Carrie Preston always looks fabulous on and off the red carpet. To sheknows.com she revealed her beauty secrets.
SheKnows: What are the five beauty items you can’t live without?
Preston: Dermalogica Ultra Calming Facial Cleanser, LaLicious Sugar Kiss Body Butter, Paula’s Choice Tinted Moisturizer, L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Mascara and Benefit Georgia Peach Blush.
SheKnows: What’s your skin secret? How do you keep your skin so clear and refreshed?
Preston: I use a lot of fragrance-free cleansing and moisturizing products, such as the ones made by Dermalogica. I drink plenty of water to keep the skin hydrated and always do a thorough cleansing of the face both morning and evening. Plus, I stay out of the sun!
SheKnows: How would you describe your personal style?
Preston: My style is urban-eclectic-funky-sexy-chic.
Sheknows: What can we find you in when you’re not on the red carpet or filming?
Preston: Shirt patterned dresses or skinny pants, boots, clingy tops and chiseled jackets.
SheKnows: Who is your all-time favorite designer?
Preston: Mako Takada, who has designed four gowns for me to wear to the Emmys.
SheKnows: How does your character Arlene’s style differ from your style?
Preston: In every way possible! She sports a sexy silhouette, but her clothing choices are much tackier than I think (I hope) mine are.
SheKnows: What can we expect from Arlene in the next season of True Blood?
Preston: We haven’t seen the last of Patrick, the mysterious figure from Terry’s past.
SheKnows: What’s next for you?
Preston: That’s What She Said, the feature film I produced and directed, staring Anne Heche. It had its world premiere at Sundance in January and will be released in theatres this fall, so I’m making all preparations for that. I’m also looking forward to filming more episodes of The Good Wife and Person of Interest.
