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.

Kathryn Hahn In Marni – ‘She’s Funny That Way’ Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Kathryn Hahn In Marni - 'She's Funny That Way' Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

On Friday (August 29) Kathryn Hahn made an appearance at the 2014 Venice Film Festival to promote her latest movie, ‘She’s Funny That Way’.

Photocall: For the photocall she kept it light and summery wearing a Marni pink crepe sleeveless knee-length dress embellished with jewelled detailing. I didn’t get or like the addition of the black Marni leather sandals – I picture yellow bringing out those jewels; however, opting for nude would’ve washed her out completely.

Premiere: Sticking with Marni for the premiere, the actress selected a look from the Evening Collection featuring a black silk-faille jacket with tonal tri-dimensional stones paired with black crepe wide-leg trousers with a cascading ruffle detail. The look has many interesting elements, but perhaps this should’ve been saved for the New York premiere.

Gwendoline Christie attended the Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve and Vanity Fair party held during the Venice Film Festival on Saturday (August 30) in Venice, Italy.

The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress wore a Vivienne Westwood Gold Label Spring 2014 sheer dress with silver swirling stripes, modified from the runway to fill in the midriff.

Keeping the style simple so as not to upstage her gorgeous dress, she accessorized with simple black pumps, a silver panther ring and a black and silver Edie Parker clutch.

Beauty-wise, she swept her blonde hair back, highlighting her eyes and adding gloss to her lips.

Sarah Felberbaum attended the ‘Hungry Hearts’ premiere during the 2014 Venice Film Festival on Sunday (August 31) in Venice, Italy.

Like so many others at this festival, the British actress wore Alberta Ferretti, selecting a purple-hued striped tie-dye strapless gown from the Resort 2015 collection, which she elegantly styled with a dual-colour purple and fuchsia Ferragamo clutch.

Opting for no jewels and a simple topknot, was this lacking in glamour for a Venice Film Festival?

Giorgia Sinicorni In Vionnet - '3 Coeurs' Venice Film Festival Premiere

Giorgia Sinicorni attended the ‘Three Hearts’ (’3 Coeurs’) premiere during the 2014 Venice Film Festival on Saturday (August 30) in Venice, Italy.

The Italian actress wore a Vionnet Fall 2014 navy and grey striped sheer dress accented with a grey felt shoulder and wraparound waist detailing.

Some might be put off by the side boob, but I love how this look leaves a lasting impression with its modern, sexy, elegant vibe.

Styled with black satin peep-toes and a silver clutch, the makeup was kept au naturel, as were her tresses.
