Angelina Jolie Gets Honest About Aging & Using Makeup

Angelina Jolie Gets Honest About Aging & Using Makeup

Angelina Jolie is featured in InStyle‘s April 2018 issue, out now.

Here’s what the 42-year-old actress had to say…

On expressing herself during her youth: “I’m sure I had my moments when I was little where I would put makeup all over my face, but I was a bit of a tomboy. And then I was a bit of a punk. Nowadays it’s very popular to dye your hair blue, for example. In my day you bleached it and used a Sharpie [for color].”

On needing to use makeup sparingly: “I have very full, big features, so if I did everything, I’d look a bit like a clown. It’d be just…a lot.”

On aging: “I also see myself aging, and I love it because it means I’m alive—I’m living and getting older. Don’t love having a random dark spot from a pregnancy, sure. I see my flaws. But what I see that I like isn’t about a structure or an appearance. It’s more that I see my family in my face. I see my age.”

    My favorite part of the interview is when she said:

    “….Beauty—everybody has a different opinion about what that is. Intellect is the most beautiful. When you see somebody who has a mind on fire, that’s sexy. A person who is empathetic and thoughtful and passionate — there’s nothing more attractive than that. There’s nothing you could wear or put on your face to cover up if your mind is blank and your heart is dark…..”

    Angelina Jolie Once Colored Her Hair with a Sharpie

    On a chilly January evening, Angelina Jolie nestles into a couch inside the highly fragrant Guerlain boutique on Paris’s Champs-Élysées. We’re meeting to toast the launch of Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale, for which she is the face. Jolie’s face, apart from softly smoked eyes, looks natural. “We’re all pretty natural,” she says of her family. She takes her time as she discusses her makeup skills (they’re good, but daughter Zahara is more the enthusiast), her skin (cared for by a dermatologist since she was 11), and her views on what it’s like to age when you’re known as one of the world’s most beautiful women.

    ANGELIQUE SERRANO Mar 15, 2018 @ 9:00 am

    How beauty-aware were you growing up? Did you experiment with your hair and makeup?

    I’m sure I had my moments when I was little where I would put makeup all over my face, but I was a bit of a tomboy. And then I was a bit of a punk. Nowadays it’s very popular to dye your hair blue, for example. In my day you bleached it and used a Sharpie [for color].

    You did that?

    Yeah! I suppose my early memories were more as a creative person—and then early on as an actor. It’s a mask; it’s a part of creating a character. I’ve never gone to a girlfriend’s house and played makeup. I’m not one of those women who say, “Hey, let’s have a night and do each other’s hair.” I’ve never been that, but I find that really sweet. I buy a lot, especially for Z [Zahara]. She went through a period of trying different things, but she’s pretty natural. I remember she had a girlfriend over one night, and they said they were going to do dress-up and did I have any makeup?

    What did you say?

    I gave them my makeup, but I wear one color red, and I have black eyeliner and mascara—I have the most boring makeup kit. And my daughter and I are different shades of brown. I now have a backup kit in case anybody wants to play.

    Are you handy with a liquid liner? Can you get yourself event-ready in a pinch?

    Oh, yeah, because I don’t want to have to depend on a makeup artist. I’m much more comfortable with just a little concealer for my dark circles. That’s my main thing.

    Is there a feature of yours that you like to play up most?

    It really depends. I do either dark eyes or red lips. I have very full, big features, so if I did everything, I’d look a bit like a clown. It’d be just… a lot.

    Mathieu César for Guerlain

    How did you first discover Guerlain?

    My mother [Marcheline Bertrand] wore very little makeup. But she had a few items for a special event or holiday, and they were always Guerlain. There were little scents and powders, and I would occasionally mess with them. I remember thinking, “That’s not the everyday stuff. That’s from Paris!”

    Do you wear fragrance?

    [When I’ve tried] on a perfume just for fun, my children have gotten upset. [They’d say,] “It doesn’t smell like you.”

    video in link – Angelina Jolie’s Style Evolution

    Do you have a signature scent?

