Actress Kat McNamara, who plays Clary Fray on Shadowhunters and Mia Smoak on Arrow, got her start on Broadway in the 2009 revival of A Little Night Music with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angela Lansbury. Along the way, McNamara, 23, has learned a few beauty secrets, including the following nighttime beauty routine.
On the set of Shadowhunters, McNamara has learned some great beauty secrets from the hair and makeup team. To avoid irritation when cleansing her sensitive skin, she prefers her favorite face wash, Chanel Anti-Pollution Cleansing Milk, which moisturizes and cleanses at the same time. She also uses this face wash while traveling to remove excess pollution.
After she’s done cleansing, she pats her face dry with a clean cotton towel. She then applies Clinique's Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly. "It's so hydrating for your skin, but it doesn't leave behind an oily residue that other moisturizers can leave behind," she says. Also, once a week she uses Patchology's FlashPatch Rejuvenating Eye Gels to reduce puffiness or dark circles. After leaving the product on for ten or 15 minutes, she feels completely refreshed.
