Dame Helen Mirren’s Complete Skin Care Regimen | Entertainment
Dame Helen Mirren “always” goes above and beyond her neck with her skincare routine.
The 76-year-old actress rarely wears low-cut outfits these days, but on the occasions she does, she’s confident any exposed skin is in good shape thanks to her usual regimen.
Referring to the Elie Saab blue velvet dress she wore at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018, she said: “With that blue dress at Cannes in 2018, I decided I had had enough of ruffles and sequins. and I didn’t want sparkly that year – I just wanted something sculpted and tailored, and I loved the slightly medieval feel of the dress.
“It was low cut, so my makeup artist did my makeup up to my neck.
“I always take my skincare down to the décolleté, even though I don’t tend to be so cleavage anymore.”
The ‘Red’ actress never takes too long to choose her outfit for a big event because she doesn’t like to “fuss.”
She told Telegraph magazine: “When it comes to the outfit I choose for an event, I’m very quick. I work with a stylist or a fashion designer and see what they have and what they can lend me. And I can see what will work immediately. I’m not going to bother.”
Helen is never picky about her makeup either, as she trusts the “amazing” makeup artists who help her get ready for the red carpet.
She said: “I’m very free with my makeup – I work with amazing makeup artists, so I let them do whatever inspires them.
“For that L’Oréal Paris show last year, which was right in front of the Eiffel Tower, makeup artist Val Garland just said, ‘I want to do something really, really extreme.’
“People’s reaction to the thick, heavy eyeliner was a mix of amazement and a tinge of horror, which is a good reaction as far as I’m concerned. I thought it was so much fun And of course I had an amazing outfit on so it all worked out The whole look was very bada**.
