Stars' Emmy make-up secrets have been revealed.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Comedy actress Amy Poehler's make-up artist made sure her look stayed in place during the Emmys.

Last night (20Sep15) the cream of TV walked the red carpet at the glitzy awards show in Los Angeles. While a lot of thought went into the female stars' dresses, their make-up was also of maximum importance.

Cosmetics king Brett Freedman reveals how made Amy glow.

"I set her look with a light mist of MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Fix to make sure everything stayed in place," he told Fashionista.

Kindra Mann, who worked on Maisie Williams' look, also divulged her beauty secrets.

Maisie stunned in a pale pink number, and her make-up was equally as feminine.

"To beat the heat in LA today, I used Urban Decay oil control setting spray over the make-up to help keep the oil at bay on the red carpet," she explained, adding to HollywoodLife: “I was totally inspired tonight by Maisie’s retro feeling pink dress. I loved that the colour and texture gave it a vintage feel. We wanted the make-up to feel that same way, but with a more modern twist.”

Homeland actress Morena Baccarin wowed in a red Reem Acra dress, flashing both her cleavage and her left leg with a thigh-high slit.

Her dark hair was teased into a chic up-do, with red lips and smoky eyes finishing the look.

"I layered Laura Mercier translucent setting powder on the t-zone after foundation. And before she left I pressed it into the t-zone again. It's about layering thin powder today!" make-up artist Jamie Greenberg said.

The Good Wife star Amanda Peet also went for red lips, adding the vibrant colour to her black Michael Kors gown.

"I have found the key to keeping clients looking fresh is to keep face makeup as minimal as possible - tinted moisturiser, spot concealing, just keeping skin really light and using products that will stay put. Layering is also key. I gave my client Amanda Peet a really strong red lip and layered a lip liner underneath to keep it from moving," explained make-up master Tamah Krinsky.
