The 2010 Emmys: Simply Stunning

It's the morning after the 2010 Emmy Awards, and the internet has been buzzing all night long over this year's fashion & makeup hits and misses.

This year, simple and elegant makeup was gracing the faces of some of today's most gorgeous ladies. After pouring over tons of pics, I think the most outstanding makeup has to go to Rutina Wesley. First of all, her skin is AH-MAZE-ING! I mean, just LOOK at her!
 This bright pop of color on her face is the perfect compliment to her dress, which is not a dress just anyone could pull off, but she worked it! Maybe it's because I'm used to the barely there makeup look of her character Tara on 'True Blood', but this whole look just grabbed my attention from the start. The only thing I think is missing from this look is a slightly stronger brow. Going just a bit heavier on the brow color would have been a beautiful balance to her luscious lashes and bold lips. If you love this lip color, go pick it up for yourself and create your own Emmy's look. The lipstick Rutina wore is Nars Vesuvio Pure Matte Lipstick.

Next up is another one of my favorite vampire girls, Nina Dobrev. Her eye makeup is smokey perfection.
To create this eye look, use a light golden shade all over the lid. Slowly build definition in the crease and along the outer lash line with soft chocolate shadow. Go over that with a bronze shade and blend blend blend! Line upper lashes and along the waterline of the lower lashes with either a deep chocolate or black liner, depending on the effect you are going for. Smudge slightly. Add 2 coats of black mascara. Finish the look by adding just a touch of a shimmery pearl color to the inside corners of your eyes, to give them a pretty pop.

Another look that stole the show was Claire Danes.
 Her skin is absolutely glowing. You just cannot beat the look of flawless skin! It's the best accessory there is, so be sure to take good care of yours. Wear an SPF daily and moisturize!!! To get the look of Claire's rosy cheeks, sweep on your favorite summer shade of pink blush to the apples of your cheeks. Don't be too heavy handed, as you want your skin to glow softly...not like a neon sign! The perfect pop of color that I'm loving right now? MAC Sheertone Blush in 'Pinch Me'. This color will look great on just about any skin tone. To finish off that glow, add just a touch of a shimmery highlighter along the top of the cheekbone.
