Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Ming-Na Wen gives beauty and style tips at the GBK Lounge

Actress Ming-Na Wen joined celebrity designer Charlie Lapson to talk fashion, her favorite products, and beauty tips at the GBK Celebrity Style Lounge. Dressed cozy-chic, the actress proudly sported her new outfit–a gray sweater, burgundy colored jeans, and a pair of nude open-toe pumps–which she purchased in Paris.

We first asked her to give us some beauty tips, specifically make-up. She believes, “false eye lashes is a must…for any girl, really.” For this occasion, she herself used some Stila cosmetics, and lip gloss. In fact, she believes that once you put your make-up on right, you only need to worry about reapplying lipstick. As for her hair, she uses Wen conditioner by her friend, Chaz Dean.


Wen also had some wise words when it comes to fashion, she suggests to “dress for who you are.” During down-time, mainly in summer, Ming-Na enjoys wearing sundresses because they’re both comfortable and appropriate for the Californian weather. As for where to find them, that ranges from H&M to Target to Brandy Melville, as long as you find the “look that works for you.”

Currently, Ming-Na plays Agent Melinda May on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. created by Joss Whedon. The action star thinks everyone should have a job that permits them to run, jump, and kick-butt all day.
