Get Taylor Schilling’s Emmy Makeup

Taylor Schilling

Apparently yellow is the new black! (Sorry, couldn’t help myself.)

Tonight at the Emmys, Orange Is The New Black star Taylor Schilling stunned on the red carpet in a yellow Stella McCartney dress. Her fresh frock called for a modern bohemian glamour look created by makeup artist Hung Vanngo.

Here are a few key steps that makeup artist Hung Vanngo used to create the look:

  • Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask was used to on the face and neck for 10 minutes to prep the skin by tightening and smoothing the skin while giving it extra radiance.
  • Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream was used generously on Taylor’s face and neck for the perfect amount of moisture. “The Magic Cream was also an excellent primer for the makeup.” Hung said.
  • Vanngo prepped Taylor’s eyes with the Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye Wand (launching on tomorrow) by using the wand around the eyes to give a lively and bright look.
  • Vanngo then applied a sheer layer of Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow all over the face, avoiding the t-zone area to give Taylor an extra dewy glow.
  • Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Youth-Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation in Shade 3 was used to even out Taylor’s complexion.
  • Vanngo then used Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher in Shade 2 for under the eyes areas, around the nose and to cover a few minor imperfections.
  • Vanngo used Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift to fill in and define the shape. “Taylor likes her brows full and well-groomed.” Hung explained.
  • Vanngo used CK One Color 100 Neutrals Redefined Powder Eyeshadow Palette on Taylor’s eyelids. First, the shade “Honest” was applied all over the upper and lower eye lids. Then, using shade “Impulsive” with a shading brush to apply mainly on the crease area to create depth to her eyes. He also used an eye liner brush, drawing a thin soft line with shade “Heartless” along her upper lash lines to define the eyes more.
  • Vanngo used two coats of Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes on the upper lashes and one coat on the lower lashes.
  • Vanngo used Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blush in Sex on Fire to bring out Taylor’s beautiful cheek bones, then he added the Charlotte Tilbury X Norman Parkinson Dreamy Glow Highlighter on top of the cheekbones, top of nose and the forehead. Hung loved using the Charlotte Tilbury X Norman Parkinson Dreamy Glow Highlighter and described the texture as “creamy and beautiful,” especially on Taylor’s complexion.
  • Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow was also applied with a large brush to give more dimension on Taylor’s face by shading around her jawline and forehead.
  • For lips, Vanngo used Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in 1975 Red, which is a beautiful coral red shade and added dimension to Taylor’s lips. Hung said, “We loved taking a classic idea for lips and making it modern.”
  • Before he applied the lipstick, he prepped her lips with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Magic, then lined her lips with Lip Cheat Pencil in Kiss ‘N’ Tell for the perfect pout.
  • To finish Taylor’s face, Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in Shade #2 Medium was applied only to Taylor’s t-zone, which worked great for the red carpet because of how finely milled the powder is.
  • Finally, since Taylor showed some skin, Vanngo used Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel Body all over Taylor’s limbs to give her a gorgeous, sultry glow. The Supermodel Body really made Taylor’s skin shimmer with a bronze contoured glow on the red carpet.

Once the look was complete, Hung said, “Taylor looked absolutely beautiful!”

I totally agree. Piper cleans up well!

Get Allison Williams’ Emmy Beauty Look (and peek inside her clutch!)

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals Like many of you out there, I live for awards season. I also live for finding out the beauty products that help make our favorite celebs look so darn pretty on the red carpet.

It’s no secret that I have an extreme crush on Brian Williams (he waved at me once – true story), so naturally I adore his daughter too. I thought she killed it last night at the Primetime Emmy Awards. Her glowing Emmy look was thanks in part to celeb makeup artist Pati Dubroff (and also thanks in part to the killer bone structure she received from her dad.) I got the scoop from Pati about the products and techniques she used to achieve this beautiful look.

“Allison had just returned from her summer vacation so her skin was sun-kissed,” she said. “We decided to go with a soft look. I dubbed this ‘pretty in pink with a flash’ – the pink is on the lid, the cheek and the lip, while the flash is a dash of bright yellow gold on the inner corner of her eyes which complimented the bright yellow grosgrain belt on her dress.”


