Katherine Heigl: Gorgeous In (Any) Style

by at . Comments

Katherine Heigl has a makeup secret: she loves beauty products!

"When I was in Rhode Island filming (27 Dresses) this summer, I went to Sephora for the first time," she tells InStyle. "It was a holy mecca."

Turns out, her initiation into the cosmetics world brought about a transformation in her bathroom, which she has reorganized to accommodate her treasure trove of products - some of which she gets for free.

"I love getting those boxes," she says.

And while the Grey's Anatomy star and Emmy winner, 28, admits that her arms are wide open to freebies, she does have her limits.

"There comes a point of gluttony I can't accept," she says. "When that happens, I feel like I have to clean out and give stuff to my sister, mom and friends."

While Katherine Heigl admits to being conscious of her looks to the point of her always wearing full makeup in public - "I do not want to be the 'Look What This Celebrity Looks Like Without Makeup' picture," she says - she is also candid about what she considers her imperfect attributes: her complexion and teeth.

"My skin is sensitive, so everything bothers it," she says. "And I'm the jerk who keeps switching products and making it worse."

Heigl also wears an Invisalign retainer, which she removes during the InStyle interview before eating. "I got them because of this wonky tooth," she says. "It's awesome because every two weeks you switch to a new retainer. Pretty much the perfect way to describe Invisalign is Netflix for your teeth."

For her InStyle Hollywood Hair Makeover shoot, the self-professed product fanatic got to try on three different looks for three different covers.

Posing with a glamorous updo, a short, brunette wig and her hair in loose ringlets, Katherine Heigl raved about the experience.

"To have these professionals turning you into someone else is pretty neat," she says â€" especially when it came to her hair. "I've always wanted to be a brunette because in a town of blondes, it makes me look a little more exotic," she says.

Still, she has a favorite look of the three: "The Ingenue," which she calls "sexy but not overtly so." The image, with her hair down and loose, seems to sum up Heigl's style perspective. Says Katie: "I like simple hair and makeup."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
