Planet Beach Body Contour Oil


I have been quite a fan of Planet Beach and the brand itself. So, when I was offered the opportunity to review a Planet Beach beauty product, I was quite stoked when I discovered the Body Contour Oil. So, what did I think?


 
PROS


Not only does this product work to moisturize the skin, the hydration is incredibly and as a result, is long-lasting. If you have dry skin, you will not only love this product, but appreciate it much more so.
 


This product works to tighten the skin naturally. Not only does it increase cell turnover, but your skin's circulation too. It also works to tone the skin, as well.
 

If you have itchy skin, you will appreciate this product for it's amazing ingredients and strong ability to relieve virtually any type of skin aliment such as eczema, psoriasis, and even acute dry skin.
 
The scent of this product is amazing. Nothing is more of a turnoff than a horrible scent. You can have the best product in the world, but if it smells bad, it definitely not the product. You can smell all of the natural ingredients in this product, which I absolutely love.

 
CONS

 
Some of the ingredients include: Camellia Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Kukui Oil, and Lime Oil. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, it is very important to refrain from using this product.
 
Like most body care products, the results are not instantaneous. You need to use this product for weeks before you start to see results.
 
Although the results are evident when used alone, they are not huge let alone dramatic unless used in conjuction with heat or some sort of thermogenic type of medium.
 
If your skin is very oily, you may not benefit from this product because it is an oil based product.

 
The Body Contour Oil by Planet Beach is available at the Planet Beach Shop for $26. Would I use this product again? Yes. Would I recommend this product to a friend? Absolutely. For more information about this amazing Planet Beach addition, simply click here right now.

Just voted for Trump in Idaho

As an Iranian American, I can admit that I live in one of the best, if not the best country in the world. And as I love my life, I embrace my liberty and pursue only happiness. After all, the United States is the land of the free and the home of the brave.

As you can see from my ballot (which I have the right to take, as I live in Idaho where it is legal) today, I just voted for Donald J. Trump for president of the United States with Michael R. Pence as Vice President.

Remember every vote counts. I have always identified with the "Independent" party in terms of political affiliation; however, I decided to go with who I thought would be a better choice for president of this country. And as much as I would love for a woman to be president, I cannot support Hillary Clinton or Jill Stein.

As a five-time Grammy award winner, Shania Twain is clearly the Queen of Country pop music. As a pioneer of the country crossover genre, Twain is one of the greatest artists ever in music. Selling over 75 million albums world-wide, her album "Come On Over" sold over 15 million copies alone making it the #1 album by any female country artist ever and the best-selling album by any female artist.

I have been a fan of Shania Twain since a child. Her music is very inspiring and uplifting and really brings something new and unique to music. Without Shania Twain, many artists such as Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood would have never had the opportunity to showcase their talent to the world.

Announced today by CMT, Shania Twain will be honored. She will be the first female artist in history to receive the prestigious "Artist of a Lifetime" award. Previous winners of this award include Kenny Rodgers and Merle Haggard who were awarded in 2014 and 2015.

Taped live at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the 7th annual “CMT Artists of the Year” will feature once-in-a-lifetime performances, unexpected tributes and unforgettable toasts as the biggest stars of music, film and television gather to celebrate the five artists selected by Country Music Television as the best artists of 2016.

CMT Artists of the Year will premiere Thursday, October 20, 2016. For more information visit CMT today. #CMTAOTY

Get the makeup look: Emily Blunt at The Girl on the Train NYC premiere

Emily Blunt looked amazing in her emerald green Prada dress for the New York City premiere of her latest film The Girl on the Train. The British beauty stunned the red carpet in an effortless hair style courtesy of Ashley Streicher. As her hair really brought the entire look together, her makeup really complemented her style. Courtesy of Jenn Streicher, the stunning starlet was treated to a bold, modern and edgy makeup look.

“The Girl on the Train.” Streicher shared, “I wanted to highlight Emily’s flawless skin and give her a unique lip color that you never see on the red carpet,” she continued.

