Red hot Emma Stone stole the show with her hilarious presenter skit, stunning Giambattista Valli gown, and flawless hair and makeup. Here, how to get The Help star’s gorgeous look.
“It’s glamorous, sophisticated, and lighthearted—it’s her,” said makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, who created Stone’s pretty in pink look for Oscar night. First, she applied Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup to Stone’s skin, then dabbed Revlon Lip Butter (yes, a lip balm!) in Cotton Candy on her cheeks to give them a pink sheen. She used her fingers to blend a berry gloss onto her lips for a stained effect. To make the star’s green eyes really pop, Goodwin swept a soft pale pink shadow up to the brow bone, traced black liquid liner along her lash line, and applied a strip of false lashes followed by two coats of black mascara. She finished with St. Tropez lluminator in Rose (a shimmery pink highlighter) on Stone’s arms, décolletage, and neck. “I just spread it on like a lotion,” said Goodwin. “It really tied the whole thing together.”
Hairstylist Mara Roszak had the challenge of working around the gigantic red bow on Stone’s gown. Her solution: an updo that was super-sleek in the front with a pretty twist in back. She blow-dried Stone’s hair and smoothed Couture Color Pequi Oil Finishing Polish over the top for extra shine. Then, she pulled all of her hair into a mid-height ponytail and divided it into two sections, which she roped together. Roszak wrapped the twisted tail into a chignon, secured it with bobby pins, and finished with L’Oréal Elnett Extra Strong Hold Hairspray. Stone took one look at the style and “was so happy,” Roszak said. “It’s the best moment—they feel so good when they walk out the door.”
