“Dance barefoot, wear a flower in your hair and slip off the map for an idyllic moment; discover the Halcyon Days Collection by BECCA.

Create Christina Hendricks’ Emmy 2010 Look

Christina Hendricks looked beautiful at the Emmy’s 2010  and I’ve got the details about her look. This look was created by Make-up Artist Vanessa Scali and was inspired by Mia Farrow’s Daisy Buchanan from “The Great Gatsby”

Face

Vanessa prepped the skin with Lancôme’s La Base Pro makeup primer. To perfect Christina’s already luminous skin, Vanessa used the new Teint Miracle Lit-From-Within foundation . “It has an amazing transparent quality that leaves the skin looking flawless and luminous without being shiny,” said Vanessa. “I applied it with a brush and then blended with my fingers.” Blending with her fingers heated up the foundation a bit, allowing for a seamless finish. Vanessa followed with Effacernes Concealer under the eyes, her “all time favorite concealer.”

For a fresh pop of color I used Blush Subtil Shimmer in Shimmer Pink Pool on the apples of her cheeks. Dabs of Giorgio Armani Beauty’s Fluid Sheer #2 highlighted Christina’s cheekbones.

Eyes

The eye shadow was mix of YSL’s Ombre Solo Eyeshadow in
