The 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Make-Up Review and How To

Last night’s 64th annual Primetime Emmy’s were held in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre, and was hosted by one of my personal favorite late night TV personalities, Jimmy Kimmel.

We saw quite a few strapless and sweetheart gowns this year. Zoe Deschanel, Morena Baccarin, Julianne Hough, and Kat Dennings looked slick and sexy with this style. Kat Dennings rocked a low cut burgundy piece by J. Mendel, and I think she made the right choice by wearing her hair down, in soft locks, and pairing it all with a bold, earth toned red lip.

Color-wise, I’d say the two leading hues of the evening were bright yellow and orange. Padma Lakshmi and Ginnifer Goodwin exemplified this Autumnal trend with two festive but elegant burnt orange dresses. The ladies in yellow were Julianne Moore, Kaley Cuoco, and Claire Daines – who all looked positively radiant.

This makeup How To, however, is inspired by the lovely Lucy Liu – who wore a futuristic Versace gown with bold black eyeliner and stunning cheeks. Her skin was beautiful and light with just a soft hint of freckling around her nose and cheeks. I love freckles as you can either choose to play them up with your makeup (always a personal favorite) or to conceal them using MUD’s Flawless Cream Foundation. The fun thing about having freckles is that you always have this option.

Get the Look!

Face: First, use MUD’s Cream Foundation in your shade to get Lucy’s flawless skin. Apply a medium coverage with MUD’s #940 Foundation Brush. Set the foundation using either a Loose Powder for a matte finish, or a Dual Finish Compact Powder for a more dewy look.

Cheeks: To accentuate your cheek bones with a pop of color, use a blend of Soft Peach Cheek Color and Poppy Cheek Color with your #710 Brush and dust along the cheek bone in circular motions until you reach your desired intensity.

Eyes: Lucy’s look is all about the eyes. To achieve the same effect, use MUD’s Black Cake Liner with our #100 Brush. Apply medium to thick winged out eyeliner starting from the inner corner and working your way outwards. Using MUD’s #810 Smudger Brush and Graphite Eye Color, smoke out the cake liner slightly to soften the effect while maintaining a bold line. Next, use your #800 Blending Brush and softly blend Galaxy Eye Color into the crease. Apply lashes and a load of Cream Mascara.

Lips: Nude is the way to go with this look. Try outlining your lips with Lip Pencil in Natural and fill in with a generous coat of Bare Lip Glaze.
