Christina Hendricks may be best known for the flash of red hair and dangerous curves she flaunts as Joan Holloway on AMC’s “Mad Men,” but the 36 year-old actress is looking to shift the spotlight to a cause that’s close to her heart.
Last evening, as Hendricks glided down the red carpet at The Emmy Awards as a nominee for her role, a 17 year-old named David was at her side. It’s the teen’s greatest wish to attend the glitzy awards show with the actress, a feat made possible through the Make-A-Wish-Foundation—a non-profit that fulfills the wishes of children and teens faced with life-threatening medical conditions.
Hendricks, who is the newest face of lash growth drug Latisse, became involved with the initiative via the Latisse Wishes Challenge Campaign, which aims to raise $500,000 in order make a wish come true in every Make-A-Wish chapter across the country. Consumers can donate at LatisseWishesChallenge.com—and the first 10,000 to donate a minimum of $20 will receive a free trial certificate for Latisse, which otherwise sells for an average of $120 per tube. A prescription from a physician is required to redeem the certificate.
After having been on the lash grower for 17 weeks, Hendricks says her flutter is longer and thicker, giving her “more to work with” when she curls and mascaras her lashes. “It doesn’t take as long to put on eye makeup,” Hendricks told YouBeauty. “And when I do, I get a more dramatic effect with minimal effort.”
But fluttering lashes aren’t the Tennessee native’s only beauty obsession; Hendricks admits to strategically stowing moisturizers all over the house and in multiple handbags the same way people do lip balm, saying that she loves the feeling of applying moisturizer to her naturally dry skin. Her favorite of the moment is 3Lab, a luxury skincare brand that is well known for its antioxidant technology.
