Sarah Jessica Parker sometimes wants to tell her daughters their headbands are awful, but she never does.

Sarah Jessica Parker wears her signature smoky eye look even when she’s “wiping rear ends”.

The mother-of-three, who has son James, 13, and twin girls Marion and Tabitha, seven with husband Matthew Broderick, is known for her flawless beauty look and bold fashion choices.

While she gets her make-up done professionally on set, Sarah has mastered the perfect smoky eye away from work. She’s such a fan of the sultry look she even wears it while completing mundane errands.

“It’s all I can do!” she giggled to vogue.co.uk of the look. “I wear Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Jungle. I wear it almost every single day of my life, even if I’m only doing dishes and wiping rear ends. And I don’t care if it’s there for days – it’s doesn’t move so when I wash my face at night, or if I wash my face in the shower and it doesn’t come off, I do not care.”

The look is so effective that Sarah admits she doesn’t even bother with mascara half the time. However she’s is partial to lip balm, but rather than opt for an expensive product, Sarah wears whatever balm she’s got free in a gift bag.

Her two daughters may be too young to know the style impact their mother made when she starred as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, but do ask her style opinion sometimes.

“I mean, they ask for help doing their hair, and ask if I like what they’re wearing. They’ll ask me, do I like their headband? And I try to say to them: ‘Do you like what you’re wearing, what do you think? How do you feel?’

“I want them to feel ok... I mean, often what I’d like to say is ‘it looks ridiculous,’ or ‘the headband is awful,’ or ‘that’s not something I would do,’ but I don’t actually think they want that from me,” she smiled. “They just want to feel ok when they leave.”
