MODERN Family’s Sofía Vergara is as gorgeous as she is hilarious. Although she admits to owning ‘a million products’, the star knows what works for her, sticks to it and keeps it close at hand in her handbag. Think that you can’t afford to look as gorgeous as the a-lister? Think again! A surprising mix of budget-friendly and splurge-level finds comprise Sofía’s beauty bag arsenal.
Not So Nude
‘I don’t love nude lipstick – I look better with colour.’ She keeps different shades with her and applies according to what event she’s going to. ‘I like red to make a splash!’
The Matte Lipstick: R149.95, 3INA
Cleanse And Refresh
SHE stresses the importance of skincare. ‘No look is complete without perfect skin.’ After all, make-up is only as good as the skin underneath.
Advantage Hydrating Creamy Cleanser: R79.95, African Extracts Rooibos
Know Your Hues
‘I’VE worn the same shades my whole life, because I know what looks good on me. I used to do more black eyeliner, but now that I’m older I wear browns, because black can be harsh much.’
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar: R700, By Too Faced, Eye See Hue
SHE doesn’t have time for manicures. ‘I don’t have the patience for someone to give me one. So I’ll paint my nails in the car on the way to the Golden Globes or to the airport.’
Nail Lacquer In Tenderoni: R379, By Smith And Cult, Quintessentially Yours
Ace Of Base
‘I mix foundation with moisturiser so it becomes lighter on my skin for the daytime.’ Just remember to throw a SPF in there too, Sofía!
