Get The Look: Halle Berry’s Emmy Awards Soft Smoky Beauty Look

Halle Berry Emmys Makeup

Halle Berry was the picture of true elegance at the 2014 Emmy Awards (August 25th). Gliding along the red carpet in a stunning Elie Saab gown, celebrity makeup artist, Kara Yoshimoto Bua, was deeply inspired by the soft dusty rose tones of the dress.

Keeping with its fluidity and soft nature, Kara created a look that highlighted these stunning aspects. She emphasizes that choosing a proper shadow tone is crucial in achieving a specific look.

“To create a softer and sexier smoky eye, stay away from dark greys and blacks and use warm browns and burgundies with red undertones that compliment all skin tones,” says Kara.

Here’s how you can recreate this irresistible look yourself:

SKIN
Prep: For a richly hydrated foundation, Kara moisturized Halle’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage La Crème Yeux.

Foundation: Once prepped, she evened out Halle’s skin with CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Sunscreen Makeup SPF 15 in 60 Beige. For a more shapely and multifaceted effect, Kara contoured her face with the same foundation in shade 104 Ambre.

Cheeks: Kara highlighted Halle’s cheekbones with REVLON Highlighting Palette in Peach Glow and applied REVLON Cream Blush in Pinched to her cheeks for a brightened flush of color.

EYES
Kara primed Halle’s lid with REVLON PhotoReady Primer + Shadow in Metropolitan and blended REVLON ColorStay 16H Eye Shadow Quad in Adventurous on her lids. She followed by defining the eyes with REVLON Luxurious Color Eye Liner Pencil in Sueded Brown and neatly smudged it out along the lash lines. For a final eye framing effect, Kara layered REVLON Growluscious Mascara in Black on her lashes.

Kara proceed with a clean grooming of Halle’s brows. She use CHANEL Crayon Sourcils Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Blond Clair on the brows for a defined yet natural finish. She topped the eyes by gently blending CHANEL Eclat Lumière Highlighter Face Pen in 50 Medium Deep along the under eye for a eye opening highlight.

LIPS
For the perfect nude pout, Kara first applied REVLON ColorBurst Lacquer Balm in Ingenue to Halle’s lips and followed with a generous coat of CHANEL Glossimer in Sweet Beige.

Halle Berry In Elie Saab – 2014 Emmy Awards

Halle Berry In Elie Saab - 2014 Emmy Awards

Halle Berry was one of the last to arrive on the red carpet for the 2014 Emmy Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Monday (August 25) in Los Angeles, California, and it was worth the wait.

The actress went off-piste by not wearing black and not opting for a plunging neckline on this rare occasion.

Halle was radiant wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2014 dusty-pink chiffon gown with velvet trims and a thigh-high slit.

She could’ve really worked that slit, but she opted not to make this the focus of her look.

Complementary Doves amethyst and mother of pearl earrings and a Sutra sapphire ring rounded out her stunning look.

Halle Berry In Atelier Versace – Late Show With David Letterman

Halle Berry In Atelier Versace - Late Show With David Letterman

Halle Berry made a guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ at Ed Sullivan Theater on Monday (July 7) in New York City to promote her show ‘Extant’.

Showing off that gorgeous, can’t-believe-she-recently-had-a-baby toned bod, the actress took a break from wearing black and grey, thank you God, but still opted for a fall-like hue.

Her plum Atelier Versace Fall 2013 fully sequined body-con dress with Swarovski crystal hook-and-eye detailing is a great look for Halle; I just wish the look didn’t feel so heavy, plus her hair has seen better days.

Black Ruthie Davis pumps and cuff earrings completed her look.

Halle Berry attended the premiere of ‘Extant’ held at the California Science Center on Monday (June 16) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress, known for her love all things black, donned a gunmetal grey Jenny Packham Fall 2013 dress.

Her figure-hugging metallic knit dress with embellished neckline and cuffs was styled with black embellished Louboutin pumps and a statement ring.

The look is great, but it’s missing one final ingredient that I can’t put my finger on.

Halle Berry In Elie Saab Couture – 2014 Huading Film Awards

Halle Berry In Elie Saab Couture - 2014 Huading Film Awards

Halle Berry collected the Global Icon Award during the Huading Film Awards on Sunday (June 1) which were held at Ricardo Montalban Theatre in Los Angeles, California. This was the first time China’s #1 film awards has been held in the U.S.

The actress, who made Elie Saab a household name by wearing one of his gowns to the 2002 Oscars, went back into the designer’s archive to select her look for this occasion.

Her Elie Saab black floral-embroidered gown featuring sheer sleeves and a lace-accented side slit, hails from the Spring 2003 Couture collection, the first Couture collection by the Lebanese designer.

Even though this dress is old, it is refreshing to see something different from Elie Saab; as I noted in my Elle Fanning post, those beaded gowns are all starting to feel like red carpet repeats.
