The Golden Globes may have foreshadowed the year’s biggest haircut trends, but the Emmys 2024 red carpet confirmed one of our biggest makeup predictions for 2024: vampy lips. If this year’s attendees are anything to go by, it’s clear we’re in for another moody wave of goth glam and super bold lipstick.
Selena Gomez, Aubrey Plaza, and Dominique Fishback all wore vampy shades of burgundy and plum lipstick for the occasion. Clearly, they (or as least their makeup artists) agree: Wednesday-inspired grunge makeup isn’t going anywhere. How appropriate, seeing as Wednesday was nominated for a slew of Emmys tonight.
Celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose, who works with Lupita Nyong’o and Lily Gladstone, previously told Glamour that Wednesday-core and goth glam would go even further this year. More specifically, Barose predicted an uptick in “extra bold, extra dark, extra vampy” glam, pointing to dark reds and “plummy” lips in particular, much like the deep shade Gomez wore.
Gomez’s look was created by makeup artist Hung Vanngo, who shared the exact lip combination he used via Instagram. According to Vanngo, Gomez wore Rare Beauty’s Lip Liner in Strong and Kind Words Matte Lipstick in shades Strong (a rich chocolate) and Bold (a deep berry rose; formerly known as Devoted).
“Gorgeous full lashes are from Lashify,” Vanngo continued. “Here is my lashes map: B8,B10,D10,D10, D12. I also stacked some C12 on the outer upper corner for extra volume.” Gomez’s glam matched her custom Oscar de la Renta gown perfectly, which was crafted using 450,000 sequins. NBD!
Of course, Gomez was in good company. Not one, but two other Emmy nominees leaned into plum and wine-inspired hues for their lips: Plaza, who’s nominated for her role on The White Lotus and Fishback, who’s nominated for Swarm.
