Claire Danes at the 64th Primetime Emmys

Look by: Matin Maulawizada, Global Artistry Director for Laura Mercier

Matin describes his inspiration for Claire’s look as a “casual nod to old Hollywood glamour.”

Available colors for Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil


  • Claire’s smoky, seductive eyes were the focal point of the look. 
  • Matin used Laura Mercier Eye Pencil in Extreme Black ($20) to define Claire’s eyes. 
  • He then heavily lined her eyes using Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Gold ($20). The pencil’s golden base colour complemented the star’s electric yellow dress. 
  • Matin completed the dramatic look by applying Laura Mercier Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Burnished Copper ($22) and Laura Mercier Sequin Eye Colour in Black Ice ($22) to Claire’s lids. 


  • Nude lips modernized the glamorous look. 
  • Matin layered Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Praline ($20) and Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Angelic ($26) to achieve Claire’s soft, matte lip colour. 


  • Matin chose to enhance the expecting star’s natural glow and created a “healthy flush using bright pink blush.” 
  • To achieve a flawless face, Matin first applied Laura Mercier Moisture Suprême Foundation in Sunny Beige ($43). 
  • He then covered imperfections using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-3 ($30). 
  • Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander ($22) was then heavily applied to Claire’s cheeks. 
  • The look was set with Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Translucent 
Here’s the look I got using the Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Gold on my waterline. I don’t generally put liner on my waterline but I definitely like this look. The other cosmetics were things I had here that I tried to match as closely as possible to Laura Mercier products.

    I thought it was just two pictures of Claire Danes! No? Oh the last one is you! Very nice!

  2. Very nice. Love the colors on you and it was nice to see CD’s beauty regimen for the event.

  3. I love it, I think it turned out really similar to hers! You did a great job. I never wear eyeliner on my waterline either but maybe I should try it, just to see 🙂

    I love the eyeliner!

  7. Lisa Weidknecht says

    YOUR eye make up looks much better than hers, just sayin’.

  8. This is a stunning look. I never use eyeliner but I don’t know why…it really adds some oomph to the appearance of the eyes. I should experiment with it again. I guess it’s bad memories from when I was like 15 and using purples and blues and whatnot. LOL.

  9. LOVE MELISSA:) says

    I love your eye makeup. Smokey eyes is so big now!

  10. I really like how you did the eyes, adapting her smokey look, but still keeping it sophisticated!

  11. I love how you were really able to clone her look, yet make it your own.

  12. I have always loved Claire Danes and you did a fabulous job making your makeup look like hers!

  13. Paula Robinson says

    great job matching the makeup!! Have not tried these products… but I might now!

  14. Pretty eye liners!

  15. Very nice! I use eyeliner daily but it never looks quite so nice!

  16. Great look Ellen!! You did a great job!
