Henry Cavill became the latest man in tights this past weekend, as he tackles the coveted role of Superman in Man of Steel. Sure, Clark Kent may have taught us that a pair of glasses can go a long way when changing a person’s appearance, but we actually learned a ton of beauty lessons from some of our favourite superheroines over the years. Here are our top Superhero Beauty Secrets…
Never Underestimate the Power of Classic Femme Fatale Makeup
It doesn’t matter if you’re covering most of your face because you’re secretly Catwoman at night, or if you’re simply a dental hygienist who has to wear one of those unsightly blue masks over your face during the day. A hot dose of smoky eye makeup will make you feel oh-so feminine as you’re swinging your lethal tail or wielding that dental floss like it ain’t no thang.
Eyebrows, Eyebrows, Eyebrows!
Maybe you’re trying to get your posse of X-Men to take your telepathic and telekinetic powers more seriously, or maybe you just want the hot bartender at Czehoski to think you have some kind of connection. A good eyebrow shaping always does the trick.
Head Pieces Are Timeless
It doesn’t matter if your Google Calendar has you booked for “saving the world” at 11:30am, or just has you reserved for an annoying Skype conference with the head office. A kick-ass head piece will show everyone who’s boss.
Embrace Premature White Hair
It’s never been hotter to rock white hair. People like Kelly Osbourne have jumped on the trend, and more and more actors are going grey on schedule these days. It doesn’t matter if your premature white hair is a result of a childhood trauma that left you with superhuman powers, or if you’ve been dying your hair for so long that you didn’t realize you’d gone completely white underneath all that faux colour, because 2013’s the year to let it grow out in style.
Use A Leave-In Conditioner
Back flips and roundhouse kicks can really do a number on naturally curly hair, as can jumping jacks at BodyPump at GoodLife Gym on your lunch break. There’s no need to look like you spent the day in the back seat of a convertible. A good leave-in conditioner like Sally Herschberger Curvaceous Elasto-Curl Daily Treatment will let you rock perfect ringlets all day, no matter how superhuman or just plain super and human your day happens to be.
