Helen Mirren wore makeup every day during confinement
“I am a girl, I love, love get dressed.”
The coronavirus pandemic has not affected Helen Mirren’s makeup game.
In a recent interview with People, Mirren revealed that she remained red carpet ready for most of the day, even though she wasn’t going anywhere during the lockdown.
“Every day I put on makeup,” she said. “I didn’t do it for [husband] Taylor because Taylor never notices. He asks me if I’m wearing makeup or not and doesn’t care, but he sure doesn’t realize it. “
“Sometimes he’ll say in a pretty puzzled way, ‘Oh, you’re really nice,’” Mirren continued. “You just associate the fact that I’m beautiful with the fact that I just spent an hour doing makeup!”
“But I would wear makeup everyday and dress everyday because I love it,” she added.
Getting dolled up was a “good experience” for Mirren because she felt like she was “living [her] life properly.
She especially enjoyed returning to the red carpet for the recent F9 first.
“I have to say I love it,” Mirren exclaimed. “I love having the opportunity to wear amazingly beautiful clothes.”
“I appreciate the craft of sewing. I’m a girl, I love, I love to dress up, “she added.” And then I’m perfectly happy to give it my all at the end of the night and get back to my scruffy bohemian outfits. “
Mirren described her evening as “extraordinary” and a little “intimidating”.
“After spending a year and a half behind closed doors, I forgot what it looked like,” she said. “It was so much fun.”
