Get Kristen Wiig's Emmy Look

Get the Look - Award-Worthy Makeup

“The Spoils of Babylon!” star, Kristen Wiig looked stunning at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Follow Makeup Artist Tracey Levy as she creates this beautiful makeup.

According to Tracy, the goal of Kristen’s overall look was to have a soft, modern feel with an edge. So, to go with her beautiful beachy hair, she smoked up Kristen's eyes with soft purples and bronze to give a bit of sultriness.

STEP 1: To keep skin dewy, rub La Mer Serum all over, then a bit of La Mer Crème to areas that are a bit drier. Prep lips with La Mer Lip Balm. Let soak in for a few minutes.


STEP 2: Smudge CARGO Cosmetics Swimmables™ Eye Pencil in Pfeiffer Beach ($18), an eggplant shade, all along the upper lash line, then set it with a deep matte plum hue, CARGO Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Moreton Bay ($16). Use a lighter purple, like CARGO Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Shanghai ($16), to highlight the eye.

STEP 3: Apply long-lasting, brown liner like CARGO Cosmetics Swimmables™ Eye Pencil in Pebble Beach ($18) on the lower lash line and blend it with the CARGO Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Moreton Bay ($16). Use CARGO Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Cyprus ($16), a golden plum, to blend the liner into the outer corners.

STEP 4: Apply Chanel Illuminating Powder in the inner corners of the eye, and line the water line with the CARGO Cosmetics Swimmables™ Eye Pencil in Pebble Beach ($18).

STEP 5: Achieve softy defined brows with CARGO Cosmetics Brow How Kit in Light ($24).

STEP 6: Finish off the eyes with two coats of CARGO_HD Picture Perfect Mascara ($22) to the top and bottom lashes.

STEP 7: Now that the moisturizer is fully absorbed, apply CARGO_HD Pore Refining Primer ($32) all over the face to start the base for makeup application.

STEP 8: Mix YSL Le Teint Touché Éclat Illuminating Foundation in BD 40-BD 50 and CARGO Cosmetics Liquid Foundation in 20 ($36) and apply to face. Next, use Armani Master Corrector 2 to conceal and the YSL Touché Éclat Pen to highlight under eyes.

STEP 9: Contour under the check bones with Chanel Bronzing Cream Makeup Base. Then, highlight the top of cheek bones with Chanel Illuminating Powder.

STEP 10: Apply pink blush like Chanel Creme Blush in Affinite or CARGO Cosmetics Blush in Key Largo ($26) to the apples of cheeks.

STEP 11: Use CARGO Cosmetics Reversible Lip Liner ($16) to line lips. Top off the look with a deep apricot lipstick, CARGO Cosmetics Lip Color in Santa Fe ($22).
