Cosmetic Copy: How to Get Christina Hendricks' Stunning Emmy Awards Look
Posted Tuesday September 24, 2013 8:10 AM GMT
Christina Hendricks’ body is unreal. Yet, it's somehow matched by her timeless beauty. (Some girls have all the luck).
The “Mad Men” actress flaunted her famous curves on the 65th Annual Emmy Awards red carpet in a black Christian Siriano gown that featured delicate lace details and a super cinched waist.
To keep with the dress’ feminine appeal, Elizabeth Arden makeup artist Vanessa Scali opted to keep Hendricks’ cosmetic look rather simple.
“Christina is a stunning, radiant beauty. We could have really gone in any direction with the makeup — bold lips, smoky eyes, fresh and pretty,” said Scali. “In the end, we went for a fresh face and a warm, red lip.”
Loving her glam appearance? So are we! Lucky for all, Scali dished the deets on how to achieve this look at home.
Step 1: On days you need extra staying power, skip the heavy moisturizers and use a serum instead. Prep your face with Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules ($72) – they make a great primer! They're packed with treatment and thoroughly penetrate the skin leaving it a clean, even canvas for your foundation.
Step 2: Apply Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup ($36.50) to give it a soft, luminous glow. Swipe foundation along the bridge of nose, cheeks, chin and forehead and use the sponge to blend the color to the outer edges of the face
Step 3: Dab Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lift and Firm Concealer ($19.50) under the eyes and on the inner hollow (on the nose) just beside the inner corner of the eyes
Step 4: For a pop of color, use Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Pink ($24) to flush the cheeks. This makes the skin look fresh and lit from within.
Step 5: Using very little, swipe the darker shade in the Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Duo in Precious Metals ($28.50) from the lash line of the eyelid to the crease, and under the lower lashes as well. Blend it into the skin so there is no border. The subtle shading gives the eye definition in a soft and sexy way.
Step 6: Apply Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Smoky Eyes Pencil in Smoky Black ($18) on the upper lid, starting with a thin line on the inner corner of the eyes and becoming progressively thicker toward the outer corners of the eyes. Using a small tapered brush, smudge a touch of it into the lower lashes under the eyes.
Step 7: Curl your lashes well and apply a few generous coats of Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara in Black ($24) on the top lashes, with one coat on the bottom.
Step 8: Enhance brows with Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Brow Shaper & Eyeliner in Soft Blonde ($22).
Step 9: Apply Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick (12 hour formula) in Power Red ($25). This warm red looks bold and elegant.
