‘Riverdale’ Fans, Rejoice! Camila Mendes Breaks Down Her Best Hair and Makeup Tips
If you’re a fan of Riverdale, then you already know that Camila Mendes, who plays the ever-badass Veronica Lodge, absolutely slays the beauty game both on and off-screen. Question is, how does the average viewer replicate her flawless look? Well, you’re in luck, y’all. Speaking exclusively with Life & Style magazine, the actress, 24, broke down her hair and makeup favorites.
Let’s begin with Cami’s gorgeous locks, shall we? “My hair isn’t straight or curly, it’s this weird in-between,” she explained. “Some pieces are straighter than others, some pieces are wavy — it’s very frustrating. My secret is using John Frieda FrizzEase Serum. It moisturizes my tips, reduces the frizz on the top of my head and smooths everything out.”
Ummm, sounds pretty legit, if you ask us. As for the single hair product the CW star can’t live without? It’s also the same brand. “When I’m working on set and I get my hair done, I like to come home and keep a reduced version of that same hairstyle for the next day — and the John Frieda Wave Refresh Spray has been perfect for maintaining hairstyles,” Camila dished.
Now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for … makeup tips! The raven-haired beauty explained the core differences between her two types of glam. “For day, I’ll usually do my foundation and concealer, put some mascara on, fill in my brows and call it a day. For night or the red carpet, I like to play a little bit more with my eyes and add a little pop with some shimmer or color on the eyelids and definition under my eyes.”
Of course, we have to take a second to specifically highlight Camila’s eyebrows because they are perfection. “Honestly, I was lucky enough to be born with the shape. But I tweeze them myself and just try to keep them full and I don’t fuss with them too much.” If there’s *one thing* you take away from this, ladies, it’s do not over-tweeze your eyebrows … EVER.
