Scarlett Johansson is happy to talk makeup routine with an interviewer, after weeks in the news over leaked photos from her cell phone. She is the face of Dolce & Gabbana's makeup line, and the Italian fashion house does not sell its products in drugstores, but she is willing to share with Hollywood Life that she does not wear pricey makeup all the time. "I have sensitive skin, so I use actually just Cetaphil face wash and Clarins moisturizer," says the actress. When Scarlett Johansson gets down to basics, she goes for products anyone can own.
Sometimes during the day, Scarlett Johansson reveals, she barely wears any makeup at all. That's by celeb standards, of course, because she includes concealer, blush, eyeliner, mascara and lipstick in her "almost nothing" list. And she knows how to take care, because she admits she has been using makeup since she was 13.
"My mom was very glamorous. I used to sit at her vanity and use her makeup Â— I know a lot of moms, they don't really like their daughters to wear a lot of makeup. My mom was always very encouraging, she used to take me shopping so I learned a lot of about makeup application from her actually."
The lessons must have stuck, because Scarlett Johansson certainly knows how to look her best. But her signature bright red lipstick? That's Dolce & Gabbana. One favorite is a color called Infatuation. Ah-h-h, luxury.
