L’Oreal Paris Elnett Hair Spray ($7)

“Elnett is the go-to,” Mirren told us. “Every hairdresser that has ever had my hair go through their hands has used it. The smell of it has been with me for, I think, my whole life. I always say to hairdressers, ‘Elnett, really?’ And they all say, ‘Yes, it’s the best.’ Of all of the amazing products that have come out since it launched, I don’t know how long ago, it has been the consistent one.”

L’Oréal Intense Volume Matte Lipstick ($14)

L’Oréal Paris global makeup director Val Garland told us she loves using lip color as blush on mature skin. She’s used this L’Oréal lipstick on Mirren because it has hyaluronic acid, which promotes a “radiance within” look without looking shiny or greasy.

Castor oil

Vogue India reports that Mirren says she loves castor oil. “I use a little bit in my hair—very, very little. I use it on my fingernails. I use it on my skin,” she says. “Castor oil’s amazing. A tiny bit on your hair gives it a little shine, a little separation. [I use it on my] eyebrows, eyelashes, fingernails—just rub it in.”
