Celebrity stylist, Oscar Blandi created Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ red carpet look last night for the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards and I have to say, she looks fabulous.“Elaine” from Seinfeld is one of my all-time favorite TV characters and I always enjoy seeing Julia on the red carpet.
HOW TO GET THE LOOK:
STEP 1: Prep damp hair with Oscar Blandi Jasmine Protein Mist. ($18 on Sephora.com)
STEP 2: Apply Oscar Blandi Volumizing Spray from roots to ends to add volume. ($18 on Sephora.com)
STEP 3: Apply Oscar Blandi Wave Enhancing Spray from mid-length to ends to create a foundation for natural looking waves. ($18 on Sephora.com)
STEP 4: Blowout hair focusing on lifting the roots for volume, accentuating the natural side part.
STEP 5: Take a 3 inch barrel curling iron and hold it vertically. Starting just above the chin, curl the hair in small sections, keeping the crown smooth so waves cascade around the shoulder.
STEP 6: Finish entire look with Oscar Blandi Lacca Hairspray for volume and hold. ($23 on Sephora.com)
So it just so happens that Mary-Louise Parker is one of my favorite actresses and I was super excited when I got the makeup scoop on how to achieve her look at the 2009 Emmy’s tonight.
Stepping onto the red carpet in a single strapped, deep purple Zac Posen dress – Mary-Louise Parker was ready to shine at the Emmy’s! Tina, Maybelline makeup artist, was inspired by the deep purple and indigo tones in Mary-Louise’s dress, and her gorgeous gunmetal grey accessories. To play up the colors in Mary-Louise’s dress, Tina brought out her best features with a dramatic yet classic smoky eye, blushing pink cheeks and nude lips.
Face: Because Mary-Louise has beautiful porcelain skin, Tina kept her face looking pristine by applying Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse in Classic Ivory – with touches of Maybelline New York Dream Mousse Concealer in Light under the eyes and to the tops of the cheeks to give a contoured look.
Cheeks: To compliment her ivory skin, Tina brushed on Maybelline New YorkMineral Power Naturally Luminous Blush in Gentle Pink to the apples of the cheeks to give the look of a soft natural flush.
Eyes: Tina’s inspiration for Mary-Louise’s entire look was the gorgeous opal-toned smoky eye she created with Maybelline New York Expert Wear Stylish Smokes in Amethyst Smokes. Tina used all four shades in the palette to play up her eyes and add drama; thedeep purples complemented her creamy skin and dark hair. She then followed with Maybelline New York Line Stiletto Liquid Eyeliner in Blackon the upper and lower lash lines. To showcase the gorgeous jewel tones of the shadows, Tina only applied one coat of Maybelline New YorkPulse Perfection Vibrating Mascarain Very Black. Pulse Perfection
Lips:For a barely-there, neutral lip, Tina lined the entire mouth with Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Liner in Toast. She then followed up with Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipstick inNearly There.
Body: To complete the look, a soft dusting of Maybelline New YorkMineral Power Illuminator in Nude was brushed along her collar bones, arms and legs for a red carpet glow.
