GET MORE STAR BEAUTY EVERY DAY!
Q&A WITH … CLAIRE DANES
The Temple Grandin actress, 31, talks about putting her best face forward, with and without makeup
DO YOU WEAR MAKEUP WHEN YOU’RE NOT ON-SET?
If I need a boost, I’ll put a little extra makeup on. My husband, Hugh, always prefers when I don’t wear makeup. Actually I think he prefers when I apply my makeup well. I find that’s true of most men.
HAVE YOU BECOME MORE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE?
Yes. I have a much better understanding of who I am. I feel much safer, and that’s just to do with time and experience. I don’t have to be a teenager anymore.
YOU’RE THE NEW SPOKESWOMAN FOR THE PRESCRIPTION LASH LENGTHENER LATISSE. HOW’S THAT GOING?
I used to use false eyelashes for events, and now I’d look ridiculous. I wake up and look like I have makeup on!
WHAT IS YOUR BEAUTY PHILOSOPHY?
As long as you exercise, eat in a balanced way and get sleep, you’ll look great.
When it’s time to get up and go, Danes stands by her “pared down” regimen: foundation, lip balm and a little shimmer.

Perry’s stylist Danilo suggests treating wet hair with a leave-in conditioner, which will help “moisturize and de-frizz” locks before any kind of heat styling.

FRIEDA GIVES BACK
Style guru John Frieda has launched the HAIRraising foundation in the U.S. to benefit Children’s Hospital Boston. “It’s a wonderful thing,” says Frieda. Not only has he enlisted almost 250 salons across the country, including some of the top names in the industry, to contribute, but a $2 donation will also be made on behalf of every visitor to the mobile John Frieda Style On Site Salon, which is currently touring the country.
