Jennifer Aniston, 2004
Jennifer Aniston is the queen of laidback glam, and she epitomized that look at the 2004 Emmy Awards. She paired her boho vintage Chanel gown with undone beach waves and some very natural makeup. A touch of mascara and pink lip gloss did the not-so-heavy lifting, while Aniston's beautiful face did the rest.

Kerry Washington, 2015
It's pretty much impossible for Kerry Washington to look anything short of the flawless angel she is, but her Emmys beauty look from 2015 might just feature some of her best makeup ever. From the smoky eyes and long lashes to the deep mauve lips and faux lob, her makeup had a distinctively sultry, almost film noir feel to it.

Emily Ratajkowski, 2016
Emily Ratajkowski sure didn't shy away from the drama at the 2016 Emmy Awards. She went for an absolutely gorgeous winged smoky eye rendered in rich shades of green and teal. The arresting look contrasted nicely with her navy dress, adding a chic unexpected pop of color.

Emilia Clarke, 2012
With a slightly teased crown, perfectly groomed brows, long lashes and lips in a fetching shade of pink, Emilia Clarke made her Emmys debut looking about as gorgeous as is humanly possible. It may be quite a departure from her Mother of Dragons look (you know, minimal makeup and a platinum blond wig), but she's completely rocking it.
