‘Shameless’ Star Emmy Rossum’s Secrets To Beauty Revealed

Beautiful isn’t a word many would use to describe Shameless star Emmy Rossum when she’s playing the role of Fiona Gallagher. After all, Fiona is considered to be a ghetto girl from “the hood.” Nappy hair, dirty clothing, and sweaty skin tend to be style of Fiona Gallagher except for when she’s dressed up for a night at the club.

The actress behind Fiona Gallagher, however, is often described by her fans as beautiful. The question is – have you ever wondered how Emmy Rossum manages to look so stunning? Most would assume, like many other actresses, Emmy just has a good stylist. Those assumptions, however, are wrong. Emmy – similar to her character Fiona Gallagher – prefers to do things herself.

In fact, US Weekly recently dished on some of the do-it-yourself secrets Emmy Rossum uses to retain her beauty.

Outfit Then Makeup

Emmy Rossum is an actress that prefers to pick out her own outfit and do her own makeup before an event. The reason the Shameless star is able to look like she had the help of a stylist is because she selects her outfit before doing her makeup. Once she’s decided what she’s going to wear, she selects a makeup palette with matching colors. Basically, she pulls colors from the outfit she has chosen to guarantee the perfect complement.

Her Hair Is The Accessory

The Shameless star doesn’t always need tons of jewelry in order to bring her makeup and clothing together for major events. Instead, Emmy minimalizes her need for accessories by turning her hair into an accessory.

She Listens To Her Mother

According to US Weekly, Emmy Rossum once revealed a number of her fashion choices stem from advice given to her by her mother. It was her mother who told her to rock red lipsticks with a natural face. The Shameless star has followed this advice several times, and has never regretted it.

Bold Eyebrows

Rossum also revealed that your eyebrows can really define your overall style. According to Emmy, dark eyebrows enhance drama while light eyebrows make a person look younger. The Shameless star also revealed that eyebrows really shape the entire face – making them extremely important to consider.

As those who have followed the latest Emmy Rossum news know, she doesn’t exactly do things in a typical manner. She went on what was considered an unconventional honeymoon and it was revealed that she didn’t worry about things a bride would typically worry about.
