Emmys Beauty: The Best and the Boldest
MOST ENVIABLE COMPLEXION: KERRY
The World’s Best Dressed Woman might also have the world’s best skin. Makeup artist Carola Gonzalez says the inspiration for Washington’s velvety complexion and glowy cheeks came from her romantic Marchesa gown. Products Used: Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer and Liquid Powder Foundation in warm beige, Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer in honey, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in “Radiant Light” on cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY A CURLING IRON: ALLISON
We’d give our firstborn for this hair. (Kidding. Mostly.) Dove celeb stylist Mark Townsend explains that after seeing Williams’s simple strapless Ralph Lauren gown, they decided on a down do – and we’d say they made the right call since we’ll be daydreaming about her center-parted waves all week. Products Used: Dove Whipped Cream mousse, Oribe Après Beach Spray, Sally Hershberger Glam Waves, Dove Extra Hold hair spray.
THE BROWS TO BEAT: EMILIA
Breaking Bad’s Anna Gunn may have bested Clarke in the category of supporting actress in a drama, but not a single star comes close to having arches as killer as these. We bet even Cara Delevingne’s envious.
BEST OXBLOOD LIP: SARAH
Hyland doubled down on dramatic color, wearing the two hot shades of fall, forest green (on her gown) and oxblood red (on her pout), managing to look classy, not Christmas-y.
PRETTIEST GLOW: KATE
Forget golden statues; we’re more interested in getting Mara’s golden glow. Makeup artist Coleen Campbell-Olwell shares that they wanted to “keep everything really warm” and did so by highlighting Mara’s cheekbones and cupid’s bow, then applying bronzer just below her cheekbones to contour her face. Products Used: Orlane Highlight Care Brush, Orlane Bronzer.
BOLDEST SHADOW: LENA
All adventurous women do … experiment with look-at-me eye shadow. And Dunham’s no exception. Her makeup artist, Jo Strettell for Marc Jacobs Beauty, lined the inner corners of her eyes with an emerald pencil then smudged out the lines with a matching shadow, the same shade as her floral dress. Products Used: Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Crayon in Intro(vert), Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No. 7 Plush Shadow in The Vamp.
HIGHEST HAIR: VERA
If we’re talking about pure elevation, no one can touch Farmiga’s pompadour. Though, of course, that’s only the case because Miley Cyrus and her mane didn’t attend the Emmys.
