On Sunday night, Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl—that's high-gull, not high-gel —won her first Emmy. Not only did she look uber-glamorous in her long gown and red lips but her hair (styled by the talented Campbell McAuley who used Frederic Fekkai’s new Coiff products) was timeless and perfect. Speaking of timeless and perfect, did you get a look at her complexion? Wow.
Lucky for me, I made some fab new friends on my Parisian trip to Chanel and now I've got the inside info on the products used to create Katherine's red carpet look.

- Face: Monika began by applying Chanel Vitallumière Satin Smoothing Fluid Makeup SPF 15 in Shell on Katherine's face. Then, she applied a touch of Pro Lumière Professional Finish Concealer in Light under her eyes and to any red areas and then she finished by dusting some Soft Touch Pressed Powder in Pêche Tendre over her entire face.
- Cheeks: To add a touch of color to the perfect canvas, Monika swept one stroke of Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Narcisse and another stroke of Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Nude onto Katherine's cheeks.
- Eyes: Next, Monika applied a little bit of Fluid Iridescent Eye Shadow in Sand and Silky Eyeshadow Duo in Dessert Rose to her lids, blending well. Then, she lined Katherine's eyes with Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Ebène (only on the top) and finally topped her top lashes with Inimitable Mascara in Noir and her bottom lashes with Inimitable Mascara in Bronze.
- Lips: To make Katherine's lips really pop, Monika lined them first with Precision Lip Definer in Red and then filled them in with Rouge Allure Satin Finish Lipstick in Lover. Here's a tip for you: Monika used a little bit of Pro Lumière Concealer as a reverse lip liner to perfect the red lip and then powdered between coats to provide staying power.
