The Art of the Red Carpet: Emmys 2014

  • To celebrate this year’s Emmys Awards, we partnered with @paperfashion illustrator Katie Rodgers to track the evening’s beauty trends in real time. Page through the slideshow to see which shades, styles and silhouettes ruled the carpet—and how you can recreate them all season long.
  • All eyes were on the ladies of the night—also known as the nominated characters from shows like Mad Men and Orange is the New Black—and more specifically, their hair. We couldn’t get enough of the chic chignons and old Hollywood waves, two styles that promise to stay popular through fall.
  • We predicted which palettes would rule the red carpet—and indeed, indigo found it’s place among the star-studded crowd. Incorporate the hue into your own beauty routine with Infallible Silkissime Liner in Cobalt Blue and Infallible 24 HR Eyeshadow in Midnight Blue (and don’t be afraid to paint a similar shade on nails).
  • The secret behind flawless complexions on camera? Look no further than the blur. L’Oréal Paris Consulting Celebrity Makeup Artist Billy B has this tip: Prime skin with Miracle Blur before camouflaging imperfections with Visible Lift Foundation. Then, blend blush up and out from the apples of the cheeks.
  • Flyaways can make or break a red carpet hairstyle—so starlets like Taylor Schilling turn to Elnett Satin Hairspray to keep things smooth and sleek with a soft, shiny finish. To recreate her elegant bun, secure strands with a generous spritz after twisting and pinning.
  • While we may never have dragons, we can copy Khaleesi’s flawless complexion, romantic curls and icy color palette. Visit Destination Beauty for a step-by-step beauty tutorial here.
  • The bright lip. The bold eye. Joan Holloway’s ‘60s beauty is nothing short of timeless—and you can try the look on for yourself by downloading the Makeup Genius App (courtesy of L’Oréal Paris Consulting Makeup Artist Billy B).
  • The show may be over, but we’re paying homage to the gowns that glided down the carpet with Emmys-inspired nails. Paint on a perfect mani like this one with Colour Riche Collection Privee polish, and add a two-tone twist with graphic shapes in darker hues.
