Julia Roberts proves it — one crazy eye is scarier than two. Yikes. SIDE NOTE: the image on the left is what Sarah Palin sees when she envisions herself at the 2016 Inaugural Ball. Only in the version in her head, she’s wearing her Miss Alaska tiara and there’s a Winchester bolt-action hanging from the belt.

The rest of the night’s worst dressed in the gallery above!


THE ACCUSED: Claire Danes

THE CRIME: Too much/too dry under eye concealer

THE FIX: Her under eye concealer looks like the kind of concealer made for blemishes — thicker and tackier, so it can stick to a pimple and stay put — not the kind of concealer that’s made for the thinner, drier skin under the eye. Under eye concealer should be creamy and blend easy and have light-reflecting particles to help brighten the under eye area and diminish dark circles. Using powder under the eye is a surefire way to highlight every fine line and crease you’ve got, so pass on that altogether.

Some good undereye concealers to try:

Clé de Peau Concealer is a makeup-artist favorite that wins awards every year. ($70)

Laura Mercier Secret Brightener Pen opens up the eye with subtle pearlescent glow. Works great on fair to medium skin tones. ($30)

Clinique Airbrush Concealer contains light-diffusing optics that brighten dark circles. ($19.50)

Chanel Lift Lumiere Smoothing & Rejuvenating Eye Contour Concealer has a special Liftoptic complex that visibly diminishes the look of wrinkles and fine lines while a Tetrapeptide targets the fluid that builds up under the eyes. ($46)

Estée Lauder Ideal Light Illuminator comes in two different shades — one for highlighting and covering, and another for correcting flaws. ($27.50)

Guerlain Precious Light Rejuvenating Concealer features an “exclusive double-sided Gold Radiance Pigment: The opaque side targets imperfections and dull zones, toning down the appearance of wrinkles, dilated pores, and pigment irregularities, while the golden side reflects light.” It also contains a blend of myrrh oil, which is well-known for its regenerating properties and being baby Jesus’ lamest Christmas gift. ($49.50)

THE ACCUSED: Sarah Hyland

THE CRIME: Too-dark lipstick

THE FIX: I like a vampy lip, but dark lipstick can feel very heavy and makeup-y, so keeping the rest of your makeup minimal and your skin dewy is key to executing this look. Sarah has on too much makeup and too much powder, and the overall effect is very John Leguizamo in Too Wong Foo. Little Latin boy in drag, why are you crying?

THE ACCUSED: Lena Dunham

THE CRIME: Too much eyeshadow

THE FIX: Oh, dear God. Where to start? I appreciate her wanting to incorporate the only good thing about that dress, the color, into her eye makeup, but she should have gone with a teal liner instead of shadow. The shadow is too much and too matchy-matchy, plus she applied it way too far in towards her nose. That’s a do-it-yourself job if I ever saw one.


Girls’ Lena Dunham wore a custom-made Prada wigwam to the Emmy’s last night, and I don’t know who I’m more embarrassed for, Lena or Prada. It looks like a bad Project Runway plus-size challenge creation. I don’t even know where to start with that eye makeup and I refuse to believe that haircut was on purpose. Fortunately for Lena, Julianne Hough’s giant underpants and Peaches n’ Cream Barbie were there to take some of the heat off.

Overall, there was more “meh” then downright hideous — check out the rest of Emmy night’s most disappointing dresses in the gallery above!


Lena Dunham Frumptastic

FIRST PHOTO: The face you make right before you decide to watch an episode of “Girls” on HBO.

SECOND PHOTO: The face you make right AFTER you watched an episode of “Girls” on HBO.

THIRD PHOTO: The face you make while pondering the things you could have done with the hour you just wasted watching an episode of “Girls” on HBO.

So her clothes are vintage and from a tiny boutique in The Village so exclusive it doesn’t even have a name. Lena Dunham is frump incarnate. From the dowdy hair right down to her canvas shoes. I would actually cross a street to avoid walking past someone wearing those shoes and making those faces. I’d assume they had been let loose from a nervous hospital and probably just killed somebody with a lawnmower blade.
