Katrina Bowden looked stunning at the Emmys with a look courtesy of makeup artist Nicole Walmsley for Giorgio Armani Beauty. “Katrina’s dress is a gorgeous, jeweled Badgley Mischka gown. It reminds me of Old Hollywood glamour, but with a modern twist. I wanted her makeup to reflect that elegance,” says Walmsley. Here, the beauty breakdown.
The first step was to apply the new Giorgio Armani Maestro Compact (coming in October 2013), which results in flawless, luminous skin. A touch of Lancôme Blush Subtil in 308 Soft Pink on the apples of the cheek gave the perfect hint of healthy color.
Nicole wanted to play off of the dark, rich navy in Katrina’s dress with a coordinating smoky eye by using the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Quad in Mediterranea. The dark blues and silver eyeshadows kept the makeup feeling modern and youthful. Nicole applied the darkest color very close to the lash line and blended up toward the crease. Several coats of Lancôme Hypnôse Waterproof Mascara in Black completed the look.
The lips were kept soft and peachy with Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy in #300 Pop. “This lipstick feels smooth like a hydrating lip balm and has the perfect touch of color.”
