NARS and the Emmys: Get Mary-Louise Parker's Red Carpet Look


Makeup artist Tina Turnbow was inspired by Mary-Louse Parker’s dress, shoes and personal style when she created  this fresh, luminous and femnine look for the actress.

We asked Tina to share with us what
products she used and why, and this is what she told us:

I used an oil-free moisturizer, eye gel and the NARS Sabrina Lip Balm ($23) to prep the skin for the makeup.

I started with NARS Balanced Foundation ($41) in Mont Blanc, then applied NARS Concealer ($21) and followed it with NARS Pressed Powder ($29) in Snow. I also applied some of the NARS Foundation Powder ($45) in Mont Blanc to the chest area. We wanted her skin to have a luminous glow. She’s so fair and her skin has a very delicate, ivory quality about it that is so pretty.

I have given her a beautiful hot pink lip using NARS Lipliner Pencil ($20) in Funny Face. After I lined and filled in the lips, I blotted and added a hint of powder to set the lipliner. You can use your finger or a Q-tip to achieve this look. Blotting the lips after applying the lipliner created a gorgeous softness to the lips. I wanted most of the color in the center of the lips.

For her cheeks, I used NARS Blush ($25) in Desire and applied it the apple of the cheek. I then used the NARS Blush Brush ($46) to soften the edges of the blush.

For her eyes I used NARS single shadow ($22) in Tibet and for the crease I used the Duo Eyeshadow ($32) in Violetta.

I also used the Eyeliner Pencil ($20) in London on the upper lash and smudged it out to create a soft cat eye. I finished the look using NARS Mascara ($23) in Black Orchid WTPR.
