Playing everything from an ashen-faced vampire queen in True Blood to a bronzed vixen in Gucci’s latest fragrance campaign, style chameleon Evan Rachel Wood is ready to surprise her fans at every turn. “I have fun playing with makeup,” she tells PEOPLE. The actress shared many of her favorite style tips, including the secret to keeping her porcelain visage flawless: “I am SPF crazy. I have sunscreen in the door of my car. I have sunscreen in my purse.” Sun protection aside, the self-professed Sephora fan likes to have fun pushing the beauty boundaries “to see how far I can go,” experimenting with everything from ultra-smoky eyes (she’s a fan of Stila Smudge Pots) to her tattoos–including one on the inside of her lip that she keeps hush-hush! Wood credits her daring style to growing up with a “very artistic family” that encouraged her to be different. “I try and surround myself with people who just aren’t afraid to be who they are and aren’t going to judge me for doing anything I’m doing.” The redhead’s latest role as the face for Gucci’s Guilty scent gives her the platform to do just that. “I love [the] idea of the Gucci woman being this take no prisoners, full throttle, is going to do what she wants to do [woman],” she says. “I think you can be just as tough in a pair of heels if you’re in control of it.” Hear more from the star in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on stands now. – Hana Choi, reporting by Jackie Fields

I moisturize nelray every day. My body’s skin is dry, while my face’s skin has different concentrations of oiliness per area of skin. I use a face/neck moisturizer after washing my face. What’s extra nice about it is that it has a bit of sunscreen in it as well.
