Brie Larson on Self-Care, Scent, and Channelling the Confidence of Her Role in Captain Marvel
With work on pause, Brie Larson decided to start a YouTube channel back in July as a way to express herself and talk about important issues. In the four short months she's been creating videos, Larson has broached topics from Animal Crossing to social justice, made a vegetarian Crunch Wrap Supreme with a two-foot courgette from her garden, and explored 39 ways to calm down — something we could all use this year.
Although 2020 is a slow year for films (her next project is Captain Marvel II, where she plays the lead, and is in preproduction but isn't scheduled to come out until 2022), Larson has been busy with a new type of role — this time in the beauty industry. The Japanese beauty brand Decorté Cosmetics announced Larson as its new muse for its 50th anniversary and its "Embrace Your True Beauty" campaign. "I just love the products," Larson told POPSUGAR of her new partnership. "There's a sense of ritual to them, but it's not like it's like a multistep process. I'm still simple at the end of the day; I only like to use a couple of things."
Ahead, Larson shares more of those out-of-the-box ways she's learned to calm her nerves, how her relationship with beauty has changed in 2020, and the movie role that has forever changed her life and self-confidence.