    I wear Mon Guerlain. Before that I wore a different scent that was very random, but it had similar notes. As I was making this decision [to be the face of Mon Guerlain], I tested it with the kids. They recognized enough of it, and they liked it. I wear it, and Zahara wears it. I’m a terrible liar, so I couldn’t promote something I didn’t actually like.

    Guerlain Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale ($94/1.6 fl. oz.; sephora.com).

    I know this question will amuse you given your schedule, but how do you like to indulge and pamper yourself when you find the time?

    [That’s] pretty funny. I’m that person saying “Can you not all be talking to me while I’m in the shower? Can you just not open the door at least? Let me finish and then I’ll get out. Give me a second.” “Give me a second” is the thing. I think most mothers say that all the time. Which now I can’t because my kids kind of go, “One. I gave you a second.”

    OK, you have one minute all your own: How do you take care of yourself?

    I’ve had the same dermatologist since I was 11; her name is Rhonda Rand. It’s who my mother brought me to when I was little with my first scar. To have somebody who is very encouraging of being as natural as possible has really helped me, I think. When I got pregnant, I had darker areas [on my face] that got darker. So I do IPL [intense pulsed light] every once in a while.

    How do you define beauty?

    The people I see as beautiful are those who don’t bend to somebody else’s opinion of what is appropriate or beautiful. I’ve always been drawn to people who are unique, different, and just simply themselves. It makes me a bit sad when I see somebody unable to live in their own skin and not feeling comfortable in it. There are a lot of things in society that make people feel that way.

    Social media can make things tougher too.

    It’s really hard for young people today, [when] people are constantly judging and critiquing and having opinions. It’s funny—I feel like decades ago, to be different was actually the thing you wanted. Now I think it seems to be more desired to be with the masses, to blend, or be as good as or be similar to. My children don’t really do a lot of social media. I’m hoping they’ll have room to figure out what they like before they’re told by a bunch of other people what they should like or how they’re being perceived. My mom used to say when I was little, “Let me see your soul.” That was her thing. Whenever I’d get upset or something, she’d say, “Let me see your soul.” What it meant was, “Show me you. Are you mad? Let me see.” I’ve never really talked about that. I think, I hope anyway, that’s how I’m raising my children: Put what’s inside you forward and find you, figure out who you are. Beauty—everybody has a different opinion about what that is. Intellect is the most beautiful. When you see somebody who has a mind on fire, that’s sexy. A person who is empathetic and thoughtful and passionate—there’s nothing more attractive than that. There’s nothing you could wear or put on your face to cover up if your mind is blank and your heart is dark.

    You’re known as such a beauty—one of the most beautiful women in the world. How do you manage that?

    Thank you. I look in the mirror and I see that I look like my mother, and that warms me. I also see myself aging, and I love it because it means I’m alive—I’m living and getting older. Don’t love having a random dark spot from a pregnancy, sure. I see my flaws. But what I see that I like isn’t about a structure or an appearance. It’s more that I see my family in my face. I see my age.

    Statement by UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie on the Seventh Anniversary of the start of the Syrian Crisis
    “Today we mark another shameful milestone in the man-made tragedy that is the Syria conflict.

    This is a war that has been waged almost exclusively against civilians, who have been bombed, gassed, besieged, starved, tortured and displaced, for seven interminable years, in the full gaze of the world. Hundreds of thousands of innocent lives have been sacrificed to this senseless conflict.

    After seven years of war and atrocities we are beyond excuses. The Syrian refugees I have met are tired of empty promises and sympathetic statements, and rightly so. Everyone can see that the international community is not acting as it should, and that countries with influence in the conflict are putting their perceived interests ahead of international law and the rights of Syrian people, in a way that is nothing short of inhumane. We will be haunted in decades to come by our failure in Syria, as we are by other mass crimes of the recent past.

    My thoughts are with Syrian families, who have played no part in the conflict and whose homes, livelihoods and hopes have been destroyed, and with everyone working bravely to save life and alleviate suffering inside Syria, in unimaginably difficult circumstances.

    Until there is peace in Syria, we must stay the course in protecting those forced from their homes, wherever they are. This is the least that we can do.

