Phew! This week really started off with a bang! Still hot off of the 2014 MTV VMAs, Monday proved to be another beauty-filled night to remember. This year’s award makeup looks took a softer approach with copper and slate smoky eyes. Lips were left bare with softly bitten hues and shine, while red lips paved the way for classic yet modern hairstyles. Nail art is still here to stay, but with more neutral and subtle accents of golds and pinks. Read on to find out which products were used and how to re-create these looks at home!
Neutral Nail Art
According to nail art pros at MARS The Salon, celebs like Sarah Hyland and Kerry Washington accessorized couture gowns with natural nude and gold accents to add that ‘something extra’ for the red carpet. Breaking Bad’s Betsy Brandt wore a creamy pale pink shade in Red Carpet Manicure Candid Moments, while Zooey Deschanel’s nails were painted in L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish I Pink I’m in Love (electric pink nail art tape was used 3/4 of the way down the nail in a horizontal line).
Game of Thrones Edge
The Game of Thrones ladies rocked loose waves and smoky makeup with an edge. According to Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist Marcus Francis, Natalie Dormer had to shave the side of her head for her role in Mockingjay Part 1 and 2. Yet for the Emmys he thought to have soft, polished waves to keep the look feeling young.
He added Suave Professionals Volumizing Root Boost Spray from roots to ends, followed with Suave Professionals Natural Infusion Strengthening Light Leave-In Cream with Awapuhi Ginger applied on mid shaft through ends. He proceeded to blow-dry with a large vented round brush and make a clean center part. Using a 3/4 inch curling iron, he wrapped small sections of hair from roots to ends. He sprayed Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Light Hold Hairspray on the entire head, and then let the curls set for 10-minutes before brushing out. Some Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Weightless Dry Shampoo gave a little fluff to the hair for added movement.
The non-blonde Lena Headey went for a modern Audrey Hepburn look with an edge. Her new short haircut was the perfect foundation. Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend started by applying a few drops of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment to her damp hair. Next, he sprayed Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray all over and blow-dried while scrunching with hands. No brushes allowed! On dry hair he took a small amount of Dove Frizz-Free Shine Cream Serum, and then raked it through her hair to give it tons of shine and piecey-ness.
Blondes of all shades ruled the red carpet! Kristen Wiig played up her short hair by adding soft texture with Suave Professionals Natural Infusion All Day Body Leave-In Foam with Seaweed and a curling iron to create natural movement and texture.
Lena Dunham shocked all with her platinum bowl haircut. Hair Stylist Rheanne White began with damp hair, combining a gel and serum in order to create a bit of hold but maintain movement throughout the look. She then sectioned the hair with clips and used a T3 Anti-Gravity 2” Barrel Brush to blow-dry the hair with the T3 Evolution LongLife dryer, focusing on drying towards the front. Starting mid-shaft to the ends, Rheanne then used the T3 Fahrenheit 450 Flat Iron to flat-iron the hair while creating a beveled look.
Jessica Lange’s blonde locks were elegant and bouncy with a French blow-out. Hairstylist Andy LeCompte applied Wella Professionals Extra Volume Mousse on damp hair at the roots, then blow-dried using a large round brush. To set the waves, he wrapped 2” sections of hair around Velcro rollers and removed after 15-minutes. Some back-combing and tousling of the strands were set with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray to prevent flyaways. A misting of Wella Professionals LuxeOil Light Oil Keratin Protection Spray added extra shine, texture and movement.
Julia Roberts has never looked better (and younger) than with her new honey blonde shade with plenty of face-flattering highlights. A lighter hair color called for sunkissed cheeks, like Lancôme Blush Subtil Palette in Nectar Lace to compliment her navy beaded dress.
Schwarzkopf Professional Brand Ambassador Michael Dueñas gave Orange Is The New Black star Taryn Manning finger-like waves by applying 2 golf ball sizes of OSiS+ Grip. He then spritzed on OSiS+ Session Label Flexible Hold Hairspray to the roots and blow-dried with a vent brush, focusing on adding volume at the scalp. He then created a deep side part, just past the mid eyebrow, and started with the heavy side of the head, taking a one-inch section from the crown to hairline and split that into one-inch sections. Using a half-inch rod curling iron, he curled each section towards the face and pinned until cool.
