Get The Look: Michelle Dockery at the 2013 Emmy Awards

65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

 

Michelle Dockery Emmy Awards 2013
Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series Nominee, Downton Abbey
Look by Jordan Long for Laura Mercier

For Dockery’s 2013 Emmys makeup look, makeup artist Jordan Long was inspired by a series of stunning watercolors painted by the artist David Downton in the January 2013 issue of Vanity Fair. In order to complement the classic femininity and clean lines of Dockery’s custom made Prada gown, Long kept her makeup very minimal, focusing on her glowing skin and strong brows.

FACE: Flawless, glowing skin
• Long first prepped the skin with a moisturizer, eye cream and Laura Mercier Lip Balm, ($20).
• Next, Long applied a fine layer of Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation in Soft Ivory, ($45), using a damp sponge. Then she used Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC#1, ($32) to conceal the skin only where needed.
• She then brushed Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander, ($24) on the apples of the cheeks. In order to give Dockery a subtle glow, Long mixed Laura Mercier Secret Brightener, ($30) with the cream blush.
• Next, she applied a light dusting of Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder, ($35), concentrating solely on the t-zone.
• Lastly, Long layered Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander, ($24) on top of the powder, using the Laura Mercier Finishing Brush, ($42).

LIPS: Neutral lips contrasted the star’s bright, red gown
• Long applied Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Bellini, ($24) to Dockery’s naturally pigmented lips.

EYES: Strong brows were the focal point of the eyes
• First, Long blended Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Fresco, ($23) over the entire lid.
• Next, she used the Laura Mercier Eye Crease Travel Brush, ($29) to blend in Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Ballet Pink, ($23) at the center of the lids and into the corner of the eyes, providing a subtle shimmer.
• She then applied Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Blanc, ($23) just under the star’s brows.
• Long smudged Laura Mercier Crème Eye Liner in Espresso, ($22) very tightly to the lashline and followed with three coats of Laura Mercier Waterproof Mascara in Black, ($20) on the upper and lower lashes. She then added a strip of Laura Mercier Center Faux Eyelashes, ($18) to provide a “fluttery pop.”
• To finish the look, Long filled in and slightly extended Dockery’s brows with Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Coffee Ground, ($23) using the Laura Mercier Angled Eye Colour Brush, ($29).

Get The Look: Kerry Washington at the Emmys

Emmys 2013 - Kerry Washington low res

On Scandal, Kerry Washington is known for her tailored white ensembles and hard-boiled demeanor, but at Sunday’s Primetime Emmy Awards, the actress revealed an infinitely more romantic side. Complementing Washington’s blush-colored Marchesa gown was an equally ethereal makeup look by Hourglass. “The inspiration came from the delicate dress,” says makeup artist Carola Gonzalez, who combined velvety matte skin, purple lids and luminous cheeks for a look that was as pretty as the floral embroideries on Washington’s gown. “Although I like a matte finish, especially for awards shows, I added a radiance to her skin with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light. It’s the perfect shade for Kerry.”

Here’s how to replicate the look:

Hourglass - Visionaire Eye Shadow in Exhibition

COMPLEXION: Prime the skin with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, and follow with Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation in warm beige. “I’m really impressed with the airbrushed finish this foundation creates,” says Gonzalez. “And I really don’t need to use powder anymore.” Conceal any imperfections with Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer in honey.

BROWS: Define the brows with Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette.

EYES: Apply the mauve shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Exhibition to the inner corner of the eyes and the lids, and the eggplant shimmer shade to the outer edge of the eye and beneath the bottom lash line. Blend the two shades together. Apply Ardell Natural Lashes in 110, line the eyes with Hourglass Script Precision Liner in Jett, and finish off with three coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.

CHEEKS: Apply Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light on the cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin. Apply Lancôme Blush Subtil in Sparkling Rose to the apples of the cheeks and sweep towards the temples.

LIPS: Prep lips earlier with Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil for superior hydration. Apply Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Truth, a beige rose, for the finishing touch.
