Get The Look: Emmy Rossum’s Gotham Awards Makeup

Emmy RossumCelebrity makeup artist Quinn Murphy worked with Emmy Rossum for the Gotham Independent Film Awards on Monday (November 30) in New York City.

“Emmy was wearing a black and brown Simone Rocha mini dress to the Gotham Awards. I wanted to do something sexy and to bring out her beautiful eyes. I used black, chocolate brown and camel hues to give the smoky eye effect,” said Quinn.

Here’s how to get the look.

He started by using a very tiny amount of Armani Luminous Silk Foundation #4. Emmy has amazing porcelain skin, so very little is needed. He then lightly filled in her brows with M.A.C. Pencil in Lingering, focusing on the outer third of the brow.

For the eyes, he lined the top lash line with his favourite Votre Vu Pencil in black. It stays put basically forever, so it’s great for long wear at events. He increased the thickness on the outer ends of the eyes and gave them a mini cat like shape. Next he used a duo of NARS Shadows on top of the black liner to create the ‘smoky’ effect.

First, a deep chocolate brown – Bengali – and then a warm taupe called Blondie that he blended past her crease. Next, he linked the bottom lash line with a Kevyn Aucoin brown Pencil Liner. Brown on the bottom isn’t as heavy and one-dimensional as black. He finished with black mascara on top and bottom lashes.

He bypassed blush and instead used a bronzer to keep the look cool and tough. He used NARS in Casino on the edges of her face and slightly towards the apples of the cheek.

For the lip, he didn’t want to do anything too ‘makeupy’ – something resembling her natural lip tone to keep it cool and unfussy. He lined the lip with Kevyn Aucoin Medium Lip Pencil and filled in the entire lip. He topped with basicChapstick for moisture and touchups.

Emmy Rossum In Salvatore Ferragamo & Simone Rocha – Godiva Event & Gotham Independent Film Awards

Emmy Rossum In Salvatore Ferragamo & Simone Rocha - Godiva Event & Gotham Independent Film Awards

Emmy Rossum had a busy day hosting ‘Hot Chocolate for a Cause’ benefit at Godiva before attending the 25th annual Gotham Independent Film Awards on Monday (November 30) in New York City.

Godiva’s ‘Hot Chocolate for a Cause’ Event: The lady in head-to-toe red wore a pleated Salvatore Ferragamo turtle neck dress which was a striking, yet effortless choice possessing plenty of lady-like flare. Her Christian Louboutin ‘Gwalior’ tassel accented pumps really grab my attention here.

25th IFP Gotham Independent Film Awards: Emmy’s second look from Simone Rocha’s Fall 2015 collection, was a richly embellished brocade mini dress which couldn’t have been a more perfect for her colouring. Unfortunately I found myself a tad underwhelmed by the shoes on this occasion.

2015 InStyle Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2015 InStyle Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Many more beauties (and one token lad) joined the mix at the 2015 InStyle Awards, held at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California on Monday (October 26).

Miranda Kerr: Unfortunately, the flirty spirit of the supermodel’s Ulyana Sergeenko mermaid-inspired design was compromised by the unusual bodice and faux cutouts with white seam lines that turned the top half into something of an ice-skating costume. Jimmy Choo metallic sandals and a fun topknot rounded out the look.

Michelle Williams
: Channeling her inner rocker girl, Michelle donned an edgy Louis Vuitton ensemble that brought leather, laces studs, and embellishment to the party. Rather than opt for a black sandal, she kept the tough-chic theme going strong with her shoe-boots, messy hair and kohl-rimmed eye makeup. It may have been a bit much, but it all certainly translated more effectively than Selena Gomez’s Louis Vuitton effort.

Alessandra Ambrosio
: While Alessandra’s skin-baring side cutouts were real instead of illusion-lined, this Alexandre Vauthier Couture white plunge gown was just more of the same from the supermodel who never met a cutout she didn’t like. A Lee Savage clutch completed her typically sexy look.
