What's in Your Bag, Kristen Bell?

The actress and mom of two keeps it on the natural side.

Kristen Bell has acted since she was a teenager but is currently relishing her role as mom to her daughters. Though she is used to the spotlight, her beauty look has evolved. “I wear a lot less makeup now, because some days I don’t even have time to shower,” she says. Bell may rely on dry shampoo for her more hectic days, but she always tries to find time to cook a healthful meal for her family. Spaghetti squash is in heavy rotation these days.
