"Going back to normal" for regular people means being able to enjoy happy-hour tapas safely on a Wednesday night. For celebrities, this means returning to the red carpet. After a year and a half in isolation, award season made its grand in-person return on Sunday night with the Emmy Awards, and the red carpet was flooded with A-listers glammed to the nines. While the stars came to collect their gold statues, we tuned in to take notes — specifically about their beauty looks.
Turns out, you don't necessarily need a professional beauty squad to create the same kind of flawless looks your favorite celebrities are known for. All you need are some really great products. Extra TV's Rachel Lindsay virtually sat down with POPSUGAR Executive Style Director Dana Avidan Cohn to discuss some of the beauty looks that made a huge impression and the products you can use at home to replicate them.
Long lashes, said Dana, really stood out at the Emmys this year. While many celebrities opt for falsies to achieve this look, she recommends a volumizing mascara, like Clinique High Impact Mascara. Another standout feature of the night: glowing skin. Yes, red carpet prep often includes a pricey facial, but you can skip this step — and the steep bill. Instead, opt for a foundation that prioritizes skin-care benefits, like the Clinique Even Better Clinical Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25. "[It] has a satin matte finish, which is what makes red carpet looks so professional," said Dana. "You're not getting any of that caking or creasing. It just looks effortless, it looks smooth, it looks fresh." Yep, it's that easy.
