The 2013 Emmys saw a plethora of bold beauty trends, including different versions of the statement eye. We've rounded up the most memorable eye-catching looks from the red carpet.
Lena Dunham wowed viewers with her bold emerald eye makeup. Makeup artist Jo Strettel created the look by lining the inner corners of the eyes with Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Crayon in Intro(vert) ($25, sephora.com) and smudging the inner corners with a similar color eye shadow.
Makeup artist Rachel Goodwin created January Jones' ethereal purple eye by applying Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Seduction ($59, chanel.com) to the lids. She blended the deep burgundy shape into the crease, then used the pale pink shimmer over the lids and brow bones.
Kaley Cuoco wore the boldest statement eye of the night, thanks to makeup artist Jamie Greenberg. “I applied mark On the Dot Bold Eye Color Compact [$16, meetmark.com] in the grey shade on the inside of her eyes and brushed the brown shade in the middle. Then I blended in Chanel’s [Quadra Eye Shadow in] Variation [$59, chanel.com]in the burgundy shade. Next, I used mark Keep it Going Longwear Eyeliner in Exposure [$11, meetmark.com] on Kaley’s lash line to define her eyes."
Julianne Hough proves a statement eye doesn't have to be loud to be eye-catching. Her light blue/silver eye shadow was absolute perfection.
