Decked out in head-to-toe Dior, The Queen’s Gambit‘s Anya Taylor-Joy stunned on the 2021 Emmys red carpet, and the contrast of her peaches-and-cream complexion with her bold red lip and platinum updo had heads turning. What a statement! Here, we’ve got the full breakdown of the nominee’s beauty look from one of the leaders of her glam squad.
According to celebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell, the inspiration for Taylor-Joy’s look came from her Dior Haute Couture gown. “I kept her eyes soft and classic to complement the pale yellow gown, and chose a bright-red lip, which perfectly complemented her yellow opera coat and jewels.”
After prepping Taylor-Joy’s porcelain skin with Dior Capture Totale C.E.L.L. Energy Super Potent Serum, next up was Capture Dreamskin Care & Perfect, a velvety emulsion that should be applied as the last step in a skin-care routine to make your makeup look even better. “For her base, I used the Dior Forever Skin Glow #0N, Forever Skin Correct #1N and the new Forever Cushion Powder #010 Fair,” says Eisdell. “Then I used the Backstage Contour Palette for dimension and applied the Rouge Blush #361 Millefiori [a limited-edition pink powder] for a bit of color to her cheeks.”
On the eyelids, Eisdell applied Diorshow Mono Couleur Couture #530 Tulle and #480 Poncho. “Next, I coated both her top and bottom lashes with Diorshow Mascara #090 Pro Black.” Finally, she defined the actress’s brows with Diorshow Brow Styler #011 Blonde.
And last but not least, all of you beauty-obsessives can probably guess which iconic red lip color Taylor-Joy is wearing from the House of Dior: #999. “I created a statement red lip with Dior Contour #080 Red Smile and Rouge Dior Ultra Care Liquid #999 to complete her look.” Not only is this liquid lip color a 2020 NewBeauty Award winner, but what makes it special is its key ingredient of flower oil, which lets it feel soft and comfortable on the lips, whereas most liquid matte lip colors feel drying. And did we mention it also lasts up to 12 hours?
