It’s been a decade since the Oscar-winning actress, filmmaker and humanitarian starred in a beauty campaign. Now the face of Guerlain’s latest scent, Mon Guerlain, we sit down with Angelina Jolie as she shares her beauty secrets:

What are your favourite perfumes?
Angelina Jolie I don’t like perfumes that are too strong or sweet. They have to be scents I can wear every day and that my children like and associate with mum.

What products do you always have in your bag?
Lip balm and under-eye concealer

Favourite city for beauty finds?
Siem Reap and Battambang in Cambodia­—for their use of local oils. 

What do you love about dressing up for the red carpet?
The last one was in Cambodia with the children. I think the chaos of getting ready with them is my favourite.

Favourite lipstick shade?
Daily I wear natural but I do love a true red.


Who is your beauty inspiration?
My daughter Zahara. She has a natural elegance and grace and at the same time she is independent and knows her mind when it comes to beauty and fashion.
