Owning It: Christina Hendricks On How She Gets So Dang Perfect

When we think about which ladies in Hollywood in whose skin we'd most like to spend a day in, one of the ladies at the tippy-top of our list is Christina Hendricks. Along with her perfect complexion, shiny red hair, pouty lips...ok, her everything, we're nuts for her confidence and, above all, her love for all things beauty.
Unlike some celebrities who claim to only wear concealer on their days off (what is the fun in that, we ask?), Hendricks admits to enjoying the primping process when she gets to execute it herself. A devotee of hot rollers, Hendricks swears by a product combo of Aveda's Volumizing Tonic, Redken's Spray Starch, and Oscar Blandi's Texture & Volume Spray to give her the perfect voluminous-yet-natural waves. When it comes to her skin, Hendricks swears by SPF 50 by day and Kiehl's Midnight Recovery by night. And one of our favorite anecdotes? While the gorgeous star admittedly appreciates luxury, Hendricks still uses the same basic concealer that she used as a teen — the gloriously cheap CoverGirl Smoothers.
