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. 

10. Edie Falco

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.

9. Mayim Bialik

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..

Billboard Music Awards 2014: Beauty Roundup

The Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) were last night and the celebs that DID attend were representing in their hair and makeup realness. So in no particular order, here are my beauty winners from last night:

J Lo:

Before the awards..

After the awards.

J Lo cleaned out last night, and rightly so. I love what she did for her video for I Luh Ya Papi, and furthermore I can’t stop singing it. She looks fantastic. I love the sixties high half-up pony, complimented by big big lashes, gold and black eyeshadows, a nude glossy lip and perfectly arched brows. 

Kelly Rowland:

People had mixed reactions to her outfit, but you can’t fault her hair and makeup here. That matte cobalt blue eyeshadow with her nude gloss and golden glowing skin works perfectly with that short choppy hairstyle and caramel highlights. Seriously though, I need to know where that eyeshadow is from. 

Amber Rose:

Mrs Khalifa is looking FIYAHH. I LOVE the lips, although those sunglasses might possibly be verging a little to far towards the V Stiviano vizer..

Image

But I think/hope she’s being slightly tongue in cheek. Both of them. 

The Jenners

Image

I think Kendall and Kylie looked the best last night. There’s no denying those two have style and the Kardashian looks, but with a bit more self awareness than the older sisters. 

Image

Kendall looked high fashion glam, with understated makeup to match her sleek look. Again with the golden/peachy tones that compliment her skin tone and the Kardashian lashes that could practically take someones eye out. 

Image

Kyle looked neo-grunge and edgy with her new blue dip dye, and again understated makeup because the hair really says it all. Kylie has my favourite eyebrows of the whole family and even though her lips tend to be over-lined, I over-line the hell out of my lips so do you, girl. 

Ke$ha (yes really)

Image

I am never normally a fan of Ke$ha’s beauty looks, like ever, but I actually really like this one. I love the pink hair chalk which looks great with her light blonde. 

Image

And I really like that she is using false lashes on her lower lashes. I think people underplay their lower lashes generally, and I like it when someone highlights them. With her big ol lashes, she has left the rest of her makeup natural and she actually looks really pretty. I even like that gold tooth. I mean, it’s Ke$ha, she couldn’t have gone completely classy. And I like the subtle nod to her ‘wilder’ side.

And finally, Carrie Underwood:

Image

That tan though! Let’s all just take a minute to appreciate that tan. 

And her neon coral lip compliments it perfectly. Her eyes are smoked and lashed out to chron and although it may be a bit too much with a bold lip as well, on their own they work. 

So those of my choices who didn’t win anything last night, don’t be down-hearted because some random unknown beauty blogger thinks your makeup artists did a great job! (Y)
