Get the Look: Rashida Jones’ Dark Makeup at the Emmy Awards

September 26, 2011

Rashida Jones stepped onto the red carpet at the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards looking striking and elegant. Her red carpet look was created with the help of Makeup Artist Jo Strettell for Maybelline New York.  Jo was inspired by Rashida’s vivacious personality and created a look using Maybelline New York’s latest products. To complement her dusty pink dress, Jo kept Rashida’s makeup classic and pretty. A dramatic eye and vibrant lip added unexpected edge and modernized the look. 

For Face:

To even complexion and create a natural base, prep the skin with Maybelline New York Fit Me! Foundation in Honey Beige.

On the apples of cheeks, use Maybelline New York Fit Me! Blush in Medium Mauve, a dusty pink blush to complement the rosy color of Rashida’s gown. Next, contour and highlight with a shimmery powder.

For Eyes:

Jo used Maybelline New York Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black to create a glamorous eye look.

Dot the liner between areas of the top and bottom lashes.

Next, to create the illusions of denser lashes, run the liner along the top and bottom lashlines.

To set the gel liner and line the entire inner rim of the eye, use Maybelline New York Eye Studio Master Drama Cream Pencil in Coal Commander.

Apply a shimmery cream shadow to the inner corners of the eyes and as a highlight over the brow bone.

Finish the dramatic eye look with several coats of Maybelline New York The Falsies by Volum’ Express Mascara in Blackest Black.

For Lips:

Add rich color and glamorous shine to the lips with Maybelline New York Color Sensational High Shine Lipcolor in Dazzling Plum – the perfect product to achieve Rashida’s deep vixen pout!
