Scarlett Johansson’s Beauty Tips

For those inspired by Johansson’s beauty, she shared some beauty tips with Telegraph UK. Her favorite red lipstick is Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Devil. “And it’s still my go-to. I still think it’s a look that will never go out of fashion,” she said.

Her daily routine for makeup includes concealer, mascara, blush, eyebrow pencil, a cream or powder eyeshadow and a lip conditioner. She loves mascara because it helps her look more awake and concealer for quick fixes but notes, “Full-face foundation is my standard for beauty.” Johansson learned these tips from her own experimenting, but thanks to her status as an A-lister, she got to learn some extra tips from her makeup artists.

“I’ve found that a lot of artists use a corrector pen to draw on the outside of the lip before applying lip color, so you can make your own shape and stop the color from spreading. It’s a really good tip for red lipstick, which I wear a lot.”

The beauty queen has always loved makeup since she was a child. “When I was a little girl, I used to sit by my mum’s make-up table and watch her apply it. I was always fascinated by how she transformed. She was my mum one minute, then she would turn into this glamorous lady the next. And I have nice memories about make-up from being a little girl.”

Johansson’s natural beauty and confidence has taken her to become one of Hollywood’s most beautiful women and most influential icons in the cosmetic industry. The mother of one was named the “Sexiest Women Alive” in 2006 and 2013 by Esquire, and Playboy dubbed her the “Sexiest Celebrity” in 2007. As of July 2016, Johansson is the highest-grossing actress in North America of all time, and tenth overall. Her films are making over $3.3 billion, and she is most famously known for her role as Black Widow in The Avengers film franchise.

With big blue eyes and naturally pouty lips, it’s no wonder the star is making red lipstick trends stay popular!
