Oh Chrissy Teigen, you are just so relatable. Aside from the fact that you’re drop dead gorgeous, a successful millionaire entrepreneur, a Sports Illustrated cover girl, a New York Times best selling author and married to EGOT winner John Legend, we are pretty sure we have everything else in common. So of course, when you shared your biggest beauty regret with Popsugar, we were all: “Us too, Chrissy, us too.”
“I, like a lot of people, really didn’t like full eyebrows at one point. I remember just totally taking almost all of them off. I was so into a superhigh arch, and they were so thin, and I can’t believe to this day that they ever came back, honestly. My edges don’t grow anymore — I don’t have a tail on my eyebrows anymore,” she said.
And really, who hasn’t had many overzealous moments with their tweezers, only to discover that the full brows they once wrestled with were now back in style with a vengeance?
“My dad always told me, ‘You have Brooke Shields brows. Stop plucking them!’ And even when I first met John, I remember him mentioning how he loved a thick brow, and I was like, ‘Oh. OK.'”
When asked about insecurities, she mentioned that her under-chin area was an area of concern. (The girl is relatable, what’d we tell you?) “When I got pregnant, I gained 60-some pounds, and little Miles was only like four pounds of it. Because my face is so round, I try to make sure I do a nice bronze-y contour that doesn’t look too in your face. But I like to bring out dimension in my face and under my chin.”
As for the weirdest thing Chrissy’s done for beauty(apart from her armpit lipo, which she credits as “dumbest, stupidest thing I’ve ever done”)? The PRP blood facial — otherwise known as the vampire facial. During the treatment, plasma from the client’s own blood is injected back into the skin via microneedling. “To this day, I don’t have any idea what it does, aside from that it hurt so much,” she shared. “Because I was breastfeeding, I couldn’t use lidocaine. So my doctor was like, ‘I haven’t seen many people try this without the lidocaine.’ I said, ‘Let’s try it.’ Oh, and they do a pass along your mustache of this needle roller. The face hurt for sure. I was like, ‘I can’t believe I’m doing this.'”
Yep, she’s just like us.
