The Best Makeup Moments From the 2020 Emmys


Award show season has finally begun, and we are so excited to see our favorite celebs back on our TV screens. Although this year’s 2020 Emmys took a different, more virtual approach, the stars did not hold back on their “red carpet” glam. Whether they were zooming in from their living room or joining host Jimmy Kimmel live in studio (from six feet away of course), looks were being served all night!

Here are our favorite makeup moments from the 2020 Emmys.


Last night, 24 year old Zendaya made history as the youngest woman to ever win the Best Lead Actress award. And she looked great while doing so! Thanks to makeup artist Sheika Daley, the Euphoria star looked stunning with a glowing complexion and intense eyeliner.

Annie Murphy

Another big winner of the night was Schitt’s Creek star Annie Murphy. Taking home the award for Best Supporting Actress, she looked incredible in her tailed suit, slicked back hair and beautiful glam by longtime makeup artist Lucky Bromhead.

Reese Witherspoon

Nominated for her work as an Executive Producer on Little Fires Everywhere, Reese Witherspoon was a vision in black. Paired with a gorgeous Louis Vuitton dress, the actress’ classic red lip and natural glam from Kelsey Deenihan looked fire.

Laverne Cox

Actress and activist Laverne Cox looked incredible as she stepped out to present the award for Best Writing in a Drama Series. With glam from Tay Rivera, her dark lip and smoky eye had our jaws on the floor.

Rachel Brosnahan

Another stunning makeup look from the night was on Rachel Brosnahan. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star looked radiant in her pajama chic ensemble from Christy Rilling Atelier. And her subtle, glowy glam with fierce winged liner from Lisa Aharon made it even better.

Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington brought elegance to the Emmys with two iconic looks. Nominated for Best Lead Actress for her role in Little Fires Everywhere, Washington’s natural beauty was enhanced by a bright lip and subtle eyeliner. And that’s all thanks to Carola Gonzalez!

Regina King

Last but not least, Emmy winner Regina King slayed her own version of a red carpet in this haute couture Schiaparelli gown and glam by Latrice Johnson. The Watchmen actress’ natural makeup paired perfectly with her embellished ensemble, and we are loving it!
