Jenna Ortega’s look was simply beautifully executed. Using Dior Beauty products, makeup artist Melanie Inglessis gave the Emmy-nominated actress a pink pout and a pair of lavender and pewter smoky eyes to match the flowers in bloom on her Dior dress. Hairstylist Bobby Eliot then complemented this with silky waves and curtain bangs that framed her face. Meanwhile, manicurist Thuy Nguyen completed the look with the perfect milky and pearlescent nails.

Rachel Brosnahan was a veritable feast for the eyes. Her look was coordinated from top to bottom, from the pin-straight hair care of hairstylist Owen Gould to the purple manicure to match her plum-colored dress. Using Stila Cosmetics, makeup artist Lisa Haron gave the Emmy-nominated actress smoky lined eyes, fresh cheeks, and only a touch of color on her lips with the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Belleza. For Rachel’s nail color, manicurist Vanessa Sanchez McCullough applied one coat of Sally Hansen Color Therapy in Wine Not and a second coat of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in It’s Better Being Bad.

Ayo Edebiri took home another trophy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series at the Emmys. Similar to her previous looks at the ​​Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards, makeup artist Molly Greenwald kept Ayo’s makeup minimal and subtly shiny. The key differences this time were her sultry dark cherry red manicured nails and flipped bob. Behind this sleek bob was hairstylist Ro Morgan, with assistance from Domo Henson, using Maui Moisture.

Camila Morrone

Camila Morrone was a vision of the 90s it-girl, with her smudged black eyeliner, brown-lined lips, and tousled Cindy Crawford-esque voluminous hair, which hairstylist Bryce Scarlett was responsible for. The modern twist lies in her nude pout and feathered brows, all done by makeup artist Mary Phillips using NARS Cosmetics. To replicate her eye makeup, use the Afterglow Irresistible Eyeshadow Palette in shades Magnetism and Midnight, the High-Pigment Longwear Eyeliner in Via Veneto and Last Frontier, and the Climax Mascara. For lips, use the Precision Lip Liner in the shade Morocco and the Afterglow Sensual Shine Lipstick in Voyeur. For nails, she kept it glossy and chic with the previous night’s pearlescent manicure.

Though most known for her character’s Italian bob in The White Lotus, Simona Tabasco kept her hair long, parted to the side, and in waves for the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards. Hairstylist Peter Lux achieved this look using Olaplex, whereas makeup artist Samantha Lau used baszicare to prep Simona’s skin. Between the nude manicured nails, side-part, and matte red pout, Simona looked like she belonged in Old Hollywood cinema.

Meghann Fahy

With the help of makeup artist Jennifer Luney Tioseco, hairstylist Jacob Rozenberg, and hair colorist Matt Rez, fellow The White Lotus actress Meghann Fahy was the picture of Old Hollywood. Jacob used Tresemme for Meghann’s glossy red carpet blowout, while Jennifer relied on Bobbi Brown to give her client a matte finish in all the right places. For the nails, you’ll find that the actress opted for a chic pale pink that complemented her red gown and peachy lipstick perfectly.

Jessica Chastain’s neon Gucci gown undoubtedly stole the show, so her glam team kept her beauty details classic and understated. For her hair, hairstylist Renato Campora and assistant Sinaïa Campora used Hair Rituel by Sisley to keep her red mane straight and smooth. On the other hand, makeup artist Kristofer Buckle used Charlotte Tilbury products to give her skin a flawless and matte finish. Her nude-pink lips are owed to Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk, plus a new shade of the K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick on top for a satin finish. On her nails, manicurist Julie Kandalec used Peacci’s “Jane’s Jewels,” a semi-sheer soft pink with flecks of gold mixed in.

Quinta Brunson

Quinta Brunson was pretty in pink at the 2024 Emmys from her cheeks to her manicured fingertips. The Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series award winner was dolled up by her usual glam team composed of hairstylist Alexander Armand and makeup artist Kasha Lassien. For hair, Alexander kept it classic and chic with a silky side part, using TPH by TARAJI to smoothen fly-aways and lay her edges. Meanwhile, Kasha used products from Beautyblender for her makeup—notably using Liquid Whip Cream Blush in Blissful Berry and Flirty Rose for Quinta’s flushed cheeks.

Jasmin Savoy Brown

Yellowjackets star Jasmin Savoy Brown also came to the Emmys dressed to impress. And with Salvador Gonzalez doing her makeup and Takisha Sturdivant-Drew on her hair, you won’t be disappointed. Key details to Jasmin’s full-glam makeup include her fluffy brows, glittering eyeshadow, brown-lined pink lips, and bright pink blush. Meanwhile, Takisha gave the actress a “twisted crown” hairstyle, carefully straightening and pinning her front and side parts into a low bun. To top the look off, Jasmin chose a classic French manicure for her nails.

Selena Gomez

Setting herself apart from those who stuck by neutral tones and rosy hues, Selena Gomez stunned in dark, vampy glam on the red carpet. Makeup artist Hung Vanngo elevated the look with a bold lip choice, using the Rare Beauty lip liner in Strong, as well as a combination of lipstick shades Strong and Devoted. Meanwhile, hairstylist Marissa Marino gave the artist a slicked-back high bun with the side part exposed and lightly curled. Manicurist Tom Bachik added the finishing touch through Selena’s dark nail color, which he dubbed a “Gothic Glam Black Cherry Mani.”