So, is it possible to recreate this makeup look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, the celebrity makeup artist prepped the British beauty's skin. She used the Sisley Paris Black Rose Precious Face Oil. As she continued with the preparation process, she applied the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Hydrating where she massaged the product into Blunt's skin. To complete the prep, Streicher applied the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance on Blunt's cheekbones to give them a subtle sheen.

As Streicher continued with the makeup look, she applied the Laura Mercier Silk Crème Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation in Ivory all over Blunt's face. Then, she set the foundation with the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. “If you have gorgeous skin like Emily’s, you can make anything look good,” Streicher shared.

To achieve a rosy flush on Blunt's cheeks, the celebrity makeup artist dotted the Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Rosebud onto the apples of Blunt's cheeks and blended outwards with her fingers. Then, she brushed the Laura Mercier Candleglow Concealer and Highlighter directly above Blunt's cheekbones and under her eyes to add a natural highlight to her face.


As she continued, the celebrity makeup artist applied the Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Wheat and layered the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Rosegold on top to give her lids a hint of sparkle. Adding drama to the eye, Streicher lined Blunt's top lid with Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony. Then, she finished the stunning starlet's eyes with several coats of Laura Mercier Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara in Black Onyx.

Streicher began by brushing Blunt's brows out with the Laura Mercier Brow Dimension Fiber Infused Colour Gel in Brunette. “I love using the colored gel because it can help to darken the ends of the brows where they tend to get a little bit light,” Streicher shared. Then, she finished Blunt's brows by coloring them in with the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil.

To finish the entire makeup look, Streicher layered the Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in French Kiss and Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Boudoir. To blend the two colors, she used the Laura Mercier Lip Colour Brush. “Emily’s entire look was based around the lip color,” Streicher shared.

Congratulations! You have just recreated Emily Blunt's makeup look for The Girl on the Train NYC premiere.

Emily Blunt always stuns the red carpet and this evening is no exception. The British beauty looked amazing in a green Prada dress. As her makeup really shined and complemented the look, her hair really brought the entire look together. Courtesy of Ashley Streicher for StriVectin HAIR, the stunning starlet was treated to an outstanding hair look to complement her custom dress.

"Emily is wearing a custom Prada dress tonight. Because it’s quite classic, Jenn [makeup] and I definitely wanted to modernize her look a bit with hair and makeup, wearing her cute new bob down," Streicher shared.

So, is it possible to recreate this hair look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, Streicher prepped Blunt's hair using the StriVectin HAIR Color Care Shampoo and the StriVectin HAIR Color Care Conditioner. Then, she sprayed the StriVectin HAIR Color Care Vibrancy Booster.

Once the hair was clean, the celebrity stylist applied a few pumps of the StriVectin HAIR Ultimate Restore Densifying Foaming Treatment directly to Blunt's roots. Then, she applied the StriVectin HAIR Max Volume Bodifying Radiance Serum through the ends of her hair before combing through the hair.


Taking a small-to-medium round brush, Streicher began to blowout Blunt's hair. Not for volume, but more so for texture. Once the hair was fully dry, Streicher created a strong side part using a rat tail comb. Then, she used a dry textured spray at the roots only and avoided the ends of the hair.

As she continued, Streicher chose random pieces of Blunt's hair. Then, she went over the hair wave with a flat iron. Taking pieces of the hair, the celebrity stylist tucked pieces of hair behind the stunning starlet's ears. She, then, kept waves from her face with setting clips until Blunt walked out the door.

To finish the look, she sprayed a strong-hold hairspray.

Congratulations! You have recreated Emily Blunt's hair look for 'The Girl on the Train' New York City premiere.

September 2016: Beauty Favorites

The TYME Iron, one of my favorite
beauty products for the month
of September.
September was a month to remind us that Fall is here and before you know it Winter will soon be here. As we say goodbye to Summer and fly into Fall, where we can appreciate the colorful leaves that fall from the trees and the strong scents of pumpkin, cinnamon and cedar manifesting through the air, October is a month to look forward to for many reasons. But the question remains - what about September? During the ninth month of the year, I have discovered quite a few beauty essentials that I truly love. So, what are they? What are my beauty favorites for the month?

