Emmys From The Neck Up: Retro Waves And Smoky Eyes

September 22, 2008 by SheFindsErin

Break out those big-barreled curling irons, sigh in relief that we're almost done with humidity for another season, and try to dig up a few vintage Vogues as a point of inspiration. Retro screen siren waves staged a comeback on the Emmy Red Carpet last night, with glamazons Evangeline Lily, Lauren Conrad, and host Heidi Klum all opting for opulent updos. Loose, wavy tendrils or sweepy bangs completed the look—and ensured that the ladies didn't look like they were trying too hard to look put-together.

Get the look by twisting hair around the chunkiest iron you can get your hands on—try Conair Infiniti 1.5-inch Curling Iron ($25)—remembering to curl some pieces under and some pieces out for the piecey effect. Or try a waver, like Bed Head Tourmaline Nano-Ceramic Dual Waver ($50) for a fast fix. Finish with a light-as-a-feather styling wax like Frederic Fekkai Coiff Nonchalant Piecing and Forming Wax ($23) to keep curls looking glam all night.

The ladies' Emmy makeup also took a trip back, recalling the ever-classic smoky eye, complete with dramatic liquid liner, and nude lips. Youngster Hayden Panettiere pulled the polished look off with aplomb, and so did an all-dolled-up Jenna Fischer and beauty pro Eva Longoria.

Cop coy cat eyes with liquid liner like Dior Style Liner ($30) on top of a smoky shadow. Make it look like a red carpet-ready pro did your makeup by using Stila's Smoky Eye Talking Palette ($40). A glossy nude lip finishes off the look. Try Nars Lip Gloss in Striptease ($24) for effortless chic that doesn't take too much away from your come-hither eyes.
