Holland Roden at the HBO Emmy Awards after party

Holland Roden's Emmys afterparty makeup: keeping it teal

Holland Roden rarely gets it wrong when it comes to knockout makeup looks. But usually the 'Teen Wolf' star prefers a Hollywood glamour look: a bright red lip and classic cat eye. However, for the Emmy Awards after party hosted by HBO, she showed that she's not a one-trick makeup pony...

Lip and cheek

Instead of that classic red lip we saw her wearing last time, for the HBO party Holland chose a shimmery nude lipstick. She cleverly chose a blush with the same undertones, which made sure that she didn't look washed out.


Our favorite part of Holland's makeup was her eye makeup. She chose a daring color for someone with light green eyes - teal! Contrasted with her eye color, the teal eyeliner looked almost blue, not to mention it matched her dress perfectly.

How did she do it?

It's quite simple.... Holland has avoided eyeshadow altogether and simply applied a teal kohl eye pencil along her waterline and over the top of her eyelids. It looks like she may have then added some lash extensions for that butterfly effect on her lashes, but you could equally use a mascara to get the fluttery effect. Don't forget your lower lashes too!

As with any makeup, make sure your eyebrows go with the rest of the look. Holland has neatened and defined hers to provide structure to her face. If you look carefully, you might also see a little shimmer under the arch of her brows and on the inner corners of her eyes: this makes your eyes look wider and more awake.

Lastly, good job on that messy side braid, Holland. Very on-trend!