Copper & Slate Eyes
Soft smoky eyes in copper and gray shades were all the rage! Makeup Artist Maki Ryoke used the Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette on Kate Mara in The Rock Chick for a highly pigmented, mesmerizing smoky eye with the use of 4 slate-colored shades. For a sexy, strong cat-eye, Charlotte Tilbury Rock ‘N’ Kohl Eye Pencil in Bedroom Black was applied around the entire eye, including the waterline. To further accentuate and enhance, Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick was used to accentuate the lash line.
Makeup artist Tina Turnbow created an “ethereal and angelic” look for Taylor Schilling with sultry, mysterious copper eyes. First, Turnbow lined the inner rim of the top lash line with Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Brown Copper, smudging the color out slightly. Next, she brushed Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Cocoa onto the back of her hand and applied it with a fluffy brush to give a wash of color over the eyelids. She swept the shade out from the crease and applied a little to the outer corner of Schilling’s eyes to elongate and provide depth. She then added Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Cognac on the lids and along the brow bones to give them a slight pop of copper color.
Global Celebrity Makeup Artist Jamie Greenberg gave Kaley Cuoco a beautiful, fresh look to compliment her bold and girly pink dress. Jamie started by applying Tom Ford Foundation to Kaley‘s face as a base. She then added mark. Touch & Glow All Over Shimmer Cubes on Kaley‘s cheeks.
For a soft glow, Julianne Hough relied on NARS Cosmetics 413 BLKR Illuminator
for a modern-day Grace Kelly look. Orange is the New Black star Uzo Aduba went for a classic and timeless makeup look by adding a few drops of liquid bronzer into a face moisturizer, massaging it into skin. Once skin felt supple, a sheer layer of CARGO_HD Picture Perfect Pore Refining Primer was applied all over the face using a bronzer brush with a semi-matte foundation.
Sofia Vergara and January Jones took a classic approach with red lips and effortless hair. Celeb Hair Guru Kylee Heath started Sofia’s hair look off with a quick washing with Head & Shoulders Smooth & Silky for a flake-free part and 24-hour frizz control. She then created a straight center part on damp hair, and blow-dried the top front section (away from the face) with a boar bristle round brush. With a 1 ½ inch curling iron, she added a slight bend to the shorter front layers, finishing by spraying with light hairspray for extra hold.
Next, Sofia’s makeup artist complemented her Art Deco style with a retro lip and a fresh modern eye. The focus was really about the lip, so she needed a long-lasting lip product, like COVERGIRL Outlast All Day Lipcolor in Ever-Reddy for its super-pigmented punch of color and plenty of shine.
Hairstylist Renato Campora created a modern and updated hair look with uneven bangs for January Jones. Hair was prepped with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Mega Firm Hold Gel throughout the hair to create texture and combat frizz. Before rough-drying hair, a spritz of Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Heat Protect & Shine Spray was added for additional texture and body. Hair was then split into 2 sections; starting on the left side of the head right above the ear, one section was twisted all the way down to the neck. This was repeated on the right side with the other section. Next, 2 twists were fastened at the nape of the neck with a hair tie. To finish, a spritz of Vidal Sassoon Pro Series ColorFinity Finishing Hairspray locked in the look.
Pretty In Pink
Celebrity Makeup Artist Pati Dubroff dubbed Girls star Allison William’s Emmy makeup look “pretty in pink with a flash.” Pink on the lids, cheeks and lips were subdued with a dash of bright yellow gold on the inner corner of her eyes, which complimented the bright yellow grosgrain belt on her dress.

Makeup Artist Jorjee Douglass used Charlotte Tilbury products to create a fun, youthful look for Zooey Deschanel. Instead of Zooey‘s usual coral blush, Jorjee applied Charlotte Tilbury Blush in Love Is The Drug for a subtle pop of pink she needed to match her dress. Skin was hydrated with Charlotte’s Magic Cream to reduce any signs of dullness before hitting the red carpet, transforming tired skin.
E! News Correspondent, Catt Sadler wore custom LashDip 24K GoldDip Highlighted Sable and Fox Lashes, a professional line of lash enhancement products, applied by trained and Certified LashDip Artists, as well as an award-winning collection of retail cosmetics. The professional treatment begins with the gentle application of baby-fine silk inserts to add length and volume to the natural lash line, offering restorative benefits for sparse, brittle lashes.
