Hilary Swank surprised us when she stepped out in a shocking-pink Christian Siriano dress at the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge launch in New York last week. Unlike her playful attire, the vibrant star kept her makeup simple, favoring a natural palette for an inspiring reason. “As you can see I don’t really wear a lot of makeup,” she told InStyle. “Tonight I have some mascara on and some lipstick and a little blush but I’m not big makeup wearer in general. I think its super important in this day and age, when women are so trivialized and objectified, to really show the real when we can.”
In addition to a minimal-makeup philosophy, Swank relishes any opportunity to visit N.Y.C. facialist Christine Chin. “I will come [to New York] just to see her. No one takes care of my skin like her. I use her soaps and her products.” Back home, the actress favors washing her face with the help of Clarisonic (starting at $99; clarisonic.com) and no matter what, “I use Peter Thomas Roth sunscreen ($42; sephora.com), sunscreen even when it’s raining.”

When it comes to movie roles, Hilary Swank knows some have a little more impact than others.
But one of the films that made great strides for an entire group was her portrayal of a transgender male in the 1999 film Boys Don’t Cry.
During an appearance on Thursday’s all-new Meredith Vieira Show, Swank was asked about the progress made for the transgender community since the film’s release. As it turns out, the actress believes we as a society still have some work to do.
“I think we have taken strides since that movie, like you said 15 years ago,” she explained to Meredith Vieira. “We have a long way to go.”
She continued, “It’s astonishing to me that we are here in 2015 and there are so many issues that need to be looked at and handled and we shouldn’t dictate who people should love.”
