Emmy Rossum doesn't use a stylist.

The 'Shameless' star has an impressive two walk-in closets in her Hollywood home but says she has used her own contacts to help fill them.

She said: ''I surf the Web to see the runway shows and then figure out who The Fashion publicists are and e-mail them myself.''

Emmy says she likes to experiment with her look but admits the risk doesn't always come off.

The 25-year-old beauty says she once wore Swarovski crystals on her eyelids to a high-profile event in 2007 and has never lived the look down.

She told InStyle Hair: ''Anytime you Google 'bad celebrity makeup,' that comes up.

''I looked as if a tranny clown pooped on my eyes! But I think it's good to take chances.''

Emmy also admitted she doesn't get to dress up that much when she's playing her 'Shameless' alter-ego Fiona Gallagher.

She said: ''It's changed my thoughts on beauty because Fiona is not about perfection. She just looks real, and I think people find that beautiful.''
