Emma Stone Inspired Makeup

Hello everyone, this post is my latest collaboration with Nicola DaRita (Perfect Peonies) which we have been looking forward to since our last one. The premise for this collaboration was that we both wanted to create Emma Stone inspired looks, we chatted for quite some time about the subtlety and glamour of her staple look. Emma Stone is quite often my style inspiration as well as my makeup inspiration, not long ago I posted an Emma Stone Inspired Wishlist

I chose the look to the left to contrast with Nicola's bronzed look as my skin is much paler and I wanted to create a fresh glowy look. I've always tried to stick with peachy pink tones to add colour to my face rather than browns and bronzes. It's just the easier option and to be honest, I love the Maybelline NY Dream Soft Blush Peach.

To create this look:

After cleansing, moisturising and priming with my usual products I dotted the Rimmel London Wake Me Up foundation around my face and patted it in as I would with concealer, it's brightening and fairly dewy to create Emma's fresh-faced look. I then applied concealer to cover up my little spot breakup around my mouth, I used the Collection Lasting Finish Concealer as it's durable and easy to blend. Before applying the setting powder I applied the Maybelline NY Dream Soft Blush in Peach to the apples of my cheeks, I like to blend it in by softly patting my cheeks. I know, it sounds like a lot of patting but I just find that it's the most effective way of blend mid to light coverage makeup. The setting powder I used was the Matte Maker in Classic Ivory as it balances out the slightly oily look that the other products later take on without something to set it.

As for the eyes, I didn't use eyeliner as I felt that it would make the look too bold and dramatic. Instead I opted to use the Maybelline Colour Tattoo Eyeshadow in Permanent Taupe, I applied it with a thin makeup brush all over my lid and slightly lined halfway under my eyes. Since Emma's look is very metallic, smokey and glamorous I decided to layer it with the Maybelline Color Show Mono Eyeshadow in Copper Fizz, it enhanced my eyes and gave it a slight shimmer. The eye look was very experimental, it turned out really well though so I'm happy. I used the Rimmel London Exaggerate mascara to lengthen my eyelashes and make the look more glamorous.

To create the lip look I used the MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in the shade 'Funk' along with the Collection Lock n Hold Lip Gloss Break in the shade 'Dance', the mixture of the two mimics Emma's look fairly well. 


  1. Great, natural look, I'm loving peachy-pinks at the moment too! #boldandbeautiful


    1. Unfortunately my image ended up looking a little yellow, it looked much fresher in person. The peachy pink shades are fantastic for pale skin but they add a gorgeous other dimension to tanned skin too.

      Thanks for reading!

  2. I love Emma Stone, I love this make up, I love it all! I swear you two have exactly the same noses as well, haha.

    1. Aw! Thank you so much, I'm so flattered about the nose comment. I'm so pleased you loved this post, love.
