Mary-Louise Parker at the 2009 Primetime Emmy Awards

dressed in an amazing single strapped, deep purple Zac Posen dress, Mary-Louise Parker shined on the red carpet of the Emmy's...

makeup artist Tina Turnbow was inspired by the deep purple and indigo tones in this dress, as well as the gunmetal grey accessories. to play up these colors, Tina brought out Mary-Louise's best features with a dramatic yet classic smoky eye, blushing pink cheeks and nude lips.

here's how to create the look:


Mary-Louise already has beautiful porcelain skin, so Tina kept her face looking pristine by applying Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse in Classic Ivory with touches of Maybelline New York Dream Mousse Concealer in Light under the eyes and to the tops of the cheeks to give a contoured look.


to compliment her skin, Tina brushed on Maybelline New York Mineral Power Naturally Luminous Blush in Gentle Pink to the apples of the cheeks to give the look of a soft natural flush.


Tina's inspiration for Mary-Louise's entire look was the gorgeous opal-toned smoky eye she created with Maybelline New York Expert Wear Stylish Smokes in Amethyst Smokes. she used all four shades in the palette to play up her eyes and add drama, and the deep purples complemented her creamy skin and dark hair beautifully.

she then followed with Maybelline New York Line Stiletto Liquid Eyeliner in Black on the upper and lower lash lines. to showcase the gorgeous jewel tones of the shadows, Tina only applied one coat of Maybelline New York Pulse Perfection Vibrating Mascara in Very Black.


for a barely-there, neutral lip, Tina lined the entire mouth with Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lip Liner in Toast. she then followed up with Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipstick in Nearly There.


to complete the look, a soft dusting of Maybelline New York Mineral Power Illuminator in Nude was brushed along her collar bones, arms and legs for a radiant glow.
