Emmy’s Makeup MVP – Christina Hendricks

The truth is, I really love this current season’s makeup trends. And everyone looked healthy, beautiful and radiant on last night’s red carpet. But Christina Hendricks really stepped up her game with Hourglass Cosmetics makeup. So I had to feature a “Get the Look”, perfect to implement for a fall wedding or  holiday parties in the next couple months.

Christina was wearing Christian Siriano gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, with her trademark curvy bombshell look. Her face complimented the sheer neutral material of the dress and let her curves and bold lip to the talking.

Makeup artist Vanessa Scali went for old Hollywood glamour. She started with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, which hydrates while creating a great canvas for makeup. Next, she applied Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Shell. Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer was applied wherever necessary.

Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush was applied to the apples of the cheeks blending outward to the cheekbones.

For definition and intensity, she lined her eyes with Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Liner in Ebony at the base of the lashes and on the inside top rim of the eye. Using the lighter shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy, she swept the color from the lash line to the eye brow. Then, she used a touch of the deeper shade blending it well, from the lash line to just above the crease and swept past the natural outer corner to exaggerate and elongate the eye. This color continues very subtly under the bottom lashes. She finished the eyes with lush, flirty lashes – Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara (reviewed here) was used all over the lashes and Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer concentrated on the center of the lashes.

She gave Christina a bold, strong lip with Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon (reviewed here).
