Narrowing down my beauty questions for Emmy Rossum was no easy task. Her hair is so shiny and thick, her skin is always perfectly dewy and she kills it with her makeup looks—on and off the red carpet (case in point: the wonderfully bright orange-red lipstick from NARS she wears in the photo below). Luckily, Emmy has her routine down to a science and was more than ready to talk all things beauty.
Clearly, as the brand ambassador for Restorsea, many of her go-to products were skincare-focused—and she has the best skin ever to prove it. But the actress has tons of great ideas when it comes to makeup and hair, too. Click through above for her beauty lessons, favorite products and top icons.
