There is so much to love about Amanda Seyfried. This Oscar-nominated actress has been acting from a young age of 15, and whether she played the lovable Karen Smith in the cult-classic “Mean Girls” with her hilarious one-liners or Cosette in “Les Misérables” where she sang her heart out, we have to admit-she is good (via CBR). Besides being an outstanding actress, Seyfried is also a strong advocate for mental health because she struggles with anxiety and panic attacks herself and is vocal about the vital topic, per Insider. “Your body just goes into fight or flight. The endorphin rush and the dump that happens after the panic attack is so extraordinary,” she told the outlet, who revealed that living on a farm has done her good. Her openness about her mental health struggles makes her more relatable for many, and Seyfried is considered very “down-to-earth” who hasn’t let the world of glamour get to her head (via Glamour).
She is a natural beauty, and it is hard to deny it with her gorgeous green eyes and porcelain skin. Women’s Health shared how the “Dear John” actress prioritizes “the health of her skin” over wearing too much makeup. Of course, you see her all glammed-up on the red carpet, but other times, she prefers to be “makeup-free.” We can tell she takes care of her skin, so let’s find out some of her best beauty secrets.
Amanda Seyfried’s skincare routine is simple yet effective
Amanda Seyfried makes sure to take care of her skin by using minimal quality products that are clearly effective, and her perfect skin is proof of that. Seyfried is loyal to Lancôme’s Clarifique Dual Face Essence because she says using this exfoliating essence gives her glowy skin. She told Glamour, “I love the smell, the texture, and the way it feels on my skin.” According to Lancôme, it has glycolic acid and beech bud extract to exfoliate and hydrate for more radiant-looking skin.
It is hard to imagine a true Hollywood star without Botox or fillers, but she is different. Like the rest of us, she struggles with fine lines but chooses a less invasive approach to treat her “wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet” with Toute Nuit Wrinkle Patch, per Allure. She shared, ‘It’s just surgical tape in the shape of a triangle to keep [the wrinkle] relaxed.” No needles for Miss Seyfried yet. One of the smartest ways to keep aging at bay and maintain beautiful skin is by applying sunscreen. She prioritizes sun protection, and we can tell. In the interview with New Beauty, she shared that her go-to sunscreen is Babo Botanicals zinc oxide, which she also uses on her daughter.
Amanda Seyfried is a fan of minimal makeup
Amanda Seyfried is a minimalist regarding makeup, which you might have noticed if you follow her on Instagram. She told New Beauty, “The bare-faced look is pure laziness,” and doesn’t wear foundation when she is going out but focuses on her other features. As the ambassador for Lancôme, she does love their Lancôme Hypnôse mascara. This blonde-haired beauty also has blonde eyebrows and turns to Clé De Peau Beauté’s Eyebrow And Eyeliner Compact to darken her brows (via Vogue). Plus, this compact also doubles as an eyeliner.
Though she is never overly done up on her off-days, her eyebrows are always on point.
In an interview with Yahoo Beauty, the “Chloe” actress admitted her love for red lipstick, and her favorite is Clé de Peau Beauté Extra Rich Lipstick in 311, which is a bright red color, and she admitted to having seven of those. Unfortunately, that lipstick is not available anymore, but in her new role as Elizabeth Holmes in Hulu’s “The Dropout,” she wears Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink Liquid Lipstick in the shades French Touch and French Bisou, which you can still get your hands on. This fresh-faced beauty likes to keep her makeup to a bare minimum with defined brows and bold lips and always looks gorgeous.
