Cate Blanchett says Australian face oil is the "home secret" behind her flawless dewy face.

The Australian actress is known for her immaculate porcelain-like skin.

She revealed that a cream containing Emu Oil, a soothing and very moisturising ingredient from her native country, is her essential beauty product.

"When I'm in duty free, I always stock up on Emu Oil Well Emu Skin Cream," Cate revealed to the British edition of Elle magazine. "Being an Aussie, it's my home secret."

Cate rated products by luxury beauty brand SK-II as her make-up bag musts. The 43-year-old says her busy schedule, which requires international travel promoting her movies, can take its toll on her skin. Cate's two favourite items are the SK-II eye mask and revival essence, which serve to perk up and protect her famous face.

"The thing that I will not leave the house without is LXP Ultimate Revival Essence [by SK-II]. It hydrates and makes skin more resilient to the environment - a must when I'm travelling or tired," Cate shared. "Before a premiere or an event, I use SK-II Signs Eye Mask for an instant wake-up call."

In The Hobbit movie trilogy Cate stars as ethereal beauty Galadriel. In real life Cate also has another-worldly appearance which she maintains by sporting a minimal amount of make-up. To get her natural look, she uses a concealor by Giorgio Armani and a lipstick by Tom Ford as the two essentials she carries with her.

"Tom Ford's Pink Dusk is my favourite lip colour for day; it has a really creamy texture," Cate finished.
