On Her Beauty Routine . . .
POPSUGAR: So tell us a little bit about why you love this fragrance — why does it speak to you?
Alexandra Daddario: It's a really sweet, sort of flirty scent. It's something I think people will notice. You know when you get into an elevator and you're like, "Someone in here really smells good"? I feel like it's one of those really delicious, noticeable scents. It's also a really beautiful bottle. It looks really good on my bureau!
PS: Do you have a first fragrance memory?
AD: My mom bought me Chanel No. 5 for Christmas one year. I think I was 13. It's the most classic sort of perfume, and it was the most exciting thing ever for a young girl. I think I still have that bottle. But I really fell in love with that scent. Scent is actually the strongest thing tied to memory. If I smell Chanel No. 5, I have all of these memories of my mother.
PS: All right, what about application tips? Do you have a signature way you apply?
AD: I usually do the one spritz and a walk-through. And then one more spritz and a quick walk-through.
PS: Love that. So I tweeted out that I was interviewing you, and your fans went crazy. They want an update on your skin regimen.
AD: I really love this organic product line called The Body Deli. You sort of feel like you're putting a salad on your skin sometimes. They make really great moisturizers. It's all plant-based, and the woman in the store says you can eat it if you want to. It doesn't taste good, but you could. It wouldn't be bad for you. It's very natural. Sometimes I use a little bit of olive oil to take my makeup off, and I think that makes a huge difference in your eye area because you're not pulling at your eyes. It's cheap, and it's in the kitchen.
PS: A little DIY skin action! You know, when you smile so much, it's nice to have that olive oil really work out the lines around the eyes.
AD: Yeah! And olive oil is something they put in a lot of moisturizers anyway. So I figure, why not just buy a bottle of olive oil?
