How To Get America Ferrera's Emmy's Makeup Look

How-To Get America Ferrera's Emmy's Makeup Look

Last night at the 2008 Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, Ugly Betty star America Ferrera arrived wearing a flattering and sophisticated black strapless taffeta dress and an elegant diamond necklace. Her hair was styled in soft, classical waves and her makeup was a complement and a nod to old Hollywood glamour.

Nars makeup artist Vanessa Scali described America's look as "simple, sophisticated and classic." It was inspired by "the 50's with an Audrey Hepburn eye, a Vargas mouth and a sheer, radiant face to make it modern and timeless." I happen to think she looks ravishing on the red carpet —sayonara ugly Betty and hello beautiful Betty!

To find out about what makeup products and colours America is wearing on her face, cheeks, eyes and lips,

.

  • FACE: To create this look, Vanessa wanted to keep America's base light and sheer to show off her flawless skin. With a brush, she used a little bit of Balanced Foundation in Fiji and Barcelona and then blended everything with her fingertips. Then, she applied a dab of concealer under the eyes.
  • CHEEKS: Next, Vanessa dusting a touch of Bronzing Powder in Casino to contour America's cheekbones. This was followed by a strike of Multiple Stick in Portofino (a cream blush) to the apples of the cheeks and then a light sweep of Translucent Powder. Lastly, she applied Orgasm Powder Blush for a touch of color and a subtle shimmer.
  • EYES: The goal for the eyes was creating an innocent, yet sophisticated look. First, a little bit of Multiple Stick in Copacabana was applied all over the lid. Then, the right side color in the All About Eve Duo Palette was used on top and under the bottom lashes. Next, the inside of the lower rims of the eyes were lined with a white pencil (Iceberg) to make them look bigger and the upper rims were lined with Moon Black. Lastly, lashes were curled and several coats of Black Orchid Mascarawere applied as a finishing touch.
  • LIPS: Since the lips were the main attraction for this look, they were designed to be bold and semi-matte. Vanessa applied Scarlet Empress Lipstick with a brush and skipped gloss and lip-liner.
