When Amanda Seyfried agreed to be in our holiday makeup portfolio, we thought we knew what to expect: a pretty, pixie-esque blonde with bright blue eyes and an enviable complexion — perfect model material (and part of the reason Clé de Peau signed her as front woman for the brand). But we also got a funny, irreverent, and humble 26-year-old who bakes a mean chocolate cookie (she brought a bag to the set for the crew) and knows how to work a red lipstick and leather number.
