The Primetime Emmys is one of the tinsel town’s most glamorous nights when our favorite television stars shine on the red carpet, sporting the hottest trends of the season. And this year was no different. On Monday, August 25th, the biggest stars of the small screen took the Emmy Awards red carpet by storm with some serious style, glamorous makeup looks and gorgeous updos!
With that being said, you can only imagine how excited I was when I got the opportunity to interview celebrity make-up artist Gita Bass (whose star-studded clientele includes Katie Holmes, Elizabeth Olsen, Selena Gomez, Ashley Greene, Debra Messing, and many more!) to discuss the best red carpet trends & makeup looks and get her expert tips on incorporating the stars’ glitz into our everyday looks!
Gita’s top make up tip is, “Take really good care of your skin. If your skin is healthy looking, your make-up is halfway done.” She suggested that before we focus on the bright lips or smoky eyes, it’s important to take good care of your skin and have great skincare habits. That is SO true…being a skincare enthusiast, I can’t agree more!
From Sophia Vergara to Claire Danes, crimson lips were a major trend on the Emmy’s red carpet this year so we chatted about how to pick the perfect red lipstick and other quick makeup tips. Gita is all about fresh, natural makeup with a pop of color on the lips or eyes to create light and gorgeous makeup looks that let your skin shine through! I also asked her about the top makeup trends and colors for this fall/winter season. Check out my interview with Gita Bass below!
Great tips, right? I’m definitely digging the fall trend of deep reds, plums & rich jewel tones and those Simple Skincare Cleansing Facial Wipes sound fantastic…I need to try those!
