Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil
Decker is never without lip balm, and she's not fussy about the brand. "Beauty doesn't have to be expensive," she says. "A lot of my favorite products are from the drugstore and are less than ten dollars." One to try: Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil, a 100-percent all-natural product that moisturizes and gives your lips a barely-there tint.
To open up her baby blue eyes and give her lashes a boost, Decker uses CoverGirl's LashBlast Waterproof Mascara. She also relies on her trusty eyelash curler. A quick curl can help bring out your eyes. The trick is to position the curler as close to your upper lashes as possible. Squeeze gently and hold for five seconds before releasing.
For a sun-kissed look with a touch of shimmer, Decker loves Dr. Hauschka Bronzing Fluid. "It's nice for adding color to your face — it works kind of like pantyhose to add a sheer layer of color wherever you need it," she says.
Living Proof No Frizz Hair Products
Decker keeps her blonde locks flyaway free with Living Proof's No Frizz hair products. She raves about the high-tech formulas that smooth frizz without weighing her hair down. The line's Straight Making System, available exclusively at Sephora, includes shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, and styling cream.
Gillette Venus Embrace Razor
When the temperature begins to drop, Decker says she's more prone to dry skin. "I make sure to always shower with lukewarm water instead of hot — hot water robs your skin of moisture!" she says.
And while it's tempting to shave less frequently in the winter, since your legs are covered up, Decker says it's important to stick with your routine. "Having smooth skin is always a must, regardless of the temperature," she says. For a close shave, her go-to razor is Gillette's Venus Embrace. "It leaves my skin really silky," she says.
As part of her skin-care routine, Decker opts for a gentle facial cleanser. "I use Cetaphil — it's my favorite face wash," she says. "At the end of the day, when I just want to hit the sheets but I know I have to wash my face, it's great because it's simple and it works to clean everything up."
In addition to using products she loves, Decker says maintaining healthy habits plays a big role in how she looks and feels.
BACK TO SLIDE
Brooklyn Decker may be an all-American beauty, but she can easily transform into a blonde bombshell (exhibit A: her steamy Sports Illustrated cover). Decker has tapped into both personas since she's taken on acting roles on TV shows like Chuck, Ugly Betty, and Royal Pains.
When she's not working, Decker, who's married to tennis pro Andy Roddick, likes to keep her makeup low-key. "Sometimes I'll add mascara and some lip balm, but other than that I like to let my skin breathe between photo shoots and filming," she says. "Once in a while, I'll put on a funky, colorful lipstick." Here's what this no-frills starlet considers her beauty essentials.
