The Primetime Emmys have arrived early this year , which means we're gawking at gowns and mimicking red carpet makeup looks before Summer has even ended! From the inmates of Orange Is the New Black to the office mates of Parks and Recreation, our favorite TV stars are getting all dressed up for a night. Now we know you're looking forward to the awards, but it's the looks before the show that have our attention. Scroll through all the glamorous makeup looks and gorgeous updos below!
Lucy took the minimalist approach to makeup at the Emmys, so her team didn't skimp on the skin care. Her face was prepped with Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer  ($10).
Lizzy went gray with her eye shadow, black with her dress, and oxblood red with her nails. All good choices, we think! You can use Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in Hypnotique  ($31) to get a similar look at home.
The award for best use of a hair accessory went to Julianna. Her simple Emi-Jay Black Satin Headband  ($3) blended in with her jet-black hair color but still added a touch of texture to her style. As for her chic lip stain, Molly Stern used her fingers to blend Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipsticks  ($25) in Fig and Ultra Violet.
The Downton Abbey frontwoman pulled her shoulder-length locks back into a classy chignon with a middle part for the Emmys. The rest of her beauty look honored the basics: bold brows, dewy skin, and rosy lips. Makeup artist Jordan Long used Giorgio Armani Eye & Brow Maestro  ($34) to create a subtle winged liner look and fill in Michelle's arches.
Hairstylist Mara Roszak used a classic L'Oréal Paris Elnett Strong Hold Satin Hairspray  ($14) to give this chignon hold. However, the star of this style was the Ana Khouri barrette shaped like a wishbone.
The haircut of the season  (the lob) looked absolutely perfect on Julie at the Emmys. Her hairstylist Adir Abergel used a dab of Neutrogena Triple Repair Leave-In Conditioner  ($6) to give the ends that piecey look. Julie also matched her navy smoky eye to the flowers in her dress.
Something about Julianne's bangs-heavy style reminded us of Justin Bieber . . . But in a good way! Riawna Capri used KMS California Hair Play Dry Wax  ($19) to give Julianne's fringe some height. Julianne's eye makeup matched her emerald earrings. You can get the exact same shade at home. It's Nars Snake Eyes Eye Paint  ($25).
Kate slowly transitioned her hair from dirty blond  to this strawberry shade, which really made her stand out. Hairstylist Mara Roszak used L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It High Lift Creation Spray  ($5) before blow-drying to get the rough-and-tumble texture.
Kiernan pulled her hair back into a low chignon and kept her makeup soft and simple (very age-appropriate for a teen). Her stylist Bridget Brager set Kiernan's curls using Velcro rollers then spritzed Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease  ($3) on the ends before making miniature knots at the nape. Finally, it was all pinned up into this simple hairdo.
Gwen channeled Donatella Versace  for her Emmys look, meaning stick-straight strands and dark eyeliner. Danilo, her stylist for the night, applied Pantene Advanced+ Keratin Repair KeraGloss Oil Mist  ($14) before using the flat iron to give the look a supershiny finish.
The Mad Men actress swooped her fringe over to one side, while the rest of her mane was tucked into a neat chignon. Of course, with that jet-black hair, a soft pink was the best lipstick choice. The shade actually coordinated with her eye makeup, which was a lavender color called Chanel Ombré Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Hésitation  ($30) mixed with other rosy hues.
Lena admitted her new blond locks are all hers! For this red carpet, she paired her light mane with a subtle pink lip stain and fully rimmed eyeliner. Makeup artist Jo Strettell used Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner  ($23) on the upper and lower lash lines.
With Kristen's pale hair and blue eyes, the deep plum smoky eye was the best bet for her Emmys makeup. The look started with Cargo Cosmetics Swimmables Eye Pencil in Pfeiffer Beach  ($18) and was layered with multiple purple shadow shades. Her hair got that just-touched texture from Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Weightless Dry Shampoo  ($3), which her stylist massaged in at the roots only.
Though Allison is set to play the male role of Peter Pan, this look showed off her femininity. Allison's long mane was swept back into a bun, and her makeup was simple and sophisticated. Makeup artist Pati Dubroff used Nars Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Corcovado  ($25) to give Allison's inner eyes a golden glow and then balanced it out with the Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint in Lucky  ($24).
We barely recognized Zooey without her signature bangs, but somehow we like these voluminous curls just as much. Zooey's pink cheeks matched her dress perfectly. Get the look using Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blusher in Love Is the Drug  ($40).
It was another moody lip look  for Sarah at the Emmys. The young actress wore a doughnut-style topknot, bold brows, and a murky mauve lip hue. Her hairstylist Ryan Richman sprayed Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray  ($5) on the brush before styling to keep flyaways under control. Her thick arches were filled in using the Diorshow Brow Styler  ($29).
Halle wore sassy sideswept bangs to present at the Emmys, but that only spotlighted her perfectly camouflage nude lip. The shade was actually a mix of Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm in Ingenue  ($9) and Chanel Glossimer in Sweet Beige  ($30).
