It's not just the dresses that proved to be a talking point on the red carpet at the Emmy's this week. Making waves at the recent awards ceremony with a super sleek up-do and statement eyes was English Rose and newlywed Emily Blunt.

Changing her usual natural styling for something much more Hollywood glamour, Emily's look became the perfect backdrop for a stunning Dior lavender gown. Making use of her light skin and sultry features, Emily's red carpet revamp is a stylish reworking of the 20s screen siren.

To steal the look, start with a medium to high coverage foundation to give a perfectly blemish-free base. Everlasting Foundation by Clarins should give the right amount of coverage and with a press of Rimmel's Stay Matt Powder across the nose, forehead and chin, the shine should be lowered to something to suit the cool finish you're aiming for.

It seems since Emily Blunt came onto screens she has rarely strayed from natural and as this is something that really works for her, it's good to see the calm restyle hasn't moved too far from what works best.

Emily's red carpet look is really about the eyes and although it looks soft and sultry, there has been plenty of blending to get the finished effect. White eyeshadow like Blanc Diaphane by Bourjois and grey shadows like MAC's Print are worked across the lids and sweeps of silver powder like Urban Decay's S&M have been used subtly to add depth.

Where the eyes have really been lifted is on the lashes. A sweep of Estee Lauder's Double Wear Curling Mascara and some eyeliner in dark black have defined eyes and Emily kept lips natural with Tom Ford's newly launched Private Blend Lip Color in Pink Dust. For a similar look try MAC's Cream Cup and a light sweep of rosy blush like Bourjois Rose d'Or will add a touch of colour.

What finishes Emily's look so well is the tight pin curls and loose wave styling by her long term stylist Laini Reeves. By dropping the line with a low side parting and sweeping hair around Emily's cheeks and jawline, the soft, sleek curls and the softly oiled finish are perfect for framing the face and look great for evening wear.

Although we love her usual tumbling locks the curls and up-do work perfectly together. Easily had with some tight curls, pins, a smoothing of MoroccanOil Intense Curl Cream and plenty of time for natural drying, the look is a softly softly approach to glamour styling.
