From playing Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby, to her roles in hit films such as Never Let Me Go, Drive and An Education, Carey Mulligan knows the power of beauty to help an actor transform into character. Her latest role in the Emerald Fennell-directed Promising Young Woman uses the power of make-up and transformation to particularly great effect.
In our exclusive video, Mulligan opens up her beauty bag to share the products she uses on a daily basis – including the Barbara Sturm serum she swears by, the concealer she uses “on the bad bits”, the device that makes lines and wrinkles “go away like magic”, and the primer that makes “everything look better”.
“I think my views on beauty have changed just getting older,” she tells us. “I feel like the idealised idea of beauty – everything we’re fed in the media and photo shoots and all these things that are massively retouched – all of that stuff can be massively intimidating when you’re younger. And then when you get a bit older you realise that it truly is skin deep, and the majority of people who say they’re just drinking a lot of water are actually having a lot of cosmetic surgery. It just makes you chill a bit and relax.”
