How AMAZING does Emma Stone look on her Amazing Spider-Man tour? Let’s count the ways (and steal some ideas!)

Emma Stone - The Amazing Spider-Man - Madrid photocall

Okay, I know not all y’all share my girl crush on Emma Stone. I’ve heard more than a few people say they are bothered by her mouth. And her voice.

I say whatever—if you’re AT ALL interested in beauty, you need to pay attention to what she’s been putting forth. In case you haven’t heard, she’s been jet-setting around the world to do press for The Amazing Spider-Man (it’s in theatres July 3rd, BTW). I don’t have any real desire to see it—I’m just happy to sit back and look at all the hair and makeup looks she’s been showing off at the various premieres and press conferences. (That’s my entertainment. Truly.)

It just comes down to this: Emma is by far the most creative celeb in Hollywood right now when in terms of pushing the beauty boundaries (but still looking tasteful and chic). So let’s flick through the pics and see what we can learn from her…

Smoky eyes and straight hair at the London premiere

I really am coming around on the blonde hair. Especially in this style—how come when I had side-bangs, my hair would never sit perfectly sleek like this? Also loving the smoky eye with the bare lip. And she’s doing a Coco Rocha thing with her tongue!

Gothic drama at the Paris premiere

Can you believe this is Emma? It’s a total departure from her usual look, and I APPROVE. For us civilians, the combo of the hair plus the lip plus the eyeshadow is probably too much (unless you’re going to a black tie or something like that), but I think you could take two out of the three and pull this off in real life no problem. PS: Are you seeing how that dark lip that was big at the Met Ball is really going to be a thing? Yep.

Curled-under ends and a caramel lip at the Berlin press conference

So here’s something that looks extremely put-together and polished, yet isn’t at all that hard to DIY at home. When my hair was shorter I used to do this all the time; mainly because I’m not that handy with a curling iron! You just blow-dry as normal, and then take your curler and wrap the ends under. (You could get the same effect with a small-ish round brush too, but I find the curling iron easier.) Notice too the slightly brownish lip—another emerging trend.

Coral lips and a side bun-thing at the Berlin premiere

A coral lip is really my favourite kind of lip. And with this hair (I think it’s a side bun), the effect is sorta 1940s. Look closely though, and you’ll see a 2012 twist on the eyes: shimmery green liner. Oh I love you, Emma.

Flicky eyeliner with a high pony at the Tokyo press conference

Here’s one for when you just want to look cute. Don’t be shy with the liquid liner and really flick it out at the ends for a super-’60s effect. Pair with this voluminous, teased pony placed high at the crown.

Lavender shadow and twisty hair at the Tokyo premiere

Well, this is certainly A Lot Of Eyeshadow. It’s very runway—for real life I would either tone down the colour and go more sheer, or only apply it up to the crease. (Although like I’ve been saying for over a year now, the eyeshadow-up-to-the-brows thing is where it’s at these days.) With her hair off the face, it definitely adds a focal point to the face. Check out the sides of her hair, BTW… it’s got a super-cute twisty-roll action that pulls into the bun at the back.

Pink eyeshadow and tousled hair at the Moscow press conference

Okay, I’m not too enamoured with this choice of eyeshadow, but you know what? It kind of works with that lip because it’s all in the same harmonious colour family. And on the subject of hair, I have no idea what was done here, but I’m guessing you could get that texture with a few spritzes of texturizing spray and some dry shampoo. Easy breezy when you’ve gotta do something but have no time.

Pink shadow and a gold headband at the Moscow premiere

Here we go with that eyeshadow again. Let’s just ignore. Moving on—do you ever wear hair accessories? Like, aside from elastic bands I mean. I don’t, and this pic makes me wonder why not. How much fun is this gold headband thingie?

Bare-faced beauty at the NYC press conference

She looks about 12 here, and it’s a nice palette cleanse from all the other heavily made-up looks, yes? Same hair as in London, but with a much more low-key face. That lip colour is to die for.

