Jennifer Aniston’s Skincare Secrets

In the most recent issue of People Magazine, Jennifer Aniston is asked a question about her skincare routine. Here is her answer:

I wash my face every night and morning with the same thing I’ve used since high school – Neutrogena cleansing bar. The products I use are Dr. Hauschka moisturizer during the day and my eye cream is SK-II.

So there you have it! A drugstore cleanser for Ms. Aniston!!

Jennifer Aniston’s Makeup Secrets

Thanks to the Beauty Counter for the details on Jennifer Aniston’s all-natural, girl next door look!

Love her or hate her, you must admit there’s something compelling about Jennifer Aniston—no, we’re not talking about her personal life here (nor her GQ cover, for that matter). She’s pretty much got the rom-com thing nailed and has been enjoyable in other, less predictable on-screen formats as well (two words: Office Space). We attribute her success to her girl-next-door, all-American, plain-and-simple-but-still-sexy appeal. According to makeup artist Angela Levin, who readied Ms. Aniston for the Marley & Me premiere last night in L.A., the actress’ all-natural look is 100 percent intentional: “She just wants to look and feel great and happy.” Us too—she is so relatable! See below for Levin’s tips on how to put it all together:
The Face

To prep Aniston’s face, Levin used By Terry Lift and Stretch antioxidant serum around her eyes to smooth skin before applying just a touch of Lorac Natural Performance Foundation in NP6. To add a bit of sun-kissed contour, Levin used Rimmel’s Sun Shimmer in medium matte and brushed Bobbi Brown’s Bronzing Powder from Aniston’s temples along her cheekbones. For a rosy glow on the apples of Aniston’s cheeks, Levin mixed a Chanel Crème Lipstick in Coco Red with a hydrating lip treatment and a dab of Sephora Blush Me! in Rose Rebelle 1.
The Eyes

For some (very) understated drama, Levin blended Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Silvery toward the outer corners of Aniston’s eyes, using the same product in Slate on the lids. She topped this off with Nars Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Violetta on the center of the lids and under the lower lashes as a light smoky liner.
The Lips

With access to a whole host of professional and as-yet-unreleased goodies, Levin dipped into her arsenal and treated Aniston’s lips to Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2009 Glossimer in Mica.

Jennifer Aniston in GQ

Yes, she has great skin and I would love to know what products she uses to keep her complexion so FLAWLESS. But does she really have to show off so much of it?? Isn’t this a little bit too close to pornography? I feel badly even putting it on my blog…and I may just take it down because it’s making me BLUSH!

The Boston Herald has an article about Jennifer Aniston’s recent appearance in GQ. Here is the link to the full piece, but just to give you an idea of the reporters angle, here is a quote from the article.

What is it with this relentless notion that if a middle-aged celebrity can somehow defy gravity, it’s a crime not to prove it? Who said in order to be OK with yourself, you’ve got to pose with nothing but a spray tan?

You know what I’d like to see? Men acting this way when they’re dumped – like ex-Mr. Madonna Guy Ritchie on the cover of Vogue wearing nothing but a cone bra, complaining about how uncool A-Rod is.

The reporter also goes on to compare Aniston to Glen Close’s character in Fatal Attraction…yikes!

But seriously. I think Jennifer displayed her beauty in a much more glamorous way in Vogue. Can’t she stick with this look? I would think men would find this way sexier. What’s with all the nudity Jen? Here’s a side-by side comparison, guess which one is for GQ?
