The actress, muse of L’Oréal Professionnel, shares with us her indispensable treatments and make-up. And reveals to us her vegetarian advices.
What time do you wake up in the morning?
6:30am or 7am. I have a clock in my head. I never sleep in late, this is my Swedish side.
Do you go out without make-up on?
Yes, most of the time. I make little effort in everyday life, I prefer to play the Invisible Woman and let my skin breathe. Maybe that’s why I make a big fuss about it on the red carpet, with extreme looks.
Is sport a part of your life?
Every day when I wake up, I go for a run or do at least 20 minutes of elliptical machine. It’s essential for my balance.
What are the beauty products that you can’t live without?
The Pro Fiber shampoo and the Re-Charge monodose by L’Oréal Professionnel that help strengthen my hair over time. The very moisturising Magic Cream by Charlotte Tilbury. The skincare products and cosmetics by that make-up artist are extraordinary and innovative. And the lipstick Lady Danger by Mac, an orange-red that highlights the eyes and is enough when we want to turn heads without putting make-up on other parts of the face.
What perspective did your mother bring to your physical appearance?
That of a mama bear, concerned for my happiness and my health. I always saw her put lots of moisturising cream on. She taught me the importance of staying hydrated, including drinking water.

As I promised… I’ve managed to steal some time for talking also with Eva Green! I’ve been really lucky, you must believe me because that night L’Oréal organized a very exclusive party – in which I participated – at the Grand Palais of Paris. The dinner, the location, the atmosphere… How can I describe them to you without being ‘repetitive’ or ‘exaggerate’? Delicious food, real artworks made by Michelin award-winning Chefs, the Salon was set up perfectly creating the ‘magic’ that only L’Oréal is able to create… See for yourself the pictures because they speak for themselves! But… are you curious to know what the beautiful Eva answered to me? I satisfied you immediately!
How important is your hair for your image and your job?
My hair is my job. I love strong looks and I like trying out new make-up… It’s almost a game for me!
What’s your favourite style?
I like to have the hair in one side and If I had to choose a style in particular… well, the important thing is that I can see the face very well and the hair has to have soft waves.
How must be the ideal Hairstylist for you? It makes any difference if it’s male or female?
That’s an interesting question because there’s such many men and women hairstylists! When I was making a film I was used to work with women hairstylists because in my opinion among women there’s an incredible harmony! But it’s different choosing a look for a role rather than for a campaign. I love the hairstylists that are able to dare, man or woman at this point doesn’t make any difference.
Is there a particular hairstyle that you can’t adopt?
Oh wow…! Yes, sure! There’s one! I would like to cut my hair really short or dye it blonde or blue but I think I’m not going to have a future as a model anymore!
What’s your daily beauty routine?
I tell you immediately that I would like to have the chance to not wash my hair… For me it’s a waste of time but in the real life I wash it every two days. I’m really careful to use specific treatments and I try to avoid using the drier too much!
Do you like ‘selfie’?
But if I tell you that I discovered them three days ago, do you believe me? The first time a person asked me to take a selfie, I was almost terrified!
Eva Green feels more like herself when she’s ditched her natural hair colour.
The 34-year-old actress is a natural blonde, but usually sports much darker tresses. That’s been the way for many years, with Eva explaining she feels brunette suits her personality much better, so has stuck with in since first reaching for the dye at 15.
“I wanted to change something. You know, like when you go through your teenage years. I hated school. I was a good student, but I just wanted to breathe in something new,” she told WWD. “I was in awe of a friend of my mum, who had dark hair. She was quite weird, beautiful. I was like, ‘Oh wow, I’ll go to the hairdresser and try that.’ So I went there, I dyed my hair blue-black and came back home. It took me a while to get used to it, and then I actually really liked it. I felt more like myself. It’s weird.”
Eva was talking as part of her role as L’Oréal Professionnel international spokesperson. The brand is releasing a new range called Pro Fiber, which aims to help repair damaged hair.
It’s something the star can get on board with because she’s changed her look a lot for roles, including sporting red tresses and experimenting with fringes.
“Hair defines your character, your state of mind. At the moment I’m in a [Tim] Burton film, and it took weeks and weeks to find the right hairdo. It’s kind of a weird character. Her name is Miss Peregrine, so there is a bit of a birdlike hairdo in her. It helps you to create the character when you find the hairdo. It’s also like a costume,” she said.
The actress was also quizzed on her beauty secrets and was happy to let a couple slip. Unfortunately, there is no quick route to her slim physique and porcelain skin – it’s all about being careful.
“Sun cream, protection, food — what we eat is the most important: lots of green vegetables, raw vegetables, organic. Everything has to be organic,” she said.
The best way to shake things up.
New York, around 1872. Campari and the shaker (patented in the Big Apple in that year) were invented at almost the same time and soon became a twosome. Perhaps this is why together they create something special.

