With the world on hold due to coronavirus, the annual Emmy Awards awards laid down a virtual red carpet this year with celebrity guests attending via zoom or socially distanced gatherings. 

Whilst some chose to embrace the comforts of their home environment (looking at you Jennifer Aniston) others didn’t pass up the opportunity to get glammed up, including Reese Witherspoon who looked flawless with radiant glowing skin and a signature red lip look. 

Reese’s look was created by celebrity makeup artist, Kelsey Deenihan who prepped her skin with a complete INKEY List skincare recipe to treat and hydrate the skin before applying makeup to ensure long-lasting results. 

Reese Witherspoon’s Emmy’s skincare regime included multiple products layered to help create flawless results, here’s how it was achieved:

Step 1: The INKEY List Hyaluronic Acid 

The INKEY List Hyaluronic Acid

This hero product hydrates and plumps the skin to create a smoother base to layer other products. 

How to use: Use Hyaluronic Acid AM and PM as a first step after cleansing to help draw moisture into the skin and aid other products used in the next steps of your recipe.

Step 2: The INKEY List Q10

The INKEY List Q10 Serum

Full of antioxidants Q10 protects the skin against environmental pressures such as pollution, while helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

How to use: On cleansed skin, after Hyaluronic Acid, gently massage a pea-sized amount to the face and neck.


Step 3: The INKEY List Peptide Moisturizer

The INKEY List Peptide Moisturizer

A nurturing yet fast-absorbing daily moisturizer with a peptide duo that helps support natural collagen and hydrate skin. 

How to use: In the AM and PM, after cleansing and serums, massage a pea-sized amount of Peptide Moisturizer into the face and neck.


Step 4:  The INKEY List Caffeine Eye Cream

The INKEY List Caffeine Eye Cream

This gives the eyes an instant pop by reducing puffiness and unwanted dark circles and prevents concealer from creasing. 

How to use: Apply in the AM and PM after creme(s), pat a small amount of Caffeine Eye Cream around the contour of the eye using your ring finger and follow with your moisturizer.

Step 5: The INKEY List Polyglutamic Acid 

 The INKEY List Polyglutamic Acid

The perfect makeup base or primer to lock in moisture and create a thin veil over the skin, allowing makeup to glide on seamlessly for even application.

How to use: Use AM and PM as a last step before make-up. For long lasting make-up, mix a pea-sized amount of Polyglutamic Acid in foundation for smooth application.


So why is it important to prep your skin with the right skincare recipe before makeup? As Kelsey Deenihan says;

 “virtual awards or not, makeup is makeup and proper skin prep is always essential'. Proper hydration smoothes the skin's surface whilst protective layers and priming helps your red carpet ready glow stay strong for longer. Essentially, a little effort here can create a red-carpet ready flawless finish.
