Get Minka Kelly’s Emmy Look

Last night celebrity makeup artist, Matthew Vanleeuwen, created a gorgeous look for Emmy’s presenter Minka Kelly using tarte cosmetics.

The Inspiration: “Minka’s dress had this amazing 40s feel to it, so I wanted her makeup to be a modern, fashionable twist on that classic 40s look.” –Matthew Vanleeuwen

Complexion: First, he smoothed tarte’s smooth operator™ Amazonian clay illuminating serum all over to brighten Minka’s complexion. Then he blended tarte’s Amazonian clay full-coverage foundation in tan to even out her skin tone. He dusted tarte’s smooth operator™ micronized clay finishing powder under the eyes and down the nose to set her makeup and minimize shine, and brushed tarte’s smooth operator™ Amazonian clay finishing powder in bronze over her cheeks, chin, and forehead to add a soft contour.

Cheeks: He made her cheeks pop by dusting tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in blissful from the apples of her cheeks, up along her cheekbones.

Eyes: Vanleeuwen used shadows from tarte’s neutralEYES eye shadow palette volume II. He started by brushing matte taupe over the entire lids, blending it over the creases, and up and out onto the brow bones. Then he pressed shimmering soft peach onto the lids and into the lashlines. He added depth by blending matte plum from the outer corners of the creases to the middle of the lids. He defined her eyes by lining her lashlines with emphasEYES™ aqua-gel liner in black, and then going over the line with tarte’s multiplEYE™ clinically-proven lash enhancing liquid liner, and extending it just past her lashlines for a subtle winged effect. He finished with two coats of tarte’s lights, camera, lashes! clinically-proven mascara on upper lashes and a subtle coat on her lower lashes.

Lips: Vanleeuwen layered two colors to create Minka’s fresh berry pout. He used tarte’s LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in hope to add a natural,rosy-looking color, then finished with tarte’s LipSurgence™ lip luster in Pouty for an added dose of shine.
