Get the Beauty Look: Julia Stiles at the 2011 Emmys!

Julia Stiles was a bright spot at the 2011 Emmys' in her Georges Hobeika Couture dress.  However, it wasn't just her dress that looked glam, thanks to celeb makeup artist Brett Freedman, Stiles was glowing.  Below, the beauty genious tells us exactly what he did to get the look!

Julia has such a great face. This is the first time I worked with her. She's a doll.  Loved her classic mermaid dress in soft pewter. To give the look a touch of edge I opted to give her a smokey eye with plum and gunmetal accents to pair with her downplayed mouth.  Bold nails  added crispness and a modern twist. I actually did Julia's hair, too. I Bing'd her looks and decided she was ready for a uber-glam moment. Vintage Hollywood, Veronica Lake waves were in order. Here's the rundown on her make-up look:

Prep: Dermalogica oil free moisturizer for face. I use this as a primer. It's so sheer and leaves the skin with enough dewiness to 'grab' base.

Body bronze: Vanitymark SUMMERSKIN spray on body glisten. Julia already had a glow of a tan. I used SUMMERSKIN to even out her strap marks (not good on strapless!) and give the skin a shimmery finish that photographs so beautifully.

Base: Fresh Umbrian Clay in Sun Empress. I like the soft lift of color this bronzy shade gives.

Concealer: Laura Mercier Camo. Perfect, moveable coverage. Great for under the hot lights of the red carpet. I also used around mouth and along the top of her brows to crisp up the line and make pop (subtly).

Powder: Laura Mercier loose. Universally flattering and dodges shine beautifully without layering pigment on top of base.

Blush: Maybelline Dream Mousse blush in Soft Plum w/ NARS South Beach cream stick over top. I like the lift of color the mousse blush gives and to amp it up I added the cream stick.  South Beach is the perfect bronzy-plum shade to go with both eyes and lips. Love the light catching shimmer. Gives cheekbones depth.

Eyeshadows: MAC. I used a base of wedge all around eye, on lid and up into crease. I then smudged Quarry over top to deepen and cool down the tone. I then added Sketch just on the lash line, top and bottom and smudged out. I applied Idol Eyes with a damp brush to add glisten and tie in the dress. On the brow bone I used Shroom to pop the tail of the brow.

Liquid liner: Urban Decay in Revolver and Shiseido automatic pen liner in Black. I applied very close to the lash line. I wanted the touch of metallic that this liner gives. Very thin line at the base of lashes is all you need. I used the Shiseido from the mid-eye to the ends, catting out a touch to give eyes lift.

Mascara: Benefit. They're Real. When doing a smokey eye it's super important to have a very black, very vivid lash line. I curled, applied 3 coats of mascara, then curler again to get ultimate pop!

Brow: Vanitymark pencil in Blondie. Warm, taupe-y shade that gives just enough shape to brows without looking hard or ashy.

Lips: Laura Mercier lip liner in Plumberry. I applied all over Julia's lips to give color, definition and to lay the tone down for the lipstick that I was applying  as stain, rather than full on from the lube. To give the lipstick a touch of light catching shimmer I used Elizabeth Arden's Starlight lipstick and instructed Julia to apply with fingers after a full application of the pencil.

Nails: OPI The One That Got Away. Love the deep burgundy/plum with a touch of metallic to keep the nails looking modern and naughty.
