Emmys 2014 Beauty Roundup

Last night, the 66th Primetime Emmy awards, saw the coming together of some of Televisions biggest stars (even if they did forget about Broad City). I could fill a whole separate blog talking about the shows, winners and nominees (I am TV’s biggest fan) but I’ll just stick to my favourite hair and makeup looks of the night.

I thought Edie looked gorgeous last night. Her tan perfectly complimented her sunkissed highlights, and she kept it glam with some fluttery lashes and a nude lip. Very Flattering.

I love this grecian hair on Blossom – I mean Amy – I mean Mayim! 

8. Mindy Kaling

Even though The Mindy Project didn’t receive any nominations, Mindy still won in terms of beauty. The sixties beehive hair (always shiny) plus blushing pink cheeks and smokey eyes equal one beautiful Mindy. 

7. Christine Baranski

My personal favourite star of The Good Wife looked chic and classy last night. Her signature hair was as always coiffed to perfection and her makeup is glam but understated. 

6. Christina Hendricks

I love this boho hair with the sheer blushed lips and coppery smokey eyes. Nothing could look better with her hair and skin tone. She looks beautiful. 

5. Julie Bowen

Peng. I really like this edgy version of the classic bob. It looks fierce with her smokey eyes.

4. Keke Palmer

Keke’s hair and makeup is ON. POINT. I love the double nose piercings and the sleek long ponytail, plus the smokey cat eye to top it all off. 

3. Kerry Washington

This ombre grown out bob is everything! And who would have thought matte denim blue eyeshadow would go so well with an orange dress? I need to find out what eyeshadow her makeup artist used.

My beauty winner. The simple hair donut looks gorgeous with Haley’s blonde highlights. Plus we can see all of her beautiful face. Her eyebrows look full without looking fake, her lashes and golden brown eyeshadow on the upper outer corner of her lids accentuate her hazel eyes and her lipstick is the perfect ‘Kylie Jenner’ shade. This is my favourite look of the entire evening, bar one..

Half a Top Knot

Continuing the theme of 90s hairstyles that have come back in fashion, I present the half top knot:

All the cool kids are doing it. It’s pretty simple too:

1. Brush your hair and take the top section of hair that you want to tie and brush out all the knots

2. Tie it into a ponytail

3. Like with the space buns, twist the ponytail and wrap it round the base. 

4. Secure with another tie and pin any unruly bits. 

It looks great on these cool kids, however whenever I try it, it looks really unflattering. I know the point of the hairstyle isn’t to look ‘pretty’ but sometimes a girl wants to. So for a much more flattering look, albeit less 90s and more 60s, just do steps 1 and 2.

Less ‘trendy’ but way more flattering and pretty. 

Once you’ve followed steps 1 and 2, make sure the ponytail is secured high up with lots of volume and then just back comb the hell out of the rest of your hair for a classic pretty 60s look. Have a play around and see which style suits you best 🙂

 

Space Buns

I am so in love with the modern day revival of the 90s trend, Space Buns.

I think they’re cute, youthful and a perfect solution to a bad hair day (of which I have plenty)

They’re also pretty easy to do on long or short hair. In fact they might actually be easier with short hair because that makes for smaller buns whereas with long hair if you don’t wrap them tight enough you could end up looking like Princess Leia

tumblr_mefcl5W9Rt1qfve95o1_r1_500Oh, Liz.

To achieve the look,

1. Part your hair in the middle and brush out all the knots till it is as smooth as your can get it.

2. Brush your hair into two high pigtails.

3. Twist the hair and wrap it round the base of the pigtail, where the hair band is.

4. To secure, tie with another hair band.

5. You can secure them even more by pinning the base and pinning down any bits of hair that are trying to unravel.

Super cute. 

Go forth and have nineties fun.
