The actress and face of Clé de Peau Beauté on her go-to beauty products.

Everyday Essentials
Wake-up routine: “I like to have slow, gentle mornings. I’ll use a light cleanser and the Clé de Peau Beauté La Crème, which I use in the evening, too.”

Complexion savers: “If my skin feels like it really needs it—especially in cold weather—I use the Clé de Peau Beauté Firming Serum Supreme. A couple of times a week, I exfoliate with Caudalie Gentle Buffing Cream.”

SPF: “My favorite sunscreen is the La Roche-Posay Anthelios Mineral SPF 50 tinted sunscreen. It’s pretty light and doesn’t cause any skin problems for me.”

Mane musts: “A hairstylist on a film I worked on introduced me to Davines, and I love it. I use the Oi shampoo and conditioner, which make your hair feel really healthy.”

Signature scent: “I absolutely adore Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint Germain. I’ve been wearing it for years. It has a sort of unisex quality, and it’s not too sweet.”

Self-Care and Fitness
Stress relief: “Just being at home and chilling. I love to read. I’m reading the Elena Ferrante books right now, and they’re brilliant. The characters are great.”

Supplements: “Flaxseed oil for healthy skin, eyes, and nails. I also take vitamin D; there’s a serious lack of sun in London.”

Comfort food: “Salt-and-vinegar crisps. It’s the one thing I really miss about London when I’m away. They’re just not as good anywhere else.”

Healthy treat: “I love making banana-and-almond-milk smoothies, with a scoop of almond butter. I’m being very healthy at the moment, because I’m shooting a film and the character I’m playing is very physical. There’s a lot of stunt work and acrobatics, so I need to be in good shape.”

Bath time: “If I’m training and getting ready for a film, I’ll take a bath with Epsom salt to help relax my muscles at the end of the day.”

Workout regimen: “At the moment, I’m doing a combination of Pilates, cardio, and small weights three to five times a week. I don’t have a regular trainer, so my routine changes depending on the part I’m playing and what they want the character to look like. If I’m not doing anything for a film, I’ll just go for runs. And I love swimming and yoga.”

Transformational Makeup
Glam squad: “Mary Greenwell and Katey Denno for makeup; Leigh Keates and Cervando Maldonado for hair.”

Tricks of the trade: “I’ve learned everything I know through working with makeup artists, like putting blush on the highest bit of your cheekbones to give them lift, and brushing your eyebrows up to make them look fuller. Also, I’ve found that using my fingers to massage makeup into my skin helps wake up my face.”

Indispensable eye enhancer: “Black eyeliner. I’ve worn it for years. Right now, I’m using the Clé de Peau Beauté pen, because I wear contact lenses and need a liner that doesn’t smudge more than you’d want it to.”

Evening-bag staple: “Concealer. I put it under my eyes and on my little red nose. Clé de Peau Beauté is the queen of concealer. I actually first got to know the brand through seeing that little stick in various makeup artists’ bags. The coverage is excellent.”

Role play: “I just played Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the 1940s and ’50s, and using a strong lipstick really helped me find the character. She wore a very dark red, kind of femme fatale shade, and I think for her it was almost a weapon.”
