Gemma Chan uses these beauty products to prep her skin

If you've ever been filled with envy after seeing a photo of Gemma Chan, you're not alone. The British beauty always nails her red carpet looks, and she was kind enough to shed some light on her standard beauty routine for a night out. For Vogue's YouTube channel, Chan discussed the step-by-step process she adheres to when applying her makeup, and it's much simpler than you might think.

To start, Chan preps her skin with a L'Oreal hyaluronic acid serum. Next, she gently applies a caffeine eye cream under each eye to brighten her skin and reduce any residual puffiness. Chan swears by her "eyebrator," which is the funny nickname her "Eternals" co-star Richard Madden uses for the ​​FOREO IRIS Illuminating Eye Massager he recommended to Chan (via Youtube). Essentially, the eye massager "mimics the tapping used in traditional Asian skincare," as Chan explained to Women's Health.

Once her under-eye area is taken care of, Chan uses a roller on her neck and face, and then applies The Cream by Augustinus Bader to her entire face if she's attending an evening event. After her face is prepped, Chan segues into her simple beauty routine, which includes her stunning smudge-proof red lipstick. Keep reading to find out how to achieve this look yourself!

Gemma Chan's foolproof tips for smudge-free red lipstick

According to the Youtube video, after Gemma Chan preps her skin, she applies a Laneige lip mask, which she says is essential if you're going to apply a bold lip color before heading out the door. 

Once Chan has applied her favorite face products, she transitions into the eye makeup portion of her look. For her eyes, she uses light shades of eyeshadow, which she applies with a fluffy brush to blend the colors together naturally. In lieu of a traditional black eyeliner, Chan opts for a dark brown as it's less dramatic and much softer, which appeals to her signature style. She really luxuriates in each step of her beauty routine, as she finds the process calming.

When speaking to Women's Health, Chan said, "It can really lift your mood to put on a bright lip color or a bit of eyeliner," which is why she often goes for a bold lip. Instead of using a red lip liner, Chan goes for a softer berry shade like Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk Lip Liner. After applying lip liner, Chan adds a layer of L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in the color Maison Marais, which is a vibrant shade of red.

After the lipstick has been applied, Chan completes her smudge-proof look by using a fluffy eyeshadow brush to buff out the color across her lips. This softens the lines and makes the color appear much more subtle. Plus, it helps eliminate smudging, which sounds like a win to us!
