Rashida Jones, of Parks and Recreation, glided upon the red carpet at the 63rd Annual Prime Time Emmy Awards looking dazzling in a dusty pink gown that was perfect for her warm complexion. Makeup artist Jo Strettell for Maybelline New York went for a classic and pretty look with oh-so dramatic eyes and vibrant, vixen lips.

Get the look…all done with Maybelline New York

Jo started with Fit Me! Foundation in Honey Beige to create an even natural base, and then polished it off with Fit Me! Blush in Medium Mauve on the apples of Rashida’s cheeks to complement the rosy hues of her gown.

For glamorous eyes, Jo used Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black. She dotted the liner in-between lashes on both the top and bottom and then ran the liner along the top and bottom lash lines, which not only gives the illusion of thicker lashes, but adds drama. Next, Jo used Eye Studio Master Drama Cream Pencil in Coal Commander to set the gel liner as well as line the entire inner rim of the eye. She then applied a shimmery cream shadow to the inner corners of the eyes and as a highlight over the brow bone. She finished the dramatic look with several coats of The Falsies by Volum’ Express Mascara in Blackest Black.

The final piece de resistance was Color Sensational High Shine Lipcolor in Dazzling Plum for rich color and lots of shine and kissable lips!