My first favorite for the month is definitely the Cle de Peau Beaute Radiant Multi-Repair Oil. The moment put this oil on my face, I just knew it was magic. Made with precious botanicals such as peony and rare orchid, this is the perfect multi-use product. Not only is it amazing for your face, it is great for your entire body and your hair too. Plus, it works amazingly to protect, correct and even prevent your skin from getting exposed to various DNA and environmental stressors. I have tried an array of face oils and this one is my favorite right now.

If you know me, you know how much I love and appreciate Giorgio Armani Beauty's Armani Prima line. One of my beauty favorites right now is definitely the Armani Prima Glow-On Moisturizing Balm. Not only does this product provide your skin with instantaneous hydration, but the hydration it provides is long-lasting. I suffer from combination skin which tends to lean towards dry in the Fall and Winter months. This is the perfect essential for anyone with dry skin or has the same skin type as me where it leans towards dry during the colder climates. Also, after using this product for two weeks I noticed a lot of natural changes.

I love trying an array of face washes. With my combination skin, I believe trying different types wakes up my skin and keeps it looking and feeling its best. And even though I have quite a few favorite cleansers, right now I am relatively obsessed with the Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser. This warming gel really works to remove impurities such as dirt and oil without drying out the skin. It also works to refine the texture of your skin without destroying your skin's natural acid mantle and pH balance. I have oily skin in the Spring and Summer months and dry skin in the Fall and Winter months and this face cleanser works all year round.

Face masks are definitely important and one of my favorite things to incorporate into my skincare regimen. Recently, I have been fascinated with the VBeaute Deep Sheet Purifying Charcoal Mask. I love this mask because it makes my face feel and look amazing. Not only does it hydrate, it purifies your skin and tightens it. Great for every skin type, this mask is one to really value because it delivers true results. I have tried so many masks including sheet masks and right now this one of my favorite.

As much as I love and appreciate the entire L'ANZA Keratin Healing Oil Collection, I must say that I am obsessed with the L'ANZA Healing Hair Treatment most of all. As we fly into Fall, our hair changes naturally due to the climate and the environment in which we live. This product works incredibly to protect your hair, treat it effectively and efficient and prevent it from caving into any type of problematic hair issue which will affect it later. There is so much that needs to be said about a product that can take on your hair and prevent it from being exposed to harsh pollution and other forms DNA damage.

I have learned to love and value an array of styling tools including flat irons, curling irons, etc. Recently, I discovered the TYME Iron. Featuring 400 degree gold-plated titanium plates and a rotating swivel cord, this is one of the only few high-tech hair devices that will both straighten and curl your hair. Plus, it is gorgeous and offers a 1-year warranty. As much as I love certain hair straighteners and irons, right now I am truly loving this one most of all.

Motives Cosmetics by Loren Ridinger is one of the most underrated beauty brands in the world today. And just recently, I discovered the Motives Lip Candies. Not only do this deliciously daring lip glosses provide your lips with haute hydration and cute color, but they smell and taste amazing. With everything from Cotton Candy and Rock Candy to Milk Chocolate and Butterscotch they are fun for every age and favorite for the month.

Get the look: Kate Hudson at the Deepwater Horizon premiere


Kate Hudson really embraced a red hot style last night for the premiere of her new movie Deepwater Horizon. The beautiful starlet stunned the red carpet in a tomato red romper accentuated with a matching throw jacket. As Hudson epitomized a true siren style, the Deepwater Horizon hottie was treated to a makeup and hair look to complement her entire style by celebrity makeup artist Debra Ferullo and celebrity stylist David Babaii.

"I was inspired to create a soft eye as the main focus to complement dewy skin, soft lips and Kate's amazing lashes," Ferullo shared about the inspiration behind the makeup look.

"Kate's look tonight is super chic and cool. I wanted to give her a rock-n-roll vibe and opted for a very textured look with a bold center part. It is so hot here in New Orleans so the products were key here to beat the Humidity," Babaii said about the hair look.

So, is it possible to recreate Hudson's hair and makeup? Absolutely.

