The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s Christmas episodes, titled, “12 Days of Giveaways,” are always celebrity packed, and this year is no different. Reese Witherspoon was one of the recent celebrities to join Ellen DeGeneres on her plush seats among the exaggerated Christmas decorations. Dressed in a red, black, and white Draper James dress, the actress looked stunning as she joked with DeGeneres about only being invited on the show during Christmas time. DeGeneres told Witherspoon that she is invited around the holidays because of her Southern hospitality—she always brings a gift. Witherspoon did not disappoint this year, and brought DeGeneres a hot toddy kit, which the pair joked about indulging in after the show. DeGeneres took to Twitter and said, “I love when @RWitherspoon is here. And not just because she always brings me a gift.”
DeGeneres also had surprise for Witherspoon—she hung a Witherspoon Christmas wreath in honor of the actress. The social media phenomenon was started by hit show, The Mindy Project, when main character Dr. Mindy Lahiri created a decoration that featured photos of Reese Witherspoon stuck onto a Christmas wreath.
Witherspoon was on the Ellen show to promote her upcoming animated movie, Sing.
Reese Witherspoon Reveals Her Beauty Secrets
Stunning as usual, Reese Witherspoon’s appearance on Ellen reminded us that the 40-year-old actress just doesn’t age. Witherspoon, who is known for her natural beauty, reminded us that she can look gorgeous even without wearing makeup, as she did in the movie Wild. She is very lax with her makeup tips, and likes to keep her routine as simple as possible. When speaking with Marie Claire, Witherspoon revealed, “I’m such a girly girl, I really enjoy it. I like to keep things quick and easy so I can be up and out in five minutes. I’m lucky to have other people who worry about how I look. That’s pretty nice.”
When off-duty, Witherspoon tends to lean towards neutrals, keeping her eyeshadows and lipsticks in the taupe color range. So, besides having good genes, what are Reese Witherspoon’s best beauty products that keep her skin looking flawless? Witherspoon has a beauty tip secret that keeps her skin clear and blemish-free, even after wearing all that holiday makeup. “If I start to get blemishes, I add chlorophyll to my water and my skin clears up in three days.”
Witherspoon’s hair and makeup always seem to get the attention of fans during her appearances at award shows. Not one to shy away from an occasional statement lip color, Witherspoon otherwise keeps her look very fresh and natural. For the 2016 Oscar’s, Witherspoon’s makeup artist, Molly Stern, gave the Southern belle a dewy complexion to help boost her naturally youthful glow; she also used a chestnut color blush to help enhance the hollows of her cheeks, followed by a cream blush for a dewy finish. No matter if Reese Witherspoon is off-duty or walking the red carpet, the actress always looks flawless thanks to her natural approach to beauty and style.
