Get The Look: Claire Danes’ Sultry Emmys Makeup

October 3, 2012

Claire Danes’ stunning Emmys look was crowned by US Weekly as the “Best Easy Elegance”.

Laura Mercier’s International Artistry Director MATIN MAULAWIZADA created Claire’s makeup for the night, saying that “a seductive, smoky eye was our focus”.


For even, sheer coverage Matin used the new Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation ($59.00) in Sunny Beige on Claire.

He then concealed imperfections with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage ($49.00).

For a healthy flush he used bright pink blush – Laura Mercier Crème Cheek colour in Oleander ($35.00) on the apples of the cheeks.

He then set the face with Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent ($58.00).


Matin started by enhancing both eyes with Laura Mercier Black Extreme Eye Pencil ($30.00).

He then went over this line with Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Gold ($30.00) which picked up the yellow in Claire’s dress.

On the lids he used a mixture of Laura Mercier Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Burnished Copper and Laura Mercier Sequin Eye Colour in Black Ice ($35.00) to create a sultry intensity.


Claire’s gorgeous nude pout was created by layering the lips with Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Praline and Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Angelic.
