When it comes to the red carpet, there is no room for error. All eyes are on you, all camera lenses are on you and most of all the public are looking at you in anticipation to judge you solely on how you look. This is important; these photos will be used for years to come, whether it’s for the award you won or for how fabulous you looked, or how not so fabulous you looked… You don’t want to end up on the circle of shame section for thousands to see, so let’s go through the unspoken rule of the red carpet, this week: The Emmys.
When it comes to makeup, a general rule I like to use when considering eye makeup and lips is, ‘it’s one or the other’. If you want to go with a heavy or dramatic eye look, then keep the lips simple and natural. Vice versa, when you can’t wait to try out your new bright red lippy, make sure your eyes have minimal application of products. This way, you won’t look like a drag-queen, unless that’s your thing of course.
The Emmys which were held on Sunday 23rd of September, made us makeup-junkies and fashion-addicts all over the world wait in anticipation for the first photos to go viral.
We saw, we took note and we were inspired.
Kelly Osbourne showed us when it came to ‘all or nothing’ she was going for it all. I’m loving her perfectly shaped brows which not only look amazing but make such a difference to the shape of her face. She rocked a vampish rouge lip, teaming it with light –but-still-grey- eyeshadow and a simple eyeliner flick to create the all-round full on look. And it worked. Oh and if anyone can pull off the granny-grey barnet, it’s Miss Osbourne.
The stunning Hayden Panettiere looked fault-free whilst wearing what looks like next-to-nothing. This girl chose the ‘nothing’ look and pulled it off. Too well. I’m loving her bronzed eye-shadow with the blended eye-liner look. This looks amazing on anyone, regardless of your eye-colour. Promise. She’s topped off her effortless, beige tones with a simple neutral tinted lipbalm for the ultimate natural look. But we all know just how much works goes into a ‘natural’ look – don’t we girls!
So how would you makeup your face for The Emmys?
