From prepping starlets for movie premiers and press junkets to making Victoria’s Secret Angels look even more picture perfect (“Girl, you know I love a Brazilian supermodel”) makeup artist & Los Angeles native Kirin Bhatty knows about a million things about red carpet beauty. Over an “executive lunch”—her words, not ours—at Katsuya Hollywood we dished all things celebrity, beauty, and L.A. and found out what trends she’s dying to see on Sunday’s Emmy Red Carpet.


Want to look like your cup runneth over with youth? Then get your head-to-toe glowy skin game on! And when I say head-to-toe I really mean head-to-toe, it’s the worst when your face is gorgeous and glowy, but from the neck down you look like you’ve spent months in the tundra. Since The Emmy’s are during summer this year it’s going to be warm and I think we’re going to see some serious skin. I hope it all glows.


 It’s been said that a certain supermodel and her to-die-for bold brows have single handedly changed the way we look at brow grooming. Case in point? Brows are Back in a big way and  honestly I couldn’t be more happy about it! I love full brows and have a feeling that we’ll be seeing a lot of them this year on the red carpet. Pair that brow with a model-off-duty inky lash and you have an “I woke up like this” look that’s smudged to perfection, never messy just mysterious, and the perfect Emmy eye.


I know! It’s summer. Bright lips in pinks, oranges and corals would be my go-tos, but those have now become your basic summer shades. And nobody likes being basic. Believe it or not, I think we’re going to see a ton of nudes on the carpet. Parisian chic is so in right now, it’s all over the runways and in every glossy mag…that subtle, sexy look is really current. Less really is more and I’m all about it.