Fuchsia lips and a bouncy, high bun at the Seoul premiere

Excuse the bad photo quality, but I had to show you this… there HAD to be a fuchsia lip in here somewhere! It definitely takes this hairdo out of prom land and into something much more sophisticated (yet still playful).

40s hair (with visible bobby pins!) at the Madrid press conference

You don’t have to hide your bobby pins, you know. These ones—in white—are made to be seen, and I love that whoever did her hair made a statement by stacking three across and then adding the fourth on the diagonal. With the sweet dress and pinky lip, it makes for a very retro, feminine look.

And finally, my FAVE…

Bold red lips and and screen siren hair at the Madrid press conference

As someone who feels perpetually NOT put-together, this photo mesmerizes me. I too would like to have hair so perfectly waved, lips so precisely painted, eyes so expertly shadowed. The only nit-pick? Perhaps the brows were overly plucked. But otherwise, this is beauty perfection, n’est-ce pas?

Tell me:

Are you an Emma Stone fan or do you wish I’d shut up about her?
Which one of these Spider-Man looks do you love?
Anything here that inspires you for your own real-life beauty routine?

I LOOOOVE Emma Stone! I didn’t realize there were people that didn’t like her! She always looks amazing in my opinion – yeah I’m not too crazy about the looks with the purple and pink eyeshadow but she somehow manages to pull it off as if she wasn’t even trying. I’m jealous of her flawless skin. I still prefer her as a red head but this blond is growing on me.

Am I making it up, or is her look super tailored to each country she’s in? Not just different for each country, but really like, playing with the style influences of that country. It’s really cool – she has such a versatile face! I really love all of these – there’s not one that I dislike in the least. Also, I think she has naturally puffy/fleshy eyes (I do, also), so it’s cool to see what she does with them.

@Laura – I agree, they ARE sorta tailored to each country! (i.e. the Paris one is very Paris)
I have the same type of eyelids so what she does definitely gives me inspiration. But I’ll be passing on the pink shadow… :)

Her MUA and hair peeps must be having so much fun. Madrid looks are both gorge – nice day-to-night look for the hair.

Emma Stone always looks great! and she is a total chameleon – she wears a lot of different trends really well, but what’s more important to me is that she’s not supermodel-beautiful so she’s a better beauty model for normal peeps like us. I also have to say she looked strikingly different in the Madrid press conference pic but I didn’t realize why until I noticed she hadn’t lined her inner rims with eyeliner then..It makes such a huge difference on her!

I never paid attention to how perfect Emma’s make up is until you brought it up. Love how different she looks every time. She manages to pull it of even with pink eyeshadow. My favorite is the first and last look. Love the lip color in the last, and eye shadow w bare lips in the first. Still prefer her as a redhead though.

I love her style!!! I am in love with the Moscow look with the gold headband and sheer light blue dress, and messy hair. Very pretty without looking costumey! She definitely has great style and knows what does and doesn’t work on her. Even though she plays around with different looks, it still always has the same attitude behind it.

Okay, I didn’t even know who emma was until I started following your blog (I’m not into movies) and at first, I was like, who is she and why does michelle like her so much? But she’s growing on me a lot. She always looks well put together and she’s cute. Now whenever I see her, even at the DS, you come to mind, lol.

Anyway, I like the first look and the headband look the best. I also like the one where she looks 12.

You can’t keep your side bang like her because she has stylists following her around and we don’t. ;-)

Her hair is almost always done by Mara Roszak, who (when not with Emma or doing other freelance work) works at Andy Lecompte :)

I’m thinking about getting side bangs since my tapered bangs grew out and i’m looking for another bangs look now. I looked up styles on Google images and this came up. I’m a brunette (I admit, I wish I was a blonde) and I think this look will go great with my fair skin tone and light freckles on my cheeks!!! thx for the pics! ;)

It’s kind of refreshing to see her in a blonde hair but I think it suits her more since she looks a lot way younger now because of her hair color.
