Sofia Vergara has 'strong' eyes for Emmy's

Sofia Vergara prefers "strong" and "colourful" red carpet looks.

The 39-year-old Modern Family actress looked stunning in a coral one-shouldered Vera Wang gown at Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards. Sofia's gown provided great inspiration to her beauty team. Make-up artist Kayleen McAdams wanted to Sofia's face to match the vibrancy of the gown.

"The dress [inspired me]! We rarely do a colourful lip on Sofia -- it is usually a strong eye instead," Kayleen explained to Us Weekly. "We wanted to do something different and playful. I chose a strong coral lipstick and kept the eye subtle."

Sofia wants her eyes to stand out when she steps onto the red carpet. Before applying cosmetics elsewhere, Kayleen focuses on Sofia's eye makeup first.

"Sofia loves to look very feminine and sexy. We always give her a strong brow and lots of lashes (with COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Mascara)," Kayleen shared. "Once we have those features covered, there is room to play with her eyes, lips and cheek color."

Kayleen ensures that Sofia achieves lasting coverage by providing the actress' face with a solid base. Good skin maintenance on Sofia's part coupled with Kayleen's proper application of foundation keeps the star's face radiant for several hours.

"The trick to making [Sofia's] makeup last all night is to set the look properly from the beginning. Sofia takes great care of her skin so we have a healthy, moisturised canvas to begin with. After that I start with concealer, followed by foundation and then set the entire look with powder to ensure her skin looks great all night," Kayleen said.
