The 90th annual Academy Awards were held earlier this evening at the Dolby Theatre in the heart of Los Angeles, California. As part of an annual event to acknowledge, recognize and honor the world of cinema, this event is also one that acknowledges, recognizes and honors those who attend. Recently, the beautiful actress Sasha Lane was in attendance. Known for her role in American Honey, the unique beauty blew up the spotlight earlier today in an artistic black dress and slate gray clutch, both courtesy of Dior. She also had the pleasure of teaming up with the talented celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine for a super simple makeup look.

"To avoid distracting from the beautiful Dior dress, we decided to go with a super simple makeup look," the celebrity makeup artist shared.

So, is it possible to re-create this look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, the celebrity makeup artist prepped the beautiful starlet's skin using the Dior Capture Youth Glow Booster Age-Delay Illuminating Serum, followed with Dior Capture Youth Age-Delay Advanced Crème. As Fine continued, he used the Diorskin Forever Undercover foundation in the shade #035 Desert Beige and Diorskin Forever Undercover Concealer in the shade #040 Honey Beige. This was primarily used to even out Lane's actual skin tone. As Lane continued, he used the Diorskin Forever & Ever Control Loose Powder to set everything before applying the Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Powder in the shade #003 to the apples of Lane's cheeks for a gorgeous glow.

The eyes were very simple yet natural, which is one reason I truly loved this look. Fine filled the stunning star's brows using the Diorshow Brow Styler in the color #004 Black. The eyes were very subtle and because the celebrity artist kept things minimal, he finished the eyes just adding a few coats of Diorshow Pump'N'Volume mascara in #090 Black Pump.

"We finished the look with a nude lip using Dior Addict Lacquer Plump in the color #426 Lovely-D," Sam Fine shared before finishing up the look.

Congratulations! You have just re-created Sasha Lane's makeup look from the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. #Oscars

Priyanka Chopra is one of the most beautiful women in the world. I have been a fan of Bollywood for quite sometime, so when I heard she started appearing on television and movies in Hollywood it was definitely something great to see. Clive Davis is a world-renowned music mogul and every year he hosts a party. Yesterday, the stunning starlet looked amazing with her glam look created by the talented Dior makeup artist Daniel Martin.

"Walk of shame! We wanted to create a makeup look that was a bit lived-in after a night of partying. Smudgy, glittery, violet eyes and a matte lip add a futuristic-meets-rock 'n' roll vibe to her finished look," Martin shared in regards to the inspiration behind the look.

So, is it possible to re-create Chopra's makeup look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, the Dior makeup artist applied the Diorskin Forever Undercover in #041 Ochre which was used to create a base. Then, Martin used the Diorskin Forever Undercover Concealer in #040 Honey Beige before setting everything with the Honest Beauty Invisible Blurring Powder. To finish the face, he applied the Honest Beauty Creme Blush on the apples on Chopra's cheeks.

Next, Martin focused on the eyes where he used various colors from the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership III: Subversive Palette. As he continued, he added some definition using the Diorshow Pro Liner Waterproof in #842 Pro Pink followed by the Diorshow Art Pen in #095 Catwalk Black. To complete the eyes, the celebrity makeup artist added a couple coats of the Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara in #090 Over Black.

To complete the look, the celebrity makeup artist created a custom color for the stunning star's lips by mixing the Rouge Dior Liquid in #625 Mysterious Matte and the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick.

Congratulations! You have just re-created Priyanka Chopra's makeup look for the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala. #Grammys

2018 Grammy Awards.

Janelle Monae is one of those incredible talents that you just need in music. When I first heard "TheArchAndroid" back in 2010, I just knew she was destined to be a star. As you are aware, tonight is the 60th annual Grammy Awards. Monae looked eccentrically chic. As her hair looked amazing, her makeup shined. The beautiful talented star teamed up with celebrity makeup artist Jessica Smalls for a glam makeup look inspired by Twiggy.

"I wanted to give Janelle a timeless and current look at the same time, so I decided to give her a Twiggy 2018 vibe," Smalls shared.

So, is it possible to re-create this look at home? Absolutely.

