Despite the fact that Sunday’s Emmy Awards took place during record-breaking temperatures, the starlets on the red carpet managed to keep their makeup intact. We found the exact beauty products that kept eight ladies looking anything but overheated. Check out what you’ll need to get looks like Amy Schumer‘s now-famous smoky eye and Sarah Paulson‘s killer red lip.
Amy Schumer’s smoky eye was the talk of the night (after she thanked her makeup artist in her speech)—and deservedly so. Makeup artist Andréa Tiller used Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Copper ($26) as a base (to keep everything in place and withstand the heat) and then applied Charlotte Tilbury’s The Golden Goddess color-coded eye shadows ($52) on top. She then used the dark brown shade of Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow 796 ($62) to smoke up the outer corner of the eyes and Laura Mercier’s Black Turquois Kohl Eye Pencil ($25) to give the eyes a subtle pop of color.
Taraji P. Henson’s purple smoky eye was truly a Cookie-worthy smoky on last night’s red carpet. The Empire actor showed up early and worked the interview circuit, and her makeup did not budge. Makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff swept L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eyeshadow in Smoldering Plum ($7.99) all over Taraji’s eyelids and added darker mahogany and cocoa colors from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude ($19.99) in the crease and along the lower lash line.
Emma Roberts may have had the best glow of the night—and we’re not talking about sweat. She somehow oozed an effortless cool, with her Old Hollywood glam waves and light pink lips. But it was her highlight that was completely on point. Her makeup artist, Lauren Andersen got the look using Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light ($45) on the cheeks.
Taylor Schilling stunned on the carpet last night in a vibrant yellow Stella McCartney dress, and she didn’t shy away from color on her face either. That orange-red lip? It’s Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution in 1975 Red ($32), which Schilling’s makeup artist Hung Vanngo describes as a coral red shade which adds dimension.
Sarah Hyland’s perfectly textured hair is going to give us inspiration for years to come. The man behind the look, Ryan Richman, first prepped her hair at the root with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Blow Out HeatSpray ($4.99) before he dried the hair while combing with his fingers. After going through the hair with a curling iron, he added L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper-Fix Putty ($3.99) and worked it through to break up the waves and add more texture.
Aside from Sarah Paulson’s sleek and chic bob, her red lip was the statement of her look. To make the Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Really Red ($15) stay all night, makeup artist Adam Breuchaud applied a light layer with a brush, and then powered it to make it matte. Then he applied it straight from the tube to layer on the color.
Kerry Washington’s deep-berry lip was actually a mix of a lip liner and a color crayon. Makeup artist Carola Gonzalez lined Kerry’s lips with Chanel Precision Lip Definer in Rouge Noir ($31) and then blended the color with Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Rich Raisin ($7.99). She blotted the lips and then reapplied to set.
One of our favorite OITNB ladies, Uzo Aduba, gave a great speech last night—and had some of the most memorable brows. Makeup artist Janice Kinjo used SheaMoisture’s The Perfect Brow Kit in Brown ($14) to fill in Uzo’s brows and set them with wax. She also used SheaMoisture’s Color Correcting, Contouring & Highlighting Palette in Medium ($24) to “further shape and define the brows.”
