Kate Winslet: I keep make-up simple

Kate Winslet's skin regime "changes all the time."

The 36-year-old actress does not have a rigid approach to skincare. Kate changes what she applies to her face depending on the weather and how she may be feeling any given day.

"Well my skincare routine, as you get older, I think it has to change all the time," she told "Based on the seasons, based on whether I've had enough sleep or not."

For quick touch-ups when she's on the go, Kate relies on two products specifically to keep her face looking fresh.

"Makeup-wise, I mean, there are two products that I couldn't live without at the moment: one of them is [Lancôme] Hypnose mascara and the other is By Terry Baume de Rose [lip balm]," Kate detailed. "I'm just addicted to it and I have been for about five years. I just love it, in the tub not the gloss tube."

Kate prefers lighter make-up.

Overdramatic or heavily applied looks do not appeal to her, onscreen or in real life.

"[In my 2011 miniseries Mildred Pierce] we tried not to have anything be too fussy or overdone," she explained.

"Especially when you're shooting on film these days, the resolution is so high that you can really see if an actor is wearing a lot of makeup and that type of thing can become too distracting actually."
