Halle Berry Shares Beauty Tips and Summer Style

The beautiful Halle Berry likes to keep her style simple and chic during the summer. The extremely busy mother, actress and bride-to-be tells Stylelist, her five minute makeup includes face powder and Just Bitten Kissable in Honey.

Berry suggests the importance of having a good base for your makeup look. “You have to find a foundation that completely matches your skin tone, so you don’t have a different color face and body; something that’s light, oil-free and doesn’t feel too heavy. Everything else you can add, like an eye and mouth, but you have to get a good base,” she says.

She describes her effortless hair style as freeing and a way to define her inner beauty. “I am my best self when I have super short hair. That’s when I feel most like me and most confident…growing up as a black woman, I felt that if I didn’t have long hair, I wasn’t going to be beautiful. I always thought that. Cutting my hair was freeing. Someone saying you’re beautiful and the fact that you have no hair makes you even more beautiful, said to me it’s not about my hair. It’s about something else we emanate. I’ve lived with that my whole life,” explains Berry.

Berry’s summer style includes flip flops, ethnic prints, and “flowy” dresses. –Ashley Jeter
