On eating a Big Mac:
“The only thing around was McDonald”s. I think I ordered a Big Mac. Wow, my body did not react well to that! It was like putting gasoline in a purified system. I am always trying to eat organic and natural foods, so that just made my stomach turn and made me feel terrible. And I think what you put in your body, as well as stress, is reflected in the quality of your skin.”
On her daily routine:
“The skin care rule I stand by is simply cleanse, tone, and moisturize. I also try to exfoliate pretty regularly. Awhile back I was doing a movie in the summer heat. Long days with a face full of makeup made my skin react badly. My makeup artist on set did a great thing, she gave me a tube of Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Scrub to use every night. And I”ve been using it ever since.”
On dropping the expensive brands for more affordable:
“When I started making enough money to afford high-end, fancy skincare products with sexy bottles and impressive claims, I decided to give them a try. As a result my skin acted up and got irritated. I think sometimes women may be over-cleansing their skin. Some products and masks can be too aggressive and irritating for certain skin types. I believe the more simple, natural, and easy the skin care regime, the better off your skin will be.”
On things that help keep her skin looking perfect:
“I can never stress enough to my friends that they must do as I do … hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Drink lots of water, get enough sleep, exercise, and eat a clean healthy diet, whenever possible.”
On steps to create the stunning look like Jennifer”s:
“First step, I apply a small amount of Youngblood Primer. It”s helpful in making the makeup last all day or night. Also because when she is not working she is always getting photographed. After the primer I use a few dots of Youngblood foundation. I like how lightweight it is and it blends well, I can also build it up if needed. Lately to fill in and define her brows, we”ve been really into Sephoras eyebrow pencil. Jennifer has great lashes, the kind that when you put mascara on they really pop! My standby forever has been Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara we love it. I put on about three coats for strength and drama. I will curl her lashes first, using a heated lash curler to keep them lifted. For cheeks I prefer a cream blush. Chanel has a new cream blush formula which I like, also Ben Nye and Bobbi Brown have some nice ones. There are millions of formulas, textures and shades of bronzers we play with many. But for shading I go with a matte mauve-y/taupe-y tone, not too orange-y.”
