Actress Jessica Chastain has been wowing us on the red carpet for some time and it seems she has also caught the eye of the folks over at YSL as she has just been named the face of Yves Saint Laurent’s new fragrance, Manifesto.

‘We were won over by the very subtle strength of Jessica Chastain, her solar charm, her free mind,” said Stephan Bezy, international general manager of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté at L’Oréal. “Jessica embodies the quintessence of Saint Laurent’s femininity, a woman of her day and age, independent, determined, never where you expect her to be.”

How does she pull it off? The alabaster-skinned red head is a devout vegan and yogi, but make-up artist Mary Greenwell also knows what beauty products it takes to achieve her stunning red-carpet looks.

Jessica gets her flawless complexion with the help of Suqqu primer, Chanel Perfection Lumière Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Makeup and Crème de la Mer concealer under the eyes.

For her old-school Hollywood glamour look at the Cannes premiere of ‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’: smoky black eyes using Bourjois Ombre Strech Eyeshadow in Glitter Black and lots of Tom Ford Beauty Extreme Mascara in Raven for thick, long lashes with Chanel Le Crayon Khol in Noir in the roots of the lashes. Chanel Espiegle blusher mixed with a bronzing powder called Soleil Tan de Chanel Moisturizing Bronzing Powder and lips painted with the classic Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in Gabrielle.

For her daytime look on Kelly! Live (top left): a mix of Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Epatant #84 and Chanel Ombre Essentielle Blazing Gold #407 eyeshadows to warm up the eye and layers of Chanel Sublime de Chanel Mascara in black to open it up. Guerlain Brow Pencil in Blonde to fill in the brows, Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Espiegle, and for the lips, Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Empreinte lined with Bobbi Brown Lip liner in Ballet Pink.
