3 Great Beauty Techniques for Aspiring Actresses
So you want to be an actress, and you’re on your way. How exciting and adventurous! Ask most seasoned Hollywood stars about their beauty tips, and some of them may reveal their favourite secrets while others will stay mum. We did some research and found a trio of fabulous beauty techniques for aspiring actresses.
1. Touching Up Roots
Most women colour their hair and/or add highlights and more, especially in the acting industry. Some touch-up roots on their own, and others choose to go to a salon professional for the pricey service.
Gwen Stefani had some advice a long time ago, namely in a 2012 Harper’s Bazaar interview where she shared how she maintains perfect platinum hair.
Her advice comes down to the Q-tip or cotton swab technique she learned from Hollywood’s timeless blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe.
According to Gwen, she had heard from beauty insiders that Marilyn would conceal her roots with a Q-tip dipped in dye every 10 days to avoid her dark roots showing.
Gwen also boasted to Harper’s Bazaar that you would never catch her with visible dark roots, and if she didn’t have time to do the Q-tip trick or have her colourist do it, then she’d put a hat on as part of fashion and a way to hide her telltale roots.
Meantime, it’s 2021, and most women enjoy wearing wigs and/or hair extensions, especially when they’re getting ready to have the perfect headshots for acting opportunities. Sometimes, Gwen Stefani will wear one or the other to give her platinum locks a rest and to get instant volume in her hair.
2. Having Gorgeous Skin
When the cameras are up close and personal, ask any celebrity about maintaining a clear, radiant, and youthful complexion. It’s very important because the cameras don’t lie and can pick up on any imperfection such as acne, deep lines, scars, and more.
Of course, ideal lighting can hide flaws and illuminate your skin, but sometimes, actresses are out on the red carpet in strong sunlight where there’s no place to hide.
Beautiful skin can be developed and kept at any age no matter what type of skin you have and the condition it’s in. Aspiring actresses are recommended to sit down with a dermatologist for advice and skincare treatments.
One of the most popular and modern facials of the moment is the HydraFacial, a 30-minute, medical-grade resurfacing treatment that delivers multiple benefits. It’s powerful and yet, gentle on even the most sensitive skin.
A skilled esthetician uses the pen-like HydraFacial wand in four steps: it cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin with anti-ageing serums that are infused into the pores for a glowing complexion.
3. Creating Sexy Eyes
Another modern beauty technique that many models and actresses have done is those glamorous, flirty eyelash extensions that look real and naturally like your own.
Having a salon expert apply them is a safe, relaxing, and beauty-game-changing trick.
When you wake up each morning, your eyes appear brighter and larger with long, dark, full, silky lashes that save you precious time getting glam. Your eyes are already “done” and ready to go!
Stars like Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez, Beyonce, and Katy Perry all adore lash extensions and the way these stunning black fibres are attached meticulously by hand to their natural eyelashes using a special adhesive.
Lash extensions are convenient and sexy for that doe-eyed look.
Being an aspiring actress is gutsy, fun, and sensational. Hair, skin, and makeup tips from stars can go a long way. We like these three techniques and hope you feel inspired!