First and foremost, the celebrity makeup artist prepped Monae's skin. Yesterday to be exact (Saturday) she wanted to use a few products to prepare Monae for the awards tonight. The celebrity makeup artist decided to use the Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask to help brighten her skin's appearance. Then, earlier this evening, Smalls decided to decided to take the gorgeous glow Monae exuded to the next level by giving her a light 5-minute steam. As she continued, she massaged the Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate all over the beautiful star's face and along her neck. Then, she applied the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. As the celebrity makeup artist continued, she applied the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado around her eyes, using her ring finger, to keep that delicate area moisturized.

As the celebrity makeup artist continued, she applied a pore minimizing primer all over her face using a synthetic brush. Then, she mixed the Buxom Cosmetics Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation in shade In the Dark with the Buxom Cosmetics Divine Goddess Luminizer using a damp sponge. Starting by Monae's nose and blending upwards and outwards, Smalls applied this all over her face. Using her ring finger, Smalls sparingly dabbed some Concealer under her eyes to brighten them. Then, she contoured the star's face, focusing on her cheeks, temples and forehead with the Buxom Cosmetics Hot Escapes Bronzer in shade Maldives. To finish her face, the celebrity makeup artist applied a soft pink to the apples of her cheeks, with some Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream on top for a subtle glow.

Smalls wanted to give Monae a beautiful, bold makeup look that made a statement. For this particular look, she applied the Buxom Cosmetics Eyeshadow Bar Single Eyeshadow in shades Lingerie Lover, Haute Couture and LBD to her crease, using a soft blending brush. Then, she lined her water line with the Buxom Cosmetics Hold The Line Waterproof Eyeliner in shade Ring My Bell and swept the Buxom Cosmetics Eyeshadow Bar Single Eyeshadow in shade Twilight Tryst on top to make the green pop. To finish the eyes, the celebrity makeup artist decided to go with the Eylure Luxe Silk “Trillion” false lashes before applying a few individual lashes on the bottom for a “Twiggy” effect. To complete the look, she used the Buxom Cosmetics Big Tease Plumping Mascara.

To complete the entire look, Smalls hydrated Monae's lips with the Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 and filled them in slightly with the the Buxom Cosmetics Plumpline Lip Liner in shade Stealth. She finished the makeup look with the Buxom Cosmetics Full-On Lip Polish in shade Megan.

Congratulations! You have just re-created Janelle Monae's makeup look for the 60th annual Grammy Awards. #Grammys

The 60th annual Grammy Awards are being held right now. As some of the most talented people join to celebrate, this year's awards recognize and acknowledge those stars who contribute to the world of music. Rita Ora is not only talented, she is beautiful and tonight the star teamed up with celebrity makeup artist, the talented Kathy Jeung for an amazing makeup look.

"With the classic shape of Ralph & Russo dress, I wanted to keep the focus on Rita’s complexion and eyes – giving her skin a satin finish with a touch of radiance and highlighter to accentuate Rita’s bone structure, and a simple glossy eye with lashes that lift the outer corners," Jeung shared.

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

First and foremost, the celebrity makeup artist applied the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Breathable Primer all over Ora's cleansed, toned and moisturized face. As she continued, Jeung applied the then applied Rimmel London #Insta Conceal & Correct under the star's eyes. Then, she applied the applied Rimmel London Match Perfection Concealer in Light/Medium with her ring finger. The celebrity makeup artist used a tapping motion underneath the eyes to blend into the rest Ora's face.

Mixing the Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25HR Foundation in 303 True Nude with small amount of the Rimmel London Good to Glow Highlighter in 003 Soho Glow, Jeung applied this to Ora's face with a flat foundation brush. Using only broad strokes, she continued by using a damp beauty sponge to blend the product into the star's face. To finish the face, the celebrity makeup artist used the Rimmel London’s #Insta Fix & Matte Translucent Powder to set Rita Ora's face.

Then, Jeung applied the Rimmel London Kate Moss Sculpting & Highlighting Kit in Golden Sands to highlight the tops of Ora's cheekbones, as well as: above her jawline and down length of her nose. Using a narrow wedge brush, the celebrity makeup artist applied the blush using a rounded brush on the apples of her cheeks and extended towards temples. To complete this portion of the makeup look, Jeung applied the Rimmel London Insta Duo Contour Stick to highlight along the tops of Ora's cheekbones and blended the product with a damp sponge.

