beauty queen: emmy rossum

bold brows and berry lipstick are all we need this summer.

Sure, the eyes are the window to the soul--but when that soul is tired from too much partying the night before, the easiest way to perk things up is with the window dressing, aka your eyebrows.

We're not saying that Emmy Rossum got too little sleep before yesterday's Persol Magnificent Obsessions event at New York City's Museum of Moving Image--because really, she looks flawless--but rather, that her look perfectly demonstrates how a strong pair of brows can completely frame your face. So put down the tweezers, pick up a little shadow to help fill in, and top it all off with a berry lip and not even a hangover can keep you from looking good (feeling good, on the other hand…).

SMOOTH IT: Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen - $14.99
BB Cream is great for covering up the smallest of skin blotches while offering up a heavy dose of hydration.

BROW IT: Smashbox Brow Tech in Dark Brown - $25
This is the ultimate brow-making kit; don't be afraid to mix-and-match the two shadows in the pan, before setting it all with the not-gross wax. (Also: If you're traveling light, we totally wouldn't judge if you then used the shadows as an eyeliner.)

BERRY IT: Maybelline SuperStay 1 Step 14 Hour Lip Color in Infinite Iris - $6.94
We got so stuck on bright red and neon pink lipstick that we sometimes forget how subtle--but ridiculously pretty--berry lipstick can be. This one's looks good on just about everyone.
