Of course by now you've read all about your favorite celebrity beauty looks from the Emmys red carpet, but I've been getting a lot of questions about my dress (since it had pockets) and beauty look that I have to share it with you. Getting ready for this big moment was a collaborative effort between the Dove team, my hairstylist and makeup artist and of course, myself. I knew exactly what direction I wanted my hair and makeup to go in for my Emmys beauty look, which was influenced by my glamourous Monique Lhuillier gown.
I woke up at 7am feeling like a child on Christmas morning (and I'm not a morning person), hopped in the shower and took the one shower challenge with new Dove Body Wash. I'm sure you saw the video I shot in my previous post on the new formula, which was upgraded and now has a richer lather, but is still a mild cleanser. I can't get enough. The promise is 'softer, smoother skin after just one shower,' just what I seek.
At 8am my makeup artist was at my door and then with me on the carpet for the day. The look: Audrey Hepurn inspired. Yep, you got it – old Hollywood glamour. "To balance out such a glamorous gown, I made sure to keep the hair and makeup fresh and youthful," she remarked. Think Taylor Swift. Not that I wanted to look like her, but she's a celeb who can pull off old school Hollywood without looking like the mother of the bride. "For the makeup, I didn't over line the eyes or lips and kept all of it soft and smudged. With the hair, it's all about texture and making sure the updo doesn't look too perfect."
So what do you think of my Emmys beauty look? You can wear it for any formal event. It was a fantastic experience and I'm so thankful!
