Jordana Brewster was “really scared” to colour her hair, but is thrilled with the results.

Jordana Brewster’s Brazilian heritage influences her beauty choices.

The 36-year-old actress’ mother Maria Joao, a former swimsuit model, hails from Brazil, and Fast and Furious star Jordana looks to the South American country for inspiration when it comes to her appearance.

“My mom is Brazilian, so I would say that's had an influence on who I am, beauty-wise,” she told Into The Gloss. “I really like a full brow - I would say that’s a Brazilian influence.

“I also like being tan no matter what, even though the sun is really bad for you. I use a self-tanner called Chocolate Sun that’s organic and doesn’t leave you looking orange at all. It’s obviously a better option than a real tan.”

Her Brazilian beauty isn’t the only thing Maria passed down to Jordana. The former swimsuit model also shared her best product suggestions, with a drug store bargain buy at the very top of Jordana’s go-to skincare list.

“I defer to my mom on all things that involve skincare,” she said. “Like Pond’s Cold Cream - our family has been using that for so many years and that’s what I use to take my makeup off. I also like that it’s moisturising too because I don’t always have to use a cream after. Morning or night.”

As well as her flawless skin and effortless sense of style, Jordana is known for her glossy brunette mane. Maintaining such well conditioned tresses doesn’t come easily though, with the actress admitting she recently hit the dye bottle to give her locks some depth for her work in front of the camera.

“I was really scared to colour my hair but I did it recently and I'm really happy with it,” she smiled. “Especially with television, your hair colour needs some depth in tone.

“I love the Shu Uemura Moisture Velvet because it keeps my hair from looking dry or ashy.”
