“There’s no morning routine without my Olehenriksen Dewtopia,” she says, which she applies the night before. “I have not had a pimple in a year and a half since using this – even period pimples.”

She removes traces in the morning with a Cetaphil cleanser and applies a veil of Vaseline to her lips and Sienna Naturals Daily Elixir Hair & Scalp Oil to her scalp.

She moves onto her go-to makeup products, starting with Shiseido’s foundation, NARS concealer and Fenty Beauty loose powder.

She stops to discuss director Gerwig approaching her to play President Barbie in the film. “It wasn’t like this big thing that: ‘oh it’s a Black female president’, it was just that in Barbieland, the president can be Black and is Black – and that’s just what it is.”

She then applies eyebrow gel from Dime Beauty, liquid liner from Lorac and then opts for a vibrant purple blush from Danessa Myricks Beauty.

To finish up she pairs MAC’s lip liner in Chestnut with Sigma Beauty gloss to create a bronzed look and spritzes herself with Chanel N°5 Eau Première Spray.
