Eva Green says wearing lipstick helps her feel "comfortable".

The 35-year-old actress is known for her glamorous appearance and always brings out her inner femme fatale when she hits the red carpet. A major part of her look is sultry make-up and the stunning brunette reveals that she could never go au naturel with her pout.

"I'm a huge lipstick fan," she confided in the British edition of InStyle magazine. "It's the one thing I always wear. I can go out with very little mascara and just red lips and feel totally comfortable. YSL Beauty has beautiful strong, bright shades."

Just as Eva doesn't mix up her make-up look too much, she stays faithful to one fragrance. For many years she's used Santa Maria Novella's Melograno, even feeling it's become "a part of" her. When it comes to looking after her body, she sticks to moisturiser from Sisley.

But Eva isn't just stylish off screen; in action flick 300: Rise of an Empire she went gothic glam with kohl-smudged eyes and full battle gear. While she loved the look, Eva admits that some of her character's outfits weren't practical for her energetic scenes.

"I always try to take a hand in the costumes because you have to be comfortable," she previously explained to UK magazine ShortList.

"But my hair actually got caught in one of the outfits I wore. I was in the middle of this huge fight scene and had to go, 'Oh f**k, wait a second.'"
