Fall Makeup with Monica Potter

By Abbie Kozolchyk

Frankly, almost any makeup you put on the average starlet is going to look good. But its real-life wearability is a different story. Which is why we asked Parenthood's Monica Potter -- a busy mother of three -- to take two of our favorite fall looks for a spin.

Monica Potter

You know those impossibly gorgeous celebs who say they wash their face with whatever's in the soap dish, slap on a little SPF and gloss, and walk out the door? Well, Monica Potter -- who plays stay-at-home mother Kristina Braverman on NBC's hit dramedy Parenthood -- isn't one of them. Though clearly a natural-born head turner, she's as serious a product junkie as you'll find. And when you ask her to spill her beauty secrets, she'll oblige quite literally, dumping the entire contents of her cosmetics case for inspection and discussion. So while we always knew she'd be the perfect busy-mom makeup tester (she's got one son in college, another in high school, and a daughter in grade school), we had no idea until we met her just how passionate she'd be about products. Nor that she occasionally even whips up her own. This Cleveland girl with beauty cred to spare upends old ideas of day and evening makeup -- and talks eye bags, concealer, gloss...and more gloss.
