4 genius beauty tips from Emmy Rossum
It’s safe to assume most megastars have a glam squad on speed-dial – but not Emmy Rossum.
The actress revealed to Allure.com that she is super hands-on (so to speak) with her hair and make-up each day, and is known to beautify herself before a red carpet appearance. Oh, and she has some handy beauty tricks up her sleeve too, so we’re not surprised she always looks #flawless. Here are her top four beauty tips, plus some buys she can’t go without!
#1. MATCH YOUR OUTFIT TO YOUR MAKE-UP
Before she starts dolling up, Emmy takes her entire outfit into account. “I always pick my dress first. Then I think of pulling colours from it, or from the jewellery, and matching or contrasting it with my makeup,” she told Allure.com. Genius!
#2. BLEND IN NATURAL LIGHT
Emmy knows it’s all about the base, and she perfects hers by blending in natural light. “Blend, blend, blend. Go slowly,” she said. “And look at yourself in different lights. The light in your bathroom might be very yellow, and when you get out into the daylight, your face might look very different.”
#3. LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES
Emmy isn’t afraid to admit she’s made beauty boo-boos in the past, but now she knows that going OTT with concealer does not make for better skin! “I have very thin skin, and the blue veins under my eyes show, so in that past I've tried to cover them using concealer that was too thick for my skin,” she confessed. “It’s better to leave slight flaws than to look overly made-up and clownish.”
#4 SHE’S FINE WITH DIY-ING
Emmy’s no diva. When it comes to getting ready for the red carpet, she’s happy to leave it to the pros, but she’s also totally cool with doing all the prep herself. “I prefer to have a make-up artist do my make-up. It’s fun to learn new tricks and discover new products,” she says. “But if it's the last minute or I don't have time to book someone, I'm OK to do it in a pinch. I never try to do myself if I’m wearing a tricky colour, though.” Um, how laidback is she?! Hello, new girl crush.
