Here’s your Friday night makeup inspiration. Emmy Rossum’s makeup artist tells you how you can get gorgeous too!
Looking for a look that’s guaranteed to ‘wow’ this weekend? Look no further than the gorgeous Emmy Rossum. The starlet attended an event at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC on Apr. 15 sporting a sparkling set of smoky eyes. “She had a regal, princess updo and an edgy dress so we wanted to do a black smoky eye that was still soft,” says makeup artist and Giorgio Armani Face Designer, Maureen Shields. “It’s a young and runway feeling look, but not overdone because she has a naturally soft look about her.” It’s surprisingly simple to get Emmy’s stand-out look. Here, Maureen shares the secrets to getting the stellar star look.
For Emmy’s eyes, Maureen used the Giorgio Armani Nude Contrasts Palette for Eyes in #1. She washed the gold hue all over the eye area. Then, she used the black shade on the lid. “Go right above the crease and soften it with a brush. Pulling it up over the crease elongates and lifts rounder eyes,” Maureen says. She lined the outer half of the lower lash line with the same shadow. “Shadow on the bottom makes it softer looking. It’s less of an obvious line than a pencil. It’s something different.” She lined the top lash line with a black pencil liner and smudged it out. Lastly, she applied the lightest shade in the palette to the inner corners of the eyes and below the brows. “It’s sparkly and pretty under the brow and it brightens the eyes,” Maureen says. Finish the look off with black mascara.
To give Emmy a natural glow and defined cheekbones, Maureen applied Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush in #3 into the hollows of her cheeks. Then, she dabbed Giorgio Armani Blushing Fabric in #3 onto the apples of her cheeks. “Blushing fabric is incredible. It’s very sheer and velvety. We didn’t want to see any shimmer. She wants her skin to just look flawless and keep the focus on her eyes.”
