Get The Look: Emmy Rossum’s Skin

Emmy Rossum is VERY quarter life crisis, so when I got the scoop on her skincare routine from her makeup artist, Jake Bailey, I had to share.  The photo above is from the Jeffrey Fashion Cares Fundraiser hel yesterday, April 2, in New York City.

– Create the perfect canvas for any makeup look – a flawless, glowing complexion – with Bioré Acne Clearing Scrub. Bioré Acne Clearing Scrub gently cleanses and polishes skin without harsh side effects or over-drying.

– Accentuate the eye by lining the top and bottom lash line with a waterproof crème liner. Apply a thin line in the crease of the eye to further emphasize the ‘mod’ look.

-Using the same waterproof crème liner, paint tiny strokes between bottom lashes to eliminate the need for false eyelashes and create a retro feeling.

– Apply a strip of full, black false eyelashes on the top lashes to create a doe-eyed effect.

– Apply a coat of waterproof black mascara on top and bottom lashes to finish the dramatic eye look.

– Highlight using a radiant, creamy concealer in a light shade along the brow bone.

– Apply a satiny lip pencil, a shade or two darker than the lips’ natural shade, to accentuate lips’ natural color while keeping the look clean and modern.

– Apply a crème blush or bronzer to cheekbones rather than a traditional powder blush to keep cheeks dewy and fresh-looking.

– Finish with a dusting of matte powder in a transparent shade across the T-Zone to eliminate shine.

Splurge vs. Steal: makeup removing wipes

So I’m really lazy most of the time and I definitely dread taking off my makeup before going to sleep at night.  Ah, to be 16 again when I didn’t even wash my face!  I recently tried out two new versions that I never tried out before – Biore Makeup Removing Towelettes with Green Tea and Rodial Glam Balm Wipes.  Both definitely did the trick and have their own pluses.  The verdict?

Biore bonus points for:

  • Being infused with the purifying power of green tea
  • Towelettes are made from 100% renewable resources
  • Dermatologist tested, hypo-allergenic, non-comedogenic, opthalmologist tested and alochol-free
  • The bargain price of around $7


Rodial bonus points for:

  • Being infused with skin-calming chamomile extract Vitamin B and Vitamin E
  • Each towelette is made from super soft cotton and feels like velvet
  • Great for delicate skin
  • Paraben-free
  • They just look…so glamorous
