Natasha Lyonne rarely washes her face at night

Natasha Lyonne likes the morning after look she wakes up with after sleeping in her make-up.

Natasha Lyonne is “really irresponsible” when it comes to washing her face.

The Orange Is the New Black actress has shared the lowdown on her beauty regime with website Into the Gloss, though admits she isn’t as careful as she should be in regards to taking care of her skin.

“I’m really irresponsible about washing my face at night because I like to go to bed feeling like a winner,” she grinned. “You wake up and look sort of sexy and messy, and the hair is always better the day after… But at some point I’ll take a shower because I’m a good person. And that’s where I really get into it. Usually I’ll do some sort of light exfoliating scrub, a nice milky face wash and when I get out, I do the whole thing - toner, serum, moisturiser, sun block.”

As for what products she uses, Natasha describes herself as a “play-it-as-it-lays kind of woman”, using anything in easy reach.

The flame-haired star is a little more particular about her make-up though, naming Maybelline Great Lash and Dr. Hauschka’s mascara as two of her favourites.

“Six months out of the year I'm wall-to-wall in mascara, because of Orange is the New Black,” she pointed out of her prison inmate alter ego Nicky Nichols in the hit Netflix show. “That's really the character's thing – (lots of mascara) used to be mine, but now it's hers. Although now that I have bangs, I don’t really need mascara in my day-to-day life.”

The actress likes to experiment with the latest cosmetics trends too, revealing she tries to contour but is often told by make-up artists that she’s doing it wrong.
