Gemma Chan has divulged the secret to mastering her go-to "snog lip look".

In a new video tutorial for Vogue, the Crazy Rich Asians actress opened up about her daily skincare routine and favourite beauty products.

After detailing the way she does her concealer and eyeshadow, Gemma explained how she goes about achieving a smudge-free red lip.

"I'm going to show you a modern red lip. On the red carpet sometimes, I've done it quite strong, with a red lip liner, really defined it. This is much easier to wear... a make-up artist showed me this trick - I think she called it 'snog lip look' - I don't know if you Americans know what snogging is. It's... make-out lips. Snogging lips," she smiled, before taking the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Eyeliner. "Rather than using a red lip liner, I like to do an invisible lip line, so I'm going to use this."

Gemma then grabbed her L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche No. 125 Maison Marais lipstick, a blue-based red, and applied the pigment to the centre of her pout.

"The trick is, we use a fluffy eyeshadow brush and we just gently buff out the colour," the 38-year-old continued. "Again, we don't want any hard lines. We're not doing any hard lines. Really soft focus. The great thing about this is it's a really easy way to wear a red look. I'm not going to be worried about it smudging...ending up all over half of my face even if I'm wearing a mask. Don't really want a Joker situation going on!"
