Celebrity makeup artist, Rosie Johnston, created the look of Emily VanCamp for the 2012 Emmys using products from Talika Beauty.

Emily VanCamp 2012 Emmy Awards

“Emily is wearing a beautiful, kind of 1920s art-decoy very pale grey dress, in that it’s structured, but not, and it’s very ethereal, beautiful, and youthful.  So we went for a very classic look, nothing that would take away from the dress.  The look was youthful, classic, extremely polished while also looking effortless.
First, I used Talika’s Instant Beauty as a primer because it is going to be extremely hot on the red carpet and a primer is really necessary.  I applied it using a foundation brush all over the face, but mainly focusing on the T-zone.  I loved Instant Beauty because it gave her skin dewiness while still remaining matte, which is very rare to find in a product.
We wanted a really defined brow and Emily has good brows already, but they don’t extend out on the end, so I used the Talika Eyebrow Extender in Dark Brown to create a nicer form and help her eyebrows look naturally extended out.  I applied it straight through once to darken up the brow and give the appearance of the eyebrows being thicker.  Then I went back and applied in areas that were a little sparser.  The product was a great base to create a thicker, longer brow and also gave the shadow I used to fill them in later something to grip onto.
For her lashes, I used Talika’s Heated Eyelash Curler, which was freaking awesome!  It’s amazing and it actually makes the curl stay!  I love it.   I wanted to go for a thicker look for her lashes so I applied a light coat of mascara, then went back over, while the mascara was still wet, and applied the Talika Lash Extender for added volume and length, and then added another coat of thicker mascara on top.  It made her eyes look very defined but you wouldn’t know that there was a lot there.  This kept everything defined and polished.
She looked gorgeous walking out the door.  Classic, clean, and youthful.”

TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist John D., who created her hair look, said he “wanted to complement Emily’s soft, gray gown with a style that was equally modern and romantic.  We opted for a lovely, textured chignon with side-swept bangs to really bring the look together.”

Step 1:  Prep towel-dried hair with TRESemmé Smooth Salon Silk Serum and TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse.  Combine both products in palms and apply to hair with fingertips from roots to ends
** Stylist Secret:  Use a combination (cocktail) of products to achieve styling results simultaneously (e.g. shine, volume and smoothness)
Step 2:  Blow dry hair using a round brush
Step 3:  Take 1-2 inch sections of hair and curl with a small barrel curling iron, spraying each section with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray to aid in protecting hair from excess heat
Step 4:  Once all hair is curled, allow the curls to cool before brushing through with a small bristle brush
Step 5:  Gently back brush the hair for added volume and texture
Step 6:  Create a deep side part and pull all hair into a loose ponytail at one side of the nape of the neck and secure with a band  
Step 7:  Twist the ponytail into a full chignon at the nape, securing with bobby pins
Step 8:  Complete the style with a spritz of TRESemmé TRES Two Ultra Fine Mist Non-Aerosol Hairspray to help add shine and keep the look in place

Inspiration: “I wanted her makeup to look as if she were a black and white photograph come to life.” –celebrity makeup artist Molly Stern for tarte cosmetics.

“I prepped Julianne’s skin with tarte’s pure maracuja oil to give the skin a deep infusion of moisture and glow.”
Molly applied tarte’s cheek stain in loving in the hollows of her cheek and then topped off the apples with tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in exposed.

To keep her eyes simple and fresh, Molly softened her lids with Amazonian clay waterproof cream eyeshadow in slate to give a subtle yet dazzling glow. 

To finish the look, Molly filled her lips in with tarte’s LipSurgence matte lip tint in exposed and then pressed tarte’s glamazon pure performance 12-hour lipstick in pure over top. “I wanted to make sure the color had a matte finish to keep with the overall softness of the look.”
