Digital Studio; Jason Merritt/Getty Jennifer Garner always stuns, whether she's walking the red carpet or strolling the streets with her little ones. And with three kids, one can't help but wonder "how does she do it?" A burning beauty question of our own, we sat down with the star and mother of three for our January issue to get the scoop on her beauty routine. Garner dished on how she balances her workout schedule with her beauty regimen, who she really enjoys getting dolled up for (hint: they're under the age of 10!), and her must-have beauty products. Read on for the full Q&A with Jennifer Garner. I see this is a ponytail day—not surprising since you’re a busy mom.Well, my hair is clean, so let’s stop and appreciate that for a moment! But I’ll be going to work later, and that’s nice because I get blowouts on the set. You got up early to fit in a shampoo?Actually, I worked out at 5:30, then showered quickly. Oh, wait, no—I took the kids to school first, then came back and showered and washed my hair. The moms who show up at school already looking great that early in the morning? I don’t understand them. You seem to be doing just fine! Do you always exercise first thing in the a.m.?Yeah. I’ve seen more sunrises with my trainer, Valerie Waters, than with anyone else. If I don’t work out early, it’s hard for me to gear up and do it later. We do a mix of strength training and cardio. Of course, if I’m nursing, it takes a hit. If I have a sick kid, it takes a hit. It takes a lot of hits. What about your beauty routine?Pretty simple. I wash my face in the morning, then put on sunscreen, concealer, blush, mascara, and I’m good to go. At night, if I’m going out, I’ll use an eyebrow pencil, a cream eye shadow, and a nude lip pencil. I’m not one to do a dramatic eye or a bold red lip. And when you’re all made up and looking gorge, is your husband good about sending compliments your way?Oh, he notices, but it’s my daughters who really care. When I dress up, it’s for them!
