In an interview with Who What Wear, Claws actress Karrueche Tran discusses her beauty routine and more.
When asked to talk through her skincare routine, Tran obliged, saying, "I’m a shower person. Even if I showered at night and I’m going to the gym in the morning, I’ll do a quick shower in the morning. So I’ll wash my face with Tatcha Rice Wash. Let’s just say it’s a regular day, and I’m not doing a photo shoot or anything like that. I’ll use the Dior Capture Totale Serum and the moisturizer together. That’s kind of it!"
When asked about her role in Claws as a manicurist, and if nails are as important to her in real life, Tran said, "Absolutely. And I feel like ever since I’ve been on the show, I have to make sure my nails are on point. It’s happened so many times where I’ll be in the airport or just wherever, people will be like, 'Girl, let me see your claws.' Sometimes, they’ll be done, but other times, if I’m traveling while we’re shooting, we have to wear our nails natural because we do so many nail changes. So people are like, 'Let me see your nails,' and I’m like oh my god, they’re really ugly right now. Even if I’m not wearing long fake nails, I’ll make sure I have a nice manicure. My go-to polish for a neutral color is Kiss the Bride. That color is life-changing and the easiest color. Now, the season premiere [of Claws] is coming up soon, and I’m doing all this press. Before I left L.A., I made sure to get my nails done. I have to represent for the show and have really cool nails. I went to my girl Michelle. There’s an artist, Yayoi Kusama. We did nails inspired by her. They’re super cute. They’re yellow with black dots."
When asked if there's anything about her beauty routine that surprises people, Tran said, "I did a 'get ready with me' for the DFTAs a couple weeks ago, and I did one of these tricks that I usually do when I’m getting ready for a photo shoot or an event. After I wash my face and I dry it, [when] there’s nothing on my face yet, and I take an ice cube and just rub it all over my face, on top of my eyelids, under my eyes, because I can get puffiness under my eyes sometimes. It just feels good to my skin, it tightens the pores, and I feel like it kind of wakes me up a little bit. I posted it online and it got a lot of responses. People were like, 'Oh my god, I want to try that.' I think that’s one of the oldest tricks in the book. If you know, you know."
