When we caught up with Thandie Newton last week to talk about her charity work with (RED), the conversation eventually worked it's way around to beauty. Because the Grazia Daily member who did the interview would probably sleep-talk about beauty. She told us which brands are her new favourites, and those she's been using for years. Click through the gallery to see her picks and read why she loves them so much...
Thandie Newton Reveals Her 8 Beauty Must-Haves
'Antonia Burrell has this cleansing powder which foams into this amazing clay paste. She also has a serum called Forest Dew Skin Conditioner that I love. No nasties or petrochemicals in there.'
'I wrote this piece about high street beauty (on website Thandiekay.com), because there’s so much we don’t know about why these darker shades aren’t available. Often, the brands manufacture the colours, but women don’t expect to find these shades on the high street so they don’t sell and then they get taken off the shelf. It’s a vicious cycle! I’ve always loved Bobbi Brown for makeup. '
'I also love Ilia, which is a Canadian brand. These lip colours are so much more natural, which is great because you always end up eating them, and lipsticks aren’t edible! These ones are.'
'I love beautyMART, too. Millie Kendall (co-founder) is a genius.'
'The NUDE Perfect Cleanse Nourishing Cleansing Oil (£28.00, Space NK) is so great, but I love the whole brand. I do try and look for organic and natural when I can.'
'I also love Ila – it’s all organic and made in the UK. The bath salts are fab. My husband always replenishes them for me all the time!'
'I do love a bubble bath! I love them all, but I especially love Ortigia on Marylebone High Street. The ‘India’ scent is so heavenly, too.'
'Lollia from the US are amazing, as well'
