Shop these exact beauty products the stars used to prep for the Emmys 

The stars of the small screen were out in force for the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles and boy did they bring their beauty A-game.

The red carpet glamour was pleasantly fitting for the event, with casual, understated looks finally left at home in favour of fresh, modern beauty statements.

A red lip here, a bombshell blowdry there, and all was well in La-La land, as glam teams worked overtime to prepare their superstar clients.

What’s useful for us mere mortals of course is that those glam teams also have their own social media, and are quick to share the products, tips and techniques used on the day. It means we know who wore what lipstick  and exactly which glowy foundation was used to prep the flawless features of the stars grabbing the headlines.

Here’s the inside scoop on the key products used to create our favourite looks, and what to add to your shopping lists in order to recreate a Hollywood-worthy look.

Amanda Seyfried’s rosy lipstick

The Dropout star bought some much admired shimmer and shine to the red carpet in her Armani Privé gown.  Winner of the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie award, we particularly loved her softly shimmering lilac eye makeup paired with a pretty raspberry pink lipstick.

Seyfried’s makeup artist Genevieve Herr revealed to InStyle she used Lancôme’s Hypnôse 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in Reflet D’Améthyste and Lancôme’s L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick in 264 Peut Être. “I complimented the dress by choosing a similar eye color; it looked like the dress shade came directly from my eyeshadow palette,” she says.

Hairstylist Renato Campora used Matrix Total Results Instacure Anti-Breakage Porosity Spray Vavoom hair spray on her sleek low bun.

Issa Rae’s beautiful bronzer

Emmy nominee for lead actress in a comedy series for comedy Insecure,  Issa Rae wore a sleek bob with her striking Sergio Hudson dress. To top it off, the star wore a full face of E.l.f. Cosmetics, a red carpet favourite despite its affordable price tag. Makeup artist Joanna Simkin shared she used a combination of Hydrating Camo Concealer and Halo Glow Setting Powder to perfect skin, finished with a sweep E.l.f.’s ever popular Putty Bronzer.

Selena Gomez’s flawless foundation

The star, whose Hulu series Only Murders In The Building was nominated for Outstanding Comedy series, graced the red carpet with a more elegant look than we’ve seen before. Her white beaded Celine halter neck gown was complemented with softly tonal makeup from Gomez’s own Rare Beauty makeup line.

Makeup artist Melissa Murdick used Rare Beauty’s Light Liquid Luminizer Highlight to the high points of the face to build the luminosity, followed by a spritz of face mist. “All of this goes underneath foundation because that sets the stage for a glow that looks like it’s coming from within, rather than sitting on top and super shimmery,” Murdick told Vogue.  After, Murdick set the T-zone with a bit of loose powder. For her creamy nude lip, Murdick applied Rare Beauty’s lip liner in shade Talented beneath a peach-hued lipstick in Humble, with a  bit of gloss in the center of her lip.

Alexandra Daddario’s glowing skin

American Actress Alexandra Daddario, of the hit show White Lotus, bought a little bit of Kiwi to the red carpet by choosing to prep her skin with local brand Emma Lewisham. According to a Lewisham rep, Alexandra works with LA-based celebrity makeup artist Lottie Stannard who had heard about Emma Lewisham’s products through mutual friends in Australia. Stannard used a combination of products for Daddario’s face but we’re particularly taken with the way she combined the Illuminating Day Crème with Supernatural Face Oil on her exposed back and arms for a gentle, all-over glow.

Elle Fanning’s bold liner

Elle Fanning, nominated for her role playing Catherine The Great in TV series The Great, wore a retro-style gown created for her by The Great‘s costume designer, Sharon Long. Fanning chose a Grace Kelly-style beauty look to complement, by makeup artist Erin Ayanian Monroe. Using makeup by L’Oreal Paris the look included a dramatic eyeliner with L’Oreal Paris Infallible Grip Liner in Black as a base and a touch of Colour Riche Mono Eye Shadow in Noir Cest Noir smudged over the top and winged out to the sides.

Zendaya’s nude lipstick

The Euphoria star swept into the Emmy’s in sophisticated Valentino gown, but kept things young and playful with a loose hair look and fresh, minimal makeup. The face of Lancôme’s Idôle fragrance naturally wore the French makeup house, applied by makeup artist Sheika Daley.

Daley used Lancôme’s new Teint Idole Ultra Wear Care & Glow Foundation with All Over Concealer on Zendaya’s skin and L’Absolu Rouge Cream Lipstick in 118 French Cœur on her lips with Juicy Tubes ‘Hallucination’ over top in the center of the lip.
