Emmy Rossum is one of the most naturally gorgeous starlets in Hollywood, so we were shocked when she stepped onto the red carpet of the 7th Annual Spring Dinner Dance in NYC last week looking years older, when only weeks before she looked youthful and fresh at the Ecco Domani Fashion Party. What was the culprit? Too much makeup!
When it comes to makeup, the “less is more” philosophy almost always prevails. While it is great to use makeup to refine your skintone and add a flash of pizzazz to your face, oftentimes, people go over the top, resulting in a look, which makes them look years older.
Celeb makeup expert Su Han offered RadarOnline.com a few make under tips, to achieve the perfect spring “make under.”
Avoid heavy foundation and cakey powder. Instead try tinted moisturizers for fresh, dewy look (Get a Tint by Mark) Dot a concealer only where it's needed (Flash Retouche by Lancome comes with a brush tip)
Skip the pencil and powder Keep the hair in it's place with eyebrow gel instead (Try Brow Polish by Stila or hair spray on a clean mascara wand works too)
Save the smoky eyes for night time and try sheer pastel color as it's the trend this spring (Anis by Sisley is my favorite) or you can just skip the eyeshadow altogether and keep it minimal with mascara only
Heavy, chalky blush is a big no-no Keep it glowy and naturally flushed look with Benetint
No over drawn lip liners please!! Keep your lips juicy with less pigmented lipgloss (Juicy Tubes by Lancome)
