The sexy and gifted actress Shiri Appleby, best known for her roles in Roswell, Swimfan, Six Degrees and as “Jailbait” in the current Tom Hanks flick, Charlie Wilson’s War, was kind enough to document her SAG Awards red carpet preparation exclusively for Beauty Banter.

Besides being gorgeous and talented (flawless skin, massive brown eyes and a long, thick mane to die for…), Shiri’s also just about the sweetest girl in all of Hollywood! We actually went to junior high together (she was just as equally beautiful and popular back then too!) and lately, we enjoy painting the town every M.A.C. hue of red!

Now back to the SAG Awards…

Shiri opted for a flirty black Miu Miu dress and nude, patent leather Christian Louboutins.

As for her beauty inspiration, she wanted “sexy and soft but modern.”

Daniel Erdman, Shiri’s longtime hair stylist, chose to do loose and long flowing hair with a lot of layers. As for their collaboration, Shiri says, “we just talk about life. I dictate how I feel and he turns it into a style.”

And for her make-up, Shiri actually did it herself (so un-diva… love it)! “I always do my own make-up. When other people do it, I never quite feel like I look like me. I like simple and clean. I’m all about a nice eye and nude lips.”

Shiri’s must-have make-up items (the ones she brought along to the SAG Awards…):
Stila convertible compact in Poppy (a Beauty Banter FAVE)
MAC eyeliner in grey
Rosebud Salve lip balm
DiorShow Blackout Mascara

And her one, can’t live without product…
MAC make-up wipes!
“I’m addicted. They’re soft, non-soapy and great for tired nights when you just don’t feel like washing your face.”

A-list Advice:
“I eat healthy, drink lots of water and work-out.”

Taking care of yourself from the inside out… we like it!
