Has the popularity of Jane the Virgin made Gina Rodriguez more self-conscious about how she looks in public? In a word, yes. Two days after she wrapped shooting the show’s dramatic season finale, we caught up with her at a Proctor & Gamble Nueva Latinas Living Fabulosa event in New York City and asked how she’s stepped up her beauty regime after winning a Golden Globe for her breakout role. Also present: Her Jane costar Diane Guerrero and Selenis Leyva of Orange Is the New Black.
Has all the attention made you take your beauty regime up a big notch?
Gina Rodriguez: “Yes. I’m wearing makeup so much more now. And I’m not a woman who wore so much. I had to make sure that I was taking care of my skin, since there are so many products covering up my pores. I use different things; it depends on the time of month and stuff like that. It changes. I love Dermalogica. I love Cetaphil, so many brands. And I’m lucky that I have an amazing makeup artist. She’s incredible. Chris, I love you! And people are letting me wear clothes I wasn’t getting to wear before, so I kind of love that. I love to play dress-up.”
