Scarlett Johansson: A Makeup Girlie-Girl
Scarlett Johansson, the star of the new movie, 'We Bought a Zoo,' has been doing the publicity rounds to bring attention to the flick. So, all eyes have been on the 27-year-old beauty.
If you think that Scar-Jo, as she's called by the media, hits the streets without a stitch of makeup on and dresses down, you would be so wrong. She recently told InStyle magazine this:
"I always like to put a little bit of makeup on," Scarlett says. "I’m not the kind of person that just slops around in sweatpants. I like to feel a little more together — you never know who you’re going to see out there!"
Of course, when you've got such stunning bone structure like Scarlett has, then a little makeup makes her beauty pop in a big way. And her favorite, go-to cosmetic is bold lipstick:
"My absolute must-have is a really rich and vibrant red lipstick", she tells InStyle. "I always keep red lipstick in my bag because I never know when I might show up to an event and be completely underdressed. I feel like red lipstick is the cure-all for everything.".
Another beauty tip from the blonde actress has to do with a jar of honey. It's simple, old-school, and a bit messy, but it works:
A good, old-fashioned honey facial. "I use Manuka honey," Scarlett reveals. "You just warm your face so that your pores are open (you can steam your face right after getting out of the shower), and then you just take a spoon and apply the honey directly to your face and leave it for 10 to 15 minutes."
The result? "It really adds an amazing glow and your skin is so soft afterwards. It pulls out the impurities."
We found a jar of Manuka Honey, on sale at drugstore.com.
Thanks for the great beauty tips, Scarlett Johansson!
