The Prince and Hermione Granger

Can you believe that Emma Watson and Prince Harry are dating?

She's definitely an attractive and intelligent woman. It's no surprise that Prince Harry is smitten by her. She's a spokesperson for Lancome, so what are her beauty tips?

1. Use a nude liner around your lips instead an obvious red one. Watson once remarked how a make-up artist outlined her lips with a nude pencil to give her the perfect shape. This is an awesome tip, sometimes it's hard to give that perfect outline when you use a bright red lip liner. As pretty as a red lip liner can be, any mistakes are quite noticeable. Nude lip liners are great for beginners or for the gal on the go.

2. She's a fan of Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover, of course she has to like Lancome/L'Oreal products. It's definitely a popular product. Watson commented on how well it removes make-up without having to scrub her eyes out. 

The key is to be very gentle when removing your eye make up. Soak a cotton ball with eye makeup remover and gently press it into your lashes to get rid of mascara and wipe away any eye makeup. Do not rub or scrub it away!! Stay away from waterproof eye make up for everyday use since it's a hassle to wash off. I only recommend it on special occasions.  The skin around your eyes is thin so if you are rough around that area it causes crow lines.  I know, sometimes my mind is on a different planet whenever I remove my makeup. But, I try to be focused when I wash off my eye makeup. Stay focus and be gentle!

I personally prefer Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. It's cheaper, you get a lot more product, and it does the job well. Body Shop often have sales. I have purchased this baby for $10 a couple of times on sale. Body Shop does offer promotions via those deal sites like LivingSocial and Groupon. So, take advantage of those.

3. She wears LancĂ´me Vernis in Love Nail Polish in Gris Angora. She loves the cool grey colour. 

A better option is Chanel Le Vernis Nail Polish in Frenzy. The Le Vernis nail polishes do not have formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP. Another option is Essie's Chinchilly, which is much cheaper.

4. She brushes her locks with a Mason Pearson Brush. I need to try one of these.

5. Make-up artist Linda Cantello taught her a cool trick when removing a mascara blunder. Take a cotton ball and dip it into some foundation. Then dab it on the mascara mistake, pretty nifty.
