What Camilla Luddington Cut from Her Diet to Get Rid of Acne

What Camilla Luddington Cut from Her Diet to Get Rid of Acne

Unlike other actresses who wear full faces of HD makeup for on-camera close-ups, it’s a different story for Camilla Ludington.

The woman plays an over-worked doctor on the hit TV show Grey’s Anatomy, so it makes sense that her character doesn’t consider perfectly painted makeup to be a first priority.

With that being the case, it isn’t the least bit surprising that in her real life she’s actually pretty excited about beauty products. For details on her go-to routine, what she cut out of her diet to rid her complexion of acne and what scent she’s been wearing for a decade, keep reading.

What is your everyday makeup look?
On Grey’s Anatomy our makeup is super (emphasis on super) natural, so I actually like to play it up more in my everyday life. My go-to is a bronzed lid with a cat-eye liner and a nude lip.

What is your signature lip color?
I actually mix two colors. I use Laura Mercier Lipstick in Peche (which gives it the nude color) as a base and top it with Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Soft Coral when I want a little more color.

Bronzer or blush?
Both! I take Benefit’s Hoola Matte Bronzer and I use it for a subtle contour. I sweep it down my temples, under my cheekbones and then under my jaw to make a 3-shape on my face. Then I take my Benefit Coralista Blush and I add it for a pop of color just on my cheeks.

Camilla Luddington talks all thing beauty

The UK-born TV and film actress, aka Dr. Jo Wilson on Grey’s Anatomy (season 11 premieres September 25), shares her personal beauty addictions.

Morning routine:
I use Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths. Then for everyday makeup I use Dior Airflash foundation for light coverage, Hoola by Benefit for a bronzer, my Shisedo eyelash curler to curl and then YSL Volume Effet for mascara. I use Anastasia Brow Wiz crayon in Brunette to fill in my brows.

Overnight skin ritual:
I use the same skin wipes to take off my makeup, and sometimes baby oil to remove my eye makeup. I then use Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil on my lips as they get dry in the winter, and Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Youth Regenerating Cream on my face.

Who cuts/colors your hair:
Christina Meneses cuts and colors my hair.

Hair habit:
I use sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners, like L’Oreal EverPure Sulfate Free Color Care System, and Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse to give my hair texture.

Favorite eye look:
A brown smoky eye with individual lashes added to the upper corners to give a cat eye [effect].

Go-to lipstick:
I like a soft, peachy lip so YSL’s Rouge Volupte Lipstick in #13 is my go-to.

Nail color of the moment:
Marc Jacobs red nail polish.

Signature scent:
Princess by Vera Wang. It’s all I’ve worn for years.

“Never without” product:
Shiseido Oil-Free UV Protector. I add three drops to my foundation.

Secret to staying young and beautiful:
Drinking water, which I hate, so I always carry Crystal Light in my purse.