Pati prepped the skin with tarte clean slate timeless smoothing primer in the t-zone to eliminate the need for powder. She then used a small amount of tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation SPF 15 in light medium honey.

“I wanted the sheer coverage so Allison’s freckles could show through,” said Pati.

She finished the skin using tarte park avenue princess bronzer to amp up the tan and tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in fearless on the apples of the cheeks for a pinky flush.

She defined her brows with tarte the brow architect brow shaper, liner and definer in medium-tan.

“I created the structured eyes with Pati Dubroff dream palette using ochre and raw to give matte structure and a soft tone in the crease and under the eye,” said Pati.

She then applied tarte smolderEYES Amazonian clay waterproof liner in golden beige in the center of the lid for a peachy pink base followed by Chanel Illusion D’ombre in Abstraction on top. On the inner corner of the eyes, Pati added a flash of NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Corcovado for a flash of bright yellow. At the base of the lash line Pati used tarte lights, camera, lashes precision longwear liquid eyeliner – with a touch of a light flick at the outer corner. She completed Allison’s eyes by coating the lashes in tarte lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara.

Pati created a soft but well-structured lip using tarte  LipSurgence matte lip tint in lucky with a touch of tarte Amazonian butter lipstick in golden pink layered on top.

Allison’s Gambattista Valli Couture sleeveless dress meant her body was on display too. Sometimes it’s easy to focus on the face and forget the rest of the skin, but Pati made sure she was glowing from head to toe!

“It’s just as important to make sure that the skin on her body looks as just as flawless as the skin on her face,” said Pati. “I used Jergens BB Body Skin Perfecting Cream in Medium to give a subtle radiant sheen and illuminate Allison’s skin.”

Allison packed her clutch full of the essentials to keep her look fresh all night! She selected tarte not so slick oil-absorbing blotting papers and the two tarte lippies Pati applied to keep on hand. Smart girl!



Get the Look: Rose Byrne’s Waves

65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

One thing is for sure – glam waves were prevalent on the Emmys Red Carpet last night. Allison Williams, Christina Hendricks, and Taylor Schilling all wore wavy ‘dos, but my fav waves of the night were Rose Byrne’s. The Insidious star owned this soft romantic look, created by John Frieda International Creative Consultant Harry Josh.

Inspired by an image of Bianca Jagger from the late 70’s/early 80’s, Josh gave Rose Byrne a modern and polished version of the wild waves. Read on to find out out to copy her coif!

Step 1 – Prep

  • Josh began by applying Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula ($9.99) to Rose’s wet hair. “Rose’s recent transformation from brunette to blonde was a drastic change for the hair, which can often cause more frizz and overall unruliness, so it was crucial that we start with this serum for better manageability,” said Josh.
  • Next, in order to add texture to prep the hair for the waves, Josh applied Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse ($6.99) throughout in order to create the texture needed for the waves, and blow-dried using his Pro Tools Pro Dryer 2000 ($300), using the wider nozzle to help build volume.

Step 2 – Style

  • Josh wrapped hair in Velcro rollers and allowed hair to set for 30 minutes.
  • Then, using a curling iron with a ¾ inch barrel, wrapped ¼ inch sections of hair around the iron horizontally and in the same direction and pinned each curl with a duckbill clip to set.

Step 3 – Perfect

Sarah Hyland’s Red Carpet Manicure on the Primetime Emmys Red Carpet

65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Arrivals

The aptly named Red Carpet Manicure LED gel polish shined on the Emmys Red Carpet tonight!

I dig the nail art that young Modern Family beauty Sarah Hyland was rocking on her fingertips. (She was also wearing the heck out of a wine hued lip and killer green gown.) She opted for a “negative space” look—having a natural or bare area of nail exposed somewhere between/within the polished area instead of a two-toned manicure. Celebrity Manicurist Christina Aviles used Red Carpet Manicure’s LED gel polish in “Haute Couture,” “Runway Red” and “Camera Shy” to design her nail look.

“Sarah co-designed her dress with Carolina Herrera and wanted to complement her dress with burgundy nails,” said Christina. “Once we sat down together, she let me know she really wanted to do something eye catching and art deco.”
