Priyanka Chopra Made This 1 Autumn Colour Work on Her Eyes and Lips at the Emmys
It may still technically be Spring, but Priyanka Chopra made us ready to embrace all the dark, moody colours Autumn has to offer. At the 2017 Emmy Awards, the actress walked to red carpet with monochromatic purple makeup, and it looked hauntingly beautiful.
Her makeup artist Pati Dubroff for Laura Mercier told POPSUGAR what influenced the look: "I was inspired by Priyanka's Balmain gown — it was beautiful, mirrored and reminiscent of an Art-Deco '20s/'30s vibe. As soon as I saw that dress, I knew the direction I wanted to take. This inspired me to create a sultry, shiny and mysterious look for her."
This manifested into a dark, smoky purple eye and matching matte lip. Her skin looked porcelain with just a slight flush on the cheeks. "Priyanka's complexion is flawless," Dubroff said. "Her eyes have a deep red, greasy look – almost a glass mirror effect to mimic the dress. Her lips are deep and dark."
The exact shades Priyanka is wearing on her red-plum eyes are a mix of Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks in Plum and Burnished Bronze ($45). "I'd recommend applying it with the stick and using your finger to blend," Dubroff told POPSUGAR.
Dubroff also added extra redness to the lids using Rituel De Fille Eye Soot in Vescera ($47.42), topped with Glossier Haloscope in Moonstone ($28) for glossiness. Kevyn Aucoin The Expert Mascara in Bloodroses ($41) pull the vampy look together.
Her hairstylist Danilo for Pantene was also inspired by her outfit when creating her slicked-back ponytail. He told POPSUGAR, "There is something cool and contemporary about her hair tonight, and it's a nice way to accent the gown."
The updo, which he also called "sleek" and "chic" had a bit of height at the crown with no flyaways in sight. Her hair was wrapped around the ponytail base, a classic trick to conceal a rubber band.
Since we are such big fans of Priyanka, we had to know what it's like to be part of her glam team. "It's always a blast to get ready with Priyanka," said Dubroff. "She always listens to great music and her best friends — who are like her sisters, and I know them so well — are with us. I always enjoy their company." She noted that overall, there's fantastic music, great company, chatting, and laughing.
Danilo also had a blast behind-the-scenes. "Priyanka has a wonderful energy and permeates the room. Her beauty, happiness, and professional eye all come together to make the person she is. She's generous and very supportive of the collaboration."
