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.

Quarter Life Crisis Hero: Emmy Rossum

I recently became obsessed with the Showtime TV show Shameless.  Yeah, I know, like I need yet another TV show to be obsessed with, right? Well I watched Emmy Rossum when she was a guest on Chelsea Lately and the show sounded um…a-mazing so I had to check it out.  I’m only on season 1 right now but guys, if you haven’t watched this show yet, you NEED to.  It’s so entertaining and grossly funny.  Like, in that you have to watch a car crash kinda way.  Get me?

I was excited to see that Emmy is on the cover of SELF magazine this month cause honestly, she is awesome and so is her Shameless character, Fiona.  My favorite quote was from this Shape.com interview from awhile back where Shape asks her how she gets ready for her naked scenes; she says:

I‘m lucky that my character isn’t a Serena Van der Woodsen (of Gossip Girl).  I don’t have to look like an Upper East Side girl; I can look like a real girl.  [My character] Fiona is not a member of Equinox so I don’t have to worry about looking perfect all the time.
