There is not much on the Emmys 2021 that feels relatable. Do you have designers who are clamoring to lend you a dress and world-class makeup artists at your disposal? No and unfortunately no. Delivering a tearful speech in front of a room (or tent, due to this year’s pandemic precautions) full of celebrities? Nope. But there is an exciting way, at least when it comes to beauty, to bring the stars down to Earth – with affordable drugstore beauty products. Tonight, Issa Rae does just that.
Actor, screenwriter, director and creator of Unsafe (who missed the 2021 Emmy eligibility period by a hair) and executive producer / co-star of Black lady sketch show (for which she is nominated for two awards) showed up on the red carpet with a face full of ELF cosmetics applied by makeup artist Joanna Simkin.
Every item of Rae’s lavender look, including skincare and makeup, sells for $ 15 cheaper – especially impressive when it comes to her lavender eye shadow, which looks like a million dollars. The bold effect is courtesy of Simkin’s handwork and ELF’s $ 3 bite-sized shadow palette in AÃ§aÃ You. (Another way Rae is relatable? She couldn’t wait to kick off her full look and posted this teaser from the glam chair – mimosa in hand.) With a beauty look so shiny, we can’t wait to see what’s up. other Rae has in store for the red carpet.
