When it comes to summer makeup, lipstick is in the spotlight -- and so is actress Stephanie Rothenberg.

Starring as Princess Ann in the Guthrie Theater's production of "Roman Holiday," Rothenberg portrays royalty on stage in a makeup look similar to her own.

"I walked into the theater one day wearing my own makeup for a wig fitting, and they said, 'Can you do what you're doing right now and just bump it up a little?'," she said.

Off-stage, her look is more minimal. Take away the false lashes and heavy-duty foundation, and her favorite products include Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer, YSL's Touche Éclat, Nars highlighting/bronze duo in Orgasm/Laguna, Benefit's Bad Gal Lash and Fresh's Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment.

As for lipstick, Rothenberg tends to favor berry and fuchsia shades from Nars and YSL.

"[Lipstick] is a very feminine and timeless thing," she said. "Growing up, when we'd finish dinner, my aunt would pull out her compact and pull out her lipstick prior to dessert -- it was all very ladylike."
