We spoke to CoverGirl makeup artist Kayleen McAdams, mastermind behind Vergara's Emmys makeup (and yes, Rachel McAdams' sister) for her step-by-step guide to recreating Vergara's look.
Face: "I started with a concealer (COVERGIRL Invisible Concealer in Honey, $4.39) under her eyes and wherever she needs a little extra coverage. I then used COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Foundation in Soft Honey (#255), $13.99, and set it with COVERGIRL Clean Pressed Powder in Warm Beige (#145), $6.99, for a flawless finish. After that I used COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in Plush Peach, $10.49, and set that cream blush with COVERGIRL Classic Colors Blush in Natural Glow, $5.49.
Eyes: "For her eyes, I used COVERGIRL Queen Collection 1-Kit Eyeshadow in Hot Toffee, $3.19, in the crease, followed by COVERGIRL Liquiline Eyeliner in Black Fire, $8.79, which I swiped along the top and bottom lashline to help add definition. To set the eyeliner, I used COVERGIRL Queen Collection 1-Kit Eyeshadow in Black Tie, $3.19, along the top and bottom lashline to prevent smudging, and I topped off her lashes with several coats of COVERGIRL Lash Blast Volume mascara in Very Black, $7.79."
Lips: "I sent her off to the red carpet stocked with powder and her favorite lipstick. COVERGIRL LipPerfection Lipcolor in Rapture (#280), $6.99, is a bright coral that I rarely do for Sofia, but we wanted to do something different and playful for the big night."
And that's how it's done, a simple and elegant look that's glamorous enough for a red carpet but easy enough to do at home. Want more expert tips? Check out these.
