Emmys: Christina Hendricks and Zooey Deschanel!

At Sunday’s Primetime Emmy Awards, nominees Zooey Deschanel and Christina Hendricks both looked stunning in makeup by Hourglass Cosmetics.

Below is how to replicate the looks:

Zooey Deschanel

New Girl star Zooey Deschanel, nominated in the Lead Comedy Actress category, can be counted on to wow on the red carpet. “She’s a risk-taker who follows her instincts,” says makeup artist Jorjee Douglass, who created a beautiful makeup look to offset her striking blue Reem Acra dress, and her glossy raven locks.

Complexion: Jorjee began by priming the skin with Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, and followed with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory. Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer was utilized in two different shades – Fair and Pearl. She finished the skin with Hourglass Oxygen Mineral Powder in #1.

Cheeks: She applied Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush, topped with Dior’s Rosy Glow in 001 petal.

Eyes: She started with the light shimmer shade of Hourglass Vol. 6 Eye Palette across the whole lid, then contoured the crease of the eye with the brown and black colors; and finally, blended the whole lid with the pink. She then shimmered the entire lid with Beauty is Life Everest.

She framed the eyes using Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner in Ebony and Hourglass Script Precision Liquid Liner. She lined the top in a cat shape bringing it out past the lid and the lashes. Lining under the eyes, she went from the middle of the eye and straight out –making it a princess version of Cleopatra’s eye. She finished the eyes with false lashes and Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer.

Lips: Jorjee completed the look with Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Ballet.

Christina Hendricks

With her creamy skin, Titian hair and killer curves, Christina Hendricks always sizzles on the red carpet. For the Emmys, makeup artist Vanessa Scali gave theMad Men star a gorgeous look to complement the old Hollywood feel of her Christian Siriano gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. I was inspired by the soft, feminine look of the dress and its cool, shimmery neutral color against her skin. I kept her face soft and romantic, but added contrast and strength with a bold lip color.” Hendricks, nominated in the Supporting Drama Actress category this year, looked stunning.

Complexion: Vanessa began by using Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum. She loves this primer serum as it delivers penetrating moisture and leaves the skin feeling beautiful and clean. She then applied Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Shell – the formula is effortless to apply and made her skin look natural and flawless. Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer was applied wherever necessary.

 

Cheeks: Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush was applied to the apples of the cheeks blending outward to the cheekbones.

Celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff  created Leslie Mann’s look for the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards using products from Lancôme.

Teal eyeliner is the defining feature of the look, along with loads of black mascara and coppery shimmer on the lid.

Extend Your Summer Glow with Anastasia Beverly Hills!

I would show you the before photo but my camera refused to capture that look! 

 

I lucked out with an end of summer cold, besides the sniffles I was starting to look like I live under a rock.  I had a last minute invite to girls night I couldn’t pass up. Dinner and cocktails heal all right? My only worry was  how I was going to hide the look of a nasty head cold. Enter a beautiful gift that arrived in the mail from Anastasia Beverly Hills.

I started with the Highlighting Crème Duo, I love how light it is and how it instantly brightened my face. I have to say the blush shade was a little on the light side but I loved the creamy texture. Then to add a little color I swept the Ilummin8 Bronzer on my T zone and under my cheek bones. Low and behold I was starting to look like a real live girl!

The piece de resistance was the HydraFull Gloss. At first glance I thought the color was pretty but it was just another gloss. Well that must have been the Nyquil talking this stuff is AMAZING! The color wasgreat but the real benefit of this gloss is how amazing it feels on my lips. My lips get so dry in the summer with the sun, wind and outdoor activities and a lot of my glosses seem to only make it worse. Within minutes of applying HydraFull Gloss my lips felt smoother and really hydrated. I noticed hours later my lips still felt soft even after the gloss had faded. I am really excited about this gloss if you know me prepare for me to hold you down if need be to make you try it!
