Straight from the 61st annual Emmy Awards comes Lead Actress nominee Christina Applegate’s gorgeous red-carpet look. Nominated for “Samantha Who,” Physicians Formula’s celebrity makeup artist Joanna Schlip was inspired by Christina’s dramatic, navy sweeping gown by designer Basil Soda when creating her show-stopping look.
The vintage glamor of her amazing navy blue gown called for simple makeup that still made a statement. With her hair pulled back in a chic chignon, Joanna was able to play up Christina’s eyes with a sexy retro smolder, while keeping her skin fresh and lips softly pink. Like the dress, Christina’s makeup exuded a Brigitte Bardot 60’s cool, with a modern twist. She looked absolutely stunning!

Skincare: To create a radiant glow, Joanna prepped Christina’s skin with three steps: First she cleansed with Clarins Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser. She then applied Clarins Multi-Active Day Lotion SPF 15, followed with Clarins Beauty-Flash Balm 1.7 oz for smooth, hydrated, radiant skin.
Face: Since Christina has naturally beautiful skin, Joanna kept her face mostly bare with a light wash of Clarins True Radiance Foundation. She finished with a dusting of Physicians Formula 100% Natural Organic Wear Face Sculpting Trio in Sunkissed Organics.
Cheeks: For a natural but luminous flush, Joanna applied Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Blush & Highlighter in Sunkissed Glow on the apples of her cheeks, sweeping up to the hairline. The shimmering highlighter reflected the California sunlight on the red carpet, giving a healthy, peachy-pink glow.
Eyes: Joanna reflected the drama of Christina’s dress with a smoldering eye. Using the dark gray shade from Clarins Colour Quartet For Eyes in So Chic, Joanna gave a smoky depth to Christina’s green eyes. To add definition and drama, she applied Physicians Formula Eye Definer Felt-Tip Eye Marker in Ultra Black around the upper and lower lash line and also inside the wet line, then finished with three coats of Clarins ‘Wonder Perfect’ Mascara in Black.
Lips: For a soft, modern pink mouth, Joanna applied Clarins Lip Definer in Bay Rose, and then added a hint of gloss with Physicians Formula Plump Potion Needle-Free Plumping Lipstick in Pink Nude Potion.
