She made us laugh in House Bunny, stole our hearts in Crazy, Stupid, Love, and now she is making us green with envy with her red carpet looks. Emma Stone has blossomed into a drop-dead gorgeous woman and has morphed into a fashion icon. No wonder she has men (and women) drooling over her. Why? Because Stone has found the perfect combination of classy, femininity and sex appeal. That is what every woman should strive for, so here are how to get some of Emma Stone’s best makeup looks!
Her goth-inspired look:
- Start with an impeccable canvas. You want your skin to be as flawless as possible. Use your concealer under your eyes and to cover any blemish you find. Follow up with foundation to ensure your makeup will go on effortlessly. Dust with a light mineral powder to set your makeup and give you a matte finish—no one likes shiny skin.
- Stone’s makeup artist used a “barely there” blush on top of her cheekbones. You want to use a shade like, Nars‘ “Madly” blush ($28). Don’t choose a pink-based blush, as that will give you a different look than what you’re going for.
- You want to keep your eye makeup minimal, yet bold. What this means (in Stone’s case), is that you opt for a lot of eyeliner so you use a little eye shadow. You don’t want to apply a ton of eye shadow along with thick eyeliner. Use a light taupe eyeshadow, like MAC’s Satin Taupe ($15)—apply it from your eyelid to just above the crease in your eyelid. Use an eyeliner pencil to draw a thick line right above the tops of your eyelashes; proceed to smudge the eyeliner, so it isn’t as dark and precise. Finish up with lengthening mascara like Dior‘s Diorshow Iconic mascara ($25); don’t apply too much, your eyelashes will look thick and gloppy—unattractive!
- The best part of this entire look is Stone’s deep, burgundy lipstick. Try a shade like Urban Decay‘s “Confession” ($22) to achieve the same look. According to your preference, you may want to swipe a clear gloss over the top of the color, like MAC‘s Clear Lipglass ($14.50), to give it an extra shine; Emma Stone did it, so why can’t you?
Her feminine and flirty look:
- Again, Stone’s skin is clean and flawless, but this time much brighter than her goth look. After using your concealer and foundation to make your skin makeup ready, apply an illuminating powder like Estee Lauder‘s Pure Colour Illuminating Powder Gelee ($42). This will allow your skin tone to perk up a bit like hers does. Apply some blush to your cheekbones; this time you want to pick an uplifting pink shade that has a little bit of shimmer in it—the shimmer will allow light to reflect off your skin, enabling a natural glow. Try Bobbi Brown‘s “Pink Sugar” shimmer blush ($25).
- Stone chose minimal eye makeup for this look because she’s wearing a bright lipstick; remember ladies, never over do it! Use a neutral, but sparkling eye shadow like Stila Cosmetics’ Jewel eye shadow in “Rose Quartz” ($20); the soft pink will brighten up any eye color. Apply all over your lids to just above the crease of your eyelid. Follow up with a precise line of eyeliner above your top eyelashes. Finish your eyes with an application of mascara.
- Emma Stone must love her lipsticks! This look is completed with a pink/orange lip shade. Use a color like MAC‘s “Watch Me Simmer” ($14.50). To correctly mimic this look, you don’t want to pick a lipstick with a matte finish, rather a creamy finish.
Her sexy and sultry look:
- Like all of Stone’s looks (apparently), you want to continue with perfecting your skin by using concealer and foundation. Note that we have yet to tell you to use a bronzer; Stone prefers her natural look. This demonstrates someone who is incredibly comfortable in her own skin; who wouldn’t want to imitate her makeup looks? Like her goth-inspired look, the blush you use shouldn’t be pink; it should have more of an orange base like Vasanti Andes‘ blush ($15). Apply this to a generous portion of your cheek, unlike the tops of your cheekbones like we’ve mentioned in the earlier looks.
- This look focuses on Stone’s eyes as opposed to her lips like we’ve been paying most attention to. Her eyelids have been primed and dusted with a light bone shade like, Bare Minerals‘ eye shadow “Vanilla Sugar” ($14). Next, her eyes were given wings with eye shadow—not eyeliner. If you choose to use eyeliner, the look will be much more defined and bold. Start at the inside corner of your eye, working your way to the outside—choose a charcoal color, like MAC‘s “Carbon” ($15). Once you reach the outside corner, you want to use your eye shadow brush to paint a winged-tip. Once you’ve got your wings even, go back over the top of your eyelid with liquid eyeliner. Draw a thin line from the inside corner to the outside corner. For the first time, we’re going to tell you to also line the inside of your eye. Use either your liquid or pencil eye liner, and trace the line in which your lower lashes create. By adding that bottom line, your eyes will be incredibly accentuated.
- For the first time, you can choose to leave your lips bare. If you feel lost without lipstick, try a nude shade like Chanel‘s Rouge Coco “Plumetis” ($32.50).
Her bronze goddess look:
- Stone takes it up a notch with this makeup look because she has bronzed her delicately pale skin. After using your concealer and foundation, you want to use an illuminating bronzer like Bobbi Brown‘s bronzing powder ($35). This will allow your skin to look a shade or two darker. Don’t choose a bronzer a lot darker than your skin; no matter what you do, it will be obvious that your skin is a much more tan shade than it should be. After applying your bronzer, use a brown-based blush across your cheekbones to accentuate them.
- Her eyes are soft and simple—again, demonstrating that the woman knows how to balance out her looks perfectly. Let’s all take notes ladies! I know we are. All Stone really has on her eyes is a soft line of eyeliner on her top lids, followed by a few coats of lengthening mascara. If you are going to apply more than one coat of mascara—which we’re sure most of you do—be sure the first coat dries before applying another one. Don’t exceed two coats because you’ll start to get clumpy.
- On her lips, she has a soft skin-tone lipstick on like, Clinique‘s Chubby Stick lip balm in “Mighty Mimosa” ($16). Her lipstick has a cream finish, as opposed to matte, so keep that in mind when choosing the right lipstick to imitate her look.
