In the current issue of Redbook magazine, stunning Modern Family star Sofia Vergara dishes on how she manages to look glam at all times and whether or not plastic surgery could be a future possibility.
42-year old Sofia Vergara manages to look red carpet ready at all times, with gorgeous long locks and full makeup. Still, the actress admits that it’s a time consuming process and shares some other beauty secrets as well, from her favorite makeup to her favorite skincare products.
REDBOOK: A fun fact about you is that you’re a natural blonde. Does dyeing your hair darker require a lot of upkeep?
Sofia Vergara: Having blonde roots with dark hair, you start looking bald! So I’ve been making it lighter recently, just because it’s easier. When my hair was very dark, I had to dye my roots every month—it was a lot of maintenance. Now I can go two or three months between colorings.
RB: And those bombshell waves of yours—are they natural?
SV: My hair is actually straight, so I use a curling iron to create them because my hair doesn’t do well with a lot of product. I can’t put oils, pomades, or anything else in it because it gets weighed down. I just use shampoo, conditioner, and hairspray. My family has used Head & Shoulders forever [Sofia and her family are spokesmodels for the brand].
RB: What about makeup—what are your go-to products?
SV: I’ve worn the same shades my whole life because I know what looks good on me and at my age. I used to do more black eyeliner, but now that I’m older I wear browns because black can be too much. And I own a million products.
RB: Are there days where you just don’t feel like being glam?
SV: Not really, no. I don’t always curl my hair or wear false lashes, but I do full makeup every day and I always have.
RB: How long does it typically take you to get ready?
SV: An hour and 15 minutes. I take my time—I like showering, scrubbing, bubbling. Everyone is always rushing me! They’ll lie about when an event starts to try to get me there on time. But I always know, so I don’t give a damn.
RB: Is there any part of getting ready that you don’t like?
SV: Manicures. I don’t have the patience for someone to give me one. So I’ll paint my nails in the car on the way to the Golden Globes or to the airport.
RB: Do you have an anti-aging regimen?
SV: I’ve used Crème de la Mer since before I was supposed to; I believe in prevention. Because once your skin is sagging, it’s sagging.
While prevention is a big part of staying forever young—plastic surgery can help once parts do begin to sag. Like eyelids. Which may be why when Redbook asks Sofia if she would consider plastic surgery in the future, she replies with the old “wait and see.”
