We loved Kerry’s Washington’s smoky winged eye look from the Emmy’s so much we decided to have our makeup artists create their own version at our Dallas, TX location! This look is all about black smoky eyes, nude pink shimmery lips and soft blush, topped off with a classy and modern high ponytail.
Want to recreate Kerry Washington’s 2019 Emmys makeup look yourself? Here is how we did it!
We used Pink Perfect Pore Minimizing Primer by Erobian to prime the skin. This creates a base for a flawless complexion. Then we layered on Erobrian BB Creme to provide lightweight buildable coverage. Our artist used Jouer’s Soft Focus Hydrate + Set Powder in Light to set the look for a flawless finish. They highlighted the cheekbones with Stila’s Convertible Color Blush in Lillium and Kevyn Aucoin’s Glass Glow Face Liquid Highlighter.
To achieve the smoky eye look we used colors from the Jouer Essential Matte & Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette and Eyeko’s Black Magic Mascara. Using tape under the eyes is a great trick to create that winged look and keep eyeshadow from falling on the rest of the face. To define the eyebrows, we used Browgal’s Instatint Brow Gel in Medium.
This is a perfect look for an evening out on the town and will have you feeling like a fierce gladiator in no time! Blushington can help you get ready for your next event with dramatic and detailed looks like this one that are long lasting from the red carpet to the afterparty.
