Before Canadian actress Ksenia Solo shot to fame on the hit Showtime series Lost Girl, opposite Anna Silk, the Latvia-born actress actually had the chance to put her ballet skills to good use opposite Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis in Black Swan as Veronica, a highly competitive dancer who is also trying out for the lead in the ballet. Is there a better last name than “Solo” for a girl trained in competitive dance? With striking blue eyes and dark hair, the petite actress is now the comic relief of Lost Girl as Kenzi, the fiesty human sidekick to Anna Silk’s succubus character Bo. We recently had the chance to meet Ksenia, who is even more beautiful in person, and she was nice enough to tell us all about the beauty products she can’t live without. Here are Ksenia Solo’s 5 favourite beauty products.
1. Niko Cosmetics High-Definition Mineral Make-Up
“Niko’s organic powder foundation is great. Usually organic makeup doesn’t give you great coverage, but we use this on Lost Girl all the time. We can’t get enough. It’s HD-worthy. It covers everything.”
2. Wet n Wild MegaLiner Liquid Eyeliner and 3. Smashbox Photo Matte Anti-Shine Pressed Face Powder
“I love black liquid liner by Wet ‘n’ Wild and the matte powder by Smashbox.”
4. BaByliss Flat Iron
I use a very powerful hair straightener. BaByliss makes a really fantastic one.
5. NARS Cosmetics Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl
“NARS makes an incredible matte lip pencil in red called “Dragon Girl” that I wear frequently because it’s not like lipstick. It’s really matte, and it gives you a really cool pin-up girl style.”
