Skin Savior

“I used to cover myself with baby oil to the point where my skin was crackling off! I am a lot better now about staying out of the sun and I try to be disciplined; I always have a tube of sunscreen on me.”

Inside Out

“I try to drink tons of water, but I’m not that consistent with it. It’s kind of irritating because when I do, so much of my life is spent running to the restroom, but my skin looks so much better.”

In-Office Go-To

“I am a big fan of the Triad facial. It’s a little bit of microdermabrasion, followed by LED light therapy and a gentle peel. It’s noninvasive, but it really helps with restoring natural collagen and gives my skin radiance. It brings my skin back to life and lasts a good couple of weeks. It’s great before a red carpet or a photo shoot and there’s no downtime.”

Red-Carpet Reveal

“I do enjoy the red carpet for the reason that you get to express yourself and I love hair and makeup as a form of expression. But, ordinarily, I would never put on high heels unless I absolutely had to.”

Device Duo

“Liev and I aren’t fighting over the mirror, but we do both use the Clarisonic. I think it’s good to do a gentle exfoliation once a week.”

Zen Mode

“I am absolutely obsessed with baths. I take one every other night. I don’t know how
 people can do without a bath—I can’t even stand it when I’m in a hotel room without one! For me, that’s a deal-breaker.”

Wellness Fix

“I like to think of myself as a spa person, but I hardly ever go. I recently had a gift card to The Greenwich Hotel spa
 and it was the first time I’ve made a visit in a very long time. I love massage and smelling and choosing essential oils, and I go into a coma with a good foot rub!”

Product Picks

 “I have very sensitive skin, so I can’t really use products with perfume. I really like L’Oréal Paris’s RevitaLift Volume Filler Eye Treatment; it’s really spongy with a great texture.”

Makeup Trick

“I once had a makeup artist tell me to wear blush as high as possible, on my cheekbones. You almost want to apply it under your eyes. It’s a good trick; it really does make it look better, yet it looks natural.”

Workout Way

“My workout of choice is yoga with a little cardio, but as I get older, my back can’t handle the impact so I am toning it down. I actually used to be a bit of a fanatic, but I’m just not up for it now. I’m also not one of those people who can wake up at 4 a.m. to work out. But I do like to get in some yoga because it gives me that sense of calm. There’s a woman in New York named Taryn Toomey who has these great classes. It’s balance, yoga, cardio and music and it really speaks to your mind.”

Guilty Pleasures

“I try to eat healthy, but I can’t bear 100-percent discipline at all times. I am someone who allows myself some room to have fun and enjoy the pleasures of life. That means a piece of chocolate cake when I want it or chocolate mousse—I have a thing for chocolate. I also have a thing for salt. I could eat bags and bags of potato chips and popcorn.”

Diet Do

 “I say ‘everything in moderation,’ but I don’t really eat red meat. I eat fish and sometimes chicken, but I have never craved red meat. I tasted it when I was younger and I never liked it.”

Wrap Routine

“At the end of the day, after I’m shooting, I’m desperate to get out of my makeup. You are basically sitting there for hours in a ton of makeup and they keep adding to it and piling it on. I like to get a hot, hot, hot washcloth to take it off, then I use the Clarisonic to exfoliate and I apply a good moisturizer.”

Beauty Inspiration

“I find a lot of beauty inspiration in Australia, but for me, someone like Charlotte Rampling is inspiring. In my opinion, she is more beautiful than a supermodel.”
