I plead guilty to changing my beauty routine frequently. It’s like going through boyfriends, I’m just trying to find the right one.
I want gorgeous dewy skin, perfectly groomed brows, and the ability to wear classic red lipstick. Basically, I want Emma Watson’s beauty routine. Want to know how she always looks so naturally gorgeous? Here are her secrets…
1. Create your classic look
Emma’s look is classical, utterly feminine and striking – three things I want to embody, and rock. With so many products it’s easy to get lost in labels and not understand what you’re putting on your face. Trust me, I know. But Emma has done all the worrying for us as she is very concerned with sustainability. She only likes to use organic products that aren’t harmful to the skin but enriches it. Well, that makes sense…
French pharmacies have been described as the best beauty and health destination. With a medical, gentle approach to the face allows Emma to achieve the famous less-is-more-look. Spend more time on your skincare than your makeup. Always wash your face, no matter what time you come stumbling through the door.
French Girl Organics has a range that is perfect for a flawless complexion, I love their packaging and they really work! With over 5,000 five-star reviews, you’re missing out if you haven’t tried this product. Buy it here.
2. Get lippy
Lipstick can lift any outfit, and it truly overworks your look. Wearing lipstick makes me feel like a woman and a woman in charge. It is a perfect confidence booster that also enhances your day-to-day look. And Emma swears by it!
Start off by exfoliating your lips with a toothbrush which will remove all impurities, and have your lips soft and smooth. Use a nude lip liner, which will help you shape the perfect Cupid’s bow and define your lips. Then, as we’re going for an intense look; blot off the first layer and reapply the color of your choice. Charlotte Tilbury’s Hot Lips lipstick in Carina’s Love is the perfect classic red. Buy it here.
3. Don’t doubt the brow
I was slow to the eyebrow trend and scared of it. Being blonde made it even more difficult to get the look right. Even these days I don’t think I’ve mastered the Cara brow. But in an era where the brow is dominating, one needs to up their game.
People underestimate the power of the brow. Use it. Get them threaded regularly and use a brow powder like Ka-Brow by Benefit, which is one of the best-selling brow products around (and used by our brow heroine Desi Perkins might we add!). You don’t have to be too dramatic with it, remember soft and natural – you’re creating hairs not shading in. Buy it here.
