From a subtle, skinny strip of white eyeliner to brighten to full-on bright-blue eyeshadow, these eight Hollywood A-listers chose to make their eyes the focus at tonight’s 74th annual Emmy Awards.
Nominated for five awards tonight for her roles as writer and producer on A Black Lady Sketch Show, Robin Thede looked gorgeous in a turquoise gown with matching eyeliner solely on her bottom lash line for a head-turning statement.
Celebrity makeup artist Allan Avendano made Ricci’s eyes pop using a mix of shimmery bronze tones. The actress is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Yellowjackets.
Celebrity makeup artist Sheika Daley used Lancôme Le Crayon Khol Eyeliner in shade Blanc along the Euphoria actress’s bottom lash line and waterline. This eye-brightening move added some drama to Zendaya’s classic makeup look at tonight’s show, where she is the youngest woman to ever be nominated in a producing category as an executive producer.
To give the West Side Story actress’s eyes a bright and feminine splash of color, makeup artist Andréa Tiller used Lancôme’s Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in Reflet D’Améthyste, a range of five shades of purple.
“I always try to get inspiration for the makeup from the dress,” says makeup artist Hung Vanngo of the Ozark actress’s velvet Gucci dress. “We decided to focus on the eye and partner it with a soft lip. She looked sensational. To reflect the rich velvety texture of Julia’s dress, I used the new CHANEL Les 4 Ombres Tweed Limited-Edition Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in Tweed Cuivré by applying it with my fingers for a more intense effect, especially for its shimmer.”
Makeup artist Deja Smith used a beautiful shade of green eyeliner on Laverne Cox to bring a little hint of sultry color to her Madonna-inspired black-and-white dress.
The Saturday Night Live comedian stuns in vibrant purple eyeshadow that complements her monochromatic look and floor-length Tarik Ediz gown.
The Nailed It! actress and comedian Nicole Byer rocked bright blue eyeshadow to match her two-piece blue ensemble, which she jokingly told Laverne Cox on the E! red carpet, was inspired by a tube of Crest toothpaste.
