Rooney Mara’s 7 Beauty Must-Haves

InStyle magazine chatted with Rooney Mara to find out the secret to her gorgeous skin and  get the scoop on her favorite products. To read more check out the current issue of InStyle magazine on newsstands now.

Your complexion is the envy of every beauty editor I know. Please don’t tell us it’s just good genes.
People are going to hate me for saying this, but I really don’t have a regimen. I don’t use a lot of products because my skin is so sensitive, though I always wear sunscreen, usually Chanel and Dermalogica. I try to eat healthfully and hardly ever drink alcohol. When you eat the right things, you don’t need that many products.

And the Rooney Mara don’t-hate-me-because-my-skin-looks-airbrushed diet consists of …
Well, I’m gluten-free. A bunch of people in my family have celiac disease, so I stopped eating wheat about a year ago, and right away I noticed a difference. I’m also vegan; I basically eat only fruits and vegetables. I’ve never felt better than I do now.

Let’s talk hair. Your jet-black strands and blunt baby bangs may well be in the Pinterest hall of fame for “aspirational cut.”
We did short bangs for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but it was when they grew out that people really started to like them. As for color, I’ve been lighter, but I prefer being brunette. I find that people with dark hair don’t need to wear as much makeup.

Professional pluckers tell me they get dozens of requests for “Rooney Mara brows.” Are they high-maintenance?
They’re actually no-maintenance—that’s why they’re so prominent!

100913-Laura-Mercier-400
LAURA MERCIER LOOSE SETTING POWDER

“Even though this tinted moisturizer is light, it does a terrific job of evening out my complexion without ever getting cakey.”

New Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

What do you think of the new bottom lash mascara? I am not against it in theory but I don’t know that it would be worth using two mascaras everyday.

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

What it is:
A mascara with a brush specifically designed for coating the bottom lashes.

What it does:
This mascara’s brush was engineered to grasp even the tiniest of bottom lashes; its expert formula resists pesky smears.

What else you need to know:
Bottom Lash Mascara is formulated to be removed with warm water. Simply splash warm water (bath temperature is ideal) onto lashes, press gently, and mascara comes off with ease.

New Products!

Dior has released a Limited Edition of their hugely popular (and a personal favorite) Diorshow Mascara. Introducing Diorshow 360! This professional mascara mimics a makeup artist’s application technique for a perfect 360-degree lash-styling effect. Featuring a patented double-helix brush with extra-smooth fibers and a sculptable wax formula, this mascara features a spinning brush that rotates in both directions to adapt to every need, whether you’re left- or right-handed or you want to pump up upper or lower lashes. I think that brush looks awesome! Even though I’ve switched to CoverGirl Lash Blast, I may be swayed to try this! ($36)

Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm from Clinique! This gorgeous lip color treats lips to mouthwatering moisture and a hint of soft shine. It never needs sharpening—simply swivel up to reveal more of the balm. I’m in love with lipstick balms lately…it’s a lipgloss and lipstick in one! I can’t wait to try this! ($15)
