When Emmanuelle waltzed into our interview (fresh off the red carpet from the Golden Globes), she looked absolutely radiant in a super-hot Max Mara jumpsuit and sky-high black heels, beyond excited to chat with us about her beauty must-haves and what drives her style choices.

Mineral Fusion body lotion, shampoo, and conditioner

As we were testing and playing with some of her most covetable Mineral Fusion products — everything from revitalizing body lotion to the prettiest nail polishes — the former Entourage glamour girl filled us in on her beauty routine, favorite red carpet moments and more!

SheKnows: What is your number one secret for keeping your skin glowing?

Emmanuelle Chriqui: Washing off my makeup every night before I go to bed! It’s so important. I’m a big skin girl. I also love to get body scrubs when I can, and use the Mineral Fusion Waterstone Lotion that is clinically proven to keep skin hydrated for 24 hours!

SK: How do you keep your hair looking fabulous and healthy?

EC: I love Mineral Fusion’s Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner. If I use a shampoo that’s made of unnatural products, it makes my hair limp, and I don’t have that problem with this!

SK: Who are some of your favorite red carpet fashion designers?

EC: I definitely haven’t worn some of my favorite designers. Dior makes some sick gowns. I also love Balmain. Obsessed. If I could wear that all the time, I would love it. It’s sexy, but has that masculine edge to it. I also love vintage Halston and Calvin Klein.

SK: How would you describe your style?

EC: I like to be simple. A simple dress that just looks amazing on your body.

SK: Which celeb would you love to trade closets with if you could?

EC: You know who has the sickest style? Zoe Saldana! Stunning. Always simple, refined and sexy. She’s never trying too hard. Joy Bryant also has great style.
