“As an actress, makeup can change your face and help you to create characters. That’s when you realize just how exciting it can be, how something as simple as combing your brows in a different way can change you. I’ve always liked the idea of the face and body as a blank canvas.”
“I’m a bit of a makeup junkie — I’m a hoarder — I keep everything. You never know when you’ll need that magenta lipstick! I enjoy wearing makeup because I’ve grown up with it. I like to have fun and be experimental. I’ve been wearing lipstick more since it’s become more popular again.”
Where do you get inspiration for hair and makeup looks you’d like to try?
The movies. I love French films and I copy things I see in them. I read magazines and also look at tumblr. I love nails, so I literally just search the word nails on tumblr and start looking.
What type of nail looks do you like to wear?
I love everything! I just bought a florescent green nail polish. I love glitter because it makes me feel about ten years old. I’m totally up for experimenting.
What’s your go-to makeup look for a red carpet event?
I always highlight my eyes and keep everything else neutral. I love blush! A strong black eyeliner and black eyeshadow can look cool too.
What products are always in your makeup bag?
Dolce Gabbana blush, Dolce Gabbana black mascara, MAC Lip Balm in Clear, and a concealer. My bag always weighs a ton. I carry my whole bathroom with me. You never know what’s going to happen in a day!
What’s your skincare routine like?
I always take off my makeup. My mother always told me to do this and I never go to bed without doing it. I use a good moisturizer and Mario Badescu face wash.
What’s your current favorite fragrance?
I have many, but right now it’s The One by Dolce Gabbana.
