How does Christina get her glowing complexion? "I always have on blush, even when I'm not wearing anything else - it makes me look alive. It's the first thing I put on when I wake up," she tells the magazine.

As for her favourite makeup product, Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Pop Life is her fail-safe lip colour and Fresh Cannabis Rose is her signature fragrance.

"It helps me get into [character as] Joan, so I spray it on before I go to work," Christina says.

In fact, Joan Harris-inspired makeup has always been Christina's staple look.

"I've had a go-to look for years that's pretty similar to Joan Harris'," she says. "I do black liquid eyeliner along my top lashes, rosy cheeks, and pink, red, or coral lips. That feels the most me."

Just another reminder that vintage-inspired beauty never gets old.
