We never knew that creamy, rose gold monotone can look so glamorous! Julia Garner — who bagged the 2020 Emmy Award for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series — paired her classic 60s pin-up girl pixie with a matte complexion, inner corner highlight, feathered brows and peachy lips. We love the touch of old-Hollywood glam with that pearly hair accessory, creating a lovely contract with her striking blue-grey eyes!
02. Laverne Cox’s bomb smokey eye

Most of the celebs who were featured presented two looks each for the night. And while Laverne Cox served a blonde wig and Barbie-girl moment in her other look, it is this bomb smokey eye that caught our attention. It can be tricky to do makeup that complements a sheer black dress, but Laverne’s plum lips and shimmery eye makeup got the job done well! P.S. We love her double French nails tips — so dope!
03. Yara Shahidi’s sexy flicked eyeliner

Boxed braids paired with a bare face and a sexy flicked eyeliner — Yara Shahidi was serving up backyard glam like no other! We love the grey-filled in brows and lit-from-within complexion on her. That glossy pout is to die for.
04. Kerry Washington’s soft glam

Sticking to the basics, Kerry Washington kept her red carpet makeup classic — rosy lips, paired with slightly blushed cheeks and a bold kohl liner drawn on shimmery gold lids. The face-framing blunt bob hairdo felt a bit tricky to love at first sight, but now we can’t get enough of it.
05. Reese Witherspoon’s signature red lip

Given that celeb’s glam teams had less time to work their magic, many of them stuck to their signature makeup looks. For Reese Witherspoon, it is a signature Hollywood waves paired with blushed out cheeks and a bold red lip. Full disclosure: That champagne glass looks like a fun accessory too; we aren’t going to lie!
06. Yvonne Orji’s timely detail

Red carpet fashion moments have long been dedicated to showcasing causes that are deeply held by celebrities. More so now that the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement is at its influential peak. For Yvonne Orji, a hair tattoo was her weapon of choice to give a shout-out to the cause.
07. Zendaya’s sleek low bun

In addition to looking snatch AF in luxe jewels, Zendaya made history by becoming the youngest Emmy winner for lead actress in a drama. While she received her award in a voluminous updo, it is this sleek low-bun glam moment that remained a highlight of the whole show. Hey Z, please tell us how you keep your baby hair in check, ‘cause that mane is flyaway-free like a dream!
