Into the Gloss' Top Shelf series is one of our favorite beauty reads ever for two main reasons: First, it presents women, including some of the most famous in the world, in a candid, intimate light—you can really feel their passion and interest while reading the first-person narratives. Second, it helps us discover tons of great beauty products, no less those loved by women we admire!
One of the most interesting Top Shelf entries that captured our attention? Emma Watson's! The Beauty and the Beast actress just unveiled her go-to products and, let us tell you, her list is good. Here are a few gems from her beauty tell-all:
1. She'll never go to bed without thoroughly cleansing her face.
"No matter what, I always wash my face at night. I could get back from a shoot at 4 a.m. and still cleanse, tone, and moisturize before going to bed. People are amazed by this, but it's just one of those self-care practices that I really enjoy," she shares, citing bad skin during puberty as having disciplined her.
2. She treats her brows with pubic hair oil.
Emma's secret to her gorgeous full brows? Jane Iredale's Pure Brow Gel, a tinted browcara, and Fur Oil For Pubic Hair. Speaking of the latter, she explains, "I’ll use that anywhere from the ends of my hair to my eyebrows to my pubic hair. It's an amazing all-purpose product."
3. Her favorite lip tint is guaranteed to be kiss-proof.
"On a daily basis, I'll always use the Red Pomegranate Cheek and Lip Stain from The Body Shop… I like that you can kiss someone while you're wearing it and it's not going to come off," Emma says.
4. Japanese drugstore mascara is just about the only mascara she uses.
Emma "swears by" the DHC Mascara Perfect Pro Double Protection for films that require her to shoot in a tank or under the rain. According to her, it "only comes off in warm water… [It] doesn't run because it won't move in cold water. And the brush is really nice."
5. She hasn't fallen for the whole mask craze.
To quote Emma, "Meh." LOL!
6. Her approach to facial hair is so genuine and relatable.
"I bleach my top lip and tweeze my eyebrows and you'd never get to see that, even though it's a part of my routine. There's still so much shame around the things you do to get ready while you've got a towel wrapped around your head. It's important to me not to edit that out."
