2016 Emmys Red Carpet | My Top Beauty Awards

Every once in a while, we get to sit down in front of our TV screens, watch our favorite TV personalities but instead of watching them in their TV shows, we see them in beautiful, designer clothing with their gorgeous hair and makeup up, much like what we saw transpired at the 2016 Emmys Red Carpet.

Ah! The red carpet where all things beautiful take their walk and pose for cameras. I wasn’t lucky enough to be there, but I was watching from the comforts of my couch and there were some hits and misses this year but there were also a lot of really good numbers down that infamous red carpet.

2016 Emmys Red Carpet | My Top Beauty Awards

Today I’ve listed down my top beauties of the 2016 Emmys Red Carpet, from Hair and Makeup and how it pairs with their fashion choices, I’m giving you my personal favorites.

Take a look at these beautiful creations by the many talented people who made it possible and perhaps be inspired to create your own red carpet look!

In no particular order, let’s all marvel at the beautiful creatures at today’s red carpet.


Emily Ratajkowski

Can we talk about her makeup? I mean, look how gorgeous she looks in that smokey-kind-of-graphic eye look. One of my favorites of the night.

I can’t help but notice Emily Ratajkowski’s gorg earrings and while I know it probably costs more than my monthly rent, I found this super nice gold tassel earrings at shopwidget!


Sofia Vergara

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] Always the bombshell who would think this hot lady is in her 40’s? She’s definitely goals and her makeup game is on point as well!


Kerry Washington

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] I can’t help but be amazed at how divinely beautiful her makeup is. It looks so natural and so put together you almost second guess yourself for thinking she has makeup on, I love that she let out her big hair because it framed her face perfectly. And she’s pregnant!


Emilia Clarke

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] I love that she paired her flesh-colored gown with simple and elegant makeup. Not over the top, but just right. Oh! She surely rocked the 2016 Emmys Red Carpet given how Game of Thrones became the big winner that night!


Heidi Klum

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] I don’t think anyone can beat Heidi Klum at this game, she always has her game on.


Sarah Hyland

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] When I saw Sarah Hyland’s makeup I wanted to faint. It’s perfect, paired with a simple hairstyle, her look at the 2016 Emmys Red Carpet is another favorite of mine.


Kirsten Dunst

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] Kirsten Dunst’s hair and makeup scream class to me, she looked like a modern-day Hollywood sexy siren.


Sophie Turner

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] Her hair and makeup were gorgeous, she looked like a goddess to me. I like how her eye makeup nods towards the fall season with a dainty hint of old rose and her easy, messy, blonde hair gives her the ethereal look.


Ariel Winter

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] I love how spot on Ariel Winter’s makeup is, it’s just a classy, beautiful makeup look with a sleek hairstyle that creates such a sophisticated air about her. Her confidence is palpable and I love it!


America Ferrera

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] Everyone loves  this darling and what’s not to love? This year on the 2016 Emmys Red Carpet, though, she shone effortlessly with her beach waves andwell-thought-out makeup look. I love that her nude lip color is a glossy color because she looked fresh, bright, and just beautiful.


Maisie Williams

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] Maisie Williams, I love this actress, she already commands a certain presence on TV  with her acting chops and I love her more for knowing how to be playful and rightfully so since she is one of the younger few at the 2016 Emmys Red Carpet. Her matte green eyeshadow played really well with what she’s wearing and her hair up in a bun with bangs framed her face beautifully.


Kristen Bell

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] Oh, how adorable this woman is, I want to talk about how clean and well done her makeup is, and how beautifully laid back her hair is if only to say that it really puts the focus on her beautiful dress! Her dress is gorgeous! I want one!


Emmy Rossum

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] Emmy Rossum looked classy and sweet with a loose finger wave of a hair and a bit of smokey eye. Divinely dressed in all white, her beauty choices speak volumes.


Priyanka Chopra

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] Priyanka Chopra’s red lipstick is everything. I love that she matched her dress precisely although I would have given the look a bit more complementary colors instead of just matchy-matchy for a little bit of adventure.


Tatiana Maslany

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] I really love how dainty looking she is at the 2016 Emmys Red Carpet. The Emmys 2016 best actress’ pulled-up hair and nude lipstick just gave her such a fresh and youthful vibe.


Yara Shahidi


Yara Shahidi looked really beautiful at the 2016 Emmys Red Carpet. There is a certain feel of edginess to her look you just don’t see with everyone else. It must be her hair, her dress, or the way she carries herself because she looks like a classy young lady. Plus, her makeup game is wonderfully spot on.


Porsha Dyanne Williams

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] Her hair and makeup may be a bit too heavy-handed for me, but on her skin and her profile, it looks perfect. I also love her cut out top and her black slacks, it’s a little unexpected which is a good thing especially for an affair that normally draws in dresses.


Ellie Kemper

[instagram url= hidecaption=true width=625] How could someone who just gave birth a month ago look this sexy? Not only is she sexy but her hair and makeup also look exquisite. I love her wine lip and how it perfectly matches with her yellow ochre dress. She looks divine!
