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.

They all like like death warmed over, frankly. I can’t imagine why these makeup tips would help anyone, unless they are warnings of what not to do.

It’s unanimous — yuck, yuck and yuck! Debra’s wouldn’t be so bad but her nose looks funny and she should have done her roots before a big night like the Emmy’s…love her earrings, though.

Debra Messing not only has the best make-up then the other 2, but she was also dressed better at the Emmy’s. I would have lighten it up a little bit around the eyes, not using too much black, but going the more natural route, because she is such a natuarally beautiful woman.

Ellen Pompeo is the worst ever. I hated everything about her look. Her make-up was the worst ever, and that hair….that hair looks like something my cat coughed up.

Rebecca Romijn has nice pin-up curls, but everything else about her was awful. Her flapper dress was ugly for the event, and her make-up just didn’t suite her. I don’t know why, but it was all wrong on her. The pink was just too much, and her face was all washed out, not natural looking at all.

Why in the world would I wanna get these style tips? Have you looked at them {excluding Debra Messing}? Give us tips on someone like Katherine Heigl, Kristen Bell or Jennifer Love Hewitt from the Emmy’s. I don’t mind Debra Messing, but I wouldn’t wanna put on make-up like Rebecca’s or Ellen’s.

Debra’s definetly looks the best, but I still love Ellen and Rebecca, even if their makeup isn’t all that it should be.
