It has been a while since the last major award season red carpet event. The beauty looks from the 2018 Oscars are but distant memories and no one likely remembers the hair and makeup at the 2018 Golden Globes, no matter how fabulous the looks. So the 2018 Emmy Awards needed to fill a big void in our beauty-obsessed hearts — and it delivered.
The Emmys may have been on a Monday night, but it brought the Sunday night glamour. It seems makeup artists and hairstylists used the time away to recharge their creative batteries and get experimental. There were a few glam teams that set out to make us rethink our stance on old beauty rules, particularly the idea that matching makeup to outfits is dated. We even saw a few trends carry over from NYFW, such as hair embellishment.
Unfortunately, with everything good there must be some bad and a few unconventional looks weren’t carried off as successfully as we hoped. Click through the gallery above to see the most head-turning beauty looks from the 2018 Emmy Awards.
