Glamour (South Africa) - - Beauty Flash A-list Secrets -

What does beauty mean to you? It’s about your spirit. Be happy and live the life you want to live. That’s what we try to con­vey in the Lancôme La Vie Est Belle cam­paigns, and that’s the key to look­ing your best.

Who taught you the most about beauty? My hus­band, Daniel Moder. I don’t know if you can put it into words, but that’s what your per­son does for you, in ways both clear and un­clear.

Grow­ing up, who did you con­sider to be beau­ti­ful? I thought my mother was very glam­orous, with her frosted lip­stick and eye­liner. But El­iz­a­beth Tay­lor was prob­a­bly the per­son in the spot­light I ad­mired most. Her el­e­gance and grace made her iconic. I mean, she’s spec­tac­u­lar; even through the kaf­tan years she was chic and decked out in jewels. She seemed to have it go­ing on 24/7.

Is your beauty rou­tine high- or low-main­te­nance? Low. I could def­i­nitely go a lit­tle higher. What prod­uct can’t you live with­out? [1] Lancôme Bi-facil Eye Makeup Re­mover (R380) is un­beat­able. A lot of times you take off your eye makeup at night, and the next morn­ing you wake up and look like you al­ready put makeup on! But this for­mula gets rid of ev­ery stitch of makeup. For more than six years, it’s the one prod­uct I’ve used ev­ery day.

What’s been the best trick you’ve picked up over the years? Dis­cov­er­ing the eye­lash curler was a game changer. And learn­ing how to do my hair, which just came from years of watch­ing a mas­ter [ hair­styl­ist Serge Nor­mant]. I can’t do it as well as he does it, but I can still try.

Do you have a funny beauty mo­ment? Try­ing to make peace with the age­ing process. Re­al­is­ing that it’s go­ing to hap­pen whether I like it or not.

What was your worst makeup dis­as­ter ever? Noth­ing was worse than any­one who wore makeup in the ’80s! I did white con­cealer. Who does that? Tell us about your guilty plea­sure I love to watch The Fixer. You know it’s a guilty plea­sure when you’re watch­ing your TV show and you hear some­one come in so you turn it off and throw your re­mote across the room.

Is there one cur­rent beauty trend you’ve con­sid­ered try­ing? The bob. I’ve al­ways wanted su­per-short hair so I could have it pop and be cool, but Serge [Nor­mant] is like, “I’m not do­ing this.” He won’t do the bob or any­thing. What hair and makeup look do you feel the most con­fi­dent in? My sig­na­ture loose waves and nat­u­ral makeup. And a gnarly eye­liner. TRY [2] Lan­come Liner Plume in Noir (R370).

What’s the one look you won’t try? Asym­met­ri­cal hair.

Do you find cer­tain foods help you glow? I try to be con­scious and eat or­ganic foods and avoid gluten. It’s a bum­mer that eat­ing healthily is a lux­ury.
