AnnaSophia Robb: The new Carrie Bradshaw

In “The Carrie Diaries,” the television prequel to “Sex and the City,” AnnaSophia Robb stars as a 16-year-old, pre-Manolo, pre-Big Carrie Bradshaw. But unlike the fashion-obsessed icon she plays on screen, Robb has a low-maintenance approach to makeup and clothes. We discuss.

Putting the makeup on … and taking it off

“I don’t really wear make-up anymore. … I kind of stopped because when I’m working I have it on for up to 15 hours a day. So on the weekends or before work, I only put on moisturizer.”

Makeup from the ’80s — yay or nay?

“Eighties makeup was just a bunch of colors and crazy neon. I don’t know if I love it. The blush was really strong and bright and if you didn’t have the skin tone to pull it off, it was way too heavy. But, if you put a piece of paper on your cheek to create that hard, drastic line, that look can be fun.”

Her beauty mantra

“Look after your eyebrows! I was given an eyebrow brush on a job that I still use to this day. My friends make fun of me but I love it. When I was younger my mother taught me how to apply blush. Get it wrong and there’ll be way too much color and you’ll just look ‘warm.’ Using bronzer is best.”

The secret to nailing Carrie’s hair: A wig

“I naturally have straight hair, which takes about two hours to curl, so it’s faster for me to wear a wig. Carrie wears a lot of updos on the show so we’ve been able to use a lot of fun accessories: banana clips and pins.”

If she could raid one ‘SATC’ closet she’d choose …

“Carrie’s — I loved the skirts. She has a wild sense of style.”
