Ellen Pompeo’s man knows how to make her feel like a million bucks.

“He tells me constantly how I have the body of a 20-year-old. He is the best,” gushes the Grey’s Anatomy star of her husband of eight years, Chris Ivery.

And when it comes to Pompeo’s makeup, the music producer prefers a less is more vibe, which suits the 46-year-old actress just fine.

“I don’t really like a lot of makeup, and my husband doesn’t really like a lot of makeup,” she says, adding that her beau “is so supportive. He is amazing.”

Pompeo may not favor a made up look, but she loves for her skin to glow, and rounds out her simple beauty routine with Philosophy Uplifting Miracle Worker moisturizer and organic coconut oil “as an all over body moisturizer,” plus facials and peels “to keep the dead skin off your face and make you look fresh.”

She also keeps her time in the makeup chair to a minimum.

“My glam time is almost like a party. You get to hang out with super fun and creative people while listening to music,” she reveals, adding, “But under an hour is always the goal!”

Pompeo, who wed Ivery, 48, in an intimate city hall ceremony (then New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was the couple’s sole witness) in November 2007, says the duo still enjoys an occasional date night — even if it happens in the privacy of their own home.

“We go out to dinner sometimes, but date nights really kind of happen inside at home. And actually, we both go to bed pretty early, so we do a lot of lunch dates, too.”
