Elisabeth Moss at the Emmy Awards 2009: Get The Look

Elisabeth Moss looked stunning on the red carpet last night and as she took stage with her fellow cast members to receive the award for “Best Drama”, for “Mad Men”, the hit series in which she stars. Celebrity makeup artist, Lauren Kaye Cohen shares how she created Elisabeth’s ethereal look:

SKIN: To get Elisabeth’s radiant-looking, flawless skin, I began by using a combination of shu uemura’s Face Architect Smoothing Fluid Foundation and the new Nobara Cream Cover Stick Foundation (in areas that needed more coverage) both in shades 784. I applied both foundations with shu uemura’s Natural 18 Goat Brush. I then dabbed a bit of YSL Teint Parfait Complexion Enhancer in 02 Rose Pearl with my fingertips across the tops of her cheekbones. I finished with shu uemura’s Face Powder in Matte 5yr Light, applying it just to the center of the face with shu’s Natural Brush 27.

Yves Saint Laurent Touch Éclat

In Marta’s Makeup Bag: I’ve been using the classic lately: Yves Saint Laurent Touch Éclat ($40), or in translation: Radiant Touch. I’ve been reading about YSL Touch Éclat for many years now and I even remember buying it almost 10 years ago! Can you believe that? At the time, I made a bit of an error by getting the wrong shade. It was a very pale almost white shade that didn’t do anything to my light olive complexion. So I was disappointed with the results back then. But it’s OK sometimes to give anyone or anything a second chance. This time I got the Yves Saint Laurent Touch Éclat in shade 3, Marta’s shade! And it works amazing on me now! Yoohoo. Finally. Touch Éclat is perfect to cover under eye dark circles and brighten the eye area. Now, I’m in love:)
