    This fall it’s all about deep, rich makeup—even better if you double-dip on nails and lips. Kat Dennings, back on-screen in the new Thor, shows us how.

    You know her as the brassy, no-filter waitress on CBS’s 2 Broke Girls and the research assistant in Thor (the role she’s now reprising), but she’s also a beauty fan from way back: “My mom got me [makeup artist] Kevyn Aucoin’s Making Faces book for my seventh birthday”; says the 27-year-old Bryn Mann, Pennsylvania, native. “Then she took me to Rite Aid and let me get whatever I wanted.” No wonder she’s rarely seen without a bold lip!

    So you had a really early start in makeup.

    I loved makeup so much as a child. I would sit in front of the mirror and contour my cheeks. That was the beginning of it all, when I realized makeup could change your whole face. And I still buy the drugstore stuff. If I’m going to use something every day — like foundation — why spend $50 if you can get a good one for, like, $12? L’Oreal True Match is my go-to.

    Are you that opinionated about all products?

    I’ve just started really focusing on my skin. I bought a Clarisonic, and I will say it’s the best purchase I’ve ever made. I follow up with organic coconut oil on my face. As far as daily makeup, I always fill in my brows and put on lip stain. I don’t feel confident without a little something on.

    Your character Max on 2 Broke Girls wears a ton of makeup.

    It’s full drag on that show!

    Who are your beauty icons?

    Liv Tyler is one of the most beautiful women alive. We have similar, hair, skin, and eye color, so I’m always looking to see what she’s doing. I love strong women. Tilda Swinton could put an egg on her face and you’d be like, “That bitch is so chic, and that egg looks amazing.”

    For Kat’s look, line your entire mouth with a red lip pencil for a lasting base, then layer on a bright red like Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy ($34) for a satiny finish. The match: Giorgio Armani Nail Lacquer in 400 ($20).
