There's always been something about Claire Danes — that statuesque figure, an unassuming natural beauty, and, of course, her incredible talent. (Come on, who couldn't relate to her realistic portrayal of teen angst as Angela Chase on the cult classic My So-Called Life?)
These days, you might say her glow radiates from her eyes or, rather, her gorgeous long eyelashes. And those come courtesy of Latisse, the prescription lash-enhancement treatment. I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Danes — the new spokesperson for Latisse — to discuss her experience with the product.
"Latisse has worked extraordinarily well for me," says Danes. "One friend I recently met up with thought I was wearing false lashes!" The actress explains that it takes 16 weeks for you to achieve the daily treatment's full effects. The actress had her treatment period documented to reveal her month-by-month results. She says she noticed her lashes first grew longer, then fuller, and then darker. "I was amazed by the before-and-after photos," says Danes.
Danes says she considers her everyday makeup look to be relatively low maintenance. "I clean, tone, and moisturize my face, and prefer tinted moisturizer as foundation," she says. So, for her, the best part about Latisse is that it simplifies her beauty regimen. Having dramatic eyelashes means she can wear less makeup. And that is something her hubby (actor Hugh Dancy), who she admits has an aversion to makeup that looks "done", can appreciate.
Be sure to check out the actress (and those lashes) on her new hit TV show, Homeland, where she portrays a CIA agent.
