Riley Keough: 'Fragrance has to fit the mood'

Mad Max: Fury Road star Riley Keough keeps her make-up natural when she's wearing a glitzy dress.

Actress Riley Keough matches her perfume to the location, favouring "hippie" smells when she's in Hawaii.

The Mad Max: Fury Road actress always looks gorgeous on the red carpet, most recently stunning in a sparkly silver vintage Norell dress at UNICEF's Snowflake Ball. Just as she likes to mix up her outfits, the film star enjoys playing with perfume.

"My perfume is constantly changing. It's not so much that I get bored, as I just really feel like certain scents are better for different occasions," she explained to Into The Gloss. "I spend a lot of time in Hawaii, so when I’m there I like more natural, floral, hippie kinds of smells. Then when I go out, I like something more elegant, fancy... like Norell. To me, it smells like what a classic movie star would smell like, but it’s a little bit younger."

Riley, 26, prefers an oil scent over one you spritz, as she argues it sinks to the skin more easily. In the same way the star likes to mix up her fragrances, she also enjoys tailoring her make-up to her mood.

"My make-up always depends on what I'm wearing," she revealed. "Tonight, it's a sparkly dress, so I'm not going to go HAM with my makeup, y'know? I prefer to look natural usually, not do anything too wild. (Hung Vanngo) is doing my make-up tonight and he's so good at that natural, sexy look without going overboard."

Riley also revealed her beauty indulgence, admitting to spending big on skincare.

"I just started seeing Shani Darden (aesthetician) after a friend recommended her to me," Riley added. "She has this retinol called Reform that I use at night before I go to bed, and it is so good."
