Nominated for her role in the dramatic film 'Marriage Story' at the Golden Globes 2020, Scarlett Johansson looked red-carpet ready thanks to celebrity makeup artist, Frankie Boyd. Boyd revealed the secret to Scarlett's enviable glow lay in the skincare must-haves he used to prep her skin from The Inkey List. Boyd prepped the skin first with the Hyaluronic Acid before applying the Caffeine Eye Cream. Then, he massaged the List Hemp into skin for a hydration hit to prep the skin for makeup. Coming in at under £10 a pot, it's all worth a try, right?

Blow dry hair with round brush to prep the foundation of the style. Once dry, I created a side part – starting from the top I used 1.5 inch curling iron. I pinned the curls and let them cool for 10 minutes. I brushed the curls out with a multi-bristle brush until the curls were opened up. To finish, I sprayed the FEKKAI Full Blown Volume Texturizing Spray and a bit of Kenra Artformation Spray hairspray for long lasting voluminous curls.'
