Sandra Oh: Emmy Awards

Mai did Sandra Oh's makeup at the 60th Annual Emmy Awards last night. Mai wanted her makeup to be bold but delicate to complement her tiered Oscar de la Renta gown. She created her look with a bevy of items from mark cosmetics. On her eyes, she used mark I-Glimmer Illuminating Eye Color in Smoked and I-Mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Corset and lined her eyes with On the Edge Hook Up Liquid Eyeliner in Cleo. Lashes were coated with Make It Big Lash Plumping Mascara in Raven. For blush, she used Good Glowing Mosaic Blush Custom Color Palette. For lips, she used Dew Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color in Rain.

Lash Envy: Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Mascara

We are always on the search for great mascara. It's a love/hate relationship, really. So as soon as I saw Givenchy’s Phenomen’Eyes in In Style, I knew I had to try it...and was hoping it would be all kinds of love. It became an obsession. I couldn’t stop fantasizing about that rounded applicator. It was one of those moments where you go, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Finally, Mai and I made a trip to Sephora and picked up one tube each. I have to admit, the rounded wand is amazing and genius and makes mascara so easy to apply. Because of its shape, you can get lashes at the base, tips and it even reaches those baby lashes at the inner and outer corners that are impossible to get with a conventional mascara wand. The best part is someone asked if I had fake lashes on the other day. Uh-huh. The verdict is in. Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes gives good lash. Our only complaint? The actual mascara is a little sticky for our taste, but with lashes this great we can deal with a little stick. Available at
