Jessica Chastain: Red lips are chic
Jessica Chastain

Jessica Chastain will don a red lip if she wants "to add a chic element" to her minimalist look.

The Hollywood actress’ off-duty image is very different to the glamorous one she presents at work.

The stunning redhead has a low-key beauty regime, opting for a slick of red lipstick when she wants to transform herself.

"My look is very minimal. I don't blow-dry my hair, I let it air-dry and apply a little lip balm, concealer and mascara," Jessica revealed to InStyle magazine. "If I want to add a chic element, I'll go for a red lip. I love the feminine look of a black liner and a red lip - it's very Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth. It's my current favourite look."

The 35-year-old is currently the muse of the new Yves Saint Laurent fragrance Manifesto. Jessica uses perfume to help her get into the role she is playing, whether it is a Broadway production or a big scale movie such as Lawless.

"I always find perfume for the character I'm playing, to help me build an emotional connection," Jessica explained. "The second I put it on, I really get into the role."
