This is particularly true in youth-obsessed Hollywood, where Botox injections and other cosmetic procedures are par for the course. Naomi Watts is yet to go to these lengths, but she understands why many of her peers have taken the plunge and doesn’t judge them for doing so.
“Personally, I feel for me it’s tough to do Botox — but it’s also tough not to! Sometimes, I think I need the help,” the 47-year-old actress tells NewBeauty.
“Of course, I want to look the best I can, but I am playing characters that should match my age and the women and the material that I am interested in are usually going through something. I have to be able to live in my face and tell the story of the character I’ve taken on. But… I’ll never say never.”
Though Watts is still on the fence about Botox, there are two techniques she swears by for a ‘youthful’-looking appearance.
One is the Triad Facial, which involves microdermabrasion, LED light therapy and a gentle peel, and the other is a simple makeup trick that happens to be far more affordable for the rest of us mere mortals. Listen up.
“I once had a makeup artist tell me to wear blush as high as possible, on my cheekbones,” she tells the magazine, as People reports.
“You almost want to apply it under your eyes. It’s a good trick; it really does make it look better, yet it looks natural.”
Now, if you’re accustomed to swirling your blush over the ‘apples’ of your cheeks — as we’ve long been instructed to do — you probably think this technique sounds odd.
