Emma Watson has no shame in her beauty game!
The Beauty and the Beast star recently opened up to Into the Gloss about her favorite cosmetics. Not only does she reveal what's in her go-to makeup bag, but she also gets candid on the product she uses, ahem, down there.
"It's funny -- I was just talking to my friend before this about how in the Instagram era it's so easy to edit your life so that it looks perfect," she confessed. "But 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," she continued. "I've been bleaching my top lip since I was 9. I don't do it very often, but I do it! There's that, and I use Fur Oil. 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."
According to the product description, Fur Oil's unique blend of lightweight oils "softens pubic hair and clears pores for fewer ingrowns and healthier skin." Watson prefers to use these types of products in the bath, as opposed to showers.
"I have a bath every single day of my life," she admitted. "And if I can have two or three -- amazing. Nothing terrible is going to happen in the bath, so I always find time for that. I'll take phone conversations in the bath, anything."
When it comes to foundation, Watson told the outlet that over time, she's become a big fan of the fresh-faced look.
"The object for me when applying makeup is you should be able to see as much skin as possible," she explained. "As I've gotten older, I've embraced my freckles much more and I want to be able to see them."
"When we were filming Beauty and the Beast, I insisted on keeping my freckles as a part of the movie," she continued. "There are so many young girls who are going through puberty who really hate having them, so I felt the need to say that I have them and that I think the look of natural skin is beautiful. I didn't want to get blanked out!"
Some of her favorite products for achieving this feminine glow? RMS 'Un' Cover-Up Concealer and Powder and The Body Shop's Red Pomegranate Cheek and Lip Stain.
"It's something I always wear because A) it doesn't really look like makeup and B) I tend to get very pale," she said. "I'm not someone who has a ton of pink in her skin, so I get washed out without a bit of color added to my face."
When she does want to make a bold statement, however, Watson says you can't go wrong with a dab of red lipstick.
"If I'm doing my makeup myself, I do quite a clean eye and a matte red lip," she dished. "The red lip always comes out if something important is happening. I did it on graduation day, and I did it for the Women's March!"
"There's a brand called Lily Lolo, they do really nice red," she added. "Inika is another brand that does beautiful colors. And Marion Cotillard's makeup artist [Isabelle Carron] has a line called Absolution Cosmetics and he makes an amazing collection of matte lipstick shades. They're incredible."
In addition to sharing her favorite products with Into the Gloss, she also gave fans her best skincare tips and tricks.
"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," she revealed. "People are amazed by this, but it's just one of those self-care practices that I really enjoy. I think it's because when I was going through puberty -- particularly around ages 14 and 15 -- I had really bad skin. So when you get in a good place [with] your skin, you really appreciate it and try to take care of it."
The brunette beauty swears by a combination of Évolué's Gentle Cleanser and Firming Toner and MV Organics' Rose Plus Booster and Rose Soothing and Protective Moisturizer.
