Aubrey Plaza on Her Favourite Eye Makeup & Skincare Secrets


Aubrey Plaza has detailed her nightly skincare routine, explaining her simple secrets for clean skin. The comedian comments that she uses a cleansing water to remove her make-up which leaves her skin feeling fresh and removes everything:

“At night, I have to wash my face – I have to! If I don’t take my make-up off, I’ll break out like crazy. One thing that I’m always in search of is the best make-up remover. I think the best one is the Cleansing Spa Water by Koh Gen Do. That one gets everything off.”

She explains that she won’t leave the house without mascara and she loves a special high volume product that makes her lashes stand out. She thinks different mascara products all make her eyes look so different so she chooses carefully:

“I feel naked without it when I leave the house. Trish McEvoy is my favorite right now – High Volume Mascara, Jet Black – I like this one and I don’t know why. Mascaras are so mysterious to me. I feel like they all work in different ways and then once you find one that you like you can’t live without it, but that one’s my jam right now.”

The actress adds that she loves eye make-up and believes she can carry off bold dark eyeshadows even under her eyes. She loves experimenting with smoky eye shadows:

“My face can handle a lot of make-up, which is what people have told me over the years. I think it means that when some people get their eye make-up done their eyes kind of disappear and their face feels heavy, but for me, I can just keep putting make-up on and it looks better rather than worse. So, I can handle serious eye make-up. I experiment with that on my own and I have fun. Only in the past year or two have I tried to put an eye shadow under my eyes, or something soft and smoky.”
