The South Korean model-turned-ac­tress shares a few of her beauty secrets from on and off the set

There’s some­thing about Clau­dia that makes her a shoo-in for ac­tion roles. Right after her film de­but in the 2015 chart-top­per Avengers: Age of Ul­tron, Clau­dia landed the role of war­rior princess Khutu­lun in Net­flix’s Marco Polo. Since start­ing work on the show, she has been re­ally into ju-jitsu. “I love the feel­ing of en­hanc­ing my con­cen­tra­tion and phys­i­cal strength,” she says. The Seoul na­tive, who is the lat­est face of Bobbi Brown, rec­om­mends vis­it­ing her city for amaz­ing hair and nail treat­ments.

“I LOVE HIGH­LIGHT­ING MY LIPS WITH COLOUR. I FEEL IN­STANTLY RE­FRESHED AND MY SKIN LOOKS BRIGHTER”

Your best beauty trick? To use only bot­tled wa­ter on my face—es­pe­cially when I’m trav­el­ling— to avoid any skin ir­ri­ta­tion.

Favourite city for beauty finds? Seoul re­ally has amaz­ing sa­lons and spas. I’ve been a long-time client at Jenny House, the Primo branch, for hair treat­ments with stylist Sein Cha.

What is your guilty plea­sure? I love dark choco­late. I like to mix cof­fee beans and 100 per cent dark choco­late into my pro­tein shakes.

What is the most un­der­rated beauty prod­uct and why? Sheet face masks. I love them. They’re so con­ve­nient for trav­el­ling and you can see the re­sults in­stantly.

Go-to lip­stick shade? I’m of­ten into soft sands and corals, but some­times I’m in the mood for some­thing more fun, like a bright red or pur­ple lip.

Top beauty ad­vice? One of the many use­ful things my mum taught me was to be aware of my skin tone and to wear the right make-up for it. She al­ways em­pha­sised the ba­sics—hy­dra­tion and lay­er­ing mois­turis­ers, which cre­ates glossy, healthy-look­ing skin just like hers.
