The mystery has finally been solved as to why celebrity mom Angelina Jolie is always photographed with her dark shades on (even well into the evening hours): Girlfriend doesn’t like to wear make-up!
The mother-of-six says it’s difficult for her to maintain a “high-maintenance” look, and with all those children and the traveling that she does, we don’t blame her.
The Hollywood beauty tells Britain’s OK magazine that keeping up appearances takes a lot of work.
She says: “It takes a long time to be a girl. In “The Tourist” there was so much emphasis on style – it wasn’t like “Salt” where you can kind of just go out and prance in a black shirt.”
“The shoes had to match the bag, the nails had to be done every day, it was fun for the first few weeks, but then I was so happy when it was done,” she added.
For her day-to-day look, Angelina says she prefers a low-maintenance look, which many working mothers are very familiar with: a relaxed style that includes no make up and a pair of big black shades.
She explains, “For press events I go to hair and make-up and get dressed nicely, but most of the time I’m not and so I get to relax. You just put an extra pair of sunglasses in your bag just in case.”
