From her dramatic fringe moments and signature smokey eyes to her love for yoga, 40-year-old actress tells what it takes to be effortlessly sexy and spills her beauty secrets:
On keeping her natural hair color: “I wouldn`t do anything drastic to my hair because I think your natural hair color is always the most flattering. If I have to change it for a movie, and it can`t be done with wigs, then I`ll do it but otherwise I like to simply keep it healthy and shiny with hydrating oils and conditioning masks”.
It`s not all about the red lips: “When I am not working, I wear a nude-colored lips as an everyday essential. If you pair it wit a very strong eyes it can be just as sexy as bright red lip.”
On her foundation routine: “It`s much sexier if you can see pores and real skin rather than a face full of makeup. I look after my skin with anti.aging serums and soothing moisturizers but I also love the sun. So when I`m by the pool or on the beach, I`ll always use SPF 50. If I am going out, I will wear a matte foundation to mas any imperfections, or to fake good night`s sleep if I have not had one, but I still like it to look, as if I`m not wearing anything.”
On sultry eye makeup: “Sultry eyes are all about the dramatic fringe, but it`s hard to reach all your lashes with the classic straight shape of a typical mascara wand. I`ve discovered with a new curved wand of Lancôme Grandiôse mascara you can get right to the roots. I`m completely hooked.”