Makeup

For Hudson's gorgeous glow, Ferullo used the Physicians Formula #instaReady Beauty Balm BB Cream SPF 30 in the shade Light/Medium. This product was initially used to prep the skin. As the celebrity makeup artist continued, she applied the Physicians Formula #instaReady Contour Trio SPF 30 BB Stick in Bronze onto Hudson's forehead and the hallow of her cheeks. Then, she applied the Physicians Formula #instaReady Contour Trio SPF 30 BB Stick in Blush to the apple of the actress's cheeks. To complete the face, Ferullo used the Physicians Formula #instaReady Filter Trio BB Powder SPF 30 to set the entire face.

As Ferullo continued, she applied the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Extreme Shimmer Shadow & Liner in Copper Nude. The celebrity makeup artist added a subtle swipe of the cream shade on Hudson's lid. On the bottom lash line, Ferullo used the brown shimmer shade. "Kate has incredible lashes," she added. "I wanted to make them stand out as the focus of her look."

To complete the entire makeup look, the celebrity makeup artist created her own custom shade of lipstick for the Deepwater Horizon hottie using a Kryolan lip palette. She mixed a few bronzed colors together to perfect a bronzy gold lip color that sparkled.

Hair

First and foremost, you are going to want to prep the hair. For this look, Babaii used the Kerastase Paris Bain Chronologiste followed by the Kerastase Paris Creme Chronologiste. On Hudson's wet hair, the celebrity stylist applied the Kerastase Paris L'incroyable Blowdry Lotion all over. Not only does this product fight frizz, but smoothes the hair and ensures the hair is protected.

As the celebrity stylist continued, he rough dried Hudson's hair. Once her hair was dry, he parted the hair down the middle and started misting the Kerastase Paris Elixr Ultime Bi-Phase Spray Oil all over.

Once Babaii did this, he started to create little bends throughout Hudson's hair using a 1" curling iron. He wanted Hudson's hair to take on a very texturized look that was undone and natural. Babaii's goal was to wave Hudson's hair in different directions.

Then, he ran his hands through the waves of her hair to break them up. Taking the Kerastase Paris Elixr Ultime Bi-Phase Spray Oil, the celebrity stylist sprayed this onto Hudson's hair again. Babaii added that he loves this oil because it is lightweight and doesn't leave your hair looking or feeling greasy.

To finish the entire hair look, Babaii sprayed the Kerastase Paris Laque Dentelle on a toothbrush and brushed away any flyways the Deepwater Horizon hottie had.

Deepwater Horizon will be coming to a theater near you Friday, September 30, 2016. Congratulations! You have just recreated Kate Hudson's makeup and hair look for the premiere of her new movie Deepwater Horizon.

Primetime Emmy Awards.

What I love about Emily Ratajkowski goes beyond her sultry looks and edgy style. In fact, the free-spirited beauty looked absolutely flawless this evening at the 2016 Emmy Awards. Channeling Farah Pahlavi in more ways than one, the stunning model and up-and-coming actress blew up the red carpet in a fashionably fleek blue dress. And although she looked elegant, what really stood out was her makeup. Courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Hung Vanngo who used LORAC Cosmetics to create her magical look. 

"I wanted to do something that would let her natural beauty and confidence shine through," Vanngo shared. "I took inspiration from her dress and did an eye focus in the same family of blues. To keep it modern, I left the rest of the makeup soft and subtle."
So, is it possible to recreate this makeup look at home? 
First and foremost, Vanngo applied the LORAC POREfection Mattifying Face Primer. Then, he applied the LORAC Sheer POREfection Foundation in PS7. As he continued with the face, he applied the LORAC POREfection Concealer in PC5 before setting the entire face with the LORAC POREfection Baked Perfecting Powder in PF6. 
Moving onto the cheeks, the celebrity makeup artist applied the LORAC Color Source Buildable Blush in Chroma just before applying the LORAC TANtalizer Highlighter & Matte Bronzer Duo. This color combination creates a beautiful healthy glow that is as striking as the woman who wears it. 
This is where the excitement begins. Vanngo started with the eyes by applying the LORAC Behind the Scenes Eyeshadow Primer on the eyes. He, then, lined the Blurred Lines beauty's eyes with the LORAC Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencil in Navy and the LORAC Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencil in Aqua. 
Taking shades to complement Ratajkowski's dress, Vanngo applied various shades from both the LORAC PRO Palette 2 and the LORAC PRO Palette 3. He finished the eyes with several coats of the LORAC PRO Lash Pomade Mascara.
For the brows, the celebrity makeup artist used the LORAC PRO Brow Pencil in Brunette.

