Amy Adams is not only a talented actress, she’s also just plain beautiful!
And as the face of Lacoste's Eau de Lacoste, she’s been more involved in the beauty and fragrance realm than ever.
So after the hecticness of the Oscars, the ravishing redhead opened up to Vogue about her long and complicated relationship with scent. She also delved into the cosmetic products she uses regularly!
Get the inside scoop on what Amy had to say…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
On if she ever tried on her mom’s fragrance as a kid:
“I definitely tried to get into my mom’s beauty products. I was one of seven children, so she had to guard anything that was hers! She used Maxim’s, I remember that; she still has it.”
On if she changes her fragrance depending on her mood:
“Sometimes. I do like to put on more of a warm fragrance for special occasions or for nighttime. I started working a couple of years ago with Eau de Lacoste, and I just love the flexibility of it, that it feels clean. It doesn’t have the presumption that it’s going to leave a trail, which is always important to me—to be subtle.”
On if a scent needs to match the wearer’s personality:
“For me, it has to sort of coordinate. There are fragrances that I love that I can never identify with. I’ve definitely made that mistake and then have been like, Who am I trying to be? [A perfume] can definitely alter your personality. I know when I’m working on a role sometimes I’ll associate a fragrance with a character.”
On her beauty essentials:
“I’ve become quite a La Mer devotee. I’ve tried other things, and I just keep coming back to it because it seems to repair the dryness in my skin. I really love a tinted moisturizer. I’ve used a couple different [ones]—Jouer and Laura Mercier and Kiehl’s. I like to play with makeup. I feel like after I use it for a while, I want to try something new. Except you go back to your classics, like BADgal lash mascara by Benefit. It just works on me.”
On her favorite lip product:
“I like the [Smith's] rosebud balm, in a tin. I’ve got my daughter hooked on it now.”
Beauty tips passed from mother to daughter?? AH-mazing!!
And now she's passing them to fans as well!
Truly a gift!!
