Morena Baccarin: 'Tinted moisturiser and mascara and I’m done!'

Morena Baccarin prefers a more low key look rather than heavy make-up.

Actress Morena Baccarin only puts on make-up when she has to.

The 36-year-old star has been kept busy in recent years thanks to her roles in Homeland, Gotham and upcoming movie Deadpool.

She is currently expecting her second child – her first with boyfriend and Gotham co-star Benjamin McKenzie – and says that when it comes to her off days, she prefers to keep her look very low key.

“I don't use tons of lotions and potions and I only put on make-up when I have to,” she told Britain’s Marie Claire magazine. “I like Epicuren cleansing wash to clean my face and Valmont moisturiser. In my day-to-day life, I usually just throw on a tinted moisturiser and some mascara and I'm done.”

Morena regularly wows on the red carpet thanks to the stylish ensembles she wears for her frequent A-list appearances. Simple, elegant styles are Morena’s favourites, as she prefers a less fussy approach to fashion.

“I like contemporary designers who do the classics with a bit of a twist,” she continued. “Stella McCartney and Alexander Wang are two of my favourites and I'm also really into Paul Carroll. Opening Ceremony in New York is great because you can find good designers but also some labels that you've never heard of.”

Pre-pregnancy, Morena was the proud owner of a lithe, toned figure which she is sure to regain after welcoming her baby into the world. And she knows exactly how to best show off a slim line physique.

“No one makes better bikinis than the Brazilians,” she said: “I find that the cut is more flattering and the same goes for the underwear. Osklen has stores in the States now and it's great for bathing suits and beautiful dresses - they have a very specific Brazilian, beachy vibe.”