Primetime Emmy Awards.

 Kirsten Dunst looked very elegant tonight at the Emmy Awards, in a very soft yet seductive black dress. And although her hair really complemented her style, what really brought the entire look together was her makeup. Dunst teamed up with celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff who found inspiration from Uma Thurman's character from the film Henry and June, based in the 1930's. 

So, is it possible to recreate this look at home? Absolutely.  
 
Dubroff started by prepping Dunst's skin. She applied the Sisley Paris Flower Express Gel Mask for a few minutes. Then, after removing the mask she applied the Sisley Paris Hydra-Global Intense Anti-Aging Hydration along the perimeter of the face. As she continued, she applied the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer throughout the center of the face just before smoothing Dunst's lips with the Sisley Paris Phyto Lip Twist Balm. 
As the celebrity makeup artist continued, she applied the Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation in Vanille followed by the Laura Mercier Candleglow Concealer and Highlighter. To finish the face, she used the Laura Mercier Creme Cheek Colour in Rosebud as this creates a much needed flush of color.
The eyes really stand out in this look. For the eyes, Dubroff moistened a flat eye shadow brush with the Sisley Paris Floral Mist Spray. She mixed the Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Mahogany Brown and the Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Charcoal Grey to create the perfect cool brown, mushroom-like shade. 
After applying the unique shade to Dunst's eyes, she topped the beautiful starlet's upper and lower eyelids with the Laura Mercier Brow Powder Duo in Deep Blonde. "I believe brow powders can serve as great eye shadows," Dubroff shared. 
Dubroff started curling Dunst lashes using the Surratt Beauty Lash Curler. She, then, applied several coats of the Surratt Beauty Pointilliste Mascara in Noir from the base to the middle of her lashes. Then, she lightly filled Dunst's brows with the Zoe Van Jones Brow Shadow Duo in Sandy.
As the celebrity makeup artist continued to embrace the 1930's theme, she applied the Laura Mercier Sheer Lip Colour in Tender Lips. Pressing the product in with her fingers, Dubroff repeated the process before going in with the Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Plumberry to emphasize the cupid's bow.
Congratulations! You have just recreated Kirsten Dunst's makeup look at the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. #Emmys

annual Primetime Emmy
Awards.

Hannah Murray looked innocently beautiful in a romantic pale blue Philosophy dress which was long and featured a backless design. The glamorous Games of Throne star's hair was left natural; however, her makeup slayed and really brought the entire look together. With a hint of modern edge, Murray teamed up with celebrity makeup artist Sabrina Bedrani for an incredible makeup look that really played on her Philosophy dress.
"Hannah is wearing a very romantic pale blue dress. With her hair up, I wanted to keep her look young and modern instead of looking too romantic so I decided to give her a bit of an edge by lining only the bottom of her eyes in vibrant blue," Bedrani shared. "The emphasis of this look is in her eyes."
So, is it possible to recreate this makeup look at home?
First and foremost, the celebrity makeup artist prepped the beautiful star's face with the Dior Capture Totale Le Serum followed by the Dior Capture Totale Multi-Perfection Creme in Light (Texture). Then, Bedrani applied the Dior Pore Minimizer. 
As Bedrani continued, she used the Diorskin Forever Foundation in the shade Light Beige (20) followed by the Diorskin Star Concealer in the shade Beige (002). To finish the face, the celebrity makeup artist used the new Diorblush Light & Contour Sculpting Stick Duo in Soft Contour (or shade 001). 
This look features a strong emphasis on the eyes. For the eyes, Bedrani used the Dior Backstage Eye Primer. Then, she lined the gorgeous Games of Thrones star's eyes with the Dior Eyeliner (Waterproof) in the shade Trinidad Black (094). As she continued, she used the Dior 5-Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Carre Bleu (276). To complete the eyes, she applied the Diorshow Maximizer 3D followed by several coats of the Diorshow Mascara in Pro Black (090). 
To finish the entire look, Bedrani used the new Dior Contour Lipliner in Grege (169). Then, she applied the Rouge Dior Lipstick in Promenade (434).

