Well, the 2016 Emmys have come and gone.
As an artist and lover of all things art and beauty, I'm always excited to see what looks creative teams come up with for their celebrity clients.
There were some beautiful dresses on the carpet and lots of color. I really enjoyed seeing color and how well the tones complimented so many of the women walking the carpet. Cut outs were big too and worn tastefully well. Kerry Washington really amazed with her tasteful cut outs showing her baby bump.
Priyanka Chopra looked amazing in her red dress! The red lip was perfect with her beautiful dress without being overdone. That takes talent and skill to pull off. You could totally tell that she was comfortable in her gown and that it really made her feel beautiful. Her look was classically beautiful.
Many of the ladies on the carpet chose to go with soft makeup while there were some that chose to go bold. I personally like them all. Variety is the spice of life, after all.
In saying that, Emily Ratajkowski (pictured above) really decided to be bold with her makeup this go 'round. It is what I like to call a "butterfly cat eye." The color and design of this colorful graphic eye remind me of a butterfly. Since butterflies are all about change, we clearly see that here with the decision to go bold with makeup and more demure with the dress styling. We also see the change in the makeup itself-going from color to graphic design. I like. Hung Vanngo is the master behind this beautiful makeup styling. Way to go!
There is a lot to be said about mature and classic beauty as well. Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Lily Tomlin-just to name a few-were gorgeous as well. For me, I really liked how each lady knew exactly what to do with her makeup. It wasn't overdone. For me, this is what mature beauty is all about.
The 2016 Emmys are now history but we do have trends that are sure to stick around for quite awhile. The styling of so many ladies was just beautiful and I enjoyed seeing each one show her beauty off in her own, unique way. Congrats to all the winners! Until next time. . .
