Rachael Taylor Makeup, Emmy Awards 2011


Rachael Taylor


To complement Rachael Taylor's blush-colored Armani dress, makeup artist Robin Black kept the makeup chic with strong eyes and brows.

Robin first prepped Rachael's skin with La Mer Lotion, La Mer Eye Creme, and La Mer Lip Balm. After the cream absorbed into her skin, Robin applied a light layer of Armani Fluid Master Primer for a smooth canvas. With a foundation brush, Robin applied Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and blended it in with her fingers. She dabbed on a very small amount of Armani High Precision Retouch Concealer over any red areas. She lightly buffed the skin with Armani Micro-fil Loose Powder.

To bring out Rachael's killer bone structure, Robin contoured her cheekbones, temples, jawline, and the sides of her nose with Armani Sheer Bronzer. She popped a hint of Armani Sheer Blush on the apples of the cheeks.

To emphasize Rachael's beautiful eye color, Robin crafted a sultry smoked-out eye. She first swept Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Palette in Khaki Pulse over the entire lid, blended into the crease. She then added Armani Maestro Eye Shadow in a deep brown to the outer corners. She smudged a thin lined of Armani Smooth Silk Eye Pencil in Black to the upper and lower lash line. Robin finished the eyes with two coats of Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara in Black. Brows were defined with Armani Eye Brow Pencil in Beige for structure, depth, and contrast.

Robin kept lips simple with Armani Smooth Silk Lip Pencil and a light coat of Gloss d'Armani in Beige Rose.
