Natalie Portman : "Rouge Dior"

Take a look @ Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman ("Black Swan") as the face of  Dior's recently launched "Rouge Dior" campaign, in a new video directed by Gordon von Steiner in the streets of Paris:

Portman takes center stage in the film/print campaign for one of the 50 new 'Rouge Dior' shades re-envisioned by creative/image director of 'Dior Makeup', Peter Philips who applies lipstick to the actress.

"I’ve been working with Peter for years, and it’s so great to have him on board at Dior reinventing classic Dior lipstick shades," said Portman. "He is a true artist and a wonderful person."

"The first time I probably wore makeup was when I was (playing 'Mathilda') in 'Léon: The Professional '. 

"The makeup artist used all natural things — like beet juice mixed with rosewater for my lips and cheeks, because she didn’t want to put makeup on a kid. Using lipstick as a blush – it’s a great trick when you want a different color and fresh shine on your cheeks.

"In 'Star Wars', when they made the 'Kabuki' lip on me, I understood the aesthetic they were going for with the entire character from that lip.

"When I'm not working, I like to keep things simple and less-is-more. I use minimal coverage, apply a primer and try to wear more neutral tones...

"...because I want to allow my skin to breathe when it can. I also use sunscreen every day...

"Ultimately, the best beauty routine is a good night’s sleep and plenty of water.... Rested, hydrated skin always looks best..."
