Emmy Rossum is always one to watch on the red carpet—the girl’s got style!—but her ensemble for the second season premiere of Shameless last week was especially stellar. Channeling the roaring ’20s with her fingerwaves and flashy flapper-esque Ralph Lauren dress, she looked head-to-toe perfect. My favorite touch? Her intense burgundy lip color. Wine-hued pouts were a huge runway trend for this winter season, but many starlets opt for the obvious cherry shade when hitting the red carpet. Rossum’s deviation from the norm was eye-catching and her deep berry hue lends a modern touch to an otherwise very retro look.
Inspired by Rossum’s pucker, I started to search for a similar shade. The not glossy, but not perfectly matte lip color and finish reminds me of NARS’ semi-matte lipstick in either Fire Down Below or Viridiana.
What do you think of Rossum’s beauty look? Do you like her lipstick?
If you do want to try the more classic incantation of red, opt for Beauty Is Life’s Kingdom color.
