THOUGHTS:  I find the happier and healthier you are, the less makeup you need and the less time it takes to apply it.  I agree with Audrey Hepburn’s philosophy of a woman’s beauty:  “The beauty of a woman is not in the not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”

BEAUTY WITH BOBBI: CATE BLANCHETT

Today on Yahoo Beauty, Editor in Chief and cosmetics guru, Bobbi Brown, interviews the on-screen beauty and chameleon, Cate Blanchett.  The actress discusses her personal style, fitness routine, thoughts on going under the knife and, as she says, having “a funny old face.”

On “her look” -  I’ve got a funny old face. Someone described it once, and I think they were being kind, as character. But I know what they mean! I’ve never been that conventional. I suppose maybe it means that my face can look different in different lights, so I just try and sort of keep it simple when I’m going out, to still look like me.

What’s in her bag – I always, always have a lip balm in my bag for when things get quite dry.

How she stays fit – If I’m time-poor, which I usually am, that’s the first thing to go. And I know it shouldn’t be, I know I should be really regular, but I like to get it done as quickly as possible.  It’s not necessarily about weight so much as it is about being fit. The thing that ended up keeping me fit is being on stage. It’s really physical doing eight shows a week.

Her plastic surgery philosophy – Women have been doing very, very strange things for centuries. I mean ancient Egyptians were already doing that, but I don’t necessarily judge people who do. I don’t really think it makes people look better; they just look different.

She made a promise to her husband to never go under the knife – Unfortunately there a lot of women out there who are not getting the same level of unconditional love from their partners.
