Leonardo DiCaprio is undoubtedly a man of many talents, but the actor can now add beauty influencer to his already-burgeoning resume. Genetically blessed or otherwise, the Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood star is no stranger to a little primping and preening, especially when it comes to a red carpet appearance.

It’s been revealed on Instagram that on the day of the Golden Globes, Sonia Lee (an iconic men’s groomer who worked with him on the day) used Kosas Lip Fuel in Baseline (clear) to hydrate his pout. It’s an apt choice for the activist, given that Kosas is a cruelty-free, clean beauty brand founded by scientist and cool-girl Sheena Yaitanes. Lip Fuel is a gel-balm hybrid that contains hyaluronic acid to retain moisture and konjac root to seal it in. It’s minty fresh, so perfect for rubbing shoulders with the who’s who of Hollywood, and gives a subtle sheen that pretty much says says “I’m hydrated”. The balm is in fact, one of my personal favourites, and knowing that Leo is also a fan just makes me love it even more.


Kosas was founded in 2015 and exists to squash the confusion surrounding beauty, specifically makeup. It taps into that perfect undone, effortless beauty mood with washed out colours, easy textures and natural finishes. While the balm is Leo’s product of choice, I can also recommend the Tinted Face Oil (the perfect, dewy anti-foundation) and 10-Second Liquid Shadow (the easiest single-coloured eye ever). Editor (and actor) approved.
