Claire Danes Hair and Makeup


Yesterday, we spoke one-on-one with Claire Danes in her NYC hotel suite. The two-time Emmy nominee (she recently got a nod for her leading role in the HBO film Temple Grandin) was in town to promote prescription lash-amplifier Latisse. As the newest celebrity spokesmodel for the brand, Danes says her job is easy. “I love the product, which is helpful,” she laughs, perched amiably on a couch in an Alberta Ferretti shift. Keep reading for more of Danes’ must-haves (she actually let us dig through her personal makeup bag!) and beauty secrets.

How long have you been using Latisse?

I’ve been using it since the beginning of the year—it takes about 16 weeks for the full effect to occur but you gradually see a difference. I had to exercise patience, but it was a great little adventure. I use it at night after washing my face, one wand per lid. I apply it like eyeliner and just let it do its thing!

What other products are part of your bedtime routine?

My skin is a bit sensitive, so Cetaphil is my standby. I also use toner and a light layer of moisturizer—I use a lot of Kiehl’s and other natural brands.

Besides using Latisse, how else do you like to play up your eyes?

Metallic shadows like Laura Mercier’s Metallic Crème Eye Color in Gold are great. I also use a lash curler and Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lash-Extending Treatment Mascara. The big question is always eyes or lips? I tend to go with the eyes because I’ve got a lot more material to work with now—and it saves me from reapplying lipstick! I’m a pretty low-maintenance person and it’s too excessive to exaggerate both the eyes and lips
