Special Offer

"In my early 20s, I had a much rounder face — puppy fat. Now, in my 30s, it's more angular, and my makeup needs are different."

1.Lancôme Trésor Sheer EDT, $62.50

2. Avon Pro-To-Go Lipstick in Cherry Glisten, $9

3. Jillian Dempsey for Avon Eyeshadow Trio in Pebble Wash, $9:
"I leave all my red-carpet prep to [makeup artist] Jillian Dempsey."

4. Shu Uemura Blotting Papers, $12:
"At the Golden Globes, Jillian said, 'Stick these in your handbag!' They're great when you start to shine — in not a good way." (One reporter mistook them for her acceptance speeches.)

5. Tracie Martyn Amla Purifying Cleanser, $65:
"Mary-Louise Parker turned me on to Tracie's facials. During awards season, I see her every couple of weeks — otherwise, I just can't hold it together. This cleanser takes away redness and swelling from flying — or prosthetics. I went through several bottles on the set of The Reader."

6. Coca-Cola Classic:
"How do I treat myself occasionally? By drinking plenty of fat Coke. I rarely drink soda, but when I do, it's not diet, it's the real stuff."

7. Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, $19:
"This is my everyday essential."

8. Serge Lutens Lip Crayon in Nude, $55

9.Lancôme High Résolution Eye, $55:
"It helps reduce puffiness and dark circles. My mum loves it, too."

10.Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra, $40:
"This is light but provides coverage, and once it's on, it stays on. You have to have that working in films — and in real life."

11.The Body Shop Lip Butter, $8:
"I've grown up with this. I use it on my kids, too."
