Lily James Talks Beauty, Brunch And Lily X Burberry
We caught up with girl of the moment Lily James to chat all things beauty, what makes her nervous and her saucy new Burberry campaign. Oooh-er!
Hi Lily! What’s your first beauty memory? There are pictures of me at about four years old after putting on all of my mum’s make-up while she was having a dinner. But what’s amazing is I actually kind of got it all in the right places, I mean it’s terrible, but it’s good. So I obviously always had an eye for make-up! Who’s your beauty icon? Julianne Moore – I love her. She’s so beautiful and I just love how she does her hair and make-up. She just always looks so sexy. What’s your go-to red carpet look? Smoky eyes and strong eyebrows. And your beauty must-haves? My Burberry Black is my signature scent, then for make-up I like a nude look, so always mascara, a contour pen, eyebrow definer and lip balm. My hair’s been coloured a lot, so I use a lot of hair treatments and masks. Best selfie tip? Pick a good filter and make them silly rather than serious. Which makes you more nervous: first day on set or first night on stage? Oh, first day on set! My first night playing Juliet [in Romeo And Juliet] on stage was the most terrifying night of my life. How do you relax? When I have time, I enjoy long baths and use Epsom salts, candles, etc. I often read or learn my lines in the bath and I also use yoga and meditation. What’s your favourite way to spend a day off work? Just not doing much. I enjoy going out for breakfast on a Sunday – l love a really nice brunch.

‘Whoever wears this scent is sensual and confident in her skin. I think we captured that with the shoot,’ says Lily
