Together with big sister Penélope, Mónica Cruz, 32, is enjoying her second year as clothing designer for Spain-based retail chain Mango. The Spanish actress also has three movies in the pipeline for 2009. So how does this jet-setting mogul stay so stunning? Good looks clearly run in the family, but so does good advice: “My mother’s a hairstylist, and she taught us to use olive oil to hydrate and add shine. I still do it.” Here are a few more clever tips.
“I have a lot of things in my makeup bag that I rarely use, but these brushes (Nars Eye Shader Brush and Eye Contour brush) are always there; I use them to apply my eye shadow.”
“I don’t like strong scents. I like this cologne because it’s fresh, clean and light.”
“Lancôme has really nice brown bronzers that match my skin tone. I like to use the powder all over my cheeks.”
“I like using dark black to line all around my eyes, and this pencil is creamier than other formulas.”
“My beauty secret is to take lots of vitamins every morning. I’ve been taking vitamins A, C, D, E and K for several years now. I feel great and it shows on my skin.”
“I live in Spain and my lips get really dry from flying constantly. I always carry this great lip balm with me and reapply all the time.”
