her breakout role in 2007′s Superbad, Emma Stone has wound up on a number of lists: best-dressed lists, directors’ dream lists, and the short list for a cosmetics contract, which the blonde-again comedienne turned into pay dirt in 2011 when she signed a deal with Revlon. Despite the fact that she now has access to a laundry list of face-saving products from the beauty behemoth, Stone’s primping mantra remains relatively down-to-earth. “I wear more [makeup] if I’m breaking out, but for the most part, it’s just concealer, a little bit of mascara,” The Amazing Spider-Man star says about her daily routine, which also includes filled-in arches, thanks to the tutelage of longtime makeup artist Rachel Goodwin; “Rach,” as Stone endearingly refers to the celebrity face-painter, taught her the power of a strong brow long ago. “If I had no makeup and I could pick one thing, it would be a brow,” says the 24-year-old, who has a thing for big, retro arches.
Stone has recently become a little more reliant on foundation, however, as she lands her latest role as the face of Revlon’s Nearly Naked makeup. Due out next month, the tinted-moisturizer/medium-coverage-foundation hybrid includes 16 shades of complexion-correcting fluid, all of which melt into the skin with a blend of jojoba oil and green- and black-tea extracts that impart a natural, flawless glow with broad-spectrum SPF 20. “I want to try new products all the time. I’m super slutty about it,” says Stone, who admits she has “intimacy issues” with different beauty products. But she has been loyal to Nearly Naked of late, the product go-to that will become a staple of her oft-discussed wardrobe on the red carpet in 2013. “It’s fun when it feels like a character, when it’s so not you and it’s like you’re being somebody else,” she explains of her most memorable makeup moments, which include the Paris premiere of Spider-Manthis past summer, when she paired one of Frida Giannini’s beaded, dark glamour-inspired Fall 2012 Gucci gowns with side-sweeping Veronica Lake waves and a glossy mulberry mouth—a personal style highlight. “We were all excited about [that one],” she says, referring to “the trio effect” of Goodwin, stylist Petra Flannery, and hairstylist Mara Roszak.
The triple threat will soon be in full effect as Emma preps for the release of next year’s Gangster Squad, which will reunite her with her Crazy, Stupid, Love costar Ryan Gosling. (“I’m just trying to monopolize the Gosling,” she jokes of her script choices.) While the film includes a series of stunning forties- and fifties-era beauty looks, Stone is not sure what that press junket will hold for her makeupwise, aside from that trusty bottle of foundation—and lots of Lanvin. When it comes to her fashion favorites, it’s “Lanvin, end of story. It’s what really made me understand fashion,” she recalls. “I tried on a dress by [Alber Elbaz] for the first time at the BAFTAs, and I completely understood the art of it and the creation of it—and I’ve been fortunate enough to get to wear [his clothes] since then,” she says of her Met Ball date. Lucky girl.
She’s responsible for Natalie Portman’s recent blond transformation—and the rich red that skyrocketed Emma Stone to fame (and has since become the “most-requested” hair color in Hollywood), not to mention Drew Barrymore’s post-baby brunette and Lily Aldridge’s coveted ombré. So it was only a matter of time before Redken creative consultant for color, Tracey Cunningham—together with partner Neil Weisberg—opened her own salon. “It was just time,” Cunningham confirmed of her Beverly Hills atelier, Mèche, speaking exclusively with Style.com. “Neil and I’ve been friends forever and we’ve worked together also, so opening a salon seemed like a logical decision,” she continued, noting the desire to create a great work environment while building out her own team. Located a bit off the beaten path in the iconic former Ménage à Trois Coiffeurs space, the outpost will staff 20 different stylists operating 22 chairs, which are set amid the building’s natural elements and reclaimed materials.
Conversation quickly turned to awards season, which will prove a busy time for Cunningham and her brand-new venture. Apart from the ombré trend, which she feels is as strong as ever (“I’ll tell you why ombré’s so cool: Because at least it’s something different”), the petite brunette is ready to see a battle of the blondes. “Wintertime is normally when people go darker, but I’m seeing the opposite this year, people going lighter. I don’t know if it’s because of the ‘end of the world,’ but everyone wants to go lighter,” she joked of the rumored apocalypse on 12/21/12, giving her favorite blonde honors to Burberry model and Cunningham client Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, whose color required two applications and rinses for a “super beach-y” look. As for her personal prep work for the bevy of red carpet moments coming up next month, Cunningham admits that she has been busy sourcing runway shots for inspiration but isn’t stressing it too much. “I’m not so worried about people’s hair colors, but I’d like to see better hair styles,” she says. Here’s hoping Odile Gilbert and Guido Palau can make it out to L.A. for the Oscars.
