emmy look...mary louise parker

I'm still bleary-eyed from watching the Red Carpet the Nokia Theatre in Los well as the entire 61st Primetime Emmy Awards.

Needless to say I'm a tad tired.

But I am trudging along, determined to bring you the Emmy looks.  Driven only by sheer determination...well, that and some major coffee.  Just a little fyi.

Moving on...

Looking really gorgeous was Mary Louise-Parker, who was nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for “Weeds”.

She may not have won in her category...but she was definitely "won" me over with this

Sorry about that...I'm on bad Emmy jokes overload.


Louise-Parker was glamified by the fabulous Tina Turnbow for Maybelline New York.

Tina was inspired by the deep purple and indigo tones in Mary-Louise’s single strapped, deep purple Zac Posen dress, and her gorgeous gunmetal grey accessories. To play up the colors in Mary-Louise’s dress, Tina brought out her best features with a dramatic yet classic smoky eye, blushing pink cheeks and nude lips.

Here's what she used and how she used it...

Face - Because Mary-Louise has beautiful porcelain skin, Tina kept her face looking pristine by applying Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse in Classic Ivory – with touches of Maybelline New York Dream Mousse Concealer in Light under the eyes and to the tops of the cheeks to give a contoured look.

Cheeks - To compliment her ivory skin, Tina brushed on Maybelline New York Mineral Power Naturally Luminous Blush in Gentle Pink to the apples of the cheeks to give the look of a soft natural flush.

Eyes - Tina’s inspiration for Mary-Louise’s entire look was the gorgeous opal-toned smoky eye she created with Maybelline New York Expert Wear Stylish Smokes in Amethyst Smokes. Tina used all four shades in the palette to play up her eyes and add drama; the deep purples complemented her creamy skin and dark hair. She then followed with Maybelline New York Line Stiletto Liquid Eyeliner in Black on the upper and lower lash lines. To showcase the gorgeous jewel tones of the shadows, Tina only applied one coat of Maybelline New York Pulse Perfection Vibrating Mascara in Very Black.

Lips - For a barely-there, neutral lip, Tina lined the entire mouth with Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Liner in Toast. She then followed up with Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipstick in Nearly There.

Body - To complete the look, a soft dusting of Maybelline New York Mineral Power Illuminator in Nude was brushed along her collar bones, arms and legs for a red carpet glow.
