Natalie Portman is one of the most recognisable faces in Hollywood, and this Oscar-winning, Harvard-educated actress is especially known for her understated glamour and ever-so-classic style. The mother of two and face of Miss Dior chats to us about how to get the perfect lip and why true beauty always comes from within:

Go-to lippie?

"It depends on the occasion, but I’m always comfortable in nudes for everyday life. I really like soft pinks, so Dior’s Double Rouge Miss Crush 288 is a personal favourite. And in the Rouge Liquid range, I love the Miss Satin 162."

Current playlist?

"A lot of Bach, Schubert, James Blake, Chance the Rapper and all my old hip-hop stuff, like A Tribe Called Quest."

Perfume ritual?

"I like to spritz it in the air and walk through it so the scent settles subtly."

Describe the new Miss Dior in three words:

"Sensual. Passionate. Rebellious."

Beauty philosophy?

"To drink tons of water and get a great night’s sleep. There is truly nothing better you can do for yourself as a beauty routine than give yourself rested, hydrated skin."

Lip care?

"Lucas' pawpaw ointment from Australia is a great product to keep your lips moisturised."

What is your favourite love story?

"My own with my husband."

Make-up routine?

"I like to keep it simple. I always start with sunscreen on my face and then wear a bit of foundation or make-up base, and maybe a light colour on my lips with a hint of mascara."

Beauty mantra?

"Beauty always starts on the inside. Someone who is loving, individual and passionate on the inside shines just as much on the outside."
