When you see your favorite stars, like Eva Longoria, hitting the Emmys red carpet on Sunday night, there is one man making sure their makeup looks perfect. Napoleon Perdis (and his eponymous cosmetics line) is the official makeup sponsor of the Emmys and will be touching up everyone from the ladies of Desperate Housewives to Debra Messing as they hit the red carpet. We chatted with Napoleon, who says being on the Emmys red carpet is a “dream come true,” on his top three makeup tips for braving the cameras on the big night!

-Use an all-in-one makeup, like Napoleon Perdis Camera Finish, for touching up your makeup. You can use it for concealer, powder, foundation — you won’t have to worry that there are three different colors of makeup on your face! Just remember to build up coverage, instead of putting tons on at once.

-Line lips last, after putting on your lipstick. When you put on liner last, it helps maintain the shape of the lips and keeps the color from bleeding.

-Keep a highlighter, like Napoleon Perdis Light Patrol, with you at all times. You can use it for eyes, lips, cheeks — for an extra hit of brightness on the face wherever you need it.
