The Ally McBeal beauty wore a '60s-inspired updo to the Emmy Awards.
Queens, New York-born Lucy Liu dates her interest in hair and makeup to her neighborhood drugstore. "I used to watch my mom put makeup on, and we would go to the five-and-dime store and experiment with whatever makeup was there," she told InStyle. "It was basically L'Oreal lipstickwhich is funny, because I still use it." And her mother now comes to Liu for beauty advice. "She sees how amazing my makeup looks, but it's not me," Liu said. "It's the people putting it on." Although she's no stranger to high-glam moments, when not on the red carpet, the Elementary actress prefers a clean face: "I don't even put on sunscreen."
