Celebrity makeup artist Coleen Campbell-Olwell created the gorgeous, warm look on Kate Mara last night for the Emmy Awards using Orlane products. Here is a breakdown of how she created the look:

SKIN: “To prep Kate’s skin, I began with the Orlane Elixir Royal, it gives such a nice canvas to the skin that it was perfect for the night. Next, we applied the Super-Moisturizing Light Cream, which I love because it is not greasy at all so it doesn’t break up the makeup but really holds it in place and is super moisturizing. Then, I applied a bit of the Crème Royale Yeux to her eyes.

For tonight, Kate is wearing a beautiful, long white dress with a bit of edge and a deep side part, so we wanted to go with a bronzy, gold look on the eyes and keep everything really warm.

EYES: For her eyes, I used a gold along her lids and then a bronze along the outside to create a more cat eye shape and then lined the inside of her eyes with a bronze eye pencil. To take her eyes to the next level, the Orlane Volume Care Mascara was key. I was so impressed with this mascara because it gives the lashes almost a lacquered look, which added to the edginess and made them look super long and voluminous. This mascara is amazing, I really love it! I also used the Highlight Care Brush to highlight the inner corners of her eyes, which really draws the audiences’ eyes to hers. Lastly, to define her brows, I used the Dior Brow Styler in Universal Brown.

CHEEKS AND LIPS: Then, I went in again with the Highlight Care Brush and applied it straight from the applicator onto her cheekbones. I also applied it on her cupid’s bow with my finger in a tapping motion to give her lips a poutier look.

Next, I used a big fluffy brush to apply the Orlane Bronzer right underneath the cheekbones. I tapped it on and the blended it out very well. This bronzer is great because it’s matte but there is still a tiny hint of a glow so it doesn’t look dead on the skin. The contrast with the highlight on the cheekbones is gorgeous and really gives more dimension to the face. Then, I brushed the bronzer along the hairline to complete the overall warmth that we were going for.

FINISH: Lastly, to keep her t-zone from getting too shiny throughout the night, I applied a light dusting of the Transparent Loose Powder.”
