Scarlett Johansson: Red lipstick is a must

Scarlett Johansson says red lipstick is the "cure-all for everything".

The Hollywood actress is famed for her alluring beauty, and regularly wows with her show-stopping red carpet looks. Scarlett loves donning statement red lips, and says the look is her signature one.

"My absolute must-have is a really rich and vibrant red lipstick. I always keep red lipstick in my bag because I never know when I might show up to an event and be completely underdressed. I feel like red lipstick is the cure-all for everything," she told

"A really good mascara is a key staple for me, too. The Secret Eyes Mascara in Black from Dolce & Gabbana creates the most flirty and glamorous lashes. I find that super-long lashes really widen the eyes and make them sparkle, and I really haven't found another mascara that measures up to this one. A dark eyeliner is another must-have in my make-up bag.

"Obviously it's nice to get colour without having to sit out in the sun and ruin your skin, so I also use bronzer - I even use it on my eyelids at times!"

Scarlett likes to look her best at all times. The 27-year-old beauty prefers to be camera-ready, and applies make-up before stepping out in front of photographers.

"I always like to put a little bit of makeup on. I'm not the kind of person that just slops around in sweatpants. I like to feel a little more together - you never know who you're going to see out there!" she exclaimed.

"If I'm just going to the grocery store I would throw on a little concealer, a little mascara. I wear foundation if I know I'm going to be photographed, but day to day I don't wear [it]."
