Screen siren Charlize Theron shares her beauty secrets.
What’s your best beauty tip?
“My makeup artist, Shane Paish, is a genius. There isn’t a day that goes by when he doesn’t surprise me. One of the things he taught me is to use nude pencil eyeliner to outline the inside of my eyes for a brighter look when I’m feeling tired.”
What’s your morning beauty routine?
“I just rinse my face with cold water — I don’t believe in overzealous cleansing — and then I apply La Roche-Posay 50 sunblock, a bit of foundation and mascara and I’m out the door.”
And in the evenings?
“I don’t use make-up remover — I simply wash my face with DiorSnow foaming cleanser and it removes absolutely everything. I’ve become extremely picky about the quality and efficiency of the cosmetics I use. I apply Dior Capture eye cream with a cotton swab and night cream. I like to change my cosmetics regularly so that my skin won’t become immune to the effects of the products. I’m getting over a Crème de la Mer phase.”
What’s your fave beauty product?
“I am completely addicted to Dior L’Or de Vie, an elixir that gives your skin an instant natural glow.”
What are your hair secrets?
“I try to avoid using a blow-dryer too much, but it’s difficult when I’m running from one appearance to another and my hair is being styled several times a day. Every now and then, I give my hair a week’s vacation. My real hair secret is my in- credible team. My hairdresser, Enzo Angileri, is extremely creative and al- ways looking for new trends.”
What’s your favourite hairstyle?
“High-volume hair lifted from the roots, Catherine Deneuve-style — I really love this! Generally, I take my inspiration from others.”