Uzo's red carpet look was all about the lashes (insert Crazy Eyes joke here). Her eye makeup was a wash of bronze from the Cargo Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Yukon  ($16). Makeup artist Jessica Smalls applied the powder with a wet brush to get a vivid finish. Hairstylist Jamika Wilson used Motions Straight Finish Sealer  ($6) to help blow-dry Uzo's naturally curly hair into this sleek twist.
Christina played with the rules of red — meaning she broke all of them. She wore a crimson lip, a cherry-red dress, and auburn locks. Get the same lip shade using Pür Minerals Lip Gloss Stick in Daredevil  ($16). As for her hair, Gregory Russell applied John Frieda Volume Fine to Full Blowout Spray  ($12) to the ends before rough-drying her strands, giving the Mad Men star instant waves.
Kaley took her pixie cut for a whirl on the red carpet and toned down her makeup for a sweet girl-next-door style. Her makeup artist Jamie Greenberg used Avon Big & Daring Mascara  ($9) and Ardell Individual Lashes  ($4) to really make her eyes pop.
Can we just say that Julia looked amazing on the red carpet with her soft waves and barely there makeup? Her makeup artist for the night, Genevieve Herr, used just a touch of Lancome L'Absolu Rouge Lipcolor in Fleur Impressioniste  ($30) on the actress's pout, keeping the look au naturel.
Kerry sported a subtle ombré eye shadow look featuring bright blue eye shades! Her makeup artist Carola Gonzalez mixed Neutrogena Crease-Proof Shadow in Forever Platinum  ($9) and Diorshow Fusion Eye Shadow in Cosmos  ($31).
Red dress, red lip, and smoky eyes pulled together for a superfestive beauty combination on Claire. The shadow was actually a mix of black and silver shades from the Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow in Tissé Riviera .
Claire's hair had a few wispy pieces around the face, but the main attraction was the braided chignon in back. Her hairstylist Peter Butler attempted to pin up this fishtail plait three different times and used Leonor Greyl Laque Souple  ($36) to give the updo extra texture.
Sofia wore a bright red lip that really played up her sex appeal (not that she needed any help in that stunning white gown). Get the look at home with CoverGirl Outlast All Day Lipcolor in Ever-Reddy  ($11).
The mom-to-be swept her hair up into a textured updo that she accentuated with a diamond headband. Such a Cinderella moment! Her makeup artist Amy Oresman used an insider trick for wide-awake eyes. She limited the Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black  ($8) to just the inner waterline. The effect was subtly smoky but not over-the-top.
Although she was wearing mod bangs  at last night's MTV VMAs, Laverne went for a more Old Hollywood classic hairstyle on the Emmys red carpet with a rolled-under updo. Her hairstylist Ursula Stephen used Motions Shine Enhancing Pomade  ($4) to tame flyaways for this flawless look.
The Orange Is the New Black star pulled her hair back into a tousled chignon, which made room for her dusty eye shadow to stand out. Makeup artist Tina Turnbow used Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Moonlight  ($28) on the lids and inner corners to give her eyes a champagne glow.
Kelly pumped up her mohawk haircut into a pompadour look for the Emmys red carpet, putting her edgy scalp tattoo on display.
January's effortlessly cool bangs-and-braid combination had a piecey, texturized look that contrasted perfectly with her glam red lip. The exact shade was Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Coromandel  ($35).
Renato Campora used Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Mega Firm Hold Gel  ($5) to pull January's hair back into this twisted style.
If there was an award for best tan on TV, Heidi would easily take the title. She was looking bronzed and beachy on the Emmys red carpet wearing sleek waves and minimal makeup.
Look at those layers! Natalie had a Farrah Fawcett-type style on the Emmys red carpet.
Anna played it cool with an all-white dress and a slicked-back bun. The Veep actress also mastered the art of the nude lip.
Debra was definitely our favorite redhead at the Emmys. She sourced her look from the Old Hollywood days, with sideswept curls and a subtle blue smoky eye.
We dream of tousled waves as perfect as Amy's. Sure, she was rocking the look on the Emmys red carpet, but it would be just as chic on the beach.
Sarah took the deep plunge, wearing her inky strands in voluminous curls. Meanwhile, her makeup was based on rosy tones.
Keke will be hitting Broadway as Cinderella soon, and she took this opportunity to try out her ballgown look. Her hair was pulled back into an extralong ponytail to show off her structured neckline.
It was '70s-worthy curls for Angela at the Emmys. The teased style was one of the biggest looks (in volume at least) we saw all night.
Bring on the round brush! We will be working hard to re-create this bouncy blowout from Julia's Emmys appearance.
Mad Men star Teyonah pulled up her natural hair into a chic, curled topknot, and she matched her pastel pink lip color to her striped gown.
Sarah's dress stole much of the attention on the Emmys red carpet, so she kept her makeup and hair on the simpler side.
Melissa went with a smooth blowout for her big night at the Emmys, and her pout was a dark pink shade that popped against her black ensemble.
Giuliana made her first red carpet appearance as a blonde at the Emmys. She pared down her makeup to the basics to balance out her bright hair hue.
