Jessica Alba: Concealer is my friend!

Jessica Alba has a "pretty thorough" skincare routine.

The 34-year-old always looks flawless on the red carpet, while her off-duty look is the envy of women everywhere. While she has a natural, California girl look about her, Jessica insists she never goes completely au naturale with her make-up.

"Never! I grew up with a mother who put her face on before she took me to school every morning, so it's just not how I roll," she confessed to British InStyle. "I always need to wear concealer and lip balm, at the very least. I always keep an eyelash curler and Korres' Zea Mays Blush in my handbag."

Jessica juggles her acting career with running her eco-friendly consumer goods business, The Honest Company, and her parenting duties to her two daughters. Being so busy, it means the amount of time she has to dedicate to her make-up varies vastly.

"My make-up look depends on how much time I have to get ready," she said. "Sometimes I'll wear Ilia's red lipstick, sometimes I prefer a cat eye, and other times I'll go for an all-out glam smoky eye."

Wearing so many cosmetics means that Jessica has to have a good skincare regime in place to make sure she avoids breakouts or skin irritations.

"I have a pretty thorough routine - I wash my face, gently exfoliate then cleanse again, every night," she added. "To moisturise, I use a face oil, an eye cream and a face cream. During the day, I apply a sunscreen over the top because it's so important to protect your skin. You've only got one face, you should take care of it."
