has dished out plenty of top beauty tips over the years, but here are some of
her most unique ideas for hair, makeup and skincare. From the perfect cateye
flick created with liquid eyeliner to her favourite budget-friendly facial
soap, Alexa’s tips are simple, stylish and definitely original – she even
advises skipping haircare to create the perfect bedhead look.
1. The Perfect Red Lip
red lips and her favourite is a MAC shade: "MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger is
the perfect pillar box red lipstick and it does not move. I went swimming in a
waterfall for an entire day and emerged from the water with a full lip intact."
2. Groomed Brows & Lashes
eyebrows and lashes frame a face: “Brow shape is so important for framing your
face. And always curl your lashes; it really does open up your eyes."
3. Facial Soap
She uses a
cheap facial soap: "Solros-Tval Swedish Dream Sunflower Facial Soap is
good—I use it as my face wash. I love it mostly because of the packaging; I
give it to people for Christmas in a stocking. Plus, it doesn’t dry out my skin
too much, and it says it’s made of egg whites, and it’s five bucks. Though I’m
not very good about washing my face; I don’t really do it before bed."
4. Skip Haircare
even brushes her hair: "Not brushing your hair can work in your favour.
Firstly because you can indulge any lazy tendencies you may have and secondly
because neatness is overrated. Sometimes I wash my hair and don't touch it to
get the ultimate beach head. It dries curly!"
5. Precise Eyeliner
never without eyeliner: "My technique is to start with the little flicks
on the outside first, and then fill it in. Sometimes, I’ll do just a tiny line
for a brunch, but if I’m going out for the night, then I’ll experiment with
thicker lines. If you mess it up, then you just have to go with the flow and it
becomes a full look."
