10 Bizarre Celebrity Beauty Confessions

10 Bizarre Celebrity Beauty Confessions

Every now and then I feel pretty gross, normally when I slap on a Biore Pore Strip and look at the used patch a little too long (seriously the aftermath of those strips is the most fascinating thing ever). I'm also guilty of picking my split ends and biting my nails (this is why the boys don't come to my yard huh?), I'm human as are A Listers, who admittedly have some bizarre approaches to beauty. Below are 10 of the weirdest "beauty tips" from the world of celebrity I have found.

10 Bizarre Celebrity Beauty Confessions

Kim Kardashian - One of the biggest beauty icons commits, what most would deem the biggest beauty sin, yep she sleeps in her make-up. Her reasoning? It saves time the next day and allows her to be lazy; she even divulged further that it was the one and only Charlotte Tilbury who inspired her to try it after finding out, that Charlotte Tilbury has never allowed her husband to see her sans make up. Both are utterly beautiful women but I'm afraid this is not a trend I'll be trying out any time soon.

Cameron Diaz - As a fellow adult acne sufferer, I am a little surprised to learn that she lances blemishes. I've read an interview, in which she confesses she somewhat knicks blemishes to encourage them to heal quicker. I can't say I'm overly convinced it will work and worry that it could result in the skin scarring - to each their own.

Salma Hayek - Going against all your Mother taught you when you were a child is Salma Hayek, who doesn't wash her face in the morning. Her reasoning? While you sleep your skin self repairs and by washing your face in the morning you are rinsing away all the complexion boosting goodness. A part of me thinks she may be onto something, she is utterly gorgeous; the other and perhaps more logical part, knows that skin renewal happens below the skins surface and is not something you can simply wash away come the A.M.

Snookie - Once upon a time Jersey Shore was my guilty T.V pleasure and I did wonder what the girls wore in terms of make-up, not to emulate but rather out of sheer curiosity. Given the show, it should come as little surprise that Snookie's attitude to facial scrubs is a little unconventional - her go to mask is made out of (clean) kitty litter. I'll skip thank you very much.

Jessica Simpson - Ever wondered the secret behind Jessica Simpson's bright, white smile? Apparently it has nothing to do with toothpaste! Yep I have just learnt that Ms.Simpson does not brush her teeth daily as she doesn't like them to feel "too slippery". Rather sometimes she wipes skips brushing in favour of wiping her teeth on an old t-shirt. I'm speechless and wonder what her Dentist thinks?

Miranda Kerr - Not the oddest beauty advice I've read in a long while but still a little out there is Miranda Kerr, who uses Vaseline as a highlighter around the eye area and curls her eyelashes using a spoon? Both are fairly gentle but I'm quite happy with straight lashes and The Balm Mary Lou Highlighter for the time being.

Lady Gaga - Given the personality I'd imagine you'd expect really bizarre beauty advice? Not really the case with Lady Gaga - to remove eye make up, rumour has it that she uses tape. I'm not quite sure how you'd put that into practice? Perhaps she simply uses it to tidy up make-up or grab those pesky, loose strands of glitter? Who knows. I've also read that she likes to tape back her neck and eyes as a mini face lift.

Suki Waterman - The secret behind her tousled, wavy locks? Rinsing her hair with a can of Coca-Cola. As lovely as her tresses may be, I'm in no rush to dip my hair in a fizzy, sticky, concoction all in the name of texture. I prefer my Coca-Cola cherry tinged and in a glass.

Demi Moore - My guess is that Demi Moore is not squeamish as she is a fan of Leech Therapy Detox. For those a little more curious than I (you lost me at Leeches), this involves attaching Leeches to the skin and allowing them to draw blood. The supposed benefits? Brighter skin and general improved health. I'll keep my dull skin over attaching Leeches to my skin - grim!

Kate Hudson - This is a tip that you may want to avoid in the Winter months but for a quick, radiant glow Kate Hudson swears by dunking her face in ice cold water. Brr!

  1. Your obsession with the Biore pore strips is perfectly normal! I actually think it's really strange Charlotte Tilbury always sleeps in her makeup although I'm not as surprised Kim K does it! I love a nice clean face slathered in moisturiser before bed though!

    1. I do wonder how much of it is perhaps taken out of context? That being said I'm with you on the fresh face and moisturiser before bed - I actively look forward to removing my make-up off at night ha!

  6. Oh dear! There are some really odd ones there! The only one I kind of half subscribe to is Salma Hayek's thinking behind not washing your face in the morning. Although I do wash my face with water, I don't use a cleanser in the morning because I cleanse thoroughly every evening and just a splash of water in the shower and the steam work fine for me.

    1. I can see her logic, well almost ha! My problem is that I have very oily skin and slather myself in lotions and potions before bed so it would be pretty grim if I didn't wash my face. That and washing my face is a lot like brushing my teeth, I'm in the habit of doing it and would feel "wrong" skipping either step. Gosh I don't half ramble ;)

  7. Wow! People are just not as 'clean' as you think!

  8. I absolutely love Biore pore strips and examining the gunk on them! I find it more fascinating than gross.

    I think it's pretty appalling that Charlotte Tilbury's husband has never seen her with makeup. Sounds like a severe self-esteem/mental problem (unless it's a high-maintenance thing) that she is impressing onto her clients. Just the thought of sleeping in makeup makes me shudder. Kim's poor pores.

    1. Isn't it so much fun! I wish you could get a pore strip come mask so I could clear all my pores in one quick step ha! I do wonder if the CT quote was taken out of context? You know how magazines can be?

  9. CT clarifies what she means about the whole sleeping in make-up.You can find it on Caroline Hirons latest VLOG

  10. I can't believe Kim K sleeps in her makeup, especially with the amount of it she wears. She says it saves her time in the morning, does she mean she just touches it up and then gets on with her day? I would have thought it would make your morning routine a whole lot longer having to try and cleanse off all that makeup, dirt, oil, sweat etc that's been smushed into your face so that must mean she doesn't remove it in the morning?? x

  11. Wow... These are interesting! I'm definitely too squeamish to use leech therapy, does she use them on her face? Wouldn't that leave scars??
