I want to go a little further towards makeup. You have been the world ambassador for Alam for more than a year. What would you say is the best makeup technique you have learned since you started working with the brand?
I don’t know if it’s really a tip or a strategy… it’s just that I have formed a deep appreciation for clean, hypoallergenic makeup. I’ve been fortunate to work with really amazing makeup artists for the whole of my career, but one of the amazing things about Almey is how much these products can make a difference to my skin, especially acne-prone. Alam was actually founded by a dermatologist তিনি he created the whole line for his wife who had breakout-prone skin, which I thought was really, really sweet. I was, this is the man of my dreams!
I need someone who will do it for me! Overall, working with Almey has really changed my outlook on beauty and makeup. To me, the less ingredients a product has, the better. I love that alma mater too Was the first brand to voluntarily include ingredients in its packaging. They have nothing to hide, so that there is always transparency. Not to mention that all of their makeup has been created for people with acne-prone skin, but the products are still amazing! They don’t sacrifice color or pigment and the makeup is still really fun.
All right, prepare yourself. If you had to choose three of your all-time favorite Almay products, what would they be and why?
Oh, let’s see. Well, this line of their lipstick is known as Lip Vibes, and they have many, many colors, but there is a shade called Treat Yourself – it’s a red, but it also has a bit of pink in it and it becomes a kind of my signature red lip color. Then, they have a mascara in a blue tube called length and lift ($ 7), and that’s very good. I’m really picking on mascara and brushes, and it has the perfect brush. And Then, They have All Day Intense Gel Eyeliner ($ 8), which actually stays. They’re great for sensitive eyes, and I mean, usually I’m not a huge eyeliner person, but I like to use it to rim my upper waterline. They have this beautiful brown color called Deep Chestnut. So these are my favorites right now, but they always come out with new fun things.
You mentioned earlier how fun Alam’s makeup is, and it looks like you’ve had a lot of fun with beauty in general. You won’t be afraid to use new hair color or makeup look, which can be scary or frightening for many of us. Where does that fearlessness come from?
Well, it’s really sweet for you because I often don’t feel fearless enough, so it’s nice to hear. I do not know! I’ve always admired makeup and beauty, which I think really came from my grandmother. She wore this iconic red lipstick, and she let me play with her makeup too. I think growing up as an actress is a big part of it. I’ll basically be in my makeup and hair trailer, and I’ve come very close to all the hair and makeup artists I’ve worked with. I think having fun with beauty and trying new things has become a really nice way to express yourself. I think that’s the end of it all – I’ve been very upset about a lot of things in my life, but with makeup, there are constant ways to try and do new things. It’s almost like trying a new identity, because, in my daily life, I keep it pretty simple. I’m not spending an hour and a half getting ready. But if I have a character for a movie or a show or if I do an event, I almost like who I like. Like, Which girl do I want to be tonight? It’s just fun! There are no right or wrong answers.
You’re right – we don’t need to take it so seriously. Hmmm, okay. Is there anything about your beauty routine that will surprise people?
What peace. O God. Maybe I’m not full of surprises. Um, let’s see. Oops! Okay, I’ve talked about my eyebrows before, but I literally don’t do anything with them at the moment. I don’t see anyone tweaking them, and I probably trim them twice a year. I don’t know – some people might not be surprised. But what else is there to wonder? I don’t know… I don’t think I’m a mystery girl! [Laughs]
No, it’s a good one! I was talking to Emilia Clark recently – who has amazing eyebrows – for this same series, and she basically said the same thing. The mystery is not really doing anything.
That’s right! But oh! I just thought of another good secret: me Tax Use a lash serum.
Every night. I swear by it, and it really helps keep my lashes healthy. I have to constantly wear fake lashes or mascara when I work every day, and it keeps them really strong and this is one that I found that doesn’t make your lashes go crazy. It just makes them really, Really Long
