American beauty: Diane Kruger's beauty secrets

What’s your morning ritual?
My first move it is to make coffee—I can’t think of starting my day without a large cup of it!

What about your morning beauty regimen?
I always wash my face with Surgras soap. Then I’ll apply Kiehl’s Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion and follow up with Roséliane d' Uriage cream—it’s the only cream I can use on my sensitive skin.

...and for night?
I never go to bed without taking off my makeup. I use the Water Make-up Remover from Uriage, and then I follow with the same routine that I use in the morning.

How do you get ready for a night out?
I don’t like to wear too much makeup so I’ll often just do it myself. I learned all the tricks during my modeling years—like never use foundation all over, just use something to cover imperfections. I prefer to use cover sticks, like Secret Camouflage by Laura Mercier. I love red shades so I tend to go all out on lipsticks. I’m a huge fan of the smoky eye but I also like a fresh and natural look, so it just depends on my mood. It’s the transformation that interests me, and before going out I’ll ask myself “Which woman do I want to be tonight?”

Do you have any beauty secrets?

I have fair skin and blonde hair so I have to keep in mind that some looks can make me seem washed out. But I usually go all out on lashes and eyebrows.

What about hair care?
I have fine hair and I fight with it every day! Right now I’m using the Leonor Greyl Bath Vitalizing B. I always let it dry naturally.

Do you work out?

I pretty much did ballet for more that 11 years and nothing else. I actually just got back into it about two years ago. I train with my instructor three or four times a week. I also do ab workouts and weight training to help tone my glutes. I’ve been biking lately in Paris, especially since I sold my car. So that definitely helps!

What are some of your guiltiest indulgences?
I adore Thai massages from the Ban Sabaï spa in Paris. And I treat myself to manicures and pedicures whenever I can—I’m addicted to them.

What’s your biggest beauty regret?
When I was 14 years old, I got a perm… it was terrible.

What’s your diet like?
I visit the market every weekend in Paris—just like I did when I was in L.A.— for organic and local vegetables and chicken. But because I like to travel so much, it’s a challenge to eat healthy food all of the time.

Favourite perfume?
Burberry Brit. I’ve been wearing it for so long that I put it on without thinking and don’t even notice it anymore.

The best beauty advice you’ve ever received?
It came from my mom: Less is more. I’ve always preferred the natural look.
