2011 Emmy Awards beauty recap

One look at the beautiful faces on the 2011 Emmy Awards red carpet and you could make out four very strong trends. 

Barely There, Nude Faces
Heidi Klum, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rachael Harris showed the new class of young ladies on the red carpet how it’s done with barely there, light makeup that allowed their natural beauty to shine through.
Darkly Lined Eyes With Bold Lips
While the ladies above wanted neutral, Angela Kinsey, Claire Danes and Jayma Mays threw their style into overdrive. With dark lined upper lids and bright bold lip colors, this trio was ready to rock the red carpet.
Ghostly Pale, Shimmery Cheeks
This look had me a little perplexed! It’s only September, not the middle of winter, but Dianna Agron, Julianna Marguiles and Evan Rachel Wood looked like they hadn’t seen the sun for months. I have to say the pale cheeks are better than orangey, overly-bronzed ones.
Shiny, Glossy Lips
It wasn’t blondes having all the fun on the red carpet, Sofia Vergara, Minka Kelly and Colbie Smulders gave brunettes a good name with their shiny locks and equally shiny, glossy lips.
What did you think of the beauty trends on the red carpet? Did you have a favorite, or least favorite?
