Kirsten Dunst on Her Simple Beauty & Makeup Rules

Kirsten Dunst

Actress Kirsten Dunst has opened up on her beauty rules. She says she doesn’t like to use overly-fussy products with lots of ingredients. Instead, she normally shops at health-food stores and likes to pick up basic products. However, she does love facial creams:

“I love beauty products but I don’t use a lot of them because I know what I’m like. I have a thing for face products. I never use anything on my skin that has an ingredient I can’t pronounce. That’s a trick my facialist taught me. The other is to never wash my face in the morning. All of the skincare products I use are very cheap – I get them from the health-food stores.”

Opening up on the makeup she wears day-to-day, Kirsten says she prefers minimal makeup such as BB cream and mascara when she isn’t working. When she’s dressing up, she has a colour palette that she always uses that she thinks works great with her fair skin tone:

“I wear a BB cream and mascara every day. If I’m going to be fancy, I use a make-up palette made up of aubergine, black, brown and cream eyeshadows. The aubergine looks really pretty with my eyes. I’ll wear red lipstick sometimes because that’s always an easy go-to. Those are the only products I ever use because I’m not very good at doing my own make-up.”

Kirsten is just as relaxed when it comes to her hair, letting it air dry after washing:

“I don’t do much to my hair when I’m not working; I normally just wash it and let it air dry. I do get it coloured every two months. I’m naturally fair but I prefer being blonder, which is why I get highlights.”
