One of my favorites on the red carpet at this year’s Emmy Awards was Taraji P Henson. Loved the yellow Vera Wang dress and how it complimented her gorgeous brown skin. Of course we all would like to get her Emmy glow so I tapped Fab Celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff get and got the inside scoop on the secrets of Taraji’s Emmy Day beauty.
“Getting ready for the Emmys is actually a fun process,” shares Ashunta. “Taraji is very zen and relaxed its the glam team who’s not. We listen to great music and laugh but most importantly she makes sure we have fun.”
I prep her skin by usingDERMAFLASH, which allows me to get the highest level of exfoliation plus remove unwanted peach fuzz so skin care products work ten times better.
I usedKate Somerville Goat Milk De-Puffing Eye Balm to decrease puffiness and hydrate eyes. Then I used the brand’s DermalQuench Liquid Lift andQuench Oil Free Hydrating Face Serum. Both of these products work together to plump, hydrate and give skin that superior radiant glow.
I set her makeup with Milani Prep + Set + Glow Transparent Face Powder using a MAC powder brush.
For cheeks I used Highlight The Truth from Taraji’s MAC collection on cheekbones and then followed up with Taraji Glow for highlight.
I lined lips with MAC Cork Lip Linerthen added Strip Me Down Matte Lipstick, a gorgeous nutty nude color. I added a soft pink gloss only in the center of the lips from Dior called Jersey Pink Addict Collection.
I finished the look with MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ and I added Caudalie Divine Oil on her body along with Kate Somerville Quench Oil for the ultimate body glow.
