Award season is officially upon us! First up: the 2016 Emmy Awards. Along with bestowing the top honors to the year’s standout TV shows we all binge-watched and the glamorous red carpet fashion, the stars didn’t fall short on delivering covetable hairstyles and makeup looks that we’ve already pinned at the top of our beauty inspiration boards. Here, we’ve rounded up the best beauty moments of the night seen on the red carpet at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles. Keep scrolling to get all the pretty details on the stars’ looks.
1. America Ferrara
America’s soft, feathery waves and smoky eye is definitive proof that disco is still alive. Inspired by Studio 54, makeup artist Avnessa Scali created the Superstore actress’ eye look mixing Mark All Time Eye Hook Up Longwear Shadow in Sun Ray and Tender Love ($10 each; avon.com) and applied it from the lash line to the crease and under the lower lashes while blending it in so the look was soft, and used the shade Quicksand on the brow bone. Next, she used Mark No Place to Run Waterproof Eyeliner in Jet Set ($10; avon.com) to draw on a kitten flick, and followed with Mark On the Edge Full Size Hook Up Liquid Eyeliner in Cleo ($10; avon.com) on the lash line for extra depth and drama. Scali finished the look by smudging Mark No Place to Run Waterproof Eyeliner in Foxy Brown ($10; avon.com) along the bottom lash line.
2. Ariel Winter
For a gown as sparkly as Ariel’s, the actress needed equally shiny hair to match. After twisting her hair in a chic, low chignon celebrity hairstylist Aviva Perea spritzed Matrix Style Link Gloss Booster ($10; jcpenney.com) to give the star’s style even more sheen.
3. Claire Danes
Claire’s flaxen wavy hair, sparkly eye makeup, and glowing complexion was solid gold.
4. Emilia Clarke
Emilia traded in her trademark long platinum locks on Game of Thrones for a dual textured updo. Hairstylist Adir Abergel used both volumizing mousse and a high shine gel to create both slickness and ethereal body in this style. After drying Clarke’s damp strands with a volumizing mousse, he slicked back the lower half of Clarke’s strands with gel and made a low sleek ponytail. He then gathered the top into the ponytail. For an architectural spin, he twisted the star’s strands and let the elastic peek through for “a raw and modern touch.”
5. Emily Ratajkowski
Blue eyeshadow has never looked so elegant. Emily’s jewel-toned smoky aqua eye came courtesy of a handful of Lorac eye products. Makeup artist Hung Vanngo used a duo of Lorac Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencils in Navy and Aqua ($10 each; ulta.com), and a combination of blue shades in Lorac PRO Palettes 2 and 3 ($44 each; ulta.com).
6. Julia Louis-Dreyfus
A match made in red carpet heaven: Julia’s soft waves and glowing complexion.
7. Julianne Hough
Proof Julianne is a woman who can do both: Although the star is known for her signature messy lob, she pulls off a slicked-back ‘do just as flawlessly.
8. Kirsten Dunst
Kirsten’s loose, Old Hollywood-inspired waves are a red carpet classic that never goes out of style.
9. Kerry Washington
Consider Kerry’s natural curls your new #HairGoals from here on out.
10. Maisie Williams
The best way to compliment a high-neck red carpet dress: a bangin’ updo. After pulling the Game of Throne’s star’s hair into a high ponytail, celebrity hairstylist Ryan Richman for Dove Hair spritzed Dove Refresh + Care Dry Shampoo Volume & Fullness ($4; target.com) all over the tail and backcombed it with a brush to create volume and absorb oil. Next, he twisted Maisie’s hair into a bun and secured with a few hair pins. As an edgy, finishing touch, Richman clipped in the faux bangs to the front of the style.
11. Olivia Culpo
Makeup artist Sir John went for soft shimmery mauves on the former Miss Universe’s lids. “Going for a bit of pop in the form of a tinted eyeliner is key,” says John who used a waterproof eyeliner (L’Oreal Infallibe Silkissime Eyeliner, $8; ulta.com) along the lower waterline.
12. Michelle Dockery
Retro waves and a berry lip is one glamorous beauty look Lady Crowley would approve of.
13. Priyanka Chopra
Priyanka’s sleek, slicked-back pony kept the focus all on her classic red lip which she daringly matched to her princess-worthy gown that was made for twirling.
14. Sarah Hyland
Sarah’s low updo is your go-to gym hairstyle with a elegant red carpet twist.
15. Sarah Paulson
A soft, radiant complexion was the perfect match for Sarah’s luxe emerald dress. Makeup artist Adam Breuchard started with a duo of Giorgio Armani Prima Glow-On Moisturizing Balm ($110; nordstrom.com) and Giorgio Armani Prima Skin Perfector ($100; nordstrom.com) to inject a fresh glow. Next, he applied the cult-favorite Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #4.5 ($64; sephora.com) and finished by adding a soft flush to Paulson’s complexion by tapping and blending Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer in #15 ($62; sephora.com) onto the star’s cheeks.
16. Sofia Vergara
What’s red all over and completely gorgeous? Sofia’s wine-hued makeup.
17. Sophie Turner
Sophie’s loose, undone, romantic braid is the epitome of #BraidGoals.
18. Tatiana Maslany
The major key to Tatiana’s neutral and pretty makeup look: fresh, radiant skin. To prep the Orphan Black star’s complexion for the red carpet, celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh patted Tatiana’s face with a few drops of Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate ($46; kiehls.com), before applying Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream ($28; kiehls.com) all over. Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado ($48; kiehls.com) was used on the delicate eye area to ensure skin was soft, smooth, and bright.
