Julie Bowen Shares Her Beauty and Style Secrets

Julie Bowen Shares Her Beauty and Style Secrets

Hey pretties! I recently had the opportunity to pick the brain of one of my favorite actresses, the fabulous Julie Bowen.  You probably already know Julie as the perfectly imperfect mom Claire Dunphy from ABC’s Modern Family.  But she is also one of the faces of Neutrogena and joined me via Skype to share some of her juiciest beauty and style secrets with us.

In our interview, Julie spilled her secret to younger looking hands (which I immediately stole!), talked skin care for women over 40, shared her must-have beauty products, explained to me why she refers to her everyday style as “Derelicte” (Zoolander fans rejoice!) and much, much more.  Tune in to check out our full interview below.

It’s Your Turn:  What was your favorite tip that Julie shared?  Tell me in the comments!


Speaking of makeup, have you girls tried 3D fiber mascara yet?  My friend Nicole sells Younique products and she recently got me hooked on their Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes.  When she asked me to try it, I turned her down at first because I have really sensitive eyes and can only wear certain brands of mascara.  The cool thing is you apply the 3D fibers over your regular mascara so they don’t irritate my eyes at all.  They add tons of thickness to my natural lashes.  Now I’m wearing them every day, even when I don’t leave the house!

Here’s a picture of Nicole wearing the 3D fiber mascara on one of her eyes.  Big difference!  P.S.  Isn’t she gorgeous? Nicole is giving away a starter set of Moodstruck 3D Fiber Mascara (a $29 value) to one lucky GYPO girl.  Just pick one of the ways to enter below.  A winner will be drawn next Wednesday.
