Lily Collins: I always carry lipstick

Lily Collins has learned to be "efficient" with her beauty products.

The 25-year-old actress is often busy with various projects and is a regular jet-setter to promote them. When choosing items to keep close to her during trips Lily keeps it minimal, but that isn't to say she leaves everything else behind.

"I love having everything with me, just in case, but with press tours, I've learned to be efficient," she told British magazine Look. "I'm sure I'll be a great mom, because I always have everything to hand. I bring tea bags and lots of lipsticks... I like being able to take my time when I pack."

"[I'd define beauty as] happiness and self-confidence."

Lily is currently the face of beauty giant Lancôme and wears the brand's Lip Lover gloss for its new campaign. She turns to the label's products when dolling herself up and has listed how she creates her recognisable natural finish.

"After a workout at the gym and a shower, I wash my face with a gentle exfoliating cleanser and apply Lancôme Hydra Zen moisturiser - my skin is rather dry," she revealed of her beauty secrets. "I keep make-up very simple - concealer on red areas, a light translucent compact powder, Lancôme Hypnôse mascara, a little blush, a touch of highlighter under my brows and some eyebrow gel."

She also revealed which latest lip product is her current favourite. The brunette beauty opts for a pink shade on a day-to-day basis.

"Shade 337 is my favourite as it goes with everything," she smiled. "I wasn't much of a lipgloss fan before, but this is more like a lipstick - it isn't gloopy."
