Kerry Washington’s Red Lip

Scandal star Washington, who was a presenter at last night’s Emmys, seamlessly rocked a bold red lip. But her pout wasn’t the only thing making a statement: The actor paired the look with a smoky eye for extra drama.

Issa Rae’s Purple Eyeshadow

Not only was Rae’s makeup completely gorgeous (that metallic purple tho!) but it was done using e.l.f. Cosmetics products... none of which cost over $15.

Jurnee Smollett’s Goth Lipstick

Smollett opted for a vampy lip — Rouge Dior lipstick shade 910 “Ardent Velvet” — which served as a fierce contrast to her pale, flowing Dior gown.

Kaley Cuoco’s Nude Perfection

Compared to her highlighter-yellow Vera Wang Gown, Cuoco’s makeup was very subtle. Her makeup artist Jamie Greenberg used products from Charlotte Tilbury’s Super Nudes collection for natural-looking neutrals.

Michaela Coel’s Vivid Liner

Coel, who won her first Emmy last night for I May Destroy You, rocked neon yellow liner on top of her cat eye. The bright hue was the very same shade as her Christopher John Rogers ‘fit.

Elizabeth Olsen’s ’90s-Inspired Makeup

Olsen’s matte makeup look was created by Chanel makeup artist Pati Dubroff, who says she was inspired by ’90s supermodels — think brown eyeshadow, a dark nude lip, and matte finishes.

America Ferrera’s Turquoise Eye

Celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder went with a stunning turquoise eyeliner on Ferrera, a hue that matched the star’s earrings. She topped off the look with a berry lip: Beautycounter’s Color Intense Lipstick in Twilight followed by the brand’s Beyond Gloss in Black Plum.
