In collaboration with Charlotte Tilbury.
At last Sunday’s 73rd Annual Emmy Awards, Kaley Cuoco looked beautiful in a highlighter yellow Vera Wang gown paired with De Beers jewelry. What finished off her Award show look was soft and subtle makeup by makeup artist, Jamie Greenberg.
Using an assortment of Charlotte Tilbury products, Jamie created a look that brought out Kaley’s natural beauty with sultry eyes and a naturally-pigmented nude lip.
We spoke with Jamie to learn more about this flawless look, and how we can recreate elements at home.
What was the inspiration behind Kaley’s Emmy’s look?
The dress was really our inspiration. We didn’t want to compete with the dress, but we wanted something glowing so the texture was different. It needed to be refined and natural!
You created a really great faded lip for this look. Do you have any tips on how someone could create this lip look at home?
Take your time lining your lip with a colour that is a shade darker than your lipstick. Don’t press the lipliner too hard; feather it on instead. Then use a brush to apply the lip colour. It’s easier to blend with a brush!
What were the hero products of Kaley’s award show look?
Charlotte Tilbury’s Nudegasm palette was epic! It looks so good on the skin, face and eyes. You can literally use it everywhere. The Airbrush Flawless foundation is amazing too. You can build it to any level of coverage and it always looks good. Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel Body for the entire body was gorgeous. When you put it on, it doesn’t look like it’s covering a lot, but when you see it in pictures, you won’t believe the glow and blurred look it provides. I’m also obsessed with her Nude Collection lip colours!
As Kaley’s look had to last the entire night, what is the best way to create a lasting look?
The most important thing you need to do is layer. You need to layer the skincare, as well as the makeup. Of course, you also need to finish the look with a setting spray. I used Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Flawless Face!
In your opinion, what is the most important step in creating a great base for makeup application?
