Rooney Mara is not afraid to experiment with different beauty looks: after all,
she did undergo a dramatic makeover for her part in ‘The Girl with the Dragon
Tattoo’ which involved cutting her hair short and getting multiple piercings.
Known for her flawless complexion and love of dark lipstick, Rooney has shared
some of her simple but effective tips for gorgeous glowing skin and her very
quick, natural makeup secrets.
1. She Sticks to Trusted Brands
skin is sensitive so she sticks to products she knows work well already:
"I don’t use a lot of products because my skin is so sensitive, though I
always wear sunscreen, usually Chanel and Dermalogica. I try to eat healthfully
and hardly ever drink alcohol. When you eat the right things, you don’t need
that many products."
2. Her Quick Makeup Routine
She has a
simple one-minute makeup routine: "Tinted moisturizer, concealer if I need
it, and some powder—probably Laura Mercier or Chanel. I use a Nars blush stick
on my lips, too."
3. She Adds Loose Powder Over Sunscreen
a Laura Mercier loose setting powder after she applies sun-screen to take away
the shine: "This is great at taking down the shine after you apply
sun-screen. It adds a bit of matte—and never seems too powdery."
4. She Loves Multi-Use Products
products such as 'Nars the Multiple' as it’s several products rolled into one:
"I'm embarrassed to say, one of my favorite shades is Orgasm. I toss one
of these sticks in my bag and rub it on whenever I need a hit of color."
5. She Always Wears Sun Protection
biggest beauty secret is to always wear sunscreen: "This is going to sound
so simple, but sunscreen! I always wear sunscreen. I also find that what you
eat is the best beauty secret; it sort of starts from the inside out."
