Since her big screen debut in the 2007 comedy Superbad, actress Emma Stone has been evolving and showcasing her talents at every turn. She’s equally good in comedic and dramatic roles, entertains during late night interviews, and bewilders the fashion world with her flawless skin and makeup. With so many notable appearances on the red carpet, many are keen to learn Emma Stone’s makeup techniques. Fortunately, her makeup artist is on hand to share a few beauty secrets, and even an Emma Stone makeup tutorial.

Inside Information

Celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin is a seasoned professional, with other notable clients including actress January Jones. She’s services Stone and other clients before they hit the red carpet, and has a procedure all her own when select makeup products:

  1. The Skin and Face—More than anything, Emma Stone’s flawless skin is envied by many. On that, Goodwin enjoys using Perfection Lumière Velvet foundation with a wet Beauty Blender sponge dipped in a bit of Diptyque’s Facial Water. This gives Stone’s skin the right base to apply whatever powders she desires.

In regards to skincare, Goodwin is a pro. After applying moisturizer to it, often using a Chanel serum, Goodwin adds an anti-shine balm, like the Revlon Photoready Prime. She then adds layers of makeup, namely the Chanel Perfection Lumiere, followed by Chanel Powder Blush—Goodwin notes that this accents Stone’s cheekbones and reduces light reflection on the face. Often a little hydrating water is used at the end as a finish to this long procedure.

  1. Lips—Though Stone is a natural blonde, she’s often seen in red hair. Her lip color needs some serious consideration. Again, Revlon products factor in, such as the Ultra HD lipstick, or a Chanel Precision Lip Definer.
  1. Eyes—Stone’s eyes are naturally bluish-green, and Goodwin uses the Chanel Limited Quadra eye shadow and eyeliner pencils by the same brand to add the proper definition so Stone’s eyes stand out. Added to this is some mascara to the lashes, often Revlon Photoready 3D, as it doesn’t smudge in any situation Stone might be in.

A Few for the Road

With Rachel Goodwin’s insider information, it probably doesn’t hurt to know what Stone carries in her makeup bag. For skin, she regularly carries Sunscreen—EltaMD UV Shield SPF 45, some Pasolivo Olive Oil, Revlon Makeup Justin Bitten Kissable Balm Stain and Burt’s Beeswax lip balm. To keep fit and healthy as part of her diet, Stone enjoys mixing up smoothies with a Vitamix.
