â€œIâ€™m more particular with my hair than my makeup on the red carpet,â€ Munn told us. â€œIâ€™d never want it to be overdone, Iâ€™d rather have my makeup stand out.â€
â€œI prefer cream blush over powder because it looks so much more natural,â€ Munn says. â€œStila is my go-to, and Revlon makes a new formula that I love.â€ The actress dabs the product directly on the apples of her cheeks and blends with her fingers. â€œIt doesnâ€™t sit on top of your pores like powder can,â€ she says. Try Stilaâ€™s Convertible Color ($25) and Revlonâ€™s Cream Blush ($15).
â€œMy favorite lip balm is Clarks Botanicalsâ€™ Ultra Rich Lip Tint ($19). The color is called Moore Nude,â€ Munn says. â€œIt has a slight shimmer, but it still looks like your real lips. I think itâ€™s named after Julianne Moore.â€
â€œThe red carpet is very intimidating,â€ Munn told us. â€œIâ€™m evolving every day and still learning what works on me, but when you get a good team [of artists] you can really lean on them.â€
When asked about her favorite mascara, Munn was quick to reply. â€œCoverGirlâ€™s LashBlast ($8) in the orange tube!â€ she says. â€œItâ€™s been my go-to for years.â€
Munn puts all her trust in her makeup artists for red carpet events, but how does she step it up for a night out? â€œI do my own false eyelashes,â€ she says. â€œI just get the individual Ardell ones from the drugstore and apply them directly to my outside lashes.â€Try Ardellâ€™s DuraLash Flair Individual Lash Set ($6).
â€œI switch around my hair products a lot, but the one thing that I always do is a cold rinse to seal my hair after I wash it,â€ Munn says. â€œIt makes your hair super shiny. I even do it on my skin after I wash my face; it closes your pores.â€
The one product Munn canâ€™t leave home without may surprise you: Diorâ€™s Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil ($29) in Universal Brown. â€œEyebrows are the most important thing in my routine,â€ she says. â€œThis one has a comb, a brow styler on one end, and itâ€™s the perfect brown.â€
â€œYou canâ€™t go back a day!â€ This mantra means Munn has become an expert on face wipes. â€œProactivâ€™s are a little soapy and remove everything when I donâ€™t feel like washing my face.â€Try the Proactiv Makeup Cleansing Wipes ($40)
â€œIâ€™d like my skin to look a little shiny and dewy,â€ Munn says. On her days off she applies Lâ€™Oreal Parisâ€™ Magic Lumi Concealer ($13) anywhere she needs coverage, then dabs RMS Beauty â€œUnâ€ Cover-Up ($36) over it for added brightness. â€œI layer them so it reflects even more light.â€
Munn keeps the luminosity going by skipping powder. â€œMy makeup artists have taught me not to apply powder to my skin,â€ Munn says. â€œPlus I donâ€™t like anything that covers my freckles. â€œ
â€œMy go-to is a red lip right now,â€ Munn told us. â€œIâ€™d much rather wear a bright lip and a nude eye than a smoky eye.â€ Her favorite color? Nars Satin Lip Pencil ($27) in Majella.
Munn calls Kerry Washington, Lupita Nyongâ€™o, and Michelle Williams her modern beauty icons, but Sophia Loren took the lead after she met the actress recently. â€œI was backstage at the Costume Guild Awards and I saw who I thought was Sophia Loren,â€ she says. â€œI was like, â€˜no way, that canâ€™t be her,â€™ but it was. A lot of Hollywood is smoke and mirrors, but not with her, she looks so good. The texture of her skin was unbelievable!â€Loren is 79 years old.
â€œI gravitate towards nude hues on my nails, but I just got this metallic gold manicure for a photo shoot with this Chanel polish that I really like,â€ Munn says. â€œItâ€™s a fun way to do a more interesting basic. I need to track down the shade.â€
Munn also swears by Proactiv+ Eye Brightening Serum ($46). â€œItâ€™s the one thing I have to have when I travel,â€ she told us. â€œI put it on at night and wake up looking refreshed. You can use it during the day as well because it reflects light.â€
