Emmy Rossum dazzled on the red carpet at the 4th Annual Critic’s Choice Television Awards in more ways than one.
The fuchsia Monique Lhuillier gown was paired with a rich coral lip.
Take notes, because fun hues are replacing the classics in beauty. High intensity shades can be worn on any complexion and are an easy way to update your normal routine.
Emmy’s makeup artist for the evening, Jo Baker, says that experimenting with bold tones is something that every woman should try.
Her tips make it easy for anyone to take a shot at the trend and also recreate Emmy’s look.
First, lips were prepped using Chanel Hydra Beauty Nourishing Lip Care. Generously moisturizing before applying lipstick helps the product glide on evenly while also minimizing cracked skin.
There’s nothing worse than wearing a bold color that highlights dehydrated crevices.
After massing the balm in, Givenchy Le Rouge in 201 Rose Taffetas was applied in several layers. The multiple coats maximize the pigment’s saturation.
Take a closer look and you’ll notice that the color doesn’t stop there. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Pool Boy was smudged into Rossum’s lash line, creating an aquatic haze.
If you’re not quite ready to mix two extreme shades, Baker recommends pairing slightly off hues to subtly intensify saturation. For instance, try mixing red with orange. The two tones will appear soft yet striking at the same time.
