During the 11 years of the running hit series, the 47-year-old actress explained she’d do her own makeup every day. While speaking all things beauty, Sofia explained, “it was like therapy.

As beauty lovers ourselves, we totally understand the Colombian beauty’s form of therapy. Touching on her daily routine today, Sofia admitted how she’s been using her makeup ritual to support her mental health. While Live via Instagram on Charlotte’s Beauty Happy Hour, Sofia shared she doesn't feel herself when she’s barefaced for too long.

“I’ve always been a person that has some kind of makeup on…always, always,” expressed the Colombiana. “I was in my pajamas the whole day; I thought we have to stay home in pajamas, I guess. I realized it’s getting me depressed. I have to start my normal thing of waking up, showering, and I feel better, start working, do things from home. I needed makeup just for myself and to not feel like I am sick.”

There’s a psychological shift that happens when the magic of makeup enhances a woman’s natural beauty. Whether you’re a celebrity or not, creating your own makeup ritual has proven to lift one’s mood according to the star.
