emmy rossum makeup guide

Emmy Rossum attended The American Museum of Natural History Museum Dance sponsored by Lilly-Pulitzer with a really fresh-but-elegant face. Below are some suggestions for recreating the look.

How to achieve Emmy Rossum’s Makeup Look: Whatever foundation you use, make sure it is as close to your skin tone as possible. Do not use any powder unless you’re using a powder foundation. Skip blush, or use only a very pale pink. Ditto for your lips, clear gloss is the best way to go when the focus is on the eyes. And the focus is very, very much on the eyes. Use a black pencil eyeliner to line to top of your lids as close to possible to the lashline as possible. Then use a pale gray shadow to give your entire eyelid a pale wash of color. Extend it only a little further than your crease. Go in with a highlighter (a stick or just a highlighter shad ... Read More

Shop the look for less: NINE OPTIONS for Rachel Berry’s Bow Top

rachel berry bow top

Did you fall in luuurve with Rachel Berry’s bow shirt that she wore on Glee in the episode “Hell-O”? The actual shirt was the Radcliffe yard joanie sweater by Kate Spade –  described as a, “playful puff sleeve confection in superfine merino wool is knit with an eye-catching bow pattern. Features rib detailing at the neck, sleeves and hem”. The price for the top was $78.00. Sadly, it’s no longer available. But the price was kind of steep, so that’s okay. On this blog we like to keep every item reasonably under $100 (unless it’s a big item like a computer or a couch or a pet zebra). I’ve searched around and found nine bow tops that ARE  in stock, and are also really cute. A note for the US visitors – the UK sites I’ve listed DO ship to the USA (I know most of you guys live in the States).  I also believe most of the US states ship to Europe, as well. So, there is very little in-between you and your new, favorite top. Huzzah! I hate roadblocks. And I love this style of top. If you’re wondering, my favorite top from below is the gray tank with the glittery bow.
