14 Unusual Beauty Hacks That Celebrities Use To Look Flawless
Sometimes, Hollywood stars may seem almost as unreachable in terms of beauty as the stars in the sky. However, it’s important to remember that they have actual teams of professionals who help them look flawless at all times. The good news is that celebrities also use helpful beauty hacks that they sometimes share, and we can use those, too.
We at Now I’ve Seen Everything gathered some of their most curious tricks right here.
1. Cameron Diaz applies eye drops to her acne.
Gucci Westman, Cameron Diaz’s makeup artist, has shared the actress’s secret for quickly getting rid of pimples. She says that after popping the pimple, the actress applies a medication that prevents infections in cuts on the skin and then applies eye drops. This way, she gets rid of the redness and swelling.
2. Some celebs comb their hair with a toothbrush.
It’s common to see celebrities on the red carpet with sleek updos who don’t have a single hair out of place. To make even those unruly hairs in the front stay put, they use a somewhat strange finishing touch: a toothbrush sprayed with hairspray. That way, the rest of the hairstyle is not messed up, and any unruly hairs keep still.
3. Victoria Beckham uses skincare with bird poo.
Victoria Beckham uses products with a dubious ingredient for shining skin — bird poo. The celebrity is a fan of traditional Japanese face products used by geishas. These products contain a paste made of nightingale droppings.
4. Chloë Grace Moretz washes her face with olive oil.
You may think that oil and acne have absolutely nothing to do with each other, but the actress, who had to battle cystic acne growing up, says that washing her face with olive oil helps her stay blemish-free.
5. Some celebrities wear foundation on their ears.
Celebrities’ ears can become their weak spot on the red carpet, as they sometimes look redder than the rest of their face. So they apply foundation beyond the circumference of their face, reaching all the way to the ears, past the hairline, and down to the neck as well. That way, their skin tone will look even and won’t have any contrasting areas.
6. Scarlett Johansson uses apple cider vinegar for skincare.
“I researched natural skincare and found that apple cider vinegar is really effective. Using it as a toner might be harsh, but if you have breakouts, it can be really healing,” Scarlett explained. Another trick the actress uses to look and smell impeccable is to mix her perfumes and not always wear the same one.
7. Shailene Woodley uses shampoo once a month.
The Divergent actress said that when she has short hair, she shampoos only once a month. “The oilier [the hair], the better,” she said. In addition, she considers it more favorable since she has to apply fewer products to her hair.
8. Sharon Stone jumps in the bathtub after putting on makeup.
Most people would think that the logical thing would be first to take a bath and then do your hair and makeup. Well, Stone does precisely the opposite. First, she puts on all her makeup, then jumps in the tub for a while. According to the actress, “the steam helps the makeup penetrate and makes my skin look dewy.” That is one of her best secrets to looking radiant on the red carpet, and it certainly works for her because she looks more beautiful and younger as the days go by.
9. Sandra Bullock uses phenylephrine under her eyes.
Sandra Bullock fights wrinkles in a very unusual way. She applies butt cream, known as phenylephrine, under her eyes. This substance is used to reduce inflammation and swelling.
10. Some celebrities use eyeshadow to whiten their teeth.
Celebrities smear creamy white eye shadow over their dentures if they need an extra boost of brightness and whiteness. It’s a temporary fix, but it’s hardly noticeable and will last long enough for posing and photo ops.
11. Uma Thurman takes milk baths.
Uma Thurman is a fan of milk baths. Cleopatra and Elizabeth I Queen of England used this method too. In addition to milk, essential oils and Epsom salt can be added to the bath. The AHAs in milk gently exfoliate the skin, making it smoother and more youthful. After taking such a bath, you just need to rinse the body with plain water.
12. Miranda Kerr curls her eyelashes with a spoon.
Motherhood means you have less time for beauty routines. If you used to take your time applying masks and creams on your face, having a child might complicate things. That happened to Miranda Kerr, who uses an ingenious trick to curl her eyelashes: she does it with a spoon. The model said that she first applies a coat of mascara and then pinches them between her thumb and the spoon.
13. Julianne Hough whitens her teeth with turmeric.
Dancer and actress Julianne Hough whitens her teeth with turmeric, which seems like a weird choice at first glance because we know how difficult it is to remove stains left by this yellow powder.
However, Hough firmly believes in the antibacterial properties of turmeric. She claims that her teeth don’t turn yellow, saying, “You’d think it would be the opposite, and it’d stain your teeth, but it actually makes them whiter. Tumeric is the bomb. Y’all should try it.”
14. Nicole Kidman cleanses her hair with juice.
Nicole Kidman has always had beautiful, shiny hair. For the actress, one way to take care of her hair is to wash it with different juices depending on what color it is. “If you have red hair, try washing it with cranberry juice,” she said.
