Jennifer Garner lands the September cover of Allure Magazine, talks Ben & Botox!

Jennifer Garner may be married to one of Hollywood’s biggest actors, but she wants you to know she’s still her own unique person. In the September issue of Allure Magazine, the 42-year-old actress reveals that she sometimes attends events without husband Ben Affleck in a bid to keep her individuality.

“It’s a very conscious decision,” she admitted. “It can be too much, I think, especially for women. They can really lose their identity and just become ‘wife of. Sometimes it’s a pain because my heels are so high and it would be nice to have his arm. And he’s such a great date!”

Jennifer and Ben, who have three children together,  met on the set of 2003′s “Daredevil.” Even though they starred together onscreen once, Jennifer says she never wants to do it again. “Really, you don’t want to see a couple onscreen,” she said. “People see paparazzi shots of us together all the time. There’s no mystery. … People are sick of us.”

She also confessed that she’s not interested in taking roles that requires her to make dramatic changes to her body. “There were times I had to watch every calorie that went into my body. Doing something like that again…it’s not exactly on the top of my list.”

She’s also not interested in Botox. “I have a big forehead, and I don’t want it to be like this slab, a big glacier.”

I love her. I always have…. started with ‘Alias’ and has continued since then. Sunday night I made my 11-year-old son watch ’13 Going on 30′ with me – and I realize how unbelievably gorgeous she is. She’s just so cute, and so beautiful, and seems SO down to earth. Having three kids in Hollywood – you still never see her with a nanny (which I really appreciate). She’s just do darn cute!

PS: My son LOVED the movie. :)

The flawless Jennifer Garner talks her beauty routine, which rarely consists of makeup.

Jennifer Garner is featured in the new issue of Redbook Magazine, and Rebecca Romijn took the cover. It seems weird that Rebecca got the cover over Jennifer, but oh well. In the interview, Jennifer opens up about her beauty secrets, which surprisingly are very simple. Maybe not surprising considering her natural beauty. I love Jennifer – more so than most all other celebrities. It’s her down-to-earth style that makes her seem just like any of us. She dresses like we do, she doesn’t take a nanny with her every where she goes. She just seems like really good people. Doesn’t she?

Here’s more from the interview…

On the makeup that she wears everyday:
“Most days I don’t get around to makeup. If I do, it’s pretty simple: concealer, blush, mascara and some lipcolor. If I’m really going for it, I might fill in my brows. Generally speaking, brows are underserved.”

On what the transition feels like from her every day, relaxed style to red carpet glamness:
“The red carpet feels like a whole other side of me. What I wear during the day reflects utility. The red carpet is really fun. It’s show business, and we’re putting on a show. A lot of people are involved in the styling and my voice is one of the smaller ones in the mix. You should hear the conversations {in a dramatic voice] “I think it’s a smoky eye and a simple lip…” I make fun of everyone for being so invested.

A lesson learned from her hairstylists:
“They taught me that letting my hair dry naturally – which is what I do every single day – is good for it…but it’s not always going to look good. Pulling out the blow-dryer and the curling iron really does make a difference. But to be perfectly honest, I don’t know even know where the hair dryer is in my house.”

Her favorite beauty tip:
“Putting on SPF should be like brushing your teeth.”

Get The Look: Jennifer Garner’s Silver Smoked Eyes

I just love Jennifer Garner, she looks absolutely amazing!

If you’re looking for a way to refresh your go-to smoky eye, try swapping out the usual grays and sables in favor of a silver hue like the one Jennifer Garner wore to the premiere of The Odd Life of Timothy Green. To get Jennifer’s look start by rimming your upper and lower lash line with a metallic pencil. Once you’ve created a shimmery outline, top it off with a richer, more concentrated shade of silver. The metallic will work best with a simple swipe of black eyeliner and mascara. Don’t be afraid to let your color wing out – you can also dab the hue below your lower lash line for a sultry effect.
