"Orange Is the New Black" star Taylor Schilling was one of my faves on the Emmy red carpet. I liked the whole package -- her pale platinum colored gown, the loose hair and the understated makeup. Makeup artist Tina Turnbow was going for an “ethereal and angelic” look, inspired by the sparkle and creamy tones of Schilling’s Zuhair Murad couture gown.
Here’s how you may achieve the look:
WHO: Tina Turnbow for Laura Mercier
FACE: Glowing, ethereal skin
Turnbow first prepped the skin with a face oil and then used her fingers to apply Foundation Primer- Radiance all over Schilling’s face. (All makeup products are by Laura Mercier.)
She then applied Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen in Nude and covered small imperfections with High Coverage Concealer.
To illuminate the cheeks, she first applied Bonne Mine Stick Face Coulour in Pink Glow to the apples of the cheek. Next, she blended Metallic Creme Eye Colour in Platinum on the back of her hand and dabbed in a bit of the Primer in Radiance. Turnbow applied this combination to the top of Schilling’s cheeks, the bridge of her nose, her cupids bow and her brow bone to give the skin a luminous look.
Lastly, she applied Secret Brightening Power to ensure Schilling’s makeup stayed in place all night.

EYES: Sultry, mysterious copper eyes
First, Turnbow lined the inner rim of the top lash line with Kohl Eye Pencil in Brown Copper, smudging the color out slightly.
Next, she brushed Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Cocoa onto the back of her hand and applied it with a fluffy brush to give a wash of color over the eyelids. She swept the shade out from the crease and applied a little to the outer corner of Schilling’s eyes to elongate and provide depth.
She then added Sateen Eye Colour in Cognac on the lids and along the brow bones to give them a slight pop of copper color.
To highlight the eyes, she applied Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Moonlight in the inner corners and on the center of the lid, providing a bit of sparkle to the look.
Lastly, Turnbow lightly applied Faux Lash Mascara in Black to the top and bottom lashes, providing just enough color to define the lashes.
BROWS: Strong brows framed the face
First, Turnbow filled in the eyebrows with the Eye Brow Pencil in Soft Brunette.
She then rolled a spoolie brush into Brow Definer in Warm and brushed the color onto the eyebrows, which gave Schilling’s brows extra thickness.
LIPS: “Bitten” lips
Using her finger tips, she applied Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour in Sin onto the lips. She kept it very sheer – almost stain like – so it appeared like a “bitten look.”
BODY: Illuminated Skin
To give the final touch of glamour to the look, Turnbow applied the Foundation Primer - Radiance on Schilling’s shoulders and back, which helped to tone down unevenness and provide luminosity to the skin.
