Some of her other makeup bag must-haves include Age Perfect Luminous Hydrating Lipstick, Radiant Serum Foundation and Lash Magnifying Mascara.

Mirren became an ambassador for the beloved drugstore brand six years ago in 2014 and now, she’s the face of L’Oréal Paris’ new Age Perfect Makeup campaign.
