Snag Claire Danes’ Emmys Smoky Eye with Laura Mercier

By  September 23, 2012

Haute Hollywood mama-to-be, Claire Danes, had all eyes on her on the Emmy’s red carpet in a mustard Lanvin dress that was an “easy” and “pretty” way to show off her burgeoning baby bump. While we loved the dress, we adored the sultry smoky eye look! We go the run down on how to pull it off ourselves from Laura Mercier Global Artistry Director, Matin Maulawizada, who described the look as a “casual nod to old Hollywood glamour.”


Starting with the face, Matin enhanced Danes’ natural glow with Laura Mercier’s Suprême Foundation in Sunny Beige before dotting away any imperfections with Secret Camouflage in SC-3. Matin then created a “healthy flush using bright pink blush” by applying Crème Cheek Color in Oleander on the apples of the cheeks and then setting the face with Loose Setting Powder in Translucent. For the fierce eye, Matin define the eye rims with the Laura Mercier Eye Pencil in Extreme Black before lining with the Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Gold to set off her dress. For added drama, Matin applied the Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Burnished Copper and Sequin Eye Colour in Black Ice and skipped the mascara. For a sexy nude pout, Matin layered the lips with the Lip Pencil in Praline and the Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Angelic.
