This week, I interviewed one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, who is also the new face of Dolce & Gabbana Make up! Personally, I feel like this is a great match – Not only is she a Dolce & Gabbana woman… her face is definitely one we can relate to here in the Middle East. We spoke about her skin care, her favorite beauty products, the Middle East and how she keeps an amazing body!

Hi Monica! Congrats on being the new face of Dolce & Gabbana make up! What beauty tips do you swear by?
I take care of my skin, as luminosity is the basis of all good make up. I am religious about cleansing and moisturizing. I also try to drink a lot of water to keep my eyes bright and sparkling.


I adore the Dolce & Gabbana Foundation – what are your favorite products from the collection?
Perfect Finish Creamy Foundation is perfect as a base as it’s lighter than air and doesn’t make me feel ‘caked’.
For lipstick I love all the shades in the Monica Collection and feel drawn to the different shades depending on how I feel. I adore the Attractive one, which is the shade I wore for the advertising campaign. It’s a really fulsome, seductive red that is just timeless. It’s the perfect red and looks incredible – it’s such rich, sensual colour.


We love your figure here at myfashdiary – how do you stay in shape?
I love being outside so I try to be outside as much as possible, and I’m very active in looking after my family. I am not really strict with any fitness regime though. It is a great pleasure enjoying good food with friends either at home or at a favourite restaurant.


Any plans to visit the Middle East soon?
Hopefully! I love travelling. Recently I have been spending most of my time in Europe and South America so it would be nice to change my surroundings and travel to the Middle East soon.


What is one make up product you can’t live without?
I really love the Dolce&Gabbana mascara for beautiful, full lashes. I love to layer it up so that I have a really full,  feathery lashes. That’s a beautiful look. It looks perfect when I use it for example with the eyeshadow Quad in Femme Fatale – the shades in the quad are slightly shimmery nudes with a deep graphite grey, and the colours blend beautifully when I want to build up a really dramatic smokey eye, but can be used on their own in the daytime, too.
