Lily Collins Speaks on Her ‘Less is More’ Beauty Routine

Posted by PZ on July 17th, 2017


Actress Lily Collins has opened up on her beauty routine. The Lancome face says she is a big makeup fan but still believes “less is more” when it comes to putting it on. She thinks makeup should highlight someone’s beauty but not overpower it. She prefers to leave makeup experiments for big events or nights out when it is more appropriate to wear dramatic beauty looks. She said:

“I’ve always been a big fan of ‘less is more’ – the idea that you can accept a little help to accentuate what you already and bring that extra sparkle. I like to save the dramatic moments for events or photo shoots. I like doing [makeup] fast. The more you have on your face the more there is to go wrong.”

Lily is known for her famously thick eyebrows and reveals that kids used to comment on them at school but over time she learned to embrace her thick brows and realizes now that they are a special feature of her face. She thanks her mother for leading her in the right direction and teaching her to embrace her eyebrows as a positive part of her look:

“Kids were commenting on them at school so I got the tweezers. [When my mom saw what I did] she was staring at me across the dinner table and said, not happily, ‘You’ve changed something about your face.’ Brows are the statement piece of the face, and I’ve learned to embrace mine over the years. And I guess they speak for themselves now that they apparently have their own Twitter account.”
