Red Carpet Recap: Beauty at the 2009 Primetime Emmys

Even though some of the dresses were kind of ho-hum, the beauty looks on the red carpet were really lovely (although I think we all agree that the smoky eye was a tad overdone). Here are the best of the bunch from last night’s telecast:

Kristin Chenowith: Hands down, I think she was my favorite. Sleek ponytail, great lashes with what appeared to be a bronzed smoky eye, gorgeous pinky-peach gloss and probably the best skin in the whole place. She positively glowed on stage when she won. Someone should kiss her glam squad because they made her look like a goddess.

Debra Messing: The sleek side ponytail with the swept-over bang brought a take on old Hollywood glamour but the makeup sealed the deal: lashes for days with a bronzed sculpted cheek and pink gloss. Loved it.

Drew Barrymore: This subtle look focused more on the lips than the eyes and it was a refreshing change. Blush pinks and a contoured cheek with great lashes worked beautifully with a pop of juicy lip-bitten red on the mouth. A textured updo completed her take on a classic Hollywood look.

Kate Walsh: Here’s why I loved her look. One, the dramatic eye looks amazing with her eye and hair color. Two, the lip gloss color is to die for and I must have it. Third, her hair looks amazing and she announced that Suave had done her hair. Cost effective and glamorous? Count me in!

Ginnifer Goodwin: The actress went for a gorgeous gamine look with a new pixie style paired with gorgeous watercolor-inspired eye and a pink glossy lip. I’m sure somewhere Audrey Hepburn was proud.
