Star Trek’s new Uhura Zoe Saldana’s star continues to rise. Today the actress was named the newest face of Avon. Zoe will be featured in upcoming promotions for Avon cosmetics and a new fragrance debuting in June. Zoe has also picked up a nomination for her acting work in the mega-hit, Avatar.
She plays one tough chick in her new film, Colombiana, but Zoe Saldana tells PEOPLE she’s always up for ladies’ night.
“My beauty tip for a girls’ night out is … the girls,” she tells PEOPLE in the clip above. “We’re all putting each other together while listening to a good playlist.”
Depending on where she goes at night, Saldana says she keeps it casual or goes “very va-va. If you want to go for a glass of champagne somewhere you put on the heels and you do your hair,” she says.
The actress is dishing beauty advice as the face of Avon‘s Eternal Magic Enchanted fragrance, a scent featuring notes of black raspberry, velvet iris and creamy vanilla. “When I want to escape to a serene, magical place, I spritz Avon Eternal Magic Enchanted — it instantly transports me to paradise,” Saldana says.
But sometimes paradise really is a night with her best friends. “We always have a blast,” she says. “As long as the girls are out, that’s all that matters.”