Primetime Emmy Awards.

As Priyanka Chopra shined on the red carpet at the Microsoft Theater Sunday night, the beautiful actress made a statement in a red, custom-made designer dress. Chopra's makeup was one thing; however, her hair was on another level. Chopra was treated to a very glamorous sleek and chic style courtesy of Castillo, her go-to designer. 
"Since the dress was custom-made, I really wanted the hair to be cohesive with the vision of the designer - sleek and chic," Castillo shared. 
So, is it possible to recreate this hair look at home? Absolutely.
First and foremost, Castillo washed Chopra's hair with the MOP Mixed Greens Shampoo. The celebrity stylist went with a moisturizing shampoo as this works to withstand humidity and heat from styling tools.
As the celebrity stylist continued, they used the MOP Pear Detangler. After applying the product, Castillo combed through Chopra's hair to untangle and eliminate any frizz. Then, Castillo applied the MOP Mixed Greens Leave-In Conditioner. Then, Castillo added a little bit of the MOP Lemongrass Lift. 
Next, the celebrity stylist started to rough blow dry the exquisite beauty's hair using the ghd Air Hairdryer until it is about 80% dry. Then, Castillo brushed through the hair with the ghd Paddle Brush to take out any tangles. 
Taking a tail comb, Castillo, then created a side part. Now taking sections of the hair, the celebrity stylist started to flat brush blow dry the hair straight. Then, went over each section with the ghd Platinum Styler. 
As Castillo was done straightening Chopra's hair, the stylist took a dollop sized amount of the MOP Orange Peel Molding Cream and coated the root to mid shaft of the side of her hair. Then, Castillo brushed the product through with a finishing brush before twisting it behind her ear and down the nape of her neck. 
Castillo continued to repeat this technique and gather hair into a ponytail. As she repeated this same technique, she secured it with a hair bungee and wrapped a section of hair around the bungee to conceal it. 
To finish the hair look, Castillo sprayed the MOP C-System Firm Hair Spray around the hair line and around the ponytail. 
Congratulations! You have just recreated Priyanka Chopra's hair look at the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. #Emmys

You may know her from E! News, but Cat Sadler really stunned the red carpet Sunday evening outside of the Microsoft Theater for the 2016 Emmy Awards. As the E! host looked amazing, there is one thing that stood out more than ever - her beautiful skin. Courtesy of Cinthia Lomeli, Sadler was treated to the ultimate sun-kissed glow using Vita Liberata products. The amazing Diane Madison (Yahoo! and Hollyscoop) as well as the wonderful Leanne Aguilera (Entertainment Tonight) were both treated to the same skin glow routine. 
So, is it possible to recreate this amazing body glow at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, Lomeli treated Sadler's skin with long-lasting hydration to maximize suppleness. She used the Vita Liberata Self Tanning Anti-Age Serum. This product delivers hydration and color that is not only natural, but instantaneous. 
 
Then, Lomeli grabbed the Vita Liberata Tanning Mitt and started to apply the Vita Liberata Phenomenal Self Tanning Mousse to both Sadler's face and body.

