In this Harper’s Bazaar UK video, we catch up with British fashion and beauty icon Alexa Chung, who takes us through the secrets of her beauty bag, revealing which products keep her going through her glamorous day.

And her glossiest takeaway? Unsurprisingly, that letterbox shade of crimson she loves so well.

“A red lipstick is an essential,” Chung says, as “it makes you look less tired and like you have actually made an effort, when it is actually a really easy thing to apply.”
