Emmy Awards 2018: Best beauty looks
Best in TV show
You see them on your screens, but they really come alive on awards night. Tossing off the confines of occasionally dowdy period costumery, sometimes unflattering hair and makeup (think The Handmaids Tale) and hyper-realistic lighting, the women of television came to shine. There were no real makeup trends per se, but the brief for every makeup artist and hair stylist seemed to be polished and pretty. From the Barbie pink of Thandie Newton's shadow — how does this woman make the girlish shade look so haute? — to the restrained glamour of first-time nominee Jessica Biel's soft makeup, there were looks aplenty that could serve as everyday inspiration.
Center parts continued to be a donned, creating the ideal centrepiece for a beautiful makeup and eye-popping jewellery. Interestingly enough the décolletage played a key role, as many of the leading ladies who caught our eye, sported bare necks, focussing on soft skin and statement earrings to draw the eyes upwards. With so much skin on display — albeit a tasteful, television-appropriate amount — it was only apt that makeup artists focussed on achieving a flawless finish in this area. Makeup from the neck down was meticulously colour-matched and blended to supreme seamlessness and the Rihanna-inspired OTT sparkle was nowhere to be seen — it's not that kind of show.
