Get the look: Allison Williams at the 2014 Emmy Awards

Who: Allison Williams
What: 2014 Emmy Awards
Makeup: Pati Dubroff

Dubroff prepped the skin with tarte clean slate timeless smoothing primer in the t-zone to eliminate shine (and subsequently the need for powder). Once skin was prepped she used a little tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation SPF 15 in light medium honey, so that the coverage was sheer and Williams’ freckles could show through.  Next, she used tarte park avenue princess bronzer to give a golden glow, and tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in fearless on the apples of the cheeks for a natural flush.
Next, Dubroff used brow architect™ brow shaper, liner and definer in medium-tan to define the brows.  Next, she used Pati Dubroff dream palette on the eyes, using ochre and raw in the crease and under the eye. She applied tarte smolderEYES™ Amazonian clay waterproof liner in golden beige in the center of the lid, followed by Chanel Illusion D’ombre in Abstraction on top.  Dubroff added a flash bright yellow to the inner corners of the eyes with NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Corcovado.  At the base of the lash line, Dubroff used tarte lights, camera, lashes™ precision longwear liquid eyeliner, adding a light flick at the outer corner. She completed the eye look by coating the lashes in tarte lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara.

On the lips, she used tarte  LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in lucky with a touch of tarte Amazonian butter lipstick in golden pink layered on top.

Dubroff used Jergens BB Body Skin Perfecting Cream in Medium to give a subtle radiant to illuminate the skin that was shown off in Williams’ Giambattista Valli couture gown.
And here’s a sneak peek inside Williams’ clutch:
It includes tarte not so slick oil-absorbing blotting papers, tarte LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in lucky, and tarte Amazonian butter lipstick in golden pink.

Giveaway: Dove Advanced Hair Series Oxygen Moisture

If you have fine hair, like myself, the choice is usually moisture or volume, but never both.  Moisturizing products tend to weigh hair down with silicones or oils, so it's either big hair or shiny hair.  WHY CAN'T I HAVE BOTH?  Well boys and girls, Dove doesn't think you should have to choose.  The new Dove Oxygen Moisture line fuses moisturizing ingredients with oxygen to nourish our hair whilst giving it the bounce that it deserves.  The line includes shampoo that cleanses gently, conditioner that moisturizes but leaves the hair full, Leave In Foam that moisturizes and gives a light hold, and a Root Lift Spray to really pump up the volume.
We're giving away 1 Oxygen Moisture Leave In Foam and 1 Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray to a lucky winner.  To enter, please comment below (please leave your email address so you can be contacted in the event that you win) and tell me your fine hair woes.  Contest will end September 10, 2014 at 11:59 PM EST.  Contest is open to U.S. residents only.  Winner will be chosen at random.

Get the look: Kate Mara at the 2014 Emmy Awards

Who: Kate Mara
What: 2014 Emmy Awards
Hair:  Mara Roszak
Makeup: Maki Ryoke 


 Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow was used lightly all over the face to create the perfect canvas for foundation.  Ryoke mixed Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation in 2 & 4 to match Mara’s complexion.

Next, she applied a light dusting of Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-powder in Medium 2 to keep shine in check.  Ryoke used Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in The Rock Chick to create a sultry, smoky eye.  
Then Charlotte Tilbury Rock ‘N’ Kohl Eye Pencil in Bedroom Black was applied around the entire eye, including the waterline.  Ryoke also used Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick to accentuate the lash line.
Next, Ryoke used Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow to highlight and sculpt the cheek, nose, the top of the lip, shoulders, and décolletage.  She finished the look with the perfect nude lip, using Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Iconic Nude, and topped that with K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Nude Kate.    

Roszak created texture in Mara's hair using L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray, and then rough-drying the hair to create volume at the roots.  She then created loose waves using a 1.5" curling iron and sprayed a generous amount of L'Oréal Paris Elnett Extra Strong Hold Satin Hairspray.  To finish the look, and give a little more texture, Roszak used a little L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty applied on her fingers to rub over the ends for a piecey effect.  

Get the look: Claire Danes at the 2014 Emmy Awards

Who: Claire Danes
What: 2014 Emmy Awards
Hair: Peter Butler

Butler started by distributing Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice all through Danes' damp hair, and then blew it dry using a large round brush.  For even more volume, he went back in and sprayed Voluforme at the roots of the hair while blowing it out.   

Next, he pulled the hair into a low ponytail using a bungee elastic with hooks on the end.  He created a fishtail braid, pulling it out to make it a bit wider.  He sprayed the braid with a healthy amount of Leonor Greyl Laque Souple to give it texture.  Bailey pinned the fishtail braid into a low chignon and pinned it in place.  And for those of you who think you'd never be able to do that at home, Bailey re-did the braided chignon 3 times to make sure it was just right.  So practice makes perfect! 

Get the look: Rose Leslie at the 2014 Emmy Awards

Who: Rose Leslie
What: 2014 Emmy Awards
Makeup: KC Fee
You know nothing, Jon Snow

Fee prepped Leslie's skin with Chanel Hydra Beauty Essence Mist, Hydra Beauty Serum, Hydra Beauty Gel Creme, and Sublimage La Creme Yeux.  After skin was moisturized, Fee used Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Lightweight Foundation and Chanel Correcteur Perfection to create flawless skin.
On Leslie's eyes, she used Lorac Mocha and Rose Eyeshadows, L'Oreal Paris Extra Intense Liquid Eye Liner, and Benefit They're Real Mascara.  On her cheeks, Fee used Chanel Joues Contraste in Rose Ecrin, and she finished the whole look off with NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Palais Royal for a pop of color on the lips.  

Get the look: Natalie Dormer at the 2014 Emmy Awards

Who: Natalie Dormer
What: 2014 Emmy Awards
Makeup: Jake Bailey


Bailey began by lining Dormer's top lashline with Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Perversion and blended it softly with his fingertip. 
*Expert tip: Bailey started with the eye makeup so that any makeup that fell on the face can be cleaned up before foundation application. 
Next, Bailey applied a warm shimmery brown shade, Lancome Color Design Shadow in Pose, all over her lids and into the crease.  He lined her lower lashline with Urban Decay's 24/7 liner in Smog and blended it with the finger again.  To finish the eyes, he applied a pair of mink lashes from Velour called “Those Real" and coated them with Urban Decay Mascara in Perversion (my current obsession). 
Once the eyes were finished, Bailey applied a touch of Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Creamy Vanilla over Dormer's skin using a soft, flat-tipped kabuki brush.  He added warmth to her cheeks using a custom blush he blended, using equal parts Le Blush Creme de Chanel blush in Affinite, and NARS Illuminator in Copacabana. 
Next, Bailey dusted Dormer's face with Covergirl Clean Pressed Powder in Ivory.  He emphasized her cheekbones with NARS Contour Blush in Olympia in the hollows of the cheeks.
He finished the look by lining Dormer's lips with Urban Decay 24/7 lip liner in Naked, and topped it with L’Oreal Color Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Pink Perseverance.
