How-To: Get Debra Messing's 2009 Emmys Makeup

How-To: Get Debra Messing's Sexy, Glam Emmys Makeup

Debra Messing got high marks from the majority of you for her look at the Emmys last night, and it's no surprise, as Carol Shaw, Lorac's founder, did all her makeup personally. Lucky for us, I've got the complete how-to on re-creating Debra's soft, smoky eye and creamy-nude lip. To find out how you can get the look for yourself, just keep reading.

Eyes: Shaw broke out her Red Carpet Reveal Palette ($35), using the first shade to highlight under Debra's brow, the second shade on her lids and creases, and the third shade on her lid. She applied black liner on her lower lash line, then smudged black eye shadow on her lids, and finished with a couple coats of black Special Effects Mascara ($22).

Cheeks: First, Shaw applied TANtalizer Bronzer ($30) as a base, then swept Baked Matte Satin Blush in Exposed ($24) over it. She topped the look off with a luminizing powder, Perfectly Lit in Luminous ($32).

Lips: Shaw filled in Debra's lips with a nude pencil, 18 Lip Pencil ($16). Then, she applied a nude lipstick, her Breakthrough Performance Lipstick in Nude Scene ($22), and finished the lip with a semi-sheer, glossy light beige lipstick,  Couture Shine Liquid Lipstick ($22) in Vintage.

Bella, is there any way you can describe the color shades? I like to print out these how-tos and use them in my bathroom by matching them to colors I already have. If you just link to the palette and don't tell us what color it is, how can I do that?
