Some actresses impress us on the red carpet and some depress us. Christina Applegate always rises to the occasion and pulls out a very glamorous look for the Emmy's. This year she was nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in "Samantha Who." She wore a lovely dark blue Basil Soda gown which inspired makeup artist Joanna Schlip to give Christina a sexy retro smoldering eye.
Here's how she did it:
Joanna reflected the drama of Christina’s dress with a smoldering eye. Using the dark gray shade from Clarins Colour Quartet for Eyes in So Chic, Joanna gave a smokey depth to Christina’s green eyes. To add definition and drama, she applied Clarins Eye Pencil in Black around the upper and lower lash line and inside the wet line, then finished with three coats of Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara in Black.
