Get the Look: Emmy Rossum at the 2013 Met Gala

Last night was the illustrious Met Gala and this years theme was PUNK: Chaos to Couture. And Emmy Rossum got it right, showing a bit of glamour meets Goth. Her makeup was flawless thanks to NYX Cosmetics. Emmy wore a gorgeous one-of-a-kind Donna Karan Atelier gown and rocked a “luxurious rebel” makeup look. Celebrity Makeup Artist Jo Baker used NYX Cosmetics, here’s how you can get her look:


To create a dewy look with medium coverage, Baker started with NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation in Nude. She paired the liquid foundation with NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation in Creamy Natural to bring out Emmy’s beautiful skin and natural complexion. Baker then applied the NYX Green Tea Blotting Papers to ensure the durability of Emmy’s makeup.


To create the perfect sculpted cheek, Baker swept NYX Highlight & Contour Powder on the sides of Emmy’s cheekbones and down her nose. To add a healthy glow to Emmy’s skin, Baker then blended the contouring powder with NYX Powder Blush in Natural on the apples of Emmy’s cheeks up to her hairline. She then applied NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam along Emmy’s collarbone and shoulders for a shimmery highlighter that would reflect perfectly off the bright lights of the Met Ball cameras.


To create a strong canvas for Emmy’s dramatic eye makeup, Baker started with NYX Eye Shadow Base in White.  Baker then applied NYX Cream Shadow in Chocolate to create the overall shape and dimension of the eye and eyebrow. She added extra definition by pressing the NYX Roll On Eye Shimmer in Onyx with her finger onto the outside of the eyes and then blending with a flat brush. She then softened the shimmer of the shadows with NYX Nude Matte Shadow in Tryst to make the smoky eye makeup look more sophisticated and wearable. NYX Kohl Kajal Black Liner was used to create a winged liner that extended to the outside of Emmy’s eyes and blended up to the eyebrows. To complete the look, Baker applied NYX Propel My Eyes Mascara heavily on her top lashes.


Keeping the focus on Emmy’s strong eyes and brows, Baker finished her look with a soft peach lip color using NYX Round Lipstick in Fortune Cookie. “This rock ‘n’ roll girl may stay out all night at the punk show- but she’s coming home, taking off her makeup and putting on a face mask- keeping it classy!” said Baker.