    And I call again on the members of the United Nations Security Council acting with other nations to address the roots of the conflict – demanding not only a ceasefire and a diplomatic path out of the crisis, but justice and accountability for monstrous human rights violations committed against the Syrian people.”

    Notes to editors:

    6.1 million people have been forced from their homes inside Syria and 5.6 million refugees have sought safety beyond Syria’s borders.
    The conditions faced by civilians inside Syria are worse than ever, with more than two thirds now languishing in extreme poverty. Nine out of ten Syrian families spend more than half of their income on food. The price of food has increased eightfold since the start of the war. Millions of people require urgent assistance.
    The conditions for millions of Syrians in exile grow more desperate, with the vast majority living below the poverty line. More than three quarters of refugees in urban areas of Jordan and Lebanon are unable to meet their basic food, shelter, health or education needs.
    Many of Syria’s children know nothing but war, exile and hardship. Out of 1.7 million school-aged Syrian refugees, nearly half are still out of school.
    In order to meet massive humanitarian needs both inside Syria and in neighboring countries, an increase in support and solidarity by the donor community is urgently required.

    Perfumer Thierry Wasser Created Mon Guerlain Florale After Meeting Angelina Jolie

    Back in 2015, Guerlain’s president Laurent Boillot took a sample of Mon Guerlain, a fragrance which had yet to be released, to Cambodia to meet Angelina Jolie in the hopes of signing her as the face. “She trashed the bottle,” Guerlain’s in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser recalls—which at the time was a remake of a 1920’s bottle shaped like a bowtie—but she liked the scent. “I was saved,” he says. Yet Jolie didn’t just want to be a face, she wanted to a be a partner. She requested involvement with packaging, communication and of course, the bottle, and as history reveals, she got it. “I think I tap danced for two days,” Wasser recalls of his reaction to Jolie’s official commitment.

    Wasser got the chance to meet her and since he’d never met a Hollywood celebrity before, wasn’t sure to expect. He found her to be extremely focused and present. “Very often you meet people and they’re…texting,” he says. “You can feel that they’re not there. She was nothing like that.” Wasser talked to her about her work with the United Nations and the various causes she fights for such as women’s rights and children’s education, and he shared how he helps the emancipation of women in areas where he sources fragrance ingredients such as India, Africa and Latin America. “We had common ground in our conversations and eventually a bond was created.” That’s what led to his next creation, Mon Guerlain Florale.

    The flanker, which launched on March 1st, features a higher concentration of jasmine sambac than the original. On Wasser’s sourcing trips to India, he’d see the tiny white flower used in necklaces and offered at temples, festivals and weddings. “The flower has a social skill that’s very interesting to me,” he says. “When I met Madame Jolie, the strength and the feeling that was diffusing out of her led me to make an overdose of this wonderful flower.” Lavender, sandalwood and vanilla still figure in the formula but in different proportions. He compares the experience of both scents to music. “It’s the same sound but with a different orchestration. You recognize the musical theme of Mon Guerlain but the colour and texture is rather different.”

    Fragrance News: Angelina For Mon Guerlain Florale
    When Gueralin announced Angelina Jolie as the new face of their brand in 2017 I could not have been more excited. Angelina has been one of my biggest beauty muses since I was a teenager, and I had always wished she would step into the beauty world.

    The Parisian beauty brand felt like a perfect fit and the first campaign for the Mon Guerlain perfume was just as exquisite as one would expect. After finding great success with Angelina fronting their fragrance, Guerlain has now released a brand new Mon scent just in time for spring. Florale is said to be inspired by Jolie herself, exuding “subtle, elusive and desirable femininity”. If that doesn’t sound like the mother, actress/director, and philanthropist then I don’t know what does.
    What makes Angelina an even more beautiful brand ambassador is the fact that she choose to not profit from this union. Her entire Guerlain salary will be donated to the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation, a Cambodia-focused environmental charity.

    The fragrance’s bottle was designed by Gabriel Guerlain in 1908, and is laced with inviting hints of Sambac jasmine, Carla lavender, peony and vanilla. Both 1.6oz and 3.4oz bottles are available now ranging from $90-$124
