Celebrity beauty regrets revealed

Celebrity beauty regrets revealed

We’ve all had our share of beauty regrets over the years and it turns out celebs aren’t shy to voice their own! So if you’ve ever wanted to relate to a leading lady, now’s your chance… 

Nicole Richie

The Candidly Nicole star has a bit of tattoo regret, telling Into The Gloss about the time she got her name inked on the back of her neck, “I was a 19-year-old idiot when I got this [tattoo].” And word is she’s not too pleased with the tattoo of the word ‘virgin’ she got on her wrist when she was 16, describing it as “”embarrassing and desperate”.

Lucy Hale

The pocket-rocket and star of Pretty Little Liars remembered her teen years, errr, fondly when chatting to Total Beauty. “I think I wore too much make-up when I was too young. Too much bronzer. You know, the raccoon eyes? Way too much eye make-up. When you’re young, older people tell you that you’ll tone it down. I used to think, y’all are crazy. I’ll never be like that. But they were right!” 

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth dipped her toes in the Botox pool and didn’t love it. She revealed to Harper’s Bazaar, “I’ll try anything… except I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers! It feels like someone’s smacking your face with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it.”

Brittany Snow

The American actress told Stylecaster, “It was my 21st birthday, and I was promoting Hairspray, and I went to a woman who was waxing my eyebrows. She told me that I had a lot of baby hairs on my skin and she convinced me to wax my entire face. Well, I had an allergic reaction to the wax and I broke out in a severe red rash the night of my 21st birthday party. So in all the pictures, it looks like I have a really bad sunburn but it’s actually a rash that’s all over my face. They tried to cover it, but it was so bad. Now if anyone ever wants to wax anything on my face, I’m like, ‘no, thanks.’”

Cameron Diaz

Cameron’s also said she wished she’d skipped the Botox, saying she’d now prefer to see her face ageing. But that’s not her only regret. Back in 2012, she had her hair cut just before the Oscars and didn’t love it. While on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, she explained, “I said, ‘Oh I just want a little bit off’…and it went from here to here. I just burst into tears and started crying, and I felt so vulnerable.”

Kim Kardashian

Kimmy K’s biggest beauty regret is tending to her own brows. She couldn’t be happier brow artist to the stars Anastasia Soare now looks after them. She told Into The Gloss, “I look so different when I have my eyebrows done. Anastasia Soare does my brows. For two years she was asking me if she could do them and I was like, ‘No I don’t need it,’ because I would just do it myself. But then I let her and it changed my life – my whole face looked different. I used to make them really square in the middle and she rounded then a little bit.”

Sarah Jessica Parker

Remember how much you hated it when SJP cut her hair into that wavy bob? So did she. “Serge [Normant] cut it off for Sex and the City,” she told Yahoo. “That’s maybe a time to be forgotten and to never be discussed again!”

Helen Mirren

Helen regrets the tattoo she got of a small symbol on her thumb, but not because it lost its meaning or was a little bit silly. As she puts it, it happened a “very, very long time ago,” when she was “very, very drunk,” and was done while she was touring with a theatre group in Minnesota in the US. “I decided to get a tattoo because it was the most shocking thing I could think of doing … Now I’m utterly disgusted and shocked because it’s become completely mainstream, which is unacceptable to me.” 

Jennifer Aniston

Does she regret the famous ‘Rachel’ haircut? Absolutely, saying to Glamour, “I was not a fan of the ‘Rachel.’ That was kind of cringe-y for me. Looking back — honestly, even during that time — I couldn’t do it on my own. I needed (my hairstylist) Chris (McMillan) attached to my hip. Left to my own devices, I am not skilled with a hairbrush and blow-dryer.” She’s also spoken out about a bigger regret: not using sunscreen so much as a kid. Now, she’s given herself a “sun-tanning intervention”.

Megan Fox

This stunner is another one with brow woes, but in her case, she wishes she wasn’t so heavy-handed with the tweezers. She’s not the only one with thin brow regret, and thankfully these celeb brows are back on track and looking amaze.

Coca Rocha

The Canadian model revealed, “One time I had what was so cool in Canada, highlights in my hair – really blonde, straight thick highlights in my long dark hair and I remember my agent, same one, told me that was ‘very Canadian of me.’”

Victoria Beckham

When Victoria confirmed to Allure magazine that she had a boob job, she was quick to follow up with this: “I don’t have them anymore. I think I may have purchased them. Or they got removed, one or the other.”
