ScarJo’s masterpiece of a cat eye and that perfectly tousled hair flip landed her on InStyle’s Best of Beauty list. Instead of just going with your standard wing, ScarJo paired the precise flick with shimmering yellow shadow from Pat McGrath's MOTHERSHIP V: Bronze Ambition Palette haloed around her eyes. To achieve the volume in her bob, hairstylist Jenny Cho layered Suave Professionals Natural Volume Mousse with R+Co Pomade Mousse before blow-drying.
Alright, Mandy Moore’s pink highlight deserves an Emmy, too. Pink shadow, a matching subtle pink lip, and low-key beach waves completed her red carpet look.
If you want to steal Moore's look for yourself, pick up Lancôme's Proenza Schouler for Chroma Eyeshadow Palette. It's the exact product that makeup artist Jenn Streicher used on Moore's eyes, lips, and cheeks. And the secret behind her frizz-free waves? Believe it or not, it's air-drying with Garnier’s Anti-Humidity Smoothing Milk.
Nancy from Stranger Things clearly knows a thing or two about glamour. For the 2018 Emmys, the actress stepped out wearing her hair in Old Hollywood waves, courtesy of the new ghd Platinum+ Styler, and glimmering gold eye makeup, along with a hydrated, peach pout, thanks to eos Crystal in Hibiscus Peach.
Baby blue eyeshadow is back and way better than it was in the ‘80s. Just ask Issa Rae, who gave the pastel color a go (along with blue eyeliner and lots of mascara) at the Emmy Awards. Taking a matchy-matchy approach, she picked a shade from the Covergirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Palettes in Dazed that perfectly matched her blue jumpsuit.
For her hair, hairstylist Felicia Leatherwood created a three-dimensional bun and kept it in place with a spritz of Living Proof Style Lab Flex Hairspray.
Kristin Bell conquered two beauty classics at the 2018 Emmy Awards - an elegant, flyaway-free bun with a smoke show eye makeup look. The smoky eye was created by makeup artist Amy Oresman, who actually used colors from the JOAH Birthday Suit: Eyeshadow Palette, a product that costs less than $10 at CVS.
Biel went with an all-around romantic vibe for her 2018 Emmys beauty look. Her hairstylist Adir Abergel styled her hair in loose, soft waves which The Sinner star paired with a berry-stained lip.
Abergel gave Biel's waves a piecey, effortless finish by spraying the ends of her hair with Virtue's Refresh Dry Shampoo for extra volume and texture.
The Game of Thrones star nailed two major fall beauty trends at the Emmys: matte, stained-red lips and the bob.
Christie's makeup artist Stoj used three Charlotte Tilbury products to get the perfect vampy lip. First Stoj lined her lips with Lip Cheat Sheet Liner in Savage Rose. Next, a coat of Hollywood Lips in Liaison was applied using the liquid lipstick's doe-foot applicator. For dimension, Stoj added the shade Screen Siren to the center of the actress' lip.
Tracee Ellis Ross
If anyone were to convince us to try orange eye makeup, it’s Tracee Ellis Ross. Instead of taking the expected route by wearing a nude lip, the Black-ish star went with matte fuchsia. And yes, the color matched her dress perfectly.
It turns out that Ross's orange eyeshadow isn't actually an eyeshadow at all. Her makeup artist Lisa Storey dabbed Charlotte Tilbury's Hot Lips Lipstick in Tell Laura on the actress' eyelids with her finger.
There’s no better place than an award show red carpet to debut a new set of bangs. Just ask Michelle Dockery, who added soft, piece-y fringe to her look. As for her makeup, the star kept things simple and subtle.
Millie Bobby Brown
Even though the Stranger Things star was born in 2004, she mastered one of the biggest early 2000s beauty trends on the red carpet: the flippy lob. Rosy-pink lipstick and blush completed her look.
Tiffany Haddish wowed on the Emmys red carpet with a high ponytail and an absolutely perfect cat eye. Never have we ever been so motivated to ace the eyeliner skill.
A center part, groomed and full brows, and a glossy lip. It's the beauty trio that made Emilia Clarke's Emmys beauty look unforgettable.
Taraji P. Henson
The theme of the night? Whimsical fairytale. Hairstylist Tym Wallace applied the Suave Professionals Captivating Curls Mouse Cream to Henson's hair to define the curls before diffusing and pulling the hair into a low messy braid. For her makeup, Henson went with a purple shadow and a matching lip.
Evan Rachel Wood
The Westworld star showed up to the 2018 Emmys wearing a hairstyle that Season 1 Dolores would love. TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist John D. fastened her brunette hair in a low bun that was accessorized with flowers. The ultra-femme hair was balanced out with a deep, vampy lip, courtesy of Burt’s Bees Liquid Lipstick in Wine Waters.
Moss's Emmys beauty look is nothing like the soft, rosy monochromatic makeup she wore last year. Her makeup artist Daniel Martin switched things up by using Dior's 5 Couleurs Rouge En Diable in Volcanic and Devilish to create the perfect tangerine eye, and paired it with a bright red lip courtesy of Dior's Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge Lipstick in Ultra Star. For an even base, he prepped her skin with Honest Beauty's Everything Matte Primer.
You can't go wrong with a red lip on the red carpet. Case in point: Bronsnahan's matchy-matchy dress and lipstick moment. The exact shade her makeup artist Lisa Aharon used? Chantecaille's Lip Veil in Tiger Lily.
Brewer paired her flower-adorned hair with an equally ethereal makeup look. Her makeup artist Jenna Kristina used a mix of Giorgio Armani Beauty's Eye Tints in 11 and 12 on her eyelids and applied bronzer in her crease for warmth. Armani's Rouge d'Armani Matte Lipstick in 600 tied the look together.
As for her hair, stylist Mara Roszak prepped it by running John Frieda's Frizz Ease Original Effects 6 Serum through the ends to instantly get rid of frizz.
