Literally Just 19 Of The Best Beauty Looks From The 2019 Emmys

Consider this my time to give out the beauty awards for best looks served while on the red carpet. 5...4...3...2...

1. Eris Baker had one of my favorite looks of the night — from her unicorn lavender eye look to Swarovski headpiece that'll remind you of Josephine Baker, I was completely sold from head to toe.

2. As always, Zendaya came to slay with a gorgeous smokey eye and a clear gloss lip. Oh, and we can't forget about her statement-making red hair.

3. Michelle Williams gave us a strong case for effortless makeup with a natural foundation and rosy blush and lip sheen. Flawless!

4. Kerry Washington gave us sexy tossed bangs paired with her signature smokey-eye and pink lips. Love the "I woke up like this" look on Kerry.

5. Viola Davis gave us true fall inspiration with her vampy lipstick and nighttime smokey-eye — I couldn't look away.

6. Halsey gave us a fresh matte look with a pop of pink on the lips and it's a look that is easily recreatable on any skin tone.

7. Jameela Jamil had another one of my favorite looks of the night, pairing a bright coral lip and blush with her mint green dress. For hair, she kept it simple with loose curls pulled to the back to really have you focus on her face. WHEW, this color combo is top-notch.

8. Ava DuVernay looked absolutely regal in a stunning smokey-eye with a light contour and minimal highlight. She kept her locs hanging down but pulled them back to show off those beautifully-arched brows, and I am LIVING for this.

9. Mj Rodriguez gave us this stunning hot pink lip that proves that when in doubt, throw on a hot pink and all will be well.

10. Mandy Moore's skin absolutely radiated on the purple carpet, giving us dewy skin and rosy cheeks along with cascading thick curls. 10/10.

11. Taraji P. Henson gave us dewy and ethereal vibes with a matte rose lip and a silky finish on the skin.

12. Regina King played up on wispy lashes and dewy skin with an asymmetric bob with loose waves. Doesn't she look like a literal princess?

13. Kim Kardashian knows what works for her, and I'm not mad at it! She gave us a classic matte face with a nude lip, arched brows and signature smokey-eye which paired beautifully with her beachy waves.

14. Padma Lakshmi gave us this stunning green smokey-eye with a blush pink lip, and I think it's simple yet so chic.

15. Angela Bassett gave us arched brows and a nude pout as she posed for the cameras, not to mention a ton of natural hair volume that just set my heart ablaze.

16. Sandra Oh's textured coif was one of my favorite hair looks of the night, heightened by her exaggerated pink cheeks and pink eyeshadow. Absolutely gorgeous!

17. Greta Lee's freckles shined through her earthy and rich makeup, giving us just the type of beauty look we desperately need to see more of.

18. Faithe Herman nailed the purple carpet1 From her perfectly-coifed side ponytail to her super simple-yet-chic makeup look, she won all of our hearts over.

19. Last but certainly not least, Julia Garner had one of the bolder looks of the night with a metallic orange liquid lip and eye look to match. Put it together with her piercing blue eyes and you have a fire-and-ice combination.
