2016 Emmy Beauties!

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the Emmy’s this year. I thought it was very entertaining and not nearly as boring as the Oscar’s!

One of my favorite gowns was worn by Kristin Bell and I got the 411 on her natural and glowy makeup look!

Kristen Bell Makeup Look by Simone Almekias-Siegl

 Inspiration:

“My inspiration started with the dress. I wanted her to look like a flawless goddess. It was important to me that her skin was fresh and dewy looking, which we achieved.” – Simone

Tips:

SKIN:

“First and all I love prepping her skin – my most important step to put on flawless makeup.  I used the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes to remove any oils.”

“Then we love using the Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Scrub to get a smooth surface and get her skin bright and clean.  Then we moisturize her face and under the eye with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, as well as the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Eye.”

“I now take the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup to even out her complexion and brush a little Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector under her eye to highlight, and cover any dark areas.  I used almost no powder to keep her skin dewy looking. Just a little in the t-zone.”

 “I know brushed on MAC cosmetic shadow in “expensive pink “all over her lid and highlighted right under her brow bone with Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow Palette in Cool Plum using the light pink highlight color.”

 “I always like to mix two mascaras. One for volume and one for lengthening to get the wispy and full lash effect. Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara and Neutrogena Lengths Mascara is my go to.”

“My favorite blush is the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blush in Bronzed. I applied it directly on the apples of her cheek.”

To complete her look we used Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Classic Nude. I’m in love.

Kerry Washington showed us how to look elegant and timely while preggers.

Kerry Washington Hair Look by Hair Stylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew

Inspiration:

“From the moment I saw Kerry’s Brandon Maxwell dress, I instantly thought big, natural and textured hair will keep the look fresh, modern and soft. My inspiration for the look was her baby bump. When it came to styling her hair it was all about the cut outs and her baby bump. I really wanted the hair to stand out and that’s why I styled it with a lot of texture while still showing her face with the middle part.” – Takisha Sturdivant-Drew

 Tips & Product Breakdown:

“To get Kerry’s healthy, textured looking hair I shampooed her hair with Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo, which instantly cleanses the hair without stripping it. The conditioner I used was Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Mask.  It is an intensive moisture treatment that restores shine and leaves the hair so soft and lustrous.”

1. I air-dried her hair on a medium dryer to keep the texture in her hair. I wanted to add volume and make the hair swell.

2. Then I parted her hair down the middle because I wanted to keep her face open.

3. Finally to give her hair, this added texture with volume I started from the back and clipped in TSD Hair Extensions and worked my way to the top for length and volume.

4. To finish off the hairstyle I used a small wand to curl certain pieces.

5. Lastly, I brushed the hair out with my goody paddle brush and goody lift comb to give her hair that undone textured look and pump up the volume.

Allison Janney looked spectacular and made us over 40 women proud! Represent Allison!

Over 40 beauty Julie Bowen sported a smokey eye and nude lip that really worked on her! Here’s the secret!

Julie Bowen Makeup Look by Makeup Artist Heather Currie

Inspiration:                   

Typically I get inspiration from the dress that Julie wears. This year she’s wearing a white dress with rose gold accents and jewelry. I know that Julie loves to have a smokey eye. I think she looks beautiful with a 60’s inspired eye so I blended all these ideas together to create this look.” – Heather Currie

Eyes:

“Since I knew I was going to do a smokey eye, I pat foundation from the sponge on her eyes as a primer to the eyeshadow.  Then, I dusted a little powder over the foundation to set it before applying the eyeshadow.”

“I used a few eye shadow palettes including Neutrogena Long Wear Eye Shadow in Cool Plum, Mink Brown and Soft Taupe and Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Liner in Spiced Chocolate and Cosmic Black.”

 “I also like to mix Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 25 with concealer and apply it under the eyes to brighten the area.  I finished the look with Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara.
