Get the Look: Christina Hendricks at the 2012 Emmys

Who: Christina Hendricks

What: 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

Hair Stylist: Gregory Russell  for John Frieda

Inspiration:  Taking inspiration from Christina’s platinum Christian Siriano dress, celebrity stylist, Gregory Russell created big Hollywood waves for the red carpet. Russell described Christina’s look as “sophisticated old Hollywood Glamour.

  Step 1 – Texturize

On dry hair, apply Frizz-Ease® Curl Reviver Styling Mousse ($5.99 at drugstores) to 1″ sections until all of the hair has been covered. This is to build texture while taming frizz. Brush hair using a Mason Pearson flat brush to dry out the mousse and create volume.

Step 2 – Secure the Style

Take hair in 1″ sections, spray with Frizz-Ease® Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray ($5.99 at drugstores) and wrap around a 1″ barrel curling iron. Pin each curl and let them set for 45 minutes. Brush out each curl and then backcomb the underneath to add extra fullness and shape.

Step 3 – Polish

Use a dime size amount of Frizz-Ease® Secret Weapon® Flawless Finishing Crème ($5.99 at drugstores) through the bangs to create perfect definition and added shine. To finish, mist a thin coat of hairspray in an even, all-around motion, to set the look.

Makeup Artist: Vanessa Scali

Inspiration:  I was inspired by the soft, feminine look of the dress and its cool, shimmery neutral color against her skin. I kept her face soft and romantic, but added contrast and strength with a bold lip color.”

Cheeks: Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Flush was applied to the apples of the cheeks blending outward to the cheekbones.

Eyes: For definition and intensity, she lined her eyes with Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Liner in Ebony at the base of the lashes and on the inside top rim of the eye. Using the lighter shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy, she swept the color from the lash line to the eye brow. Then, she used a touch of the deeper shade blending it well, from the lash line to just above the crease and swept past the natural outer corner to exaggerate and elongate the eye. This color continues very subtly under the bottom lashes. She finished the eyes with lush, flirty lashes – Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara was used all over the lashes and Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer concentrated on the center of the lashes.

Lips: She gave Christina a bold, strong lip with Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon.
