A Step by Step Guide by her Makeup Artist Melissa Walsh
Rachel Brosnahan’s go-to red carpet makeup artist Melissa Walsh, whose impressive range of clients span from Zac Posen campaigns to Bazaar to Rolling Stone, and then to Debbie Harry, Carine Roitfeld and Vogue Italia, is a big fan of Hynt’s pure formulations and colors and she gave us some “hynts” how she created Rachel’s look for the Creative Arts Emmy Awards using some of her favorites from yours truly.
To get Rachel’s naturally radiant but still sophisticated complexion and refined feminine look, take these pointers from Melissa on how she achieved her red carpet look. We think it looks just as fitting on the red carpet as it will for tomorrow’s lunch date!
SKIN: Great Coverage without the Weight
Because Rachel has a flawless, beautiful complexion and very fair skin, Melissa usually holds back on using too-thick liquid foundations and powders. This time, she used a combination of a lightweight tinted moisturizer and the DUET Perfecting Concealer in Fair to even out her complexion and lightly dusted translucent loose powder on top to set.
For Cheeks, Rachel is wearing the ALTO Radiant Powder Brush in Passion Pink, a soft petal pink color that adds just enough color so skin looks lit from within.
EYES: Accentuating your Eye Color
Melissa used our NOCTURNE Mascara to define, separate and add a natural fluttery volume to the lashes, brushing it through as she applied and then added individual lashes for added red carpet oomph.
Lips: For lips, Melissa first applied a light layer of a soft pink lipstick and topped it with LIBRE Luxurious Lip Gloss in Pearly Rose Pink. Rachel loves this gloss for its smooth, non-sticky finish and pure formulation.
