Red Carpet Glam! NARS Makes Mary Louise Parker GLOW!!

It’s not easy getting ready for a red carpet event like the Emmys– it starts very early in the morning and you have to be out that door at 2 PM sharp!
So when you see Mary Louise Parker glowing all day and late into the evening, you know a stellar make-up artist — and cosmetic lne–was at work. For the WEEDS star, it was Tina Turnbrow who created the Emmy look for Mary Louise-Parker with NARS products. was able to get some tips from Tina on how she created the look for Parker.
1. What was your inspiration for this look?
The look and feel of the dress, the shoes, the bag and knowing her taste helped me create this look!
2. Can you walk me through step-by-step how you created this look?
I used an oil-free moisturizer, eye gel and the NARS Sabrina Lip Balm to prep the skin for the makeup.
I started with NARS Balanced Foundation in Mont Blanc
, then applied NARS Concealer
and followed it with NARS Pressed Powder in Snow. I also applied some of the NARS Foundation Powder in Mont Blanc to the chest area. We wanted her skin to have a luminous glow. She’s so fair and her skin has a very delicate, ivory quality about it that is so pretty.

I gave her a beautiful hot pink lip using NARS Lipliner Pencil in Funny Face. After I lined and filled in the lips, I blotted and added a hint of powder to set the lipliner. You can use your finger or a Q-tip to achieve this look. Blotting the lips after applying the lipliner created a gorgeous softness to the lips. I wanted most of the color in the center of the lips.
For her cheeks, I used NARS Blush in Desire and applied it the apple of the cheek. I then used the NARS Blush Brush to soften the edges of the blush.
For her eyes I used NARS single shadow in Tibet and for the crease I used the Duo Eyeshadow in Violetta.
I also used the Eyeliner Pencil in London on the upper lash and smudged it out to create a soft cat eye. I also used NARS Mascara in Black Orchid (the waterproof formula).
4. How would you describe this look?
I would describe this look as fresh, feminine and luminous.
5. How did this look compliment the star’s natural beauty?
She’s such a bright and talented actress and I wanted her look to reflect that. There was something so fresh about the colors used. There is a sexiness about her too – her look was a combination of sweet and sexy.
