Get the Look: Katherine Heigl's Emmy Beauty

Katherine Heigl‘s elegant Emmy took its inspiration from another cool blonde, Grace Kelly. Makeup artist Monika Blunder kept the eye neutral, first applying Ombre d’Eau, a liquid-y eyeshadow, in Sand, $30, then brushing on a pressed eyeshadow in the champagne colored Dessert-Rose, $39, on top of that to give her eyes “a sparkling glow.” She dotted Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Ebene, $27, between her lashes, and then applied three coats of Inimitable Mascara in Noir, $28, on the upper lashes. Blunder brought out her cheekbones by contouring the hollows first with Powder Blush in Nude, $40, and then brushing the tops of the cheeks with Narcisse, $40, a light pink color. Before applying lipstick, she used Lip Definer in Red, $29, to fill in the lips. For Heigl’s bright red lips, Blunder chose Rouge Allure Lipstick in Lover, $30, because of its pink undertones. She finished the look by brushing on a bit of translucent powder to “help it stay throughout the show.”

Hair stylist Campbell McAuley created a complementary old school– yet modern– style to go with the makeup and went for a cool twist on the bun. He put Katherine’s hair in Velcro rollers when it was still wet, blew it dry and sprayed with Frederic Fekkai Coiff Fini Sheer Hold Hairspray, $23. Then he removed the curlers, except for two in the front and brushed out the curls, using Frederic Fekkai Glossing Cream, $20, to set the hair. He divided the hair into three sections and then wrapped each section in a different direction to create three separate buns. He took the two front curlers out and worked back into the hairstyle to create a soft, touchable look on the top.

How did this girl win the Emmys? No wonder the ratings tanked because most of the winners and the stars the public didnt care for.
I miss the West Wing,Friends,Frasier,Cheers,and WB network days.

This girl looks bad.

Carey on

Thumbs down. She looks old for her age.

Lynsee on

Katherine looks absolutely stunning! She is the epitome of old Hollywood glamour with a modern flair! She really knows how to dress up right.

Caitlin on

Grace Kelly? She’s nowhere near that league.

Elsa on

Nothing special about her.

I’m not so sure about those earrings. But she is beautiful.

She strikes me as a little stuck up. I don’t really see anything remarkable about her looks. But that’s just my opinion.

Katherine wasn’t my best dressed at the Emmy’s but she was about 5th on my list. Her make-up and hair look nice, but I wish she’d pick a different kind of dress, she’s really predictable. She should start wearing colors, in my opinion. I thought women like Ali Larter, Minnie Driver, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, America Ferrera, Heidi Klum, and Kristen Bell looked overall better then Katherine, but that’s just my opinion. Her casual street wear chic clothes are nice though.