Sarah Paulson is nominated this evening for an Emmy. Do I think she will win? Absolutely. She looked absolutely gorgeous today in a very stunning sequined Prada dress. Not only did Paulson blow up the spotlight in more ways than one for the awards this year, but she made a statement on the red carpet. As her hair looked great, her makeup looked absolutely amazing. Courtesy of celebrity makeup Adam Breuchaud and Giorgio Armani Beauty, Paulson was treated to a makeup look which complemented and played into the luxury of her dress. 
The question remains - is it possible to recreate this makeup look at home? Yes.
First and foremost, Breuchard prepped the actress's face with the Giorgio Armani Prima Glow-On Moisturizing Balm and the Giorgio Armani Prima Skin Perfector. Not only will this create instantaneous hydration that is long-lasting, but produce a subtle glow. 
As the celebrity makeup artist continued, he applied the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in the shade 4.5 all over Paulson's face for a fresh looking flow. He, then, added the Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer in 15 by tapping and blending the deep saturated color on her cheeks. This worked to create a soft flush effect. 
Then, Breuchard layered the Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in 9 (or Cold Copper) underneath the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow in 6 to create an almost liquid metal effect. Next, the celebrity makeup artist applied several coats of the new Giorgio Armani Eccentrico Mascara. 
So, what about the lips? The celebrity makeup artist lined the Emmy nominee's lips with the Giorgio Armani Him/Her Lipcare in 1 before applying a thin coat of the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet in 600. To finish the lips, Breuchard tapped on the Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer in 15 with his finger and applied it to Paulson's lips.

Get the makeup look: Julia Louis-Dreyfus at the 2016 Emmy Awards

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is one of the funniest women on the planet. And tonight she is up for lead actress in a comedy series for the fifth time in a row for the hit series Veep. As a front-runner for the Emmy's Awards, Louis-Dreyfus deserves to win tonight for her role. As she looked amazing, her personality really shined on the red carpet this evening. What really stood out was her makeup. Courtesy of her makeup artist Karen Kawahara, Louis-Dreyfus was treated to both skin preparation and makeup using La Prairie products.

So, is it possible to recreate this look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, Kawahara prepped the cute comedian's face using the La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion followed by the La Prairie Skin Caviar Liquid Lift. She, then, applied a drop of the La Prairie Essence of Skin Caviar Eye Complex on each eye lid as a base. As she continued, she moisturized Louis-Dreyfus' skin with the La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream.

Now, Kawahara started on the makeup portion of the look. First, she applied the La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF15 in Warm Linen. She applied this product all over Louis-Dreyfus' face, but avoided the eye area. As she continued, she applied the La Prairie Concealer Brightening Eye Treatment to the eyelids followed by a dab of the La Prairie Light Fantastic Cellular Concealer.

"I like to apply concealer after the eyes are done so if I need to clean up any powder from the shadows, I can," Kawahara shared.

Taking the La Prairie Luxe Brow Liner Automatique in Brun, the celebrity makeup artist began to fill in the funny actress's brows. She brushed her eyebrows with the brush on the end, as this works to shape them and keep them looking natural.

Next, Kawahara began shaping the actress's eyes with the La Prairie Luxe Eyeliner Automatique in Brun. She applied this product around the entire eye. Taking a brush and blending it out, Kawahara applied the La Prairie Cellular Treatment Eye Colour Ensemble in Les Orchidees. Taking the mauve color, she applied this all over Louis-Dreyfus' eyelids. Then, she applied the dark braun shadow in Les Brunes, smudging this product over the eyeliner.

"This will give more depth, but is still softer than an eyeliner look," Kawahara added.

The celebrity makeup artist applied the La Prairie Cellular Treatment Mascara Instant Curl in Noir to the cute comedian's lashes. This works to both darken and thicken the lashes. Then, Kawahara added the final touch by applying the La Prairie Luxe Eyeliner Automatic in Brun to inside the eye.

Now, going back under the eye, Kawahara started swiping the La Prairie Concealer Brightening Eye Treatment under the Veep star's eye to both brighten and smooth the under-eye area. "I also like to sweep the cheek bones for a highlight," the celebrity makeup artist shared.

Taking a brush, the celebrity makeup artist dabbed into the La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Rose Glow. Using a circular motion over the cheek bones and towards the ear, Kawahara made Louis-Dreyfus' cheeks look like they were flushed.

To complete the look, she lined the lips with the La Prairie Cellular Luxe Lip Liner in Nude. Blending out the product with a brush, she finished the lips with the La Prairie Cellular Luxe Lip Colour in Tawny.
