Who wouldn’t want to hang out with Sofia Vergara? We’ve got the next best thing—all the details about her pampering party before the 2012 Emmy AwardsMakeup artist Kayleen McAdams gave InStyle.com the exclusive inside scoop, including the inspiration for the Modern Family star’s look: “Caramel! Her eyes, cheeks, lips and skin were all different shades of warm browns and played against the dress [a teal beaded Zuhair Murad].” McAdams also said the Best Supporting Actress nominee and CoverGirl spokesperson is very involved in the primping process: “The one item she could never live without is mascara!” In turn, McAdams applied three coats of CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara on both the top and bottom lashes to lengthen and add volume ($7 at covergirl.com). She also said the vibe in the room could be described as “LOUD!” “Sofia had all her family members with her so everyone was running around, getting ready and chatting,” McAdams told us, adding that they indulged in Fonuts and macarons. What a blast!
