Year after year, we eagerly await the Emmys not only to see if our favourite show sweeps the awards (GoT FTW!) but also for endless beauty inspiration. We love seeing our favourite television actresses show off their beauty A-game, sometimes akin to the characters they play and sometimes a complete 180 (see the entire cast of Orange Is the New Black, who sure clean up nice when they aren’t in prison garb). With that in mind, we've gathered our favourite looks from this year's red carpet for your viewing pleasure—enjoy!
Keep scrolling to see the most head-turning beauty looks from the 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards!
Chanel makeup artist Matin lined Danes's waterline with the brand's Stylo Yeux Longlasting Eyeliner ($32) in Erable and used the Ecriture de Chanel Eyeliner Pen ($35) in Noir to define lashes and add a wing at the outer corners. The result was this fun, slightly retro look inspired by a Palm Springs party circa 1970.
Hairstylist Peter Butler had the same throwback vibe in mind for Danes's coif (he calls it "Grace Kelly goes to Palm Springs"), which he created with the help of ghd heat tools and Leonor Greyl Mousse a Lotus Volumatrice ($46) for that va-va-volume.
To get the actress's taupe-y smoky eye, makeup artist Lauren Andersen used Avon's True Color Eyeshadow Quad ($8) in Berry Love: She used the pink shade in the crease, the bronze under the eyes, and the burgundy as an eyeliner before finishing off the look with the brand's Superextend Mascara ($6).
As for Roberts's silky, Old Hollywood–inspired locks, stylist Nikki Lee used Unite's 7Seconds Glossing Dry Thermal Shine ($32) to get that ultra-shiny texture.
How gorgeous is Rodriguez's sleek ponytail? Rule number one for stealing this look is to make sure to seal it in: After creating volume and texture with Joico's Hairshake ($18), stylist Paul Norton locked it in with the brand's Flip Turn Volumizing Finishing Spray ($11).
Jones's classic makeup look was created by Rachel Goodwin for Chanel, and Peter Butler styled her hairdo with ghd tools. To get that sheer berry lip stain, start with the label's Aqua Crayon Lip Colour Stick ($31) in Raspberry Red, and add a coat of Glossimer ($30) in Rose Paradis.
This look is a winner, from the sweetly tied-up hair to Hough's dewy skin. Hairstylist Riawna Capri was inspired by the actress's Marchesa gown for the 'do while makeup artist Spencer Barnes used Mary Kay cosmetics and skincare products to get that illuminated glow.

The secret to Washington's luminous, less-is-more makeup look? A glowing canvas: Neutrogena makeup artist Carola Gonzalez prepped the actress's complexion with the brand's Hydro Boost Water Gel ($12) and enhanced the look with Healthy Skin Blush ($11) in Bronzed.
With Shipka's head-turning Dior outfit, hairstylist Ashley Streicher opted to keep the actress's hair look relatively simply—but polished nonetheless, of course. To get that silky texture, Streicher used Davines's Ol All in One Milk ($30) for softness and sheen before combing in More Inside Medium Hold Hairspray ($26).
Cox's hairstylist Ursula Stephens and makeup artist Deja Smith used the actress's gown as beauty inspiration. Her nail look was created with Caption Polish.
Gyllenhaal's complexion looked as gorgeous as always, thanks to prep from skin genius Joanna Vargas.
It wasn't just Lakshmi's sleek styling but also the hair color that was spot-on. Joico's Denis de Souza wanted to take her dark locks a little lighter for the occasion, using the brand's Lumishine color line (available in salons) to achieve that chocolaty shade. For those with a similar color, de Souza recommends using Joico's Color Balance Blue Shampoo ($16) between salon visits.
As for her red lip, makeup artist Patrick Ta used Temptu's Color True Lipstick ($24) in Imperial Red.

Dior makeup artist Allan Avendaño created Hyland's allover shimmer using the actress's burgundy Zac Posen gown as inspiration for the coloring. He used two Dior eye shadow pallettes to create her smoky eye: 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite ($63) in Electric and Exubérante. To cap it all off, Avendaño swept on Dior Addict Lipstick ($33) in Tailleur Bar on her lips and used St.Tropez Tanning Essentials One Night Only Wash Off Face & Body Lotion ($16) to create Sarah’s glowing complexion.
Schilling's punchy makeup look was created by Hung Vanngo for Charlotte Tilbury. For those as obsessed with that lip color as we are, Vanngo used Tilbury's Lip Magic Rejuvenating Balm ($35) to prep the actress's pout before using the brand's Lip Cheat Pencil ($22) in Kiss 'n' Tell.
Meanwhile, Harry Josh gave Schilling's lob some definition and hold with his own Harry Josh Pro Tools 2-in-1 Ceramic Marcel Curling Iron ($175) before sealing the style with John Frieda's Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray ($4).
