Get Danes’ Emmys look

How to get Claire Danes' elegant 2013 Emmy Awards make-up look.

The actress stunned at the weekend's awards ceremony with her simple, yet elegant look.

Wearing a nude, backless and lacy Armani Prive number, the star made sure her make-up further complemented the stunning gown.

Her make-up up artist, Matin Maulawizada, from Laura Mercier, has described step by step how to recreate her flawless finish.

"For the face, the aim is flawless, matte skin with illuminated cheeks," said Matin.

First prep the under-eye area using the Repair Eye Serum. Then massage Laura Mercier Foundation Primer into the skin to create an even canvas for later make-up application.

Next, the Oil Free Suprême Foundation in Golden Beige is applied all over the face and the Smooth Finish Foundation Powder for the jaw line.

To create the natural flush Claire sported, apply the Crème Cheek Colour in Sunrise to your cheeks.

Get your own illuminated glow by applying Caviar Stick Eye Colours in Sterling and Sugar Frost to your cheekbones.

To ensure make-up stays in place all night, set the look with Pressed Setting Powder in Translucent.

"The lips are both bright and matte" explained Matin, who created the dramatic lip using Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour in Mod.

"For the eye, a subtle shimmer which will contrast a matte face," said Maulawizada.

Apply Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony and Crème Eye Liner in Noir along your lash line.

Next blend Caviar Stick Eye Colours in Sterling and Sugar Frost and applied them all over your lids, up to the brows.

Add a final touch of glamour by applying Faux Lash Mascara.
