Want to know what made me loose my mind this morning? When I went to check my Yahoo account, there was an interview with Jennifer Aniston. I started reading and I thought it was odd how much the interviewer was swooning over Aniston, then boom! I realized who the interviewer was. Makeup mogul Bobbi Brown was interviewing Jennifer Aniston! I mean whats better than that?
I had absolutely no idea that Bobbi Brown had become the editor of Yahoo Beauty. Am I the only one who missed that golden nugget of information? Anyways, after they both gushed about how they are huge fans of each other (Jennifer is Bobbi’s style icon and Jennifer wants Bobbi to do her makeup) they got down to the nitty gritty.
To start, Brown asked Aniston how she always looks so put together in just jeans and a tee shirt. Her secret? The woman tailors her tees! BOOM! Mind blown. For tee shirts and tank tops, Aniston cites Theory and James Perse as having the best. For jeans she grabs Genetic, Helmet Lang and Hudson (which she removes the pockets from). When Bobbi jokes that her stylist Christopher McMillan must live with her, she laughs it off and says she’s just learned good tricks from him.
They then start talking about Jennifer Aniston’s line of hair care products: Living Proof. How genius is it that the woman who brought us ‘the Rachel’ is now making hair products?
BB: Tell me about the Living Proof products. They are absolutely amazing; my hair got really dry from going in the ocean and honestly, they saved me. They’re excellent!
JA: Have you discovered the restore mask yet? That’s a game changer. I do it every Sunday because I do highlight my hair. The one thing with hair, as we get older, is it doesn’t necessarily react as beautifully as it used to when we were in our 20s, which I never knew. Did you know that, that hair ages?
BB: I am learning that now unfortunately. It grows thinner.
JA: [Laughs.] It loses weight.
BB: Your body doesn’t get thinner, but your hair does. That’s how I know God is not a woman.
The two continue to joke around like old pals. They discuss that a healthy diet and exercise are important aspects in keeping gorgeous skin. Aniston says her diet is all about balance; so she only eats things like bread on the weekends. Whatever she is doing is clearly paying off.
JA: There is also this pressure in Hollywood to be ageless. I think what I have been witness to, is seeing women trying to stay ageless with what they are doing to themselves. I am grateful to learn from their mistakes, because I am not injecting s**t into my face.
JA: No honestly, I see them and my heart breaks. I think, “Oh god if you only know how much older you look.” They are trying to stop the clock and all you can see is an insecure person who won’t let themselves just age. I also have a fiancé; who will put a gun to my head if I touch my face in any way.
BB: My husband is the same way. When I feel that I am not looking as young and fresh as I like—usually after a night of tequila and bread—I will put extra moisturizer and face oil on my skin so that whatever lines are in my face look better. It is just about being hydrated; that has been my secret.
JA: Well, that’s true, it’s hydration, and there are also so many things that women can do today with technology in terms of LED light therapy, good lasers that tighten the muscles, and massages for your face—and don’t forget great creams. I think that’s the route to go. I also understand that age is kind of awesome. I am fortunate enough to know women like Gloria Steinem, who I think is one of the most stunning women on the planet, and doesn’t touch her face. Diane Keaton, Annette Bening, all of these fabulous fearless women who are flawless, they embrace it! You know, to each their own; I don’t judge it if you do it, but sometimes I wish I could beg the people I know, who I am very near and dear to, to not touch their face.
BB: I think we should encourage women to just be happy with who they are and look in the mirror less.
