While snagging your favorite star’s designer dresses may be next to impossible, getting their flawless makeup is definitely within reach. We got the scoop from the stars’ makeup artists on exactly what they used, so you can try it at home!

Rebecca Romijn: Makeup artist Troy Jensen of MSN Style Studio kept things pale and modern for the Ugly Betty star’s flapper-inspired vintage Guy Laroche gown. For her eyes, he used Estee Lauder’s signature eyeshadow duo in the matte white Sugar Cutie 3, mixed with four other pink shades and layers of Estee Lauder More than Mascara in black for an icy eye look. Jensen kept her face matte with Dior AirFlash foundation and put a mix of Dior powder blush in Peachy Keen, Revelon Colorstay in Buff and Victoria’s Secret mosaic blush on her cheeks. Jensen went with simple lips mixing pale pinks like Bourjois lipstick in Rose.

Ellen Pompeo: To balance the Grey’s star’s bouffant hair, makeup artist Joanna Schlip played up her eyes and brows in a silly but sexy twist on the 1972 classic What’s Up Doc?. Using DiorShow mascara to darken the eyelashes and Physicians Formula eye-definer felt tip eye maker, she created a severe black line across the top of the eye. For added color, she used Baked Berry blush by Physicians Formula to give Ellen a matte glow and highlight her cheekbones. For the lips she went with Dior Addict Plastic Gloss in Maniac Beige to pick up her natural lip tone.

Debra Messing: To go with her classic Ralph Lauren gown, makeup artist Carol Shaw kept things modern, fresh, relaxed — and yet very sexy with a smoky eye and pale lips. Using all LORAC makeup — Carol is the founder of the brand — she started with the Showstopper Palette for the eye color and then lined it with the long-wearing Front Of The Line eyeliner in black. She finished the eyes with several coats of the fiber mascara called Lotsa Lash. The rest of the star’s face was kept simple, with a hint of color added to her brows with the Creamy Brow Pencil in blonde and a pale lip with Kissing Scene lipstick and a top coat of Costar gloss.

Ellen P looks horrible! Ewww! She looks like an old lady! Yuck!

All three usually look lovely all the time but their makeup looks kinda weird to me, not sure what to think of it but i just don’t like it.

I saw another photo of Ellen P on another website and her forhead had a ton of wrinkles; it’s either time for botox or bangs! Also, very unflattering eye makeup.

Rebecca looks odd. I think it’s the lipstick color that is throwing me off. Ellen also looks odd. Her hair style is horrible and she needs more color on her eyes. I think Debra looks okay and definately the best out of the three.

Kim v on

I don’t like any of these looks – the makeup ages them. Not flattering at all!

Why in the world would I want to “try it at home”? Rebecca and Ellen look absolutely horrid. Debra looks a little better, but the way they did her eyes makes them look too closed in and tiny. Yuk!

Debra looked gorgeous!
she reminds me of lucille ball:)

The other 2 were ok…nothing to talk about

EE on

All three women look old because they’re wearing makeup that’s too thick, heavy and fake. Hayden P and Katherine H looked FAR better because they didn’t spackle everything on!

Tanya on

francina on
