ABC's fairy-tales-with-a-girl-power-twist drama Once Upon a Time has its season premiere this Sunday — just in time for our envy of Jennifer Morrison's hair to reemerge. Not to minimize her acting chops, but every time those epic locks appear onscreen, we find ourselves wondering: What are we doing wrong that we don't have hair like that?
So, when makeup artist Tina Turnbow offered to interview Morrison for us (while doing her makeup), we jumped at the chance to get the inside scoop on how girlfriend always looks so good. Ahead, Turnbow's chat with the actress — including the products she can't live without and why yoga is her go-to.
What are some of your skin-care must-haves?
"I keep it simple: I use Koh Gen Do face wash and Fenix moisturizer."
What's your favorite makeup product, and what's your least favorite?
"I don't go anywhere without mascara. That is my one go-to. I have a hard time with gooey or sticky lipsticks. I end up making ridiculous faces; rubbing my lips together subconsciously when I'm irritated."
How do you maintain your gorgeous, golden locks?
"Riawna Capri at Nine Zero One Salon is in charge of my hair. Riawna or [her colleague] Tawni do my highlights, and they consistently give me cleansing masks to keep buildup off of my hair, so it stays bright and shiny."
What did you think of New York Fashion Week?
"I found it enlightening. I felt like I learned a lot. I enjoyed seeing how the different designers mixed colors and prints and textures. Seeing the shows really inspired me to see my own wardrobe differently."
I know you're really into yoga. What about it do you like?
"I think yoga keeps me alive. Not only is hot yoga the fastest way to sweat out toxins (and force myself to drink tons of water), but it also calms my mind and gives me a moment to be away from my hectic schedule."
What happens when you don't drink enough water? Does it show up on your skin?
"I know immediately when I have not had enough water. My skin feels dry almost instantly, my lips get chapped, and I feel like the pinkish glow in my cheeks goes away. I look a bit gray when I'm dehydrated."
What else do you do to keep your complexion healthy and clear?
"I take a daily vitamin made by Univera, but besides that, I find that I'm getting most everything I need from a balanced diet and lots of greens."
