Halle Berry Dishes on Looking Ageless, Effortlessly

Just because she’s a Revlon spokesperson doesn’t mean Halle Berry wears a lot of makeup. “I hardly ever wear makeup,” Berry admitted to PEOPLE. “I like to give my skin a break — let it breathe.”

However, she definitely wears a product or two when filming and promoting Revlon’s new ColorStay products.

“I actually have this on today in the ‘Honey’ color,” the spokeswoman said at a recent New York press day, pointing to Revlon’s ‘Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains.’ “I love it — it’s creamy and yummy, not drippy and sticky.”

Revlon is releasing several new ColorStay products this summer — balm stains included — as well as its new ‘ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup’ foundation, which Berry has actually nicknamed. “I call is soufflé,” the bride-to-be joked, “because when I first saw it, I felt like I wanted to eat it!”

The ageless actress is 45, yet she doesn’t look a day over 30. Her secret? Using Kinara Spa skincare products and staying healthy. “It’s cleansing your skin, watching what you eat, no smoking, not too much drinking, no sugar — just simple,” she admitted. “And using sunscreen! If you don’t have a good base, then it doesn’t matter what you put on it — it’s not going to look as great as it could.”

While Revlon is rolling out new cosmetics, the actress has rolled out something new, too: a curly hairstyle. “I actually did it for work,” the star revealed, adding that it’s for her latest film, The Hive. “But I also look at hair as an accessory, just like a handbag or a pair of shoes. It’s something you can put on, play with for awhile and then take it off and try something different.”

Berry is simple in the sense that her beauty must-have is a “good lip balm,” so it’s not surprising that she likes her hairstyle’s ease. “When you have short hair, sometimes you have to play with it a little to make it look good,” she explained. “This [pointing to her hair] is what you call wash-and-wear beach hair. It’s ready to go!”
