Because we’re accustomed to seeing celebrities in all their glitz-and-glam glory on the red carpet and big screens, it’s always comforting to hear that walking around with pounds of makeup and hairspray on isn’t their favorite pastime.

“When it comes to a beauty routine, I want to spend less than five minutes in front of the mirror,” she says, explaining that, as a fan of making getting ready as easily as possible, her skin care routine has consisted of three products for years: Clé de Peau Beauté Gentle Cleansing Foam ($65), La Mer La Crème ($170) at night and an emulsion with SPF during the day. “My hair routine is even simpler and faster. Usually, I pull it back off my face and shampoo it once a week. That keeps it healthy, and I don’t use any styling products except for dry shampoo.” LULU ORGANICS Hair Powder in Lavender + Clary Sage ($30) is her go-to, a natural option she buys on Amazon.

The less-is-more approach carries over to her makeup routine, too. “I recently had my eyelashes dyed so I don’t have to put on mascara every day,” she says. As for blemishes or any redness in her complexion, a full-face of foundation is out of the question for this big-screen star. “Foundation seems like a lot of work, so I just use a concealer stick for red spots here or there.”
