Rooney Mara’s 7 Beauty Must-Haves

rooney-mara-cover-shoot-4

 

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!

Get The Look: Blake Lively’s Perfect Red Lips

 

I absolutely adored this dress and retro look on Blake Lively at her Savages premiere. Instyle Magazine has tracked down the exact colors to get this perfect retro red. Now I just need the dress, hair and body!

 

Found It! Blake Lively’s Sexy Red Lipstick

Nothing ties a retro look together like a true red lipstick and a flick of liquid liner. Case in point: Blake Lively’s Old Hollywood-inspired getup. “Blake wanted a classic matte red lip,” said her makeup artist Elaine Offers. “We went with the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in Dragon Girl and Red Square.” These jumbo lip crayons take the guesswork out of choosing a matching liner, and the velvety formula keeps your pucker from feeling parched. Added bonus: We love how Red Square, an orange-based scarlet, adds a touch of warmth to the blue-based Dragon Girl.

Pick up both shades for $24 each over at narscosmetics.com.
