Christina Hendricks, Supporting Actress nominee for her role in “Mad Men,” was a red carpet knock-out at this year’s Emmy Awards. Hendricks played up her killer curves in a lilac chiffon Zac Posen gown, and her signature fire-red hair was the perfect frame for her makeup, created by celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali and inspired by Mia Farrow’s iconic character from “The Great Gatsby.”
Scali prepped the skin with Lancôme’s La Base Pro. To perfect Christina’s already luminous skin, she used Lancôme’s new Teint Miracle Lit-From-Within Makeup. “It has an amazing transparent quality that leaves the skin looking flawless and luminous without being shiny,” said Scali. “I applied it with a brush and then blended with my fingers.” Blending with her fingers heated up the foundation a bit, allowing for a seamless finish. Scali followed with Effacernes Concealer under the eyes, her “all time favorite concealer.”
For a fresh pop of color the celebrity makeup artist used Lancôme’s Blush Subtil Shimmer in Pink Pool on the apples of her cheeks. Dabs of Giorgio Armani Beauty’s Fluid Sheer #2 highlighted Christina’s cheekbones.
The eye shadow was mix of YSL’s Ombre Solo Eyeshadow in Cashmere Brown and Midnight Black. “I applied these all over her lid, under the bottom lashes and blended it out past her natural lash line to softly elongate the eye,” reported Scali.
To define and elongate the lash line, Scali lined the eyes with Lancôme’s Le Crayon Khôl in Black. “I used a touch of liner under her bottom lashes but smudged it for a softer look,” said Scali. For added depth, she used Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner in Noir at the very base of Hendrick’s lashes.
Several generous coats of Lancôme Définicils Waterproof Mascara in Black were used on the top and bottom lashes.
The actress’ lips were a mix of Lancôme lip colors for an effect that Vanessa described as “red with a little dash of pink.” A sheer coat of Color Design Matte Lipstick in Corset was topped by La Laque Fever Lipshine in Cyber Coral.
