Last night's Emmy Awards were a momentous occasion for Issa Rae. The actress was up for Best Actress in a Comedy Series and Best Comedy Series as the director of Insecure. To get ready for the show, Joanna Simkin prepped Issa with ALLEVEN skincare and body makeup. "We started with the ALLEVEN Stellar Mask ($74), which gave Issa’s skin an amazing golden glow – and was SUPER satisfying to peel off," Simkin said. "We then hydrated the skin with the ALLEVEN Total Face Serum ($141)." Once her skin and makeup was set, Joanna incorporated Eylure’s Luxe Silk Lashes in the style ‘Marquise’ to create the captivating eye that Issa sported on the 'Gram for just $12 at Ulta.