Eva Green loves extreme shades when it comes to her hair.
The former Bond girl is known for her striking looks and raven hair. Her natural colour is actually dark blonde which the 35-year-old has always found dull so she likes to experiment – but has had some mishaps along the way.
“I’ve dyed my hair black since I was 15. One of my mum’s friends had very dark hair and blue eyes and I just thought, ‘OK, I have to try it!'” she told British InStyle. “I felt more like myself after I made the colour change. I love extreme shades – I’ve been dark blue, a dark brown and even red at one point. That was a challenging shade because it eventually went green!”
One colour Eva would love to try is bright blonde. But just like Kim Kardashian, who had to give up her platinum locks after only a few weeks earlier this year, the actress thinks it would be too much strain on her tresses.
“I’ve done movies with a blonde wig and I’d love to go blonde. But colourists say it would destroy my hair because of how much I’d have to bleach it,” she explained. “My hair got very damaged because it’s super straight and I always use tongs to give it texture. I’ve just had the new L’Oréal Professionel Pro Fibre Revive in-salon treatment – it makes your hair shiny and healthy.”
Eva likes to be experimental when it comes to her make-up looks too, although it wasn’t always the case.
“I was shy until I was 16 and started at the American School of Paris. It was a chance to be a new me,” she said. “I had new black hair and would match my eyeshadow with my clothes so I’d wear purple or green. It was very theatrical.”

Turin, 1931. It is said that this drink got its name from one of its original components, a spirit scented with white rose (“rosa bianca” in Italian). It was created in the restaurant where members of the Futurist art movement used to meet, becoming one of their official drinks.

Woman of mystery Eva Green, who stars in a major hair campaign for L’Oréal, shares her secrets
With her inky cascading over pale shoulders, Eva Green—famous for her role as James Bond’s one true love Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale—is becoming the go-to leading lady for all things brooding. Early next year, she’ll play the title character in macabre master Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children; next May she returns as the demon-tormented Vanessa Ives in Penny Dreadful’s third season. And now, L’Oréal Professionnel has tapped the French actress as its spokesperson for a new intensive hair treatment range. “It’s a revolution,” she says, wearing a long black dress, obsidian nail polish and smudgy kohl eyeshadow during the launch at the Le Meurice hotel in Paris. “It takes your hair from f-cked up to beautiful, strong, healthy.” The taxidermy-collecting star fits into Burton’s quirky world quite honestly. Unafraid of ghosts and ghouls, here’s what really causes her fright: “Not being loved…being rejected,” she says, revealing a tender truth beneath the dark facade.
Green’s Gothic Beauty Tips
Go Deep: “As a teenager, I was dark blonde. I was going through a shy phase, and I wanted to change something. My mum’s friend had black hair, and I decided to try it. I feel now that it’s more me.”
Do Blood Red: “I love M.A.C Lady Danger lipstick for all occasions. The matte finish lasts for hours.”
Shun the Sun: “I never go out without an SPF of at least 30. It’s the key to dodging aging.”
Resurrect damaged hair with the latest regenerating treatment
After 15 years of research, L’Oréal Professionnel has finally solved the beauty world’s mane dilemma: how to make a pricey reparative salon treatment last beyond your next wash. Pro Fiber’s molecular mix, dubbed APTYL 100, rebuilds frayed strands and then seals itself inside hair with a protective film. After your initial spa-style pampering using one of three hair-care systems (Revive, Restore or Reconstruct), a for-pros-only dose of the juiced-up activator locks in smoothness for up to four washes. An at-home five-piece range includes a booster that recharges results for another four-wash cycle, with lustre that lasts six weeks—until your next appointment.