So, what about the eyes? The celebrity makeup artist used the Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil, to fill-in Ora's eye brow shape followed by the Rimmel London Brow This Way Brow Pomade in Medium, to add color. To complete the brows, Jeung used the Rimmel London Brow This Way Highlighting Pencil to lift the arch of the brow.

As she continued, she applied the beige shade of the Rimmel London Magnif'Eyes Shadow Contouring Palette Blush Edition to the browbone and blended the matte taupe color into the crease. Then, the celebrity makeup artist used the Rimmel London ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick in Witness White to the inner corners of Ora's eyes before blending for a trace of highlight.

Then, Jeung added the Rimmel London Oh My Gloss in Clear to the beautiful singer's eyelids. Next, the celebrity makeup artist lined the star's eyes using the Rimmel London ScandalEyes Precision Micro Eyeliner in Black. To finish the eyes, she applied two coats of Rimmel London Shake It Fresh Mascara in Black to the upper lashes only.

Finally, to complete the entire makeup look, the celebrity makeup artist applied the Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Plum This Go to give the star a deep yet dark lip.

Get the makeup look: Nicholas K Fall/Winter 2017 NYFW

A look at the makeup for the Nicholas K
FW'17 show.

New York Fashion Week kicked off late last week in the heart of the big apple. As the most world-renowned fashion event in the city that never sleeps, fashion week delivers some of the hottest (and hautest) collections from some of your favorite designers and labels. And in spite of the heavy snow fall and chilling temperatures NYFW was in full effect Thursday especially when Nicholas K debuted their collection for Fall/Winter 2017. As the collection had somewhat of an urban chic flair, it also embodied an essence of street wear we don't see too often. And as the designs shined the runway, the makeup on the models really complemented them and as a result, brought the entire look together. For the Nicholas K show, the models were glammed by Sarah Lucero, Global Executive Director of Creative Artistry.

Lucero was inspired by the gold pieces and accessories in the new collection, she decided to create a look to complement this. With so many options, she decided to go with a beautiful gold eye and a neutral lip.

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

First and foremost, Lucero started prepping the models' skin. When doing any kind of makeup look it is so important to start with a clean face. Making sure the lips are exfoliated, hydrated and moisturized, the celebrity makeup artist also brushed the models' eyebrows.

As she continued, she cleaned up the brows before filling them in. Taking the Stila All Day Waterproof Brow Color, the celebrity MUA began brushing, feathering and shaping the models' brows.

Then, Lucero used the Stila All Day Foundation, while correcting the skin minimally. This not only gives the face dimension, but some depth which really stands true as a natural contour.

Sarah, then, started using the new Stila Matte 'n Metal Eyeshadow Palette, where she used shades that complemented the skin tone of the models. Before doing this; however, the makeup artist warmed the eye using a light transitional shade from the Stila essential.
 

Using primarily matte eyeshadow shades, Lucero took the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Glow Goddess and lined both the upper and lower lash line of the models' eyes. She, then, finished with a few coats of the Stila Huge Mascara.

Although the foundation worked to enhance the models faces for this look, the celebrity makeup artist decided to add some amazing contour to this look. For this particular look, she used the Stila Shape & Shade Custom Contour Duo along the cheekbone giving it both dimension and depth.

To finish the entire makeup look, the Global Executive Director of Creative Artistry used the new Stila Color Calm Balm Grayson, which works to also prime the lips. Then, she applied the Stila Lip Glaze in Apricot.

Congratulations! You have just recreated the models' makeup look for the Nicholas K Fall/Winter 2017 show. #NYFW

Courtesy of the talented Debra Ferullo, Hudson was treated to a glamorous makeup look to complement her style.

“When I saw Kate’s rose gold outfit, I thought it would look beautiful with a bold eye and lots of lashes.

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.

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. 
To complete the entire makeup look, he used the LORAC Alter Ego Lip Liner in Secret Angel followed by the LORAC Alter Ego Lipstick in Exhibitionist.

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

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).

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.

Congratulations. You have just recreated Julia Louis-Dreyfus' makeup look at the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. #Emmys
