Actress Lily James was spotted by allbeauty in this month’s Marie Claire, talking about her beauty favourites.
Actress Lily James, currently starring in Romeo and Juliet, is best known for TV dramas Downton Abbey and War and Peace; her beauty faves were spotted by allbeauty in the October 2016 edition of Marie Claire magazine.
As a teenager Lily suffered from serious acne (we were surprised too!) These days she likes to take care of her skin with Elemis Marine Cream and Elemis Toner. Although Marine Cream is primarily an anti-ageing treatment, it does provide hydration and supports collagen. Both great news for anyone dealing with acne scarring!
Although Lily wears My Burberry Black (coming soon to allbeauty.com) the classic My Burberry Eau de Toilette isn’t a world away in scent. The fragrance contains notes of sweet pea, rose, freesia and patchouli. It’s described as “a London garden after rain” – how lovely!!
Daily sunblock is essential, even in winter, to prevent premature ageing, sunspots and skin damage. Lily is a fan of Clinique City Block which is an oil-free formula for daily urban use. Perfect for on-the-go use and easy to pop in a bag.
Not a natural blonde, Lily’s suffered terrible hair damage from years of bleaching. Hardly surprising that she looks to products like Kérastase Elixir Ultime to restore the hair and shield it from external aggressors.
To tone her skin, Lily likes to use Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner
This alcohol-free toner is suitable for delicate, sensitive skin and can even be used as a soothing eye treatment when applied to cotton buds.
Lily is also a fan of scented candles – we think she’d love the range by bespoke parfumiers Penhaligon’s! Our favourite is this Neroli candle – it’s a luxury splurge but just divine.
You can see Lily in the October 2016 edition of Marie Claire magazine, on-sale at time of writing.
