The Emmys are always a glittering fête featuring the biggest names in television, and this year was no exception. Though we love a red carpet moment as much as anyone (and this year there were plenty of standout Emmys beauty looks), we're always way more interested in the work that goes on before the photographers descend: those magical few hours where it's just the celebrity and their trusted makeup artist and hairstylist.
With that in mind, we got an exclusive look at makeup artist Jamie Greenberg's photo diary with Rashida Jones for last night's 69th annual Emmy Awards. From lipsticks to blinged-out rings, keep scrolling to see what it's like to get ready with Rashida Jones.
“A flush of color is sometimes all a girl needs. A monochromatic blush always makes for a polished look.”
Greenberg used Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush in Pink and Nude ($10 each).
“The makeup spread—so many Almay goodies.”
“Pumping up her lashes. Lashes are always a final step to really pulling every look together.”
Greenberg used Almay One Coat Mega Volume Mascara in Black ($7).
“Matching your lips to your nails is always a good idea.”
“My inspiration was to create a look that allowed her to stay fresh and bronzed but with a deep lip. The dress was so beautiful and flowing with color—we didn’t want to distract or compete.”
Greenberg used Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm in Berry ($7).
“Hair on fleek, flawless face and J. Mendel fitting like a glove. Ready for the Emmys.”
