Olivia Colman wore this £13 foundation to the Oscars

December will have seen many of us watching Olivia Colman return to our screens in the most recent series of The Crown, which streams on Netflix. The talented actress always seems to look flawless — and it’s just been revealed that her go-to skin and makeup brand is the UK’s very own No7. In fact, she even wore their affordable foundation to the Oscars on the red carpet. 

Colman’s makeup artist Sarah Uslan has over the course of this year shared her go-to routine via Instagram, which includes both makeup and skincare from the beloved No7 line. Uslan noted to New Beauty this year that No7 products are ‘are not only beautiful, but also accessible and affordable,’ and it was revealed on Instagram that is was the Protect & Perfect ADVANCED All in One Foundation that she used on Colman at the Oscars in February 2020.

The foundation claims to blur out fine lines and pores, even out skin tone, and create a gorgeous flawless finish, largely thanks to its patented anti-wrinkle peptide technology. And luckily for us, the product is currently only £13.12 at Boots, as opposed to its usual £17.50.

But that’s not where Colman’s No7 obsession stops — in fact, her makeup artist uses a bunch of the brand’s products on her as a No7 partner. Skincare prep is essential, according to Uslan, and she achieves Colman’s enviable glow by using a specific line from No7. 

Speaking of her Oscars look, Uslan explained, ‘With the right skincare prep, a bright lip or smoky eye will look even better. For Olivia, I used the No7 Early Defence Regimen, from the serum to the moisturiser.’

The Early Defence range includes the Glow Activating Serum, and the Day Cream, both of which cost £25 or less, and are currently even cheaper than their usual price points thanks to Boots’ offers.
