It's not often we see a dramatic smoky eye on Amy Adams—the Arrival star tends to wear neutral beauty looks on the red carpet. However, the SAG Award-nominated actress turned heads Sunday night in a stunning Brandon Maxwell dress, Tyler Ellis clutch and striking makeup, courtesy of celeb makeup artist Stephen Sollitto.
"I'm usually super light-handed. I like a pretty natural look," said the veteran beauty pro. "We have the same aesthetic—[Amy] likes light makeup, too."
After smoking out the pewter shadow, the makeup artist finished the look with Benefit They're Real! Lengthening and Volumizing Mascara and applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sugar Frost on the inner corners of the eyes.
For the rest of eyes, choose a "lighter shade eye shadow than you think you actually need," he added. "Ring the eye. Line the inner rim and top lash line with black." The result? A stunning smoky look that doesn't resemble raccoon eyes.
