Mischo Beauty Award: 2010 Emmy Awards

The Mischo Beauty Award for the 2010 Emmy Awards goes to Christina Hendricks, supporting actress nominee for her role in "Mad Men". Wearing a lilac Zac Posen gown, with her signature red hair, Christina's makeup was inspired by Mia Farrow's iconic character from "The Great Gatsby." Celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali gave use the details on Christina's look:

Vanessa prepped the skin with Lancome's La Base Pro. To perfect Christina's already luminious skin, Vanessa used Lancome's new Teint Miracle Lit-From-Within Makeup. "It has an amazing transparent quality that leaves the skin looking flawless and luminous without being shy," said Vanessa. "I applied it with a brush and then blended with my fingers." Blending with her fingers heated up the foundation a bit, allowing for a seamless finish. Vanessa followed with Effacernes Concealer under the eyes, her "all time favorite concealer."

For a fresh pop of color I used Lancome's Blush Subtil Shimmer in Pink Pool on the apples of her cheeks. Dabs of Giorgio Armani Beauty's Fluid Sheer #2 highlighted Christina's cheekbones.

The eye shadow was a mix of YSL's Ombre Solo Eyeshadow in Cashmere Brown and Midnight Black. "I applied there all over her lid, under the bottom lashes and blended it out past her natural lash line to softly elongate the eye," reported Vanessa.

Eye Liner:
To define and elongate the lash line, Vanessa lined the eyes with Lancome's Le Crayon Khol in Black. "I used a touch of liner under her bottom lashes but smudged it for a softer look," said Vanessa. For added depth, Vanessa used Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner in Noir at the very base of Christina's lashes.

Several generous coats of Lancome's Definicils Waterproof Mascara in Black were used on the top and bottom lashes.

Christina's lips were a mix of Lancome lip colors for an effect that Vanessa described as "red with a little dash of pink." A sheer coat of Color Design Matte Lipstick in Corset was topped by Laque Fever Lipshine in Cyber Coral.

I loved her look! Who was your favorite and why?
