Keira Knightley "tried something new" with red lipstick at the London premiere of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

The British actress looked chic and sophisticated as she walked the red carpet in Leicester Square to promote her new film earlier this week.

Make-up artist Lisa Eldridge created the perfect finish for Keira using all Chanel products. As the 28-year-old star was wearing a simple dress Lisa opted for a garish shade to be worn on Keira's lips.

"Keira wore a chic, classic black dress with black accessories, and we both agreed that a pop of colour on the lips would really enhance the look," she explained to

"Keira doesn't normally wear a hot lip colour when she is on the red carpet, so it was fun to try something new. Keira looked beautifully sophisticated and glamorous and the flash of red lip colour was a great statement without being too over the top. And she has incredible lips so why not!"

Lisa revealed the exact products she used, which were Le Crayon Lèvres in Rouge and pillar box red Rouge Allure lipstick in Incandescent.

Keira's skin always looks flawless at events and this premiere was no exception. To create the flawless, dewy finish Lisa turned to a particular foundation.

"I applied Perfection Lumière Beige 20 to give the skin a lovely glow," she added. She then applied Joue Contraste blush in Rose Initiale onto Keira's cheeks.

Keira is a fan of Chanel's beauty products and dresses and i brand ambassador for the fashion house. She also let herself be finished with them for the film's LA premiere earlier this month.
