Huffington Post - 5 months
If you watched the Emmy Awards red carpet Sunday night, you might have noticed a few things: a lot of yellow gowns, for starters, and Sarah Paulson and Kerry Washington completely obliterating the game, for finishers.  One thing you may not have picked up on?

All of them, of course, looked stunning and are totally inspiring our next night out makeup routine: Big lashes and minimal liner anyone? Take a look at some of our favorite looks from the night below. But fear not, heavy eyeliner enthusiasts. Emily Ratajkowski was on hand to satisfy your dramatic eye makeup craving.
