What's your typical makeup routine like?
"I don't spend much time on my makeup routine at all. I really only spend 10 minutes. I'll use Revlon's CC cream, some eyeliner, some mascara, fill in the brows, and then something moisturizing on my lips, like the Lip Butters. Then, I'm good to go."
What are some of the best makeup tricks you've learned over the years?
"My best makeup secret is learning to blend. I love using a sponge like a BeautyBlender and getting it damp first. You end up using a lot less foundation if you dampen the sponge before you blend, and then you get kind of dewy. So, that's a good makeup artist secret!"
What's your go-to evening look?
"I'd say an eye, like a metallic eye. I'm more comfortable with a bold eye instead of a lip, because once it's done, it's done. With a bold lip, I know that I might eat something, kiss someone hello — I mess up lipstick pretty immediately. I mean, I still love it, but I feel like if I'm going to a party and I want to feel really confident, I'll just go for the metallic eye."
What about your hair? Do you have any tricks?
"Man, I wish I could do more interesting hairstyles, like braids and updos, but I keep it pretty simple. When in doubt, I think of the French. So simple and perfect and chic. I was doing a roundtable with different actresses, and Adèle Exarchopoulos from Blue Is The Warmest Color was there. Greta Gerwig and I were just in awe. [Exarchopoulos] was in flats, with her hair messy and loose, wearing just lipstick and mascara, and she looked perfect. When in doubt, keep it simple."
What's your personal philosophy about anti-aging skin care?
"Well, my mom, who's a fox, was always telling us to get out of the sun as kids. She'd be like, 'Get out of the sun, use moisturizer, take care of your skin.' She was a California teen, and fried her skin — she's aged beautifully, but she's always lamenting the fact that she used to bake in the sun with olive oil like they all did as teenagers in the '60s. So, from a young age, I was encouraged to take care of my skin. As I got older, I tried to think of aging as a negative thing, like I'm staving off this tidal wave of doom! It's more about the self-care. I just think as you get older, you should intensify the self-care a bit. It's internal, like the amount of water you're drinking and how much sleep you're getting. And then, in terms of makeup, it's like, why not use things that are designed to help with those specific aging things that happen to everyone?"
Absolutely. So, what's your skin-care routine like right now?
"I'm pretty good about washing my face [and] moisturizing really well. I love Dr. Hauschka's Rose Day Cream. That's one of Gucci Westman's tricks — she slathers that stuff on like a mask, and it feels so good! It's even better if you keep it in the fridge and apply it when it's cold."
How are you feeling about exercise? Has your routine changed since you've become pregnant?
"I'm so into Pilates. Being pregnant, Pilates has been amazing. I think that something that is that focused on form, the time you spend and the work you do will be that much more effective. I still love SoulCycle because it's so fun and so communal. I used to take dance classes, so I like being a part of the pack. I don't whoop and holler or anything — a teacher the other day sprayed me in the face with his water bottle. I was like, "Uh-uh, we're not friends like that!"
