9 Times Emma Roberts Was a Bonafide Beauty Guru
Emma Roberts plays some of our favourite characters on screen—TBH we can't decide whether we love Scream Queens' Chanel Oberlin or AHSC's Madison Montgomery best—but it's her own, real-life personality that really has us enraptured.
A quick flick through Roberts' Instagram account reveals a woman who loves to read (right now she's all about Gloria Steinem's My Life on the Road, $24), is a beauty product junkie, and lives for Australian fashion labels. Is she just like us? Kinda. While we can't claim to be related to Julia Roberts, the actress' down-to-earth attitude towards beauty is something we can definitely relate to.
In honour of her birthday we're counting down 9 times Emma Roberts was a bonafide (if accidental) beauty guru. Keep scrolling for her best beauty quotes!
The secret to those tousled blonde strands? A less-is-more approach. "I never brush my hair. My mum would say, 'You have to brush your hair!' But I make sure to deep condition it once a week because it gets so dry."
"When I was younger, I would forget SPF and go to bed with makeup on, but as I got older, I had to kibosh those habits. You have to be on top of it—I used to not be good with my skincare and you could tell. There's nothing worse than going to bed and waking up for work the next morning with a pimple." (This advice stands even if your "work" isn't a TV show set.)
Where balance = sweet treats. "I try to be healthy, but I will have dessert. I always have Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Swedish Fish on set because I have to have something to look forward to. I’m not into gluten-free or diets like that. I do try to vary what I’m eating, though."
"I feel so good when I get a manicure. It’s sad to admit what a pep in my step a manicure gives me." So, we're not the only ones then...
Proof that messy buns work for anyone, anytime. "I love when I have a day off and I can just throw my hair up in a messy bun, not wear makeup, throw on sunglasses and jeans and a T-shirt and my favourite boots, and go get a coffee in the morning. That's when I feel real and happy."
"I feel like all of the people, specifically women, who I’ve always admired growing up and even now are never the people who are the most by-the-book beautiful on the outside, but are more someone who just lights up a room, someone who has things to talk about, and is smart and funny, and that whole package is magnetic. And so that to me is what true beauty is." Word.
