Amanda Seyfried is cool. And pretty. And so down to earth, probably the most down to earth celebrity I’ve ever gotten the chance to interview. Which is probably why her throngs of fans adore her absolutely, since her big screen debut as fun-loving airhead Karen Smith in Mean Girls. Recently in town for the opening of the first Clé de Peau Beauté flagship store, the 31-year-old shared gave us an intimate look into her new life as a mother and how her priorities have changed.

On her driving force… My next meal, that’s just natural. Or the next episode of the TV show I’m watching. Of course, knowing I have a safe space to come home to, where people can rely on me and I can rely on them. And my desire to be a good mother.
On her new life as a mother… My concept of beauty has completely changed. To me, it’s important to take care of yourself in a less obsessive way, and I’ve become less focused on myself because of a difference in priorities.
On her current skincare routine… My routine hasn’t really changed with the baby. Maybe I’ve been really lucky, but my skin used to be prone to red spots in the past, but since using La Creme, it’s been less prone to dryness. And I’ve also been blessed with what they call “pregnancy glow” which has lasted.

On her first Clé de Peau Beauté product… La Creme. When I first used it, it was exactly what I’ve been looking for, something that would protect my skin and felt luxurious. It’s like a weird puzzle to figure out what’s right for me and to me, La Creme was it.
On being the face of Clé de Peau Beauté… It gave me structure and made me understand that it is important to take care of myself. And that through taking care of my skin, it makes me feel cleaner and better inside out and outside in.
On her personal style… I’m really casual. I love t-shirts in white, black and grey, with jeans. I love cashmere sweaters, and I probably spend too much money on them. Recently I’ve also been into yoga pants, because they’re so fancy now and it’s easy to just jazz them up.
On how she unwinds… I watch TV. Be it Netflix or Amazon Prime, I’m so attached to binge-watching. I like to do some crotchet also. Plus swimming and hiking.
On her favourite makeup hacks… I will dye my lashes and add mascara to take the attention away from my skin if I’m experiencing a breakout.
On her travel essentials… I always pack La Creme, The Concealer and a red lipstick.
On her favourite Fall look... I love a deeper, cooler brown red, which is actually easy to wear.
