Emmy Rossum is an actress who is best known for her role as Fiona Gallagher on the hit Showtime series Shameless. For the 2016 Golden Globes, Rossum really made a statement with her stunning makeup look created by celebrity makeup artist Joe Baker. Using products from Rimmel London, Baker went for a very classic yet modern Hollywood look, which consists of a winged liquid eyeliner, a bold red lip and fluttery lashes.
“Cat eye and a red lip combo have been around for decades so the way I made his feel modern and fresh is by allowing the two colors black and red to feel uncomplicated. No eye shadow, no extra shimmer on the face just the bold liner and red lip – super sexy and ultra feminine” celebrity makeup artist Jo Baker said.
So, is it possible to re-create this makeup look at home? Absolutely. How did Jo Baker apply Emmy Rossum’s makeup for the Golden Globes ths year? What did she do?
For the face, Baker applied the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Primer to prep the skin. After all, for any big red carpet event, it is so important to have a good base. Baker wanted Rossum’s face to be flawless yet fresh without being overdone. As she continued with the face, Baker applied the Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mouse Foundation. Not only is this foundation long-lasting, it is oil-free too. Baker mixed both ‘Ivory’ and ‘True Ivory’ to create an unique custom blend.
As the celebrity makeup artist continued with Rossum’s face, she applied the Rimmel Sculpting Palette Designed by Kate Moss for Rimmel in Coral Glow. Baker wanted to give the stunning actress’s face a more enhanced yet sculpted look. She also wanted to add dimension, but also wanted the skin to look healthy and glowing.
When it comes to the eyes, celebrity makeup artist Jo Baker went with a very classic yet very modern eye. To begin, she applied the Rimmel London Exaggerate Eyeshadow Primer all Rossum’s eyelids. As she allowed the product to set, she applied the Rimmel London Exaggerate Smoke n Shine liner. So, what tip does celebrity makeup artist Jo Baker want to share? “I took the brush I had used before with only the remaining product on the brush. This dry sketch technique gives you full control to design your liner with ease, making it easy to correct or wipe liner into shape until your content with both eyes.”
Using a very fine brush, Baker proceeded to smudge the product deep into the lash line, as if she were creating her own base for the liquid liner. As she allowed the product to set, she applied the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner. “This calligraphy style applicator and pigment rich black ink is a staple for doing cat eyes in my kit” the celebrity makeup artist said about the eyeliner. As she continued to apply the liner, Baker added a fine line in between close to Rossum’s inner lash line, as if she were gently tight lining. As she swiped the product across the lid, Baker began to form the classic eye. Using the Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner tip, Baker used the thicker part of the brush to fill in the areas that needed color.
To finish the eyes, Baker applied the new Rimmel London SuperCurler 24hr Mascara. Is there really a trick to applying mascara? According to Baker, there is. She shared “I recommend turning the mascara wand vertically and using the point to apply further mascara near the root of your lashes to increase volume and further lift!” #BYEBYELASHCURLER
For the eyebrows, Baker applied the Rimmel London Brow This Way Brow Gel to the the actress’s eyebrows. Baker mentioned that Rossum had amazing eyebrows, so this was the perfect essential to help enhance them for the Golden Globes.
To finish the look, Baker applied the Rimmel London’s new The Only 1 Lipstick in Best of the Best. This is a very gorgeous yet true red lipstick with a cool tone. This was the perfect finale to actress Emmy Rossum’s makeup look.
