Adams, who prefaces our conversation with вЂњI have sensitive skin,вЂќ has also jumped on the oil cleanser bandwagon. вЂњI've been using Tatcha's Camellia Oil Cleanser ($48); it's really lovely,вЂќ she says.
When her skin's irritated, Adams uses Tatcha's Rice Powder Exfoliant ($65), and she's turned to La Mer ($155) to cure her chronically dry skin. вЂњIt's really made a difference for me,вЂќ she says.
вЂњI try not to over wash my face,вЂќ Adams says, explaining why she skips cleanser and makes do with a вЂњquick rinseвЂќ in the morning.вЂќ Perhaps not surprisingly, the pale redhead always wears sunscreen. вЂњI've been wearing L'Oreal's Sublime ($11),вЂќ she says.Tullio M.

вЂњI tend to wear muted tones of eyeliner, like a champagne or taupe, for a more natural look,вЂќ Adams says. вЂњI like to wear black for the red carpet, but in life it's a little severe.вЂќ
Though she loves the different colors of Fresh's Sugar Lip Treatment ($23), Adams keeps it basic when it comes to moisturizing her lips. вЂњI've been using Burt's Bees ($3)!вЂќ
Dry skin and frequent travel are a brutal combination; Adams fights back with Jurlique's Rose Water Mist ($34). вЂњThey make it in a travel size that I always take on the airplane,вЂќ says Adams.
After moisturizer and sunscreen, Adams will add a bit of Jouer's Luminizing Moisture Tint ($38) before she heads out the door. вЂњUnless I'm working, I tend to keep it to a minimum to give my skin a break,вЂќ she says. She does, however, wear Benefit's Bad Gal Lash ($19) Mascara. вЂњI have really long lashes, but they're very fine so I find that lengthening or volumizing mascaras tend to clump on me--this really separates my lashes.вЂќ
Adams uses Redken's All Soft Shampoo ($17) and Conditioner ($18) and smoothes Moroccan Oil ($39) into her ends post-shower. вЂњI'd love to blame it on my daughter, but the truth is I've always been a wash-and-go kind of girl,вЂќ says the actress. вЂњPlus, I find that if you don't over-style it all the time, it looks really great when it is styled!вЂќ
When Adams was growing up in Colorado she used Skin Trip ($11) everyday. вЂњI just recently smelled it on someone in Boston and I actually tracked it down on this man at the gym and was like, 'I know that smell!'вЂќ So she logged onto Amazon and bought вЂњtons of it.вЂќ
Adams recently told Allure that her face is like a blank canvas--but that doesn't include her brows. вЂњI have really thick brows so for me it's about keeping them maintained,вЂќ she says. When she fills them in for red carpet appearances, she uses Benefit's Brow Zings ($30).
When asked what she's learned from long-time makeup artist Stephen Sollitto, Adams doesn't hesitate: вЂњIf you do your eyes before your face makeup you can be a little--not sloppy, but have more freedom,вЂќ she says. вЂњThen you can use a makeup removing cloth to remove whatever's fallen and then do your face makeup.вЂќTatcha Camellia Oil Cleanser $48ShopFresh Sugar Lip Treatment $23ShopTatcha Rice Powder Exfoliant $65ShopRedken All Soft Shampoo $17ShopJouer Luminizing Moisture Tint $38ShopBenefit Bad Gal Lash $19ShopLa Mer Soft Cream $155ShopMountain Ocean Skin Trip $11ShopBurt's Bees Lip Balm $3ShopBenefit Brow Zings $30ShopJurlique Rose Water Mist $34ShopL'Oreal Sublime Sunscreen Oil $11Shop
