Nicole Richie spoke to PeopleStyle for their 5 Questions video series. She shared her reasons for not really wearing make-up, thus unintentionally joining Alicia Keys’ “Make-up Free Movement.”

“I stay away from makeup because it clogs my skin. I know people [who] are so comfortable in makeup and they feel alive and that is what they love to do,” she continues. “So I wouldn’t say that I am against it because I know people that really get joy and feel the most like themselves when they put on makeup. I feel the most like myself when I don’t have any on and so that’s the road that I go down.”

“That’s probably the one rule that I do,” she adds, while chatting off-screen. “Some people love to wear makeup and that’s their thing. They like it. They’re comfortable in it. It’s not something that I would do. I like having a bare face. That’s me.”

Nicole also shared her tips on how to dress when you’re only 5’1.

“I’m 5-ft-1-in., so I can’t just go and wear some miniskirt,” she tells PeopleStyle. “That would look a lot better on someone 5-ft-9-in. I have to work with my body, and I like to be comfortable. My go-to look is loose pants and a tank top. I’m really into bodysuits. If I am at home, it’s sweats. I like to be supercozy.”

Her favourite suggestions are:

Flowy Dresses
“I just love them,” she says. “I love them for summer. I don’t like to feel like I’m wearing anything. It’s easy just to throw on.”

Wide-Leg Trousers
“I like things loose all the time,” she says. “I don’t like a lot of things touching my skin. While I do love jeans, I don’t like to be constricted all the time so that’s why I wear a lot of loose pants.”

A Little Skin
“A sliver is appropriate sometimes,” she says. “I don’t do it all the time. It’s just about knowing your audience and do it when it’s appropriate, like a party. What’s not appropriate for me is that I am running around all day so I wouldn’t be wearing something like that — and I am 34, so I wouldn’t be doing that. [More skin] would look so cute on a 20-year-old all day. But that’s just not my life.”

Jumpsuits
“I love to wear [a jumpsuit] while running around with the kids,” she says.
