SELF magazine has compiled some beauty tips from Hayley along with advice from experts. They’ve listed a bunch of products that Hayley uses and included a few of their own recommendations based on her tips.
“I like nails that are loud and vibrant.”
Nails can be an accessory you have fun with. “My mom couldn’t get me out of the house unless I got to wear two different-colored socks,” Williams remembers. “I think of nails the same way.”
Your Mix-’n'-Match Mani Plan
Consider your coloring. Even out-there shades should be flattering. Orange, neon pink and red enhance warm skin tones; purple, mauve or yellow work with cool, says Roxanne Valinoti, a lead nail stylist in NYC for CND. To tell, look at your veins: Greenish equals warm; blue, cool.
Give a twist to a classic. One idea is to do a French mani with a neutral base but a bold tipâ€”pale pink with orange, pink or blueâ€”so you get the best of both worlds.
Hayley’s Favorite Nail Colors
“I love yellow on my nails,” she says. “It complements my pale skin.” Try OPI Nail Lacquer in Need Sunglasses?, $9.
“I’m really into sea-foam greenâ€”’70s bathroom style.” We like OPI Nail Lacquer in Go on Green!, $9.
“I pick my lipstick by my mood.”
Quick Tips for Bold Lips
Play with intensity. Coral, fuchsia and red can go all-out bright or more mellow. For the latter, use a stain, not a stickâ€”the no-wax pigment lets your natural lip color show through. Up the vibrancy by applying lipstick in the same shade on top, says Joanna Schlip, a celebrity makeup artist for Physicians Formula.
Keep the rest of your makeup natural. To make sure you don’t overdo blush, apply lipstick first. Then you can gauge exactly how much more color, if any, your face needs.
Hayley’s Favorite Lipsticks
A matte true red that doesn’t sacrifice shine, MAC lipstick in Russian Red, $15, is one of her staples.
Williams loves MAC lipstick in Fusion Pink, $15. “It’s a rad color for people who like lipsticks that pop,” she says.
During her Warped Tour last summer, the singer wore the rich purple-pink Urban Decay Lip Envy stain in Greedy, $17.
“A cat eye is my go-to. It’s so easy!”
Lightning-Fast Liner Tricks
Create a straight line every time. Cast your gaze down and trace along your lashes (pulling lids can make an uneven line), and then slightly past the outer corner to get the little wing, Schlip says. Stick to Sharpie-like tips or gels, which draw smoothly.
Don’t be afraid to go beyond basic black. “Color is more daytime-friendly than you think, since you use such a thin line,” Schlip notes. Baby-step into color with dark versionsâ€”forest green, navy or plumâ€”of brights you like.
Hayley’s Cat-Eye Staples
“It’s like using a marker on your eyes,” says Williams. MAC Penultimate Eye Liner in Rapidblack, $18.
Williams wants eye makeup to last through setsâ€”she prefers sweatproof formulas such as Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner in Navy Blue, $22.
“It stays on foreverâ€”and I love browns and golds,” she says of Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow Liners in Busy Signal, $19.
“I love skin to have a no-makeup look.”
It’s hard not to be envious of Williams’s seemingly poreless complexion. But even if you need a little more coverage, you can get a flawless complexion without caking it on.
Cover up sparingly. Women use more foundation than they need, Schlip explains. Not every inch of skin requires makeup! Conceal pesky spots only: dark circles, blemishes and redness.
Put skin in the spotlight. Rub a pinky-peach cream highlighter on cheekbones to give radiance to mostly bare skin. “It makes it look lit from within,” Schlip says.
Hayley’s Favorite Skin Products
“I wear this every day!” she says of Benefit Benetint lip and cheek stain, $28.
For light coverage plus sun protection, Williams swears by Tarte Smooth Operator Natural Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, $36.
Williams protects her skin with Peter Thomas Roth SPF 45 mineral powder, $30
“The healthier my hair, the better it looks.”
Smart Shine Savers
Shield your hair. The sun is a dye job’s biggest shine stealer. UV rays oxidize pigment and quickly make color dull and brassy, says Marie Robinson, owner of Marie Robinson salon in NYC. Spray on leave-in conditioner with UV blockers to lock in color.
Get a trim before a touch-up. Because ends are older than the hair near your roots, they’re also the most damaged and dull. Cutting off that bottom inch can make your hair look like you just got it dyed, Robinson says.
Hayley’s Favorite Hair Helpers
Her healthy-hair secret: Moroccanoil Oil Treatment, $32. “I put it in my hair, and then let it air-dry.”
Williams’s ponytail must: rainbow-colored Emi-Jay hair ties, $11 for five. “They don’t break my hair.”
